Read on for all the info on Tim Bruckner’s latest endevour, plus some pics of the new collectibles being offered!
Tim Bruckner, a veteran sculptor who has done extensive work for DC
Direct, Toy Biz, Dark Horse and many others in his 43 years in the
field, has just launched a new Website and store at TimBrucknerShop.com. The site will function as a portal for model kit enthusiasts to purchase his original resin kits, as well as a place for statue collectors to acquire some of his unproduced sculptures, hand-painted and finished by the artist himself. The site also has a blog where he will share behind-the-scenes commentary on his numerous creations.
The site launches with three new model kits from Bruckner — a bust of Quasimodo based on the novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” and two different-sized kits of Tim’s horrific clown character, the Giggler. New, full-color paint-ups offered in the shop include two new decos of Major Marjorie, Tim’s pin-up spacegirl inspired by the art of George Petty, and two decos of Prometheus, the Titan who brought fire to mankind. (Both paint-ups are also available as unpainted resin kits.)
Also in the shop are Tim’s line of 6″ Iconocasts kits and paint-ups — Ode to Joy, Cyrano and The Monster — as well as his first Modular Expression creation, the infinitely interchangeable Beelzebub’s Bookkeeper. Aspiring sculptors can also pick up Tim’s expansive how-to book, “Pop Sculpture.”
