MAN-E-NEWS// The “Rise of the Beasts” series 1 from LittleRubberGuys’ Jon Karis…

After months of trials and tribulations including a fully backed yet cancelled Kickstater campaign (find out more here), plus a slew of production issues, the promising “Rise of the Beasts” series 1 from Little Rubber Guys‘ Jon Karis should finally be seeing the light of day soon! Primarily influenced by the 1986 Battle Beast line, the ROTBs are to be cast in hard wearing PVC, will come with similar articulation to the 80′s classics, and are also set feature the usual accessories including swords, axes and maces. Unfortunately, production shots sent from the factory of the line’s first figure, the Gold Lion, have revealed that although the sculpt is pretty much spot on, both arms and head are wildly disproportionate to the body… a new 3D print has been readied (pictured above), that will be moulded, reproduced and articulated before heading back to the factory in China soon… Alongside the 80mm Gold Lion, Jon has also been working on 2 new figures on a smaller scale, the 60mm Rhino, and an as yet unrevealed sidekick. These will also be making their way into production soon (as long as Jon can secure the original $25-$30 price point), so be sure to check back soon as we bring you more details on this awesome looking series…
