"Station to Station" by David Stegmann @ Pretty Portal (Oct 31-Nov 28)

EVENT PRESS: "From 31st of October to 28th of November 2014 Pretty Portal shows works of Swiss-German artist David Stegmann AKA "dust". In the exhibition "STATION TO STATION" David Stegmann presents new works on glass and pieces on canvas and paper. Opening reception is on 31st of October 2014 at 7pm."

EVENT PRESS CONTINUED: "In his work David Stegmann deals with questions of coexistence of humans and the environment. His works, which combine abstract painting and neosurrealism, are partially apocalyptic and visionary. They provide an insight into a fragile, organic microcosm. In the eye of the beholder concrete and fantastic flows together, to dissolve again in the next moment. Nature, with her absolute passion for perfection, color and shape is the source of David Stegmann's inspiration.

David Stegmann has consistently developed his work. After shows in 2008 and 2009, we are happy to show his latest pieces at Pretty Portal."

This collectible set will exclusively include an additional heavy blaster and a mouse droid as bonus accessories."


With Figure Painted by Lok Ho and Figure Art Directed by JC. Hong, scheduled release is 2nd to 3rd quarter of 2015. Interesting that they've decided to offer a two-pack, and folks intending on building armies/teams will have a two different contingents with two different heights (30cm and 28cm tall)! Not to mention if folks decide to mix in with their Sideshow Toy counterparts, this would make or an eclectic mix of soldiers! Glitch in the cloning process, perhaps? LOL

But fear not, non-completists, for apparently the Stormtrooper Collectible Figure is also available for pre-order separately (Do check in with your "plastic crack dealer" for pricing and availability!) … Wouldn't be fun if the 2-pack included interchangeable headsculpts of Luke and Han, innate? Well, one fanboy can wish…!
