I lent my skills to a fabrication studio for the construction of a NYC fire department call box replica.  Made of fiberglass, it will house a Play Station 4 gaming console and be used to entertain kids in a children’s hospital when it is finished.

Professional Toy Work: Prototypes

 

A selection of the toys I have worked on that have gone into production from licensed media

020Skorge, from Gears of War II. I was responsible for the painted prototype, the paint master for production and even worked a little but on the sculpting of the original figure.  I also oversaw the tooling of the original resin fine-cut master overseas in China for production.  The figure pictured above is the figure I painted.

Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell.  I was responsible for the paint application of the prototype figure.

014

Army of Two resin fine cut prototype.  This is a resin master copy produced in chine for pre-production.  Figures like this are used as scale guide for production figures that come later on in the manufacturing process.  These figures are also used as a guide for tooling out the stainless steal molds.

I worked extensively on this figure wile in China.  The figure was originally meant to have much more articulation, particularly in the legs, but due to the figures intricacies and extensive paint job it would be too costly, therefor the figure was put into a fixed pose from the waist down.

I was in charge of negotiating all this and was also responsible for the fixed posse the figure ended up being placed in.  I thought her should look like he was about to move, or about to take a shot, with one foot slightly in front of the other.
