Spidey-Bruv By Kosrobot

Kosrobot has released his Spidey-Bruv figure, the first of a series called Luxury Money Cartel. Spidey-Bruv is a 6 inch action figure, with 5 points of articulation, magnetic joints and some fun accessories. Hand made of soft resin, this figure has the feel of a factory made toy. It includes three accessories - Supreme Money Gun, Gangsta Chain, and Money.

It is now available at store.kosrobot.com for $35.00 plus $11.00 for worldwide shipping.

"Tired of his regular life, Spidey took to the streets to become real gangsta. As fate and hustle hard would have it, he found the Luxury Money Cartel where he became the Iron Poppa's right-hand man. He constantly gets into trouble, but in the end always gets cash and results. He likes big butts and swag life.

Spidey-Bruv’s favorite kicks are Yeezy Boost 350
and his favorite accessory is Supreme Money Gun."

The “TREPAS” Gang

Emilio Subirá's newest release is known as the "TREPAS". A special "barrel of monkeys" reinterpretation, this version features a bunch of guys in suits hanging from each other (or rather trying to climb each other).

In Spanish "trepa" is how we call that person who does whatever he has to do to get to the top, this kind of dude who walks over the others with no scruples to achieve his goals, the typical teacher's pet but grown up. So there they are, climbing for their bananas, hahaha.

The nearly 5-inch tall resin pieces are available at emiliosubira.storenvy.com for $20.00 each (a pack of 3 for $58.00).

10 Questions with… Selina Briggs (The Jelly Empire)

1. Where are you originally from?

I'm originally from the UK, from a small town called Chapel-en-le-Frith. It's about an hours drive from Manchester, but I've been living New York for about 12 years and absolutely love it!
 
2. Who is your favorite artist (any artist, any medium)?
Oh wow! This question is a tough because I have so many. I don't really have a all-time favourite but I can name some of my current faves. I've always been a massive fan of Quentin Blake since reading Raold Dahl books when I was little; his illustrations make me happy. I'm also in love with Camilla d'Errico's neo-manga art style, Matt Dixons adorable robots, and a more recent discovery Camille Chew's mystic/mythology inspired artwork!
 
3. What was your favorite toy line as a child?
I played with any toy that was from a favourite cartoon.  I have 2 younger brothers so it was a lot of TMNT and Thundercats!
 
4. What's your most prized collectible?
I don't think I really have one. Recently I've started to get into buying more artwork over collectibles. The walls of my apartment are looking a little empty!
 
5. What was the last film you watched?
I think the last movie I watched at the cinema was Dr. Strange, but the last movie I watched at home was (for the 100th time) was Hot Fuzz!
 
6. Do you unbox and display or keep MIB (mint in box)?
I have no will power to leave MIB. Unbox everything!
 
7. What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows' but the last comic book was a really funny graphic novel called 'Rat Queens'.
 
8. Star Trek or Star Wars?
Don't make me choose!  I love them both!
 
9. What motto/creed do you try to live by?
Goonies Never Say Die!
 
10. What was the inspiration behind the piece that you produced for the Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change toy show?
I really love textures, especially weathered metals. The idea that time and environment can change the colour, and the feel of something, can be so beautiful. I wanted to apply that to my robots. Fresh out the factory they were probably shiny and clean and looked state of the art, but when neglected, forgotten about and left to the forces of nature and time, that shiny exterior decays and this transforms the robot itself into something else. It sounds sad but to me it's not. They evolved and became unique in appearance and continue to function amid all the stresses of time 🙂

I have many but my top three are Frank Frazetta, Art Adams, and Katsuhiro Otomo.

3. What was your favorite toy line as a child? 

My favorite toyline was definitely the first Star Wars line. My amazing Aunt Nancy gave me the entire line and the Death Star station playset for Christmas that year. My Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle takes second place for sure. lol

Hmmm I kept some cool one of a kind prototypes from my Art Asylum days-a 12” Borg Drone we sculpted for playmates and Eminem one shot would be on that list.:)

5. What was the last film you watched? 

The last film I watched was “War of the Planet of the Apes” which I loved.

6.Do you unbox and display or keep MIB (mint in box)?

I like to keep MIB because I realize that I don’t play with toys anymore-lol

Do comics count? LOL If so, It would be Batman White Knight by Sean Murphy-highly recommended!

Both lol I love Star Wars for its fantasy aspect but I love Trek for its level of maturity and realism.  I am loving the new Discovery series and its main character Michael Burnham.

9. What motto/creed do you try to live by? 

Carpe Diem!  Need to do this more often.

10. What was the inspiration behind the piece that you produced for the Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change toy show? 

My inspiration for my piece was to reflect on the state of our political system and the people we appoint to represent us.
