The new product, CURIO, is now selling by the lottery draw! We are here to let you know every details about the production of CURIO from scratch.
It was on the October 28th 2014; our cooperator the retailer “One up” had exclusively published the inc19th limited color "Scheme black". (The yellow nose edition is only sales on the One up store.)
The CEO AKASI from MEDICOM TOY also bought this figure. On the November 1st 2014, we received a letter from CEO AKASI, at that time is the born of CURIO.
The letter from CEO AKASI wrote: How about making a catty edition for inc?
The reason why he said that is because he like the "Scheme black" very much, and he think that the black body and yellow eyes design is also very suitable for cat model. The words from CEO AKASI inspired me; I have never made a figure that using cat as model, so I decided to try it this time.
I am here in toy Industry all because the 『BE@RBRICK』, CEO AKSSI was the one who made it, he is a special person for me and I always respect him. I made my YES answer very short time.
I wish to create a model then I’m quickly using pencil to sketch in my drawing book for its basic look. The production fee of toy is humongous and CEO AKASI suggested to use the inc body model for this project because the costs of manufacture was high.
I redesign a grand new body instead of using the inc body. I made two different models to let CEO AKASI choose. There are a lots of changes to make the hand look like kitten paw, let the leg moveable and has muddy, LIQUID corrosive design on body which is hugely different with inc.
CEO AKASI prefer for the grand new design which as same as my prediction then we started this project. I reconstruct all the graphic design but I met the first question is “who is going to handle up the original creation?” at that moment and I’m desperate to start for this project. After discuss with CEO AKASI, he mention some original creation master for me. However the master I choose are too famous make it can’t immediately coordinate with me on this project.
I had lots of original creation at that time and that’s why I hired exclusive 3D modelers for INSTINCTOY. Besides, I had announced about the wanted for 3D modeler in 3 languages (Chinese, English, Japanese) on Facebook and I got a lots of applicants not only from my own country (Japan) and also from overseas. I found my 3D modeler who I wanted after reviewed all the resume.
His name is Ringo (incognito) , a Hong Kong youth who is now an indispensable partner for INSTINCTOY. His personality is almost same with me make our cooperation go through very smoothly. He can done for the 3D graphics with only 3 pages of my hand sketches; Importantly, CURIO is his first project when he is hired and he had done 6 original creations and others company creations in a year.
I can meet up with Ringo is really lucky for me.
Therefore, the CURIO can be created and the final model is much better compare with the initial sketches.
CURIO features design for moveable thigh which can sit down. Although the body is stabbing and muddy which has same flavor with inc but it has grand new product display.
On the 3D tasting, we have tried many angle for moveable joint, we made a good shape in the final design and make it stable sit.
3D graphics achieved a lots of my impossible production idea. I'm challenging to design eroded LIQUID.
Eroded LIQUID and itself can be separate and coexist. In currently products, the design for LIQUID is mainly focus on waist and back. Therefore, I wish to individualize LIQUID that should be interesting.
Finally, we used these idea to make a figure.
The product so far just using some water drops on leg, both left and right hands had been eroded by LIQUID. This time we get more drops and made liquid form shoes which can fully covered its leg.
The hand and leg have two pairs of components which can be easily to remove.
Like 3D graphics, にLIQUID gloves and the left part component both can be removed.
Gloves can be easily put into shoes to assembly as an independent LIQUID.
It must be sure that the right and the left hand are same structure and using same procedure can make for another LIQUID.
This structure is using liquid form shape of CURIO leg grafting to LIQUID gloves. We make the others part of gloves design as water drops which are fit with the shoes interior space, so make it fit with each other.
Shape of liquid form glove must 360° fit with leg. The shape is complicated so it is hard to reach consistentcy line if handmade. This just can be done by 3D graphics calculate for its ingenious performance.
This part has been design thoroughly. Only if the glove makes it as unfill, it might scratch the hand or too tight to do in the hands.
The interior has claw outfit which is not only unfill while the shape of interior and hand are completely fit for the glove on hand!!
We can clearly see that the interior part of
