A Trio of Halloween Releases from DMS

DMS has announced a trio of new releases that will take place just in time for Halloween. The Skelevex Undead (pictured above) is a 2-inch tall pressure resin cast skull. It's limited to 20 pieces and will be released via the above link on Friday October 30th 2015 at 1:30PM GMT (that's 9:30AM ET) It's priced at $29.99 each.

The Teavil Dead is a custom Lunartik Mini Tea Series figure. It's limited to only 20 pieces and will be released on October 30th at 1PM GMT (9AM ET). You'll be able to grab one for $37.99.

And the Dead Dismal will go on sale Friday 30th October at 6PM GMT (2PM ET) from You can read all about it below. But the little undead hand will run £4.99 ($7.55).

On the back of the bemusing popularity of the vulgar cash cow that is the Dismalhand, comes the predictable Halloween gimmick version: Dead Dismal. Impress your friends and family by how easily you are parted with your hard earned money. Dead Dismal (and Dismalhand) are the ideal shape for scratching your head in disbelief at what you just purchased. The scariest thing about this blatant Halloween cash in, is how unimaginative this 'art piece' really is. [Insert clever zombie reference] Only the Walking Dead would be vacant enough upstairs to be taken in by this. Unimaginatively regurgitating the (un)original version [can't be arsed, copy & paste] Intended solely as an unauthorised art drop at the Dismaland Bemusement Park in Weston-Super-Mare by the uninvited "artist" DMS. This unauthorised art bombing took place on 28th August 2015. Measuring at around a disappointing 4cm, it's still not big and it's not even as clever as the first one. Badly hand painted resin, comes in a cheap plastic bag with a hastily home printed header. Comes with a scribbled certificate of non-authenticity, I hope you hate it. [Insert subtle Halloween reference] Blah, blah, zombies, bats, witches, pumpkins and other sh*t. Unsuitable for those under 15 years, unnecessary for those over 15 years. Limited to an uncertain amount. May contain imperfections, may contain nuts, dissatisfaction guaranteed* *Not guaranteed. Please allow ages for delivery, they will hopefully arrive damaged. Please note: may appear slightly different to the photographs due to the hand made nature of the item and shoddy workmanship. A pathetic percentage will possibly be given to charity.

Spectral Glow Despairs – Candy Corn Style


Stand Up! Records and Adam Quesnell will be celebrating 1 Year of Despair and Halloween by releasing a limited edition run of Spectral Glow Despairs.

StickUp Monsters: Dorobanii


Dorobanii is the newest character addition to the StickUp Monsters universe. He's a "little and timid jackalope that used to live in a North American desert. He was used to his life: some chilling at the desert, then some house robbing at the city. He stole a little bit of everything: from human food he enjoyed to small jewels and things that could pass unnoticed and people would think they had lost. One day he entered the wrong house at the wrong time, and ended up locked inside of a suitcase on its way to Japan!"

The Dorobanii figures stands 4.3 inches tall and is a hand cast and hand painted resin figure. Created, designed and painted by Javier Jiménez, and sculpted by Cristina Ravenna, Dorobanii is now available in two different editions: the Original Colorway and a Halloween Version. The Halloween Version is a closed edition of just 15 pieces. They can be purchased for $45.00 and $50.00 respectively.
