Geoff Soderberg's Crustacean customs... and Mickey!

I'm like Keithing- I love toys based on sea life. There are so many wonderful sea creatures like jellyfish, crabs, the kiwa hirsute, and all those weird-ass animals that live around the hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the sea floor... they all make for super-interesting collectibles when artists choose to use them. It doesn't happen often. So when Geoff Soderberg sent me some images of his customs, I was stoked to find several of his pieces look like custom crustaceans. Not sure if they're actual painted crab shells, or they're just great sculpts, but I love 'em either way.

Geoff also does non- crustacean pieces, like the Mickey Mouse piece below:
