9 months?!? Time for an Update!!

Wow, I really haven't updated here in a while. It's scary to think that someone could have had a baby in the time it's taken me to post an update. That's NINE MONTHS without so much as a peep out of this blog. Let me try to explain why:

Between now and NYCC 2012 when we had our first Ston'emm release, we've been VERY busy. Our 3 year old cat Whedon died very unexpectedly about 4 days before Halloween & the day before Hurricane Sandy hit us here on Long Island. So, it was just a huge disruption in everything we had planned for the Ston'emm and future releases.

Things were calmer, but still sad around our house due to our loss but we marched onwards as best we could. February we attended Toy Fair 2013 and that blizzard hit us causing further set backs. Plus, immediately after Toy Fair, we had to move out of our apartment of 3 years and scramble to find a new one. Luckily, we did and now we're all moved in with our good friend & collaborative artist Dex Antares in a really nice apartment. 

After that insanity was dealt with things finally started to settle down & we began work on our toy line again. We've actually launched our own website over at and will be moving everything from this blog over to our new site. It's taking a little while as it's about 4 years worth of postings AND Google deleted all my images so now I have to rebuilt it from the ground up. 

*le sigh*.

So this should (in theory) be one of the last times I post on this blog. We've had a good run here, but we're evolving to the next step of our stories & custom figures and the new site just has so much more to offer. It's still under construction, but once it's up & running you'll be able to read bios for ALL the Ston'emm customs that were released during NYCC 2012; that's roughly 30+ character bios. We're also having a new Ston'emm release at the 3rd Annual Long Island Toy Show which should include 2 new Ston'emm colorways as well as some other surprises. 

Once we get closer to the show, be sure to keep checking for updates and new photos.

Until then, take care everybody and see you on the new website!! :-D
