Rsin customs: Nerviswr3k collab, Skullhead, Rebel Ink, Whisper Bee & Little Lotus project contribution

I love getting emails from my friend Rsin. They're usually dealing with some business or project we have planned, or NYCC, or something. He's always super friendly and asks about my wife and all the usual pleasantries... and then there's "oh by the way, here are some things I've been working on, maybe you can blog some of them" and he'll attach like 6 pictures of some of the most amazing and sought-after custom toys ever made... 
Above we have his contribution to the Army of Snipers / Little Lotus Project, which was funded in part by contributions from artists like the above 10" custom Rsin MadL.

 Next we have a collab piece between Rsin and Nerviswr3k: I think Nervis did the sculpt here, and he sent it to Rsin to paint. Sick.
 Next is a custom Rebel Ink figure, which I happen to know is one of Rsin's favorite sculpts to customize.
 ... and a riff on Rsin's Whispers style, the Whisper Bee, done on an 8" Kidrobot Dunny.
... and finally, as if you weren't feeling faint with envy already, someone somewhere owns this fucking absurd custom 8" Huck Gee Skullhead Dunny. So insane, it's wrong...  well, it's only wrong because that person isn't me. 
Anyway, there ya have it. Drool away at the Rsin awesomeness. 
I happen to know that 2012 is going to be an EVEN BIGGER year for Rsin. Plus he'll be at our NYCC booth again in October. With more space. And doing live art. So maybe, if you are real nice, and real lucky, you'll watch Rsin paint up a figure like one of these in person, in front of your own eyes. Bring your video camera and a wad of cash because there's going to be a lot of cool stuff to buy.

Go follow Rsin on Facebook. He also has a blog and a Flickr page.
