Piranha Prop Replica Model Resin Cast Kit from Tomenosuke

 

Tomenosuke is bringing back the killer fish that was created by two of the greatest monster artists - Rob Bottin who worked on “The Thing” (1982) and Phil Tippett on the “Starship Troopers” (1997) - for the low-budget film “Piranha” (1978) when they were still unknown. The Piranha Prop Replica Model Resin Cast Kit is produced under the permission of Chako Vanleeuwen, a film producer of the New World Pictures "Piranha”, by Tomenosuke.

The 12-inch long resin fish will come unpainted (there are instructions on how to paint it movie-accurate). The first run will be limited to 30 pieces. It will be available at 11AM JST on Friday April 20th 2018 (10PM ET on April 19th) for 25,500JPY (about $240). More info available here.

Cherry Blossom: A four part custom release

Taylored Curiosities has announced the new Cherry Blossom themed custom series. Three custom Kidrobot figures, each linked with a Cherry Blossom theme, yet varied with their own personality. A little companion is with each beast and contains a small piece of rose quartz in their tummy (which aids to balance our emotions). These teeny creatures are removable (with the use of extremely tiny magnets). Completed with removable bases, hand cut and varnished (and made from an old family apple tree). The fourth installment in this series is a Cherry Blossom themed, tree stump house. This is an original sculpt. Two little creatures inhabit this dwelling, along with their tiny baby in its acorn cot (the same healing crystals and attaching magnets are used in this piece).

Phantom of the Paradise Collectibles from Medicom

I am a huge fan of cheesy and cult classic films from the 1970's and 1980's. Phantom of the Paradise definitely falls into the latter category (it might also be considered cheesy, since it is a rock opera musical). But since it has cult status, that means we just might receive some collectibles based on the license. And Medicom has announced that they'll be doing just that, with this 400% Phantom of the Paradise Be@rbrick (shown above) and the Phantom of the Paradise Vinyl Collectible Doll (shown below).

GLOTRON Release from Clutter

Clutter has revealed the release details for the GLOTRON bootleg by Resin and Confused. This figure is an edition of 5 pieces and is produced in a mix of white resin with splattered colors, creating a homage to the OG figure. Plus, like the name sorta gives away, it glows in the dark.

This massive combiner robot stands at 17 inches tall and features magnetic articulation in the arms and wings. Priced at $300.00 apiece, they will be dropping via the above link beginning today (April 11th 2018) at Noon ET.

Schrab News – eBay, Robo Dog, and a new T-shirt

 

A post shared by Rob Schrab (@robschrab) on

Artist Rob Schrab (you might know him for Scud: The Disposable Assassin) has set up an eBay store to sell Scud related items. So, if you were looking to pick up some rare - signed - Scud-related items, that's the place. He's also released a new shirt design over at TeePublic (that design is shown below) with prices starting around $20.00, depending on how girthy you are. Finally, you can check out the above video of his Robo Dog creation getting all excited about Easter, eggs, and chocolate. This is something I'd like to see more of. It's handmade...with a lot of cardboard and even a Gatorade cap in there underneath the paint.
