My buddy Tim Harrison, aka Extra-Truckestrial Customs, aka ETC Toys, makes some of the most far out (pun, possibly intended) resin creations in the known world, and Nerd City is extremely excited to announce that we're going to have one of his pieces exclusively available at our booth at C2E2 this year!

And, at $15 a pop, how can you go wrong?

Cyborg Space Barbarian Kromulus C2E2 2015 Exclusive from Galaxxor x Zoloworld

That time of the year is fast upon us again, when some of Nerd City's best pals and favorite artists get together and create super limited edition collectibles, in the form of art, comics and toys. That time to which I'm referring, of course, is C2E2. Nerd City will be back in The Block, bigger and better than ever, with a great lineup of special guests and awesome exclusives. Although the Nerd City site is always a great place to get all of the latest Nerd city-related news, I wanted to start up this little mini blog as a one-stop point of reference for all of the exclusives at our booth this year. And, I'm set to kick the announcements off with one of my own offerings-
As General Gorgax's elite goons, the Cyborg Space Barbarians are an essential part of the Galaxxorverse. I love the way that the original helmet I sculpted came out, and I really enjoy making more barbarian-style characters, but as the core Galaxxor brand continues to evolve, I really wanted to move away from them simply being new heads on old MOTU bodies. My buddy Mike, from Zoloworld, and I have been chatting about doing some sort of collaborative work for a while, now. So, it only made sense to look to his awesome Realm of the Underworld line of vintage-style action figures as a possible base upon which to re-launch the Cyborg Space Barbarian concept.Originally conceived as a two-off project for Mike and I to see how the Cyborg Space Barbarian helmet looked with the Zoloworld barbarian buck, Kromulus got a great deal of positive feedback from the pictures that I posted online. So, I decided to do an extremely limited number of these guys as one of my exclusives for C2E2 this year.
Cyborg Space Barbarian Kromulus is a 5.5" art figure that features a head sculpted by Ben Spencer, which was then cast in resin by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen and True Cast Studio. The figure features a custom painted Zoloworld body, which sports 5 points of articulation. Kromulus comes with an Omega Matrix Orbs necklace accessory. This figure is limited to an edition of 3 and they will be $75 each from The Nerd City booth in The Block at C2E2 (April 24-26 in Chicago, IL). 
I will have quite a few more exclusives to announce in the next month or so, so stay tuned to the Galaxxor blog for all of the latest and greatest!
