He's kicking ass and, well, actually he's just plain kicking ass! I present you one of the baddest (and by bad I mean f@#$!*% awesome) custom 10" Teddy Troopers I've seen in a good while, "Project X Hunter" by the uberly talented RunDMB. David is quite possibly one of the fastest growing artists in the custom designer toy scene, and I think you can see why. And if you're wondering what exactly this Teddy Trooper is hunting, well, feast your eyes on his first original figure which for the meanwhile has been given the name, "Project X". 

A collaboration between RunDMB, Jon Paul Kaiser, and Richard Page from UMETOYS, "Project X" has come to life in a very big way. Originally taken from one of David's characters he's doodled on many of his customs (you can see a nice example in the third pic down on the side of the Teddy Troopers helmet), Richard did an amazing job transforming him into a full on figure. Word has it that the head is going to be cleaned up a bit and there's going to be some articulation added to the arms. And if that's not enough, he's going to be casting a very limited amount of them in resin for all 3 of them to paint up. Excuse me while I pick up my jaw from the floor. . .We'll definitely be posting more info as we get it straight from the source so be sure to keep checking back. We may even have 1 or 2 painted up by RunDMB up for grabs through our store, hehe

Thanks again David for the awesome Teddy Trooper, he's definitely going to have a nice spot in my ever growing RunDMB collection ;)
