With apparel/toy brand Gory Hole‘s relaunch just around the corner, the folks over at Softoy Hobby are giving people a closer look at one of the many toy-related items that’ll be up for grabs in-store this Friday (June 24th 2016) at 4PM ET. The deluxe Warui Zonbi mini sets consist of mini rubber versions of both Selwyn and SS Werewolf from Series 1 (designed by Tru:Tek and sculpted by TTToy’s Makino-san) in a previously unreleased flesh-tone. The set will include matching soft enamel pin badges designed by Kotobuki-man, plus a matching Bikkuriman-style holographic sticker. Limited to an edition of just 20 sets, these will be priced at $35.00 each.
Artist James Fuller of Fuller Designs has released a new version of my Lil' Jammies - the Lil' Jammie Heroes. Th characters are posed in a classic crime fighter pose. The first round consists of Spawn, Batman, Spiderman, Venom, and Deadpool. Prices vary. Also, there's an option to request a character. This is limited to 10 commissions at the moment.
der Zerstörer: the Destroyer is a handmade designer art toy by Garrison Beau Scott. The artist has taken his project to Kickstarter to raise funds to produce the resin collectibles. The 4-inch tall, hand-poured and hand-painted resin toys will feature three points of articulation and an air flow action cape. Each one will come complete with a signed and numbered header card. As of right now, there are four different colorways. The actual resin figures are available beginning at the $35.00 funding level.
The project has reached its goal of $420.00 and will be funded on Thursday, June 30th 2016 at 1:00 AM EDT.
Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
Goodleg Toys will be releasing a new resin figure - The Defender of Bad Taste - as an homage to what might be Peter Jackson’s least popular (but grossest) film - the 1987 cult movie “Bad Taste”. The 3.75-inch tall figures are hand sculpted, hand cast, and hand painted. Each one comes in a hand pulled blister on a hand made card.
The edition will be limited to 15 pieces - 10 no-border (flesh), and 5 yellow-border (washed) pieces. They're priced at $65.00 and $70.00, respectively (plus $7 international shipping). You'll be able to get your hands on a little Lord Crumb beginning on Wednesday, June 15th 2016 at 7PM ET.
Artist Kyle Kirwan is releasing a new figure onWednesday June 15th 2016. They are called Blooms and will be an edition of 10 pieces. Each 6-inch tall figure is cast in resin and painted. They'll be available for $50.00.
Blooms are usually found tagging along around Willos, as they appreciate the safety the Willo herds provide. Blooms share the same diet as Willos and are much faster on their feet and better at finding food so Willos let the little guys lead the way to the good eats. Then of course the Willos shove the Blooms out of the way and eat their fill, but it works out in the end.
Tru:Tek has teamed up with TAN for a very special painted run of Mimi Monsters going be the name Pigumimis. Coming in at around 5.5 inches tall and featuring articulation in the neck, they've been cast in an orange vinyl, complete with metallic red, flesh, plum and black sprays inspired by classic kaiju infant, Pigumon. Limited to a run of just 5 pieces, these little guys will be going on sale in the Softoy Hobby Store at a random time this Friday, June 3rd 2016 for $140.00 each plus shipping.
Also, Tru:Tek will also be offering up a one-off “Killed Kane” Gamarah via silent auction on Friday. Designed and sculpted by Co.Oc29 for his ongoing Yokai Yu line, the 8-inch tall amphibious kaiju has been cast in a green soft vinyl with a multi-layered flesh paint app, copious blood splatters, plus a chest bursting worm omake inspired by the fateful Gilbert Kane scene from Alien. The auction will run for a 24 hour period starting 0.00am – 23.59pm this Friday, June 3rd 2016 (I think that's likely British Time) and interested parties will be required to direct message their maximum bid to Tru:Tek on Instagram (@trutek), with the highest securing the figure.
Goodleg Toys and Jason Lei Howden has announced the official Deathgasm resin action figures. The series features Brodie, Zakk, Aeloth, and Medina - as seen in the metal horror comedy from 2015. Each 3.75-inch tall figure is hand sculpted, hand casted, and hand painted. They come in a hand pulled blister on an an exclusive card featuring Ralph Niese's artwork. The figures will be available as singles for $66.60 each, $190.00 for a set of 3, and $240.00 for a set of 4 (plus $8.00 worldwide shipping).
"The Donald Trump Show” will officially drop on Saturday May 28th 2016 at Noon PST over at TimebanditsWatches.com for $75.00. The 3.75-inch tall limited edition (non-articulated) hand cast resin figure comes carded with artwork produced by Jonathan Stephens (TIMEBANDITS).
Of course, the card back qualifies that the figure isn't in support of Trump or any other candidate and it's "a satirical critique of the entire political circus and the times we live in". Just like we've seen various other presidential candidates turned into action figures over the past several elections.
BigManToys is dropping a stack of hand-painted, home-made 3D printed figures tonight - Friday May 20th 2016 - at Midnight London Time (7PM ET). These are being produced for hardcore Puppet Master, Double Dragon, and Mortal Kombat fans - they've been inspired by those series, of course. The designs are all one-off pieces using the same sculpts that were used in recent Bigmantoys minifigure releases, but double, or triple the size (between 4 and 6 inches tall). A lot of effort has been put into making these feel like hollow, hard vinyl. The figures have been smoothed and strenghtened through a series of labor-intensive processes and painted to perfection - hence the super-limited release. Look for them to be priced around $30.00 to $50.00 each.
