Boards Don’t Hit Back – Custom Paw by Pause


Pause just finished up this awesome custom Coarse Paw for a collector; titled “Boards Don’t Hit Back”.

The collector commissioned me to make him a Bruce Lee themed piece and this is what I came up with. It’s loosely based on the final battle scene in Enter The Dragon. (If you haven’t seen the movie, Mr. Lee has to fight the final boss who has a Vega-style claw hand in a room full of mirrors. Which one is the real one and which is just a reflection?!) So I made a background out of cut mirror and wood.

Another custom that serves to prove how talented an artist Pause is.  Such a cool concept, flawlessly executed; with a ridiculous level of attention to detail that rivals and even surpasses many production pieces.

Atropa Dunny CV.1 by Jason Limon

Just caught a glimpse of this awesome custom Dunny from Jason Limon on facebook.

Really loving the idea and work that have gone into this piece, you can see some serious sculpting has taken place! The green & orange contrast so well with the dark colour scheme on the rest of the piece making sure the face is the first thing that grabs your attention!

You’ll get a chance to grab this one pretty soon as it’ll be for sale on June 1st at 1pm CST at Jasons shop for $500.

Keep an eye open for more from Jason too.

Review: TADO x MATHMOS Chuppi

It’s review time and we’re reviewing the new TADO x MATHMOS Chuppi customisable toy/night-light.


  • 1 x Chuppi
  • 2 x Sticker Sheets
  • 1 x Charging Base
  • 1 x Charger [and the required adapter depending on country]

Right out of the box Chuppi is a sizeable little fella at approx 8″ tall.  Upon taking Chuppi from it’s box I was quite surprised at how light it was; yet it’s sturdy enough as to not fall over from the slightest bump.

Chuppi comes with 2 sticker sheets with 18 stickers for you to play with.  The box and instructions show 18 faces you can create as designed by TADO, or you can mix and match to create thousands of possible faces.

I wasted no time in attempting to recreate the face of Wario on my Chuppi (as can be seen below).

I plonked my newly dubbed Wario-Chuppi onto it’s charging station fora while whilst I waited for night time.  On the underside of Chuppi is a single button which is used to activate the various light modes; a single press sets it to cycle through a rainbow of colours, pressing it a second time sets it to solid blue, a third time sets it to red and a fourth and final time sets it to green.

Each colour was vibrant and also provided an ambient glow.  By default, after 30 minutes Chuppi will graduaully fade until it goes off, this setting can be changed by holding the button down (for 3 seconds) until the underside red LED goes off.

PLUS: Vibrancy/Range of Colours, Endless possibilities with stickers/customization, Portable, Sleep Timer, Charging Station, Rechagrable

MINUS: Would’ve been nice to be able to pause mid colourcycle / greater choice of light colour.

I highly reccomend picking up a Chuppi from MATHMOS, they’re awesome little toys with some added functionality that will especially be appreciated if you have kids that are afraid of the dark.  The ease of use, portablity and the fun that can be had customising your Chuppi makes them a more than worthwhile purchase.


Big thanks to Emma / Miss Cakehead of Stay Puft for providing us with a Chuppi to review :]
