Featuring…


Once again this year’s Global Figure Symposium is graciously hosted by Matt Doughty from Onell Design and Jesse Moore from Rawshark Studio. We have a nice mix of familiar faces and first-timers. Unfortunately none of the Japanese artists were able to come over this year – but will still be there in spirit and toys. Schedule coming soon!

in brand new episodes as personally related at the third meeting of the Global Figure Symposium.

CROSSOVER redux

The Rift in the space-time continuum has closed but our universe will never be the same.
The Global Figure Symposium 2010 – the CROSSOVER – was a smashing success – old friends, new alliances, familiar figures and radical re-imaginings were all in evidence.

A super big thanks to Matt Doughty from Onell Design and Jesse Moore from Rawshark Studios for giving up half (way more than half) of their booth for the event as well as being deep in the mix.

Big UP to all the creators who participated:
Real x Head, Uamou, Skulltoys, PaulKaiju, Dead Presidents, MonstreHero, L’amour Supreme, Sucklord (and Vektar), The Tarantulas, Jesse DeStassio, Spy Monkey Creations, Brand Loyalty Toys, and everyone else who made the event what it was!

The Crossover at the Global Figure Symposium SDCC

“I think one of the most interesting events this year was the tiny booth that seemed to hold a small army of artist and toy makers”. – Toybot Studios 

SDCC10: The Global Figure Symposium Booth

“This one ranked at the top of the list for booths that I needed to check back in with. There was always something new and interesting…crossovers…small runs…handmade pieces. The Global Figure Symposium killed it again this year. ” – Plastic & Plush

TOYSREVIL: Global Figure Symposium / GFS 2010 – The CROSSOVER @ San Diego Comic Con (Booth 4937)

“I personally look at this with awe and interest, especially this concept of a show-within-a-show with a specific focus, to me is pretty well brilliant, IMHO. “ – ToysREvil

Toy Break – Episode 129 

 “Bringing in all those artists, and having that crazy schedule of people come into the booth everyday with these crossovers. Thank you to datadub, thanks to Onell.” – Ayleen, Toy Break
