  1. CHECK OUT MY LATEST VIDEO HERE! BARAKA FROM MORTAL KOMBAT 11! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNKtgFkjdKo

  2. This was awesome and brought back sooo many memories of me and my grandfather smh. Thank you for this one!!! Iโ€™m a sneaker customizer and now looking into doing sculpting. This was my inspiration and thank you.

  3. Does anybody know what the music was that started playing as he was painting Geoffrey? it kind of sounded like Thomas Newman, but I couldn't be sure.


  5. Hey man, just watching this video again. Iโ€™ve never seen that stainless steel rake youโ€™re using @ 4:50 before but it seems great for smoothing over large contoured areas. Is it custom made? Thanks for sharing these!

  6. Hey great work….what were those round giant eye toys called again?! Never thought about them in years! Thank you for the memories!

  7. You guys do know toys r us is still an existing thing in the phillipies right… yes toys r us is still open in here

  8. Has anyone ever came to your house and was like
    nice scuplters, let's see we got fox mccloud, link, cranky Kong, and…..the toys R us giraffe?

  9. Rip toys r us and Geoffrey the giraffe ๐Ÿ™ there was no need to take down toys r us but eh..

  10. I remember getting phone calls from Geoffrey the Giraffe for my birthday. That shit made me so happy as a kid. RIP Toys R Us.

  11. hey, could you make a sculpture of Eren, Mikasa or Armin of Shingeki no Kyojin? You are a great inspiration to me, and … I hope one day to have that level of talent ^-^

  12. After 8:2 what the frik just happened Iโ€™m so confused?!?!?and by the way u are an amazing artist ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽจ love u bye ๐Ÿ‘‹ โ™ฅ๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

  13. I know they said that Toy's R Us isn't shutting down, and I'm watching this in 2019, the beginning still made me kinda sad.

  14. Amazing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  15. Most people are nostalgic about TRU for the toys and stuff

    I went there every day for 2 years to get mario PEZ dispensers.

    (PS: I now go to B&M stores for my mario PEZ dispensers. I'll never stop.)

  16. It's honestly depressing that kids born in 2019 are never going to get the Toys R Us experience and will just have to go to Walmart or Target instead, it's just not the same

  17. I remember going to Toys R Us just for the sake of being there.
    I remember going there recently (I live in Canada) and I miss the sounds of children laughing and running around looking for toys.

  18. Oh my God that was soooo good, what an amazing tribute to something that was so dear to my heart, and I'm sure many others, as a kid. Who didn't love going to toys r us and walking up and down massive aisles of shiny new and beautifully colored toys. Godam I miss the eighties.

  19. Donโ€™t mind me…just watching a sculpting video and crying while the theme song plays in my head.

    I don't wanna grow up
    I'm a Toys R' Us kid
    They've got a million toys inside that I can play with

    I don't wanna grow up
    I'm a Toys R' Us kid
    They've got the best for so much less
    You'll really flip your lid

    From bikes
    To Trains
    To Video Games
    It's the biggest Toy Store there is

    I don't wanna grow up
    Cause baby if I did
    I couldn't be a Toys R' Us kid
    More games, more toys
    Oh boy!
    I wanna be a Toys R' Us kid

  20. I was born to late to have grown up with toys r us, but even I'm saddened that it's been gone, I went there once in a blue moon, I never bought anything and just walked around until the last time I was there when I did buy something, a Lego set for 70$, so at least I can say I did something there before it closed

  21. You have such a great and mesmerizing talent. This video was both amazing and sad. Toys r us was a huge part of my childhood and it pains me to see it fall.

  22. So after sculpting, what is sprayed on to the clay before painting? Is it a casting spray? So the oil based clay just stays as the base and the white spray is put on to prep as a base for paint? Sorry, Im wanting to try to make some stuff of my own, and dont completely get the process. Your work is beautiful

  23. Me:lookโ€™s at bag that has the giraffe on it*

    Tear goes down eye*

    Hugs bag*still me:I love you…….sculpture_geek thank you for reminding me of this :………)

  24. I know my sister has a Toys R Us t-shirt that says Never 4 Get with Geoffrey looking sad on top. Always thought that was hilarious

  25. I havenโ€™t been to toys r us in my life but I respect all of you who has I give a solute to all of the fond memories of all you people โœŠ๐Ÿ™‚
