Jack Flanagan, manager of GWAR has issued an official statement:

“It is with a saddened heart, that I confirm my dear friend Dave Brockie, artist, musician, and lead singer of GWAR passed away at approximately 6:50 PM EST Sunday March 23,2014. His body was found Sunday by his band mate at his home in Richmond, VA. Richmond authorities have confirmed his death and next of kin has been notified. A full autopsy will be performed. He was 50 years old, born August 30, 1963.

My main focus right now is to look after my band mates and his family. More information regarding his death shall be released as the details are confirmed.”

I had the privilege to shoot Gwar last November at 9:30 Club in Washington DC. It was one of my favorite experiences.

While they’re still earning their chops being on the road, they put on a killer show, and had the (young female) crowd singing along to every song. They kicked off with Silver and closed with Afraid.

Diamond Select has also been one of my absolute favorite visits from way back in the beginning. I love the variety of props, collectibles, Mini-Mates, and other action figures all in one spot. This year was a bit tricky as there was all this cool stuff! that I couldn’t photograph or talk about. But let me take you on a tour of the cool stuff I did get to see and shoot. Like this dead-on Caesar Romero as Joker bust. Fantastic!

K’Nex is producing some great sets and nabbing some hot licenses. I stopped by to see them because my son got the big 500 piece bucket for Christmas and loves playing with it frequently. But while I was there, holy cow, check out these Titan Fall figures. The game comes out in March, but in the meantime, I’ve got to get my hands on those mechs. They look fantastic! Here check out the 3D version.
