"Molezilla is a new 7″ high art toy figure that I want to produce in soft vinyl as a limited edition for collectors. I have written the backstory, designed the figure, created the sculpt and made a few hand cast resin prototypes. Now I hope to raise the funds to produce the vinyl edition at a facility here in the US.
What’s the big deal about being one of the first vinyl editions to be produced entirely in the US start to finish ? Well, since the 1960’s vinyl figures have been almost exclusively produced in Japan or China. This project will be supporting the savvy new US company Veracious Vinyl and keeping the work at home. It matters !
Like painting and its big brother sculpture, I believe art toys can make valid statements about our society as well as being a collectable. Molezilla makes his point in the backstory / fable that the figure is based on."
