EVENTS!

Hey People!

Lots of events coming up!  Crazy amounts!

This weekend I'll be in Osaka - next Monday at the SOFUBI BANPAKU organized by Yamomark and JUNGLE!  Come by if you are around!

Next up - I've sent a custom HAG DX to Australia for the Soft Vinyl Garden Event.  Should be an amazing show for those of you Down Under!



Then there's SUFES, The Mandarake Suriose (sp?) event, and DESIGN FESTA - which will be preceded by this cool event in Ropppongi (Tokyo) that combines tunes, libations and SOFUBI!  KAIJU vs MODULAR!  Wowza!



I've got a few new molds in the works now, and am hoping to slowly leak these new dudes out over the next couple of months!  Keep your eyes peeled for BWANA x RAMPAGE (GRAVY!), NEW DINOS and other goodies as well!

Yay!

RAMPAGE TOYS INSTAGRAM CONTEST!!!

OK - here we go!

Contest time!  Time to have a bit of fun with your RAMPAGE TOYS!  This contest will be judged by me and the public, and will award those who get creative.  None of the standard 're-post this silly picture a million times' garbage, and none of the 'you have to follow me' garbage.  Just have fun.

RAMPAGE TOYS' Instagram Contest Rules:

-To enter you must post a photo of your favorite RAMPAGE TOYS figure OR an ORIGINAL illustration (drawing, painting, etc.) of your favorite RAMPAGE TOYS character.

-You must tag me in the photo: JMRAMPAGE

-Please include the following hashtags and mentions along with your post (copy and paste the following text to avoid typos and whatnot): #rampagetoys  #rampagetoyscontest @jmrampage

-Please post your image to Instagram by 3/31/2016

-I will choose my 10 favorite images from all posted images, then I will repost the images to my own feed.

-3 winners will be chosen based on the number of likes that each photo receives.  So, I will not be the final judge of the 10 chosen images, but rather my followers will be!

-Prizes will be shipped to the three winners.  They will be good prizes, but I'm keeping them secret in order to avoid any sort of 'hype based participation.'  This is for fun people - have fun!

-You may share info about the contest, but if you simply repost my post - well - you lose!

Hope to see some fun pictures!  Thanks in advance to all who participate!

NEW T-shirts Coming Up!

Hello Hello!

Toys are great and all, but occasionally it's fun to take a break from sculpting and painting, and sit down with good old paper and ink for a bit of drawing.

A couple weeks ago I had the itch to finally create a new design for some RAMPAGE TOYS t-shirts!  I got out a big sheet of the old cotton fiber paper and a few different drawing implements and stayed up WAY to late drawing and inking a design that, ultimately, I'm pretty psyched about.  Here's the design:



I've gotten in touch with a local printer here in Tokyo - a friend of mine who's business has been in his family for a couple generations.  He's currently getting the screen prepped to get these shirts rolling.

I will open up pre-orders (projected April shipping) for these shirts this coming Thursday (3/10).  There will be 4 different color-variants available - hopefully something for everyone!



Pleas have a look in the shop this coming Thursday.  Shirts will be up for pre-order for about 2 weeks.

In other news - random time and date shop-drop coming up this week - a few this and thats (hint - drop will be on my birthday!).  Also - all orders that are currently waiting on shipment will be on their way in the next 3 days!  Thanks for all your patience!
