January 2013 Color of the Month

Please Note: Due to the process used to make the Helper Dragon, colors may vary from the figure shown but will be similar...specifically, we'll be letting the green get progressively lighter as the month proceeds shooting for a very light green at the end.

I could make up a story here about how this pretty shade of pale green was inspired by antique glass or something, but the reality is that last month we did a nice rich "Army Man" Green and this month we wanted to lighten it up and do something pastel. So there you go, Pale Green it is!

Designed and sculpted by Tim Biskup, the Helper Dragon is the very first Roto-a-Matic figure. Made in a vintage Mold-a-Rama machine that we've rehabbed and renamed the Roto-a-Matic, the Helper Dragon is 4.5 inches of blow-molded polyethylene art! Each figure comes with it's own Certificate of Authenticity indicating the name of the figure, name of the artist, date of manufacture and color.

About the Roto-a-Matic

The Roto-a-Matic™ began it’s life as a vintage Mold-a-Rama* machine, invented in the mid-1950’s by Tike Miller, formerly of Quincy, Illinois. If you are lucky enough to have lived in the few midwest states (as well as some parts of California and Florida) where Mold-a-Rama machines have been operating for the past 40-plus years you have probably seen one at a zoo or a museum making souvenir animals, dinosaurs and the like.

Our machine once lived in the Los Angeles Zoo where it last made kangaroos, but was retired after decades of service. We have lovingly rehabbed this machine, re-christening it The Roto-a-Matic™. Then we asked some of our artist and toy designer friends to make new sculpts for the machine so it now makes art "toys" instead of zoo souvenirs, but the spirit is still the same…visit us in Chicago, put in your token and see your toy made right before your eyes! There’s nothing better than the feel of the warm plastic as you reach into the bin to pull out your newly made treasure. We sincerely hope you enjoy this figure as much as we have enjoyed making it possible.
