Hellpainter’s Hell Maijin garage kit…

Brought to our attention by collector Beantime during his walk through the halls of Superfestival 71 yesterday, we thought we’d shine some light on this rather interesting garage kit from Hellpainter… the Hell Maijin! One of the best homages to the classic Ooze-It doll we’ve seen to date, the beautifully textured figure brings a whole new level of creepiness to the table, featuring mutated alien skin, sagging craters and our favourite, an Alien-style tongue creature! Produced in an unassembled blank Ooze-green resin (the painted version was just for display), interested parties looking to bag Hell Maijin can currently find him alongside an number of other kits in the Hellpainter store for just 9,000yen ($83) plus shipping…

Gargamel’s Tower Lobo Showa plastic kit…

In a similar vein to the Mini City play set we featured just yesterday, Gargamel have just unleashed their very own to-scale kaiju accessory, the Tower Lobo Showa! Inspired by the classic transforming toys and cheap plastic kits of the 1980s, the Takara-esque robot transforms into a tower that can be gripped by standard sized kaiju. Produced in white and red plastic mounted on sprues for easy assembly, this first version of Tower Lobo Showa is currently up for grabs via preorder through Japanese retailer PLM, coming in at a wallet friendly 600yen ($5) plus shipping…

Kenth Toy Works’ 1/6th Nadsat Boy sofubi…


Originally debuting in resin garage kit form way back in April 2015, the 1/6th scale “Nadsat Boy” from Kenth Toy Works has proven so popular that it’ll be making a second appearance in sofubi soon! Pictured here in a glorious unpainted white vinyl, the beautifully sculpted homage to Kubrick’s cult flick “A Clockwork Orange” stands at a lofty 12″ tall, coming with 4 points of articulation plus a removable resin cain. Whilst release details are still scarce at present, our money’s on the figure seeing its first release at Wonderfestival Winter 2016 early next month… Stay tuned for more news as we get it!


MAN-E-NEWS// The 1/6th scale “Nadsat Boy” resin garage kit from Kenth Toy Works…


Having already made appearances in sofubi and 3.75″ action figure form over the past couple of years, Kenth Toy Works‘ signature Clockwork Orange-inspired character – Nadsat Boy – has finally made the transition into 1/6th scale! Standing at around 12″ tall, the hyper-realistic figure features many of the characteristics seen in previous releases, including removable cain, “maskie” mask and bowler hat. Due for release as a vintage-style resin garage kit soon, interested parties can check out the fully painted and assembled prototype seen above at Superfestival 68 this Sunday, April 26th- here’s hoping for a full release soon after!
