2013 New Years Hunt Starts NOW!

Due to the success of this year's annual Christmas Holiday Hunt (sold out) gift wrapped blind boxes and a lot of folks being mad at me because they couldn't get one - the 2013 New Years Hunt will start right NOW!
The plan was to start it a little sooner but my air compressor broke down pretty bad and I had to raise some emergency funds with a few quick sales to get a brand new one (THANK YOU ALL!!!) Having such a dang cool collector base who came through big time I was able to get back up to speed. The new gift wrapped blind boxed series will be a edition of 25 resin Tuttz Mini's similar to what was released in the earlier Holiday Hunt and I will do my best to make them all special. The wave will drop at random hours and will consist of all clear tints and some will also be glow in the dark (GID) chases and the price will stay the same - $40 each shipped in the US (all overseas orders will be emailed directly for proper shipping costs and methods for shipping).
Below is a teaser sample of what to expect and what the New Years Hunt blind boxed gift wrapping will look like. Since I am behind schedule I will try my best to drop a few random blind boxes every day and the release will go past New Years - so GOOD LUCK and Happy Hunting!!!

The Terminators Are Back! (Sold Out)

Series 2 of the Terminator Tuttz Mini customs collabo with artist Leroy Wilkes of Kilroy's Attic drops this Tuesday Dec. 24th (Christmas Eve) at 9PM Est. time in the Argonaut Resins online STORE. The edition size of this series is 6 clear tint outer shell Tuttz cat figurine castings over - 1 pearlescent ghost styled glow in the dark, another 4 with metal cold cast skeletons and 1 x-ray styled beige bone colored casting. The interior skeleton design was carved from an actual blank resin Tuttz Mini I gave to Leroy specifically for this custom project, so you get 2 sculptures in 1. Each Terminator Tuttz Mini custom comes with signed and numbered custom packaging and certificates of authenticity and all six designs are different metals and styles. The first limited Series of Tuttz Terminators (edition of 4 - released at the NYC Comic Con this past October) have sold out.  
Are you scheduled for Termination?

 Pearlescent Ghost GID.

Hopefully there will be a few more releases before the year closes out for anyone who may have missed out some of our Holiday goodies. Below are a few images of the Holiday Hunt Tuttz Mini blind boxes that will be shipping out all this week, so watch the mail and be good and put that wrapped gift under the Christmas tree...okay, at least try.

As you know I can't close out the year without some super uber surprise - so stay tuned.

Holiday Hunt begins - NOW!!! ***UPDATED!***(Edition of 25 - Sold Out)

What better way to celebrate the Holidays than with Argonaut Resins annual blind box Tuttz Mini 3.5 inch cat figurine resin Holiday Hunt! This year will have all new all different exciting styles with mainly clear tints and glow in the dark pieces mixed in. The Holiday Hunt continues the tradition of the random drop of  Holiday wrapped gifts in the online STORE (comes with a bow too!!) ready to be displayed under your Christmas Tree or ready to give away as a gift right out the mailer box to somebody special. As you know I get wildly creative with this project expecting super excitement from collectors when they open those blind boxes. The Hunt will go all the way to Christmas Dec. 25th, then the New Years Hunt will kick in right after that. Thank you all for the amazing emails asking me to continue the Holiday Hunt every year as you know this is one of my favorite projects. So, I will drop a few teasers in this thread over the next week or two as we go - so watch the online store and GOOD LUCK! 
Holiday Hunt 2013 begins - NOW!!!
