I love the clunky old-fashioned look of the industrial era. It is kind of steampunk, but not really, which is why I changed the name of the line. It is influenced by Jules Verne, HG Welles, Terry Gilliam, Guillermo Del Toro, etc. But I feel it has my own unique sensibilities as well.
I started on the sketches for these figures in 2006, completed the figures in 2007, but held off releasing them until they were unveiled at Customcon XIX.
The line was one of the first that really took off and catapulted me to a new level of exposure. The line has also become heavily influential. It was the first combination of Star Wars elements with Steampunk aesthetics. Now it is a staple of the convention and cosplay circuit. I even had the privilege of being a guest of honor at an entire convention in Ohio themed around Steampunk Star Wars.
