Busy week

Hi blog.  I usually don't write, but these past few weeks have been crazy.  I wrapped up my 7 months at Mattel on friday.  I can't believe how many late nights spread over a whole team of designers, planners, engineers, licensors etc goes into into these little pieces of metal.  Here's a pic of the line I worked on at the San Diego Comic Con a few months ago.  They should be coming out soon.  Can you guess who they are?

My buddy Paul did the two big guys on the bottom left, and the lovely Fraser Campbell did the key sketch for Superman which I took through to production.

Looks like a ton of fun, when and where can I get my hands on one of these diecast demons? Were all the others besides Paul's and Superman your design? -Ian

Hey Ian it's been a while..How is Chicago?

These things should be out early 2012 at ToysRus probably, I'll let you know if I spot them. The rest are my babies!
