Introducing Slug Girl by Renee French x Meltdown (with Sculpt by Monster5)

SLUG-GIRL-01
T’was the sculpt-image of the (Masked) SLUG GIRL by Japan sculpt master Monster5 which first grabbed my attention, which in turn led me to track down artist (and Slug Girl-creator) Renee French, for a little Q&A about her upcoming quirkmazing* 4 inch tall toy figure, who happens to be scheduled for a release at a show in Meltdown, L.A. on November 27th! Masterminded by Meltdown Comics, the first edition of the Slug Girl is limited to 100 pcs.

SLUG-GIRL-02
TOYSREVIL: Who is the Slug Girl? Is she based on one of your drawings? Or an all original made-for-toy creation?

RENEE FRENCH: She’s based on a drawing that was part of a series of little girls and rabbits with various ailments and prosthetics for a gallery show in Tokyo and then the book Edison Steelhead’s Lost Portfolio published by Sparkplug Comic Books. She’s the shyest one in the series of drawings.

SLUG-GIRL-04
TOYSREVIL: What can you tell us about the coming release, featuring the sculptwork of Monster5? I believe it is in November?

RENEE FRENCH: The first edition will be of 100 figures, 4 inches tall, made of a secret material and released during a November 27th show at Meltdown, in LA. Monster5 did a crazy, ultra amazing job of sculpting her.

TOYSREVIL: More colorways to come, or just that one color edition release?

RENEE FRENCH: the colors will be revealed at the release.

TOYSREVIL: Looking forward to be seeing them! How did the toy come about?

RENEE FRENCH: Gaston from Meltdown in LA and I have been talking about making a toy for years. I have always wanted to turn one of my characters into a 3D thing, and Gaston passed on my drawings of Slug Girl to Monster5.

SLUG-GIRL-03
TOYSREVIL: That’s awesome! And congratulations on the impending release of the amazing Slug Girl, Renee! In closing, please do share with our readers, Who Is Renee French?

RENEE FRENCH: I make comics and picturebooks, for Picture Box Inc, Top shelf Comix and SparkPlug Comicbooks, and i’ve got a new book coming out called H DAY in October, and my book THE TICKING is back in print … oh, my daily image blog is http://reneefrench.blogspot.com.
