The Kabbalahist thought he could use his knowledge to make and control a clay man. He scooped all the clay he could find from the river bed and sculpted a giant man, he finished his spell by scribing אמת (Emeth) or Truth on the bottom of the foot. But God was furious he had tampered with such vile magic, men were not mean to create life, and he cursed the creature. The magician tried to reverse his spell erasing his engraving to מת (met) or dead. But it had no effect, what was done could not be undone Now he and his people would be punished for his acts.
This figure is 12" tall, so I imagine it will be 11" after being vinylized.

My ability has greatly changed in the past 5 years as well, I feel like a much stronger artist now. I thought the Cadaver Kid was due an unpgrade, Actually I shouldn't call it an upgrade, there is nothing I would change on the original 4" figure. I feel the level of detailing is pretty much perfect for that scale, so I'll call it an upscale.
I love kaiju and neo-kaiju, and sofubi as a material, but there is a problem with the association. People will use the terminology as a crutch, to excuse sloppy texturing, bad symmetry and form. I've always looked outside the kaiju and designer toy world to improve as an artist, learning from special fx makeup, masks, and creature design, among other areas. When I created the Cadaver Twins, I was one of the first sofubi artists to apply Special fx paint techniques to my toys, now I'm bringing the high detail sculpting techniques into a new Splurrt Masterworks line. This will be a line of standard figures, with unprecedented detailing. The line will feature characters new and old. Here is the first look at the Cadaver Kid Masterworks version, I'm hoping to debut the figure at NYCC, the hometown and birthplace of SPLURRT and the Cadaver Kid.

Mutant Vinyl Hardcore to create the worlds most evil toy. I wanted to pull a mettalic vinyl that showcased the Bone Usir as a true idol. It's hard for me to accurately descibe this vinyl, but it's bronzed colored vinyl with gold metallic flake infused, absolutely stunning vinyl.
The Bone Usir measures over 10" tall, and is articulated at the neck, arms, and legs and made in Japan. The painted version, is painted by me with metallic brown, pearl green, pink, and black sprays.
Figures come bagged with header card, and will include a few SECRETOY stickers.
You can enter for either an unpainted set that includes a Bone Usir DX and a regular Usir, or a Painted Bone Usir. I have also painted 4 matching usirs. These will be bonus prizes and will randomly be given to winners of the painted Bone Usirs. Please do not ask me for a Usir.
The Unpainted Bone Usir set will be $200 plus S&H This will be $15 in the US. International winners, your shipping will be calculated.
The painted Bone Usir will be $175 plus S&H, again $15 in the US. Shipping for International winners will be calculated.
Here's how to enter.
I will accept entries Saturday 02/27/15 from 0:00 to 24:00 ET, that means you can begin entering tonight at midnight.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
In the subject line, specify if you want the painted Bone Usir, Blank set, or have no preference.
Instagram or Skullbrain handle if you have one (Optional)
Paypal email address (the address on your paypal needs to match the address you enter with)
I will notify winners on Monday, you will have 24 hours to pay, or your win will be forfeited and I will draw another winner in your place.
Please, 1 entry per household. I don't like lottos, but you guys asked for it, so be fair to each other. Don't have your siblings, mom, and your 6 year old niece enter for you. Inevitably this always happens, someone wins, and then they say to me, I had my friend enter as well and they won so I don't need 2. If you have the audacity to tell me your friend won on your behalf, I will find them and I will forfeit their win and yours and ban you from future sales. This also happens, someone wins and then says, I didn't think I'd actually win and don't have the money, can you hold the figure while I attempt to sell another toy to pay for it. No, I will not. I will draw again and ban you from future sales.
So now you understand why I don't like lotto sales. Please don't make me regret this.
Thank you everyone for the support, please understand Rich has a huge fanbase, and there will likely be an overwhelming number of entries. If you don't win, please don't take it personally or curse me.
