Ebay Auctions, Dr Who Action Figures, Miniatures and more…

5 Feb

I just wanted to draw your attention to a few lots I’ve got on Ebay right now, especially if you are a fan of Dr Who, albeit the action figure side of fandom. I’ve come into possession of several collectible action figures, from both the classic Dapol range, and the newer ones.

Now, I’m not a collector of Dr Who merch, but know that there are loads of people out there that are, so I got hold of these figures to sell on. You can check them out here on ebay right now: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Collectables/1/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&_ssn=kegru59&_sac=1

I had a fair deal of clean up on these figures, as it seems like the previous owner had them glued down to something for display, with some sort of strong contact adhesive, which I’ve cleaned up a lot of.

Also, in with the figures, I got hold of a vintage 80’s Fine Arts Castings, 80mm scale Classic Dr Who figurine of “The Brigadier” (That might be of interest to the mini collectors who read the site)

This seems to be a bit of a rarity, and looks like there are very few actual images on the net. Sure, it’s had a hard life, but once the mini is stripped back to bare metal and given a new paintjob, it’ll end up looking fine! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1980s-Doctor-Who-Fine-Art-Castings-BRIGADIER-80mm-PART-PAINTED-metal-figure-RARE/383405228169?hash=item5944bb8089:g:HCMAAOSwjLZeOKxy

For those out there who don’t do “Who”, I’ve also got something for you little Jedi Padawans, with these great bath sets for kids.

These are BNIB (Brand New In Box, for those of you wondering) and you can find them here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Disney-Star-Wars-Kids-Bath-Battle-Set-BNIB/383407915590?hash=item5944e48246:g:2AQAAOSwWcVeOvYB

Finally, I’ve still got one lot left of the Scale groundcover mix of autumn leaves and debris for miniatures and models.

Although I have just one lot left, I could be tempted to make up a couple more if need be. Check out the last lot here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fall-Leaves-Scatter-Flock-10g-for-wargames-Models-28mm-32mm-Warhammer-K-O-W-etc/382994477612?hash=item592c3ff22c:g:CcsAAOSwqbZc-vCd

Feel free to check out these lots, I just thought I’d run them by you all, since lots of you share these interests, and you might want to peruse these ebay listings and grab yourself a bargain!

Grinning Skull Payhip Digital Download Store, Open Now!!

12 Jan

grin skull goatshead logo title med

I want to announce our new Grinning Skull Studios/Goats Head Payhip store!

I’ve set this up so that those of you who who don’t have or want a DriveThruRPG account to get our publications without going to the hassle of getting one.

This means that you can just add whatever titles you want, then check out with Paypal or credit/debit card. It makes it a little easier for you, consider it a new year gift from us!

But seriously, you’ll be able to get exclusive titles there too, stuff that falls a bit short of our ranges that we sell on DriveThruRPG. That means our imput will become more diverse, but these exclusive titles will no doubt interest you in the hobby, with titles and digital products ranging from Classic genre movies, non-fiction, fiction, and all sorts of Fantasy, Sci-fi and Horror based genre titles.

I’ll be uploading as much of our back catalogue on here, but not all of it, keeping enough reasons for people to want to access both store fronts, at the Payhip store and the DriveThruRPG (and possibly others…).

I’ll be updating the links on here and no doubt the site will have a few changes as well. And I’ll apologise if you see a duplicated post or two as I busily plug away at both the blog and the Payhip store. Also, we’ll still be busy with new RPG and Hobby titles on the DriveThruRPG side of things, as I’ll be putting exclusives there as well, and of course our continuing support of all the ranges there.

logo-large

You’ll find our store located at: https://payhip.com/grinningskullstudios which is an easy location to remember, so I hope you’ll show your support and help me test the metrics! Don’t forget to check out the DriveThruRPG store too, if you haven’t already: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/8807/Grinning-Skull-Studios

I’ll be blogging about all new releases which get added, so I’ll try my best to keep you all updated (that is, those who are interested) and as ever I’m happy to hear of your comments, ideas and other suggestions. Thanks everyone!!

Grinning Skull & 2020

11 Jan

 

gs2020 ban

Well, new year is here, hopefully a new start to bigger and better things. It’s been a while since I have made a proper blog post so 2020 has given me an excuse to do so.

I hope you are all doing well, and have a good foundation for the new year ahead, so with that in mind I want to share with you a few things that I’m hoping to
achieve in the year going ahead. Not that I will actually get everything done what I have in mind, just what I’d like to do!

You know what it’s like, but I have a bit of fire in my belly and some new ambition in my heart to get new ideas out there, new products, new plans and directions. Like I said, hopefully some of them will come good, maybe some will end up as just brain farts.
I have been working behind the scenes to get some stuff in place that will expand my brand and introduce new ones too (New seems to be the keyword here!) I’ll let you
all know as soon as these are ready, but as a publisher there will be continuations to existing ranges, as well as introductions with additional digital imprints that will expand us and appeal to more people, not just as a hobby producer, but bring new customers to the fold. I realise that some of the content won’t appeal to everyone, but so we can grow beyond what we are currently.

Our DriveThruRPG sales are doing fine, which is good, and we will continue as we have done, bringing a whole heap of new titles each month, this will not change, but
to further our reach, we will have new options for purchasing our products with an additional storefront for those of you who don’t use DriveThruRPG, but still want our
stuff (You know, non RPGers and hobbyists, the normal folks!). In addition, we will be releasing exclusive titles on the new storefront that wouldn’t normally be allowed or fit on our OBS publishing pages.

paypalpayhipdrivethru

These titles will still be in a genre vein and be integrated with the brand whenever possible. This will include Fiction and Non-Fiction titles, archive media and so on. This won’t detract from our usual works, just add to our back catalogue. Such as the very popular Historical Reference titles seem to appeal to many other types of customers, there are many interested parties that simply don’t take part in the hobby stuff, the additional storefront will make it easier for new customers to get their Grinning Skull fix without the hassle of making a DriveThru membership and get their purchases more direct from us.

Most notably is the introduction of the Goats Head Publishing Imprint, which as mentioned will focus on other subjects and ideas, mainly all that don’t fit with the
hobby aesthetic. We’ll be trying other publishing platforms and formats, which I’ll admit will be a steep learning curve for me, but we will see how it goes, so keep your eyes open for that (I’ll be more proactive on here, so I’ll keep you updated) The KDP platform is a mystery to me which I want to explore, so I have a few titles in my head that would be a great fit there once I get it figured out.

Patreon has been a bust for me, so I’ll be probably be taking it down, so I can concentrate better on what is important. I think my mistake was I still don’t fully get it so maybe it’l be back at a later date, it’s been something that I haven’t put my whole efforts into. I don’t mind really, everything is a learning process and next time I’ll have a bit more insight before starting it up again. As a busy father, I’m always fighting a good workflow, so when I get in a better swing, I’ll be better suited to making it work in unison with the rest of what I’m doing.

Networking has been getting better over these last few months, and I’m hoping to expand further on social media and such, so if you want to become part of that, please feel free to get in touch via Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and joining my growing network. Doing the numbers on the metrics has been an eye opener, so I’ve focused on that (and it’s working great!) so being in the loop with so many great creators and people is full of fantastic opportunities, so like I said, hit me up!
Another thing I’ll be doing is having a massive push on physical product, which I have quite a few ideas for, so I hope you lot are going to like some of it! More news on that
at a later date, but rest assure I’ll be putting some effort into that for sure!

What exactly the final products are, there’s a shortlist (well, a list) and all final ideas that make the cut, I will let you know so you can get yourself some!
I’ve got more to post about over these next few days, so I’ll tell you more as soon as I get around to that (eloquate my words, that is) but, here’s to a great 2020 for each and
every one of you!
