Let’s talk about Gargamel.

Gargamel, Hands down these guys make some of my favorite sculptures/toys/handheld art, Smashface Hedoran, Mibora, Smogon, Thrashman, Zags, Deathra, the amount of beautifully shaped, ugly, loveable monsters is nearly endless. Gargamel releases has slowed a bit in recent years. Now, something really good smelling is in the wind. They found a new studio about six months ago that seems to be sticking, after several big moves, and now we are seeing a slow but more steady stream of releases from them again post SDCC. First the two Gundams (really want that Scopedog), three new Micro, a Tetran, A Cyclo looking dude, and my favorite micro in a long while, Smogon. There is a new Misty Fog Sculpt that was unveiled at Designer Con, and now a Walking killer with Guts. Gargamel and I talked about this for years. And at one point they even sculpted Guts for Sleeping Killer, but maybe were unhappy with it, and never quite finished detailing the sculpt. I held it in my hands. Shoulda ran away with it, cept I would have been caught at the door when I stop to put my shoes back on. Now years later I hold the testshot to a completely new Killer sculpt. Walking killer, with no guts yet. Those elusive guts. They really did a beautiful job with Lil killer.
I have been so excited that I even picked up a new display case just for Gargamel. which still doesn’t hold everything… and then I start thinking, Gargamel does most of the sculpts for Super 7… what of those should I include? At least the Chanmen ooze it… but then should I include others as well. The mind stirs.
And now, it’s nearly time for a new Zodiac figure, and Gargamel Lucky Bags! What mystery lies ahead? Good fun in 2015.
