Toy Designer James Groman’s newest B.C. Blasters
Will Hit in 2022 as a Monster Forge x Toy Art Gallery collaboration!
The Jurassic war machines, the B.C. Blasters, return! Hours before the DesignerCon 2021 show floor opens, superstar designer toy artist James Groman revealed via Instagram the all new B.C. Blasters for his upcoming designer toy collaboration with Monster Forge Productions and Toy Art Gallery.
Groman is best known for his outlandish designs as seen in many of his works including the highly popular Madballs toy series. Groman now brings his signature art style to the Monster Forge universe and offers his monstrous spin on his long running B.C. Blasters toy line with Toy Art Gallery! The figures are designed and sculpted by the artist and samples will be on display at this weekend’s DesignerCon convention in Anaheim, CA, at the Toy Art Gallery booth (#?).
“When Monster Forge asked me to design and sculpt new characters for the B.C. Blasters, I was amped,” said Groman. “Growing up, I was usually drawn to characters like Swamp Thing, Monster of Frankenstein, Man-Thing and Werewolf by Night and Earth’s first monsters, the dinosaur. Working with Steve Niles and Shannon Eric Denton of Monster Forge on these figures has been so creatively invigorating! It helps that the folks at Toy Art Gallery have been a joy to work with on these for years and this new energy brought to the line has been tremendous. It was interesting to see just how far we could take the new designs and push the paint for the originals to give it that classic animated series vibe. I can only hope this collection leads to even more collaborations with Monster Forge and Toy Art Gallery. I know I have several more collaborations with Monster Forge we’ll be announcing soon!”
