Artist Proof Studios Introduces the Chelonian Warrior Sculpted by Erick Sosa!

April 1st, 2009

Up until today, I think pretty much EVERY item I have ever announced, reviewed or mentioned on this site has come from a movie or comic book, or some other well known medium that most of you (if not all) already knew about. But when it comes to kits, the real magic happens when an artist and producer comes together to bring something totally original and absolutely mind-blowing… and tonight I want to present exactly that. I am VERY excited to present to you guys a brand new original series sculpted by my friend Erick Sosa and produced by Artist Proof Studios!

Chelonian Warrior

The Chelonion Warrior is the first kit in a series of 6 AMAZING pieces called Creature World featuring a host of mutant aquatic warriors. Erick and the rest of the development team have put together a brilliant package with this series because aside from the kit itself, you get a TON of cool secret goodies in each box! Here is how it works with this kit:

The Chelonion Warrior kit comes with the warrior itself, his weaponry and the base, plus you get:

1. A secret extra part allowing you to assemble the kit in an alternate pose than the one advertised.

2. A BONUS part for the 6th kit in the series! Each of the first 5 kits in the series will come with a unique bonus part and once you have all 5, you have everything you need to build the 6th figure! How cool is THAT?!

3. An all original comic series of drawn story boards by Paul Komoda! Each kit will include an update to the story.

For now I’ve been asked not to reveal what all these extra goodies look like, but I GUARANTEE you they are totally badass! Aaaaand I am will be receiving my very own Chelonian Warrior in the next couple of weeks for a featured video review and I will unveil all the extra bonus parts and artwork! So stay tuned for that towards the end of the month.

Did I mention how HUGE this kit is?! Check this out…

Chelonian Warrior

The Chelonian Warrior is cast in high quality resin and ships directly from the USA weighing in at just over 6 lbs. These are actually in stock and ready for immediate orders, so please allow about 1 week for shipping and it will come direct from Artist Proof Studios in the USA. The kit measures 14″ in height, 11″ wide and 7″ deep when fully assembled and is absolutely LOADED in detail! I’ve been seeing regular updates from Erick as he was sculpting and the level of detail in the sculpt is completely mind-blowing and you have to see this up-close to believe it. The sword itself is a masterpiece, with all these crazy textured and even and Asian style female face totem embedded in it, it’s insane!

Chelonian Warrior

I invite you to click HERE to visit the shop page and take a look at all the photos and if you are in to high quality kits, I HIGHLY recommend you pick this up, it’s a painter’s dream come true and you can bet this will be a grail kit AND series in the future. In fact I’ve already seen the in-progress shots of the next kit in the series and it’s already proving to be just as killer, if not more so than this badass mutant turtle warrior.

Please be sure to post your thoughts and comments by clicking the comment below below, I’m sure Erick would love to see what you guys have to say.

I would also like to congratulate Erick on the success of this kit… I know it’s only JUST been released but I know the the reaction has already been tremendous and this is clearly a HUGE success right out the gate. Way to go man!

Enjoy everyone!
Dan

    Funny, I was just looking at this yesterday and thinking how cool it was. Think this will be an eventual pick up for me, it DOES look most excellent.

    …besides, not like there are any new Predator related kits coming out from Hayes or Narin…unless you know something we don’t….*hint hint, nudge nudge*.
