Fresh from the Rat Skull‘s sell-out success earlier this month, Manny X kindly shares with us his latest resin infused custom, the breathtaking “Collector” custom threeA Bramble! Standing around 7.25″ tall and about 5″ wide, the hefty piece comes with Manny X’s signature exposed resin brain, an MP5, rocket launcher, frag grenade, removable pouches, bloody club and 4 custom painted resin skulls that can be hooked onto the back! Priced at just $180 plus shipping, The Collector will be touching down in the Manny X store this Saturday (June 30th) at 1pm Central time. As with the Rat Skulls, Manny X will be donating 10% of the proceedings to a charity of the purchasers choice (either Autism Science Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or Feed the Children)…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “Bra(v)ery” custom Bambaboss from Daniel Yu…

Daniel Yu aka Dory kindly shares with us his latest privately commissioned piece, the “Bra(v)ery” custom Bambaboss! Taking inspiration from V for Vendetta (hence the bracketed V), Daniel has really gone to town on the 5.5″ figure, sculpting three removable masks, various weapons and holsters, plus the huge plume of smoke jutting from the guy’s back! Expertly painted and weathered in a mixture of dirty brown and biege hues, the custom comes complete with meticulous rust weathering, realistic scratch detailing plus the words “Strength through unite- Unite through faith” scrawled along the left side of his chest. Anyone interested in taking a closer look at the piece will be glad to know that a pletora of hi-res images are available on the Dory Flickr now…


MAN-E-NEWS// Personal Trimensional Viewer: Turquiose Rotund Mk2 from Cris Rose…

“patiently awaiting attention at the repair centre…”

As previously revealed last week, the first round of Cris Rose‘s Personal Trimensional Viewer’s, the Turquiose Rotund Mk2, are set to land in his store tonight (May 21st).  Using the miniature Sprog platform “Bits and Bytes”, Rose has created intricate hand cast mini-dioramas that house the expertly painted figures in an acrylic dome. Priced at $65 plus shipping (the same as a Sprog), the turquoise beauties have been limited to just 5 pieces. Head over to the store at 6pm (London time) sharp, because these little fellas wont be around for long! Expect more limited runs of 3 or 5 in the near future…

Backstory//

“Not long after the phone, television and internet services merged, a single Holographic system, the Trimensional Reception, Interaction and Broadcast Endevour became the universal method of communication. Whether it was to chat with your Gran or watch the latest sports event on the other side of the world, Trimensional was the only way to do it. Being such a mouthful, most referred to it as TRIBE and most devices, as Trimensional Viewers, or TVs for short.

The Personal Trimensional Viewer was an extension of TRIBE, a small encapsulated unit that would sit on your desk and show you a live, photo realistic, 3D Hologram of a chosen loved one, 24 hours a day. It didn’t matter where they were or what they were doing, they’d be doing it in the little glass dome next to your mug of coffee.

The concept was purely innocent and technically perfect… but it soon became apparent that there was a serious social flaw in it – namely every time your mother went to the toilet or had a shower… It was a disaster. One of the fastest selling products in history became one of the fastest failures – no one wanted them and they were returned in their tens of thousands.”

Personal Trimentional Viewer (ThreeA Bertie one-offs)

Coinciding with the release of the Turquiose Rotund Mk2’s, Cris Rose will also be dropping two one-off Personal Trimentoinal Viewer custom Berties! Priced at $90 each, the run has been limited to just two one-off designs that will never be repeated again. Expect these in the store alongside the Turquiose Rotund Mk2’s at 6pm (London time) tonight…


MAN-E-NEWS// The custom Mini-Berties from Adam Pratt…

Anyone who regularly follows our good friend Adam Pratt on Instagram would have seen some of the amazing custom Mini-Berties that he’s been feverishly working away on. Well, after gathering a heap load of attention for the first (instantly sold-out) wave, Adam has teamed up with Tenacious Toys to bring his avid fans another batch! Featuring 6 one-off hand painted designs, expect these to hit the Tenacious Toys store soon. We’re guessing they’ll be available for around $10-$15 each plus shipping…


MAN-E-NEWS// Audrey Slips With Butterknife 1:1 and the WWRp Ceasars from 3A Toys…

Fresh from the huge success that was ReVenture, 3A Toys are proud to present their latest blind-boxed series, Audrey Slips With Butterknife! Sculpted by Ashley Wood, the strange-yet-beautiful line features a severed women’s foot, replete with a wide variety of different shoe variants. Priced at $110 each, these will be dropping in the Bambaland store on Thursday, May 17th at 9am HK time. Unlike most Bambaland releases, this will not be an open pre-order, so if you’re interested in snagging one, you better be quick!

With the original WWR Ceasars making their way to lucky collectors as we speak, 3A have announced that the stunning figures will also be making an appearance in WWRp scale (1:12)! Set to drop on the Bambaland sometime soon, Ceasar will be available in both clean and weathered variants, across a number of different designs (the Steve Jobs inspired Ap-Pel Steve J is pictured above). Available as singles or in a set, expect these to land on the Bambaland store for pre-order later this month…
