MAN-E-NEWS// The “Grizzle” Evil Head resin figure from Joe Whiteford…

004_original

Originally revealed back in April, Joe Whiteford is proud to reveal that the first figure in his ongoing “Evil Head” series, the abominable Grizzle, is now up for grabs! A crazy infusion of all things 80’s (and gross!), including Weird Balls, He-Man and cult horror, the gruesome 5.5″ tall beast has been originally sculpted by the artist (save for the Grizzlor parts), coming cast in resin and finished in the artist’s unmistakeable mix of earthy colours, layered washes and a ton of fake fur. Whilst the first round of one-offs and limited runs have already sold out since their release just yesterday, Joe has just loaded the “Original Variant” edition for all those that missed out. Limited to a run of 16 (of which only 12 will be made available), this version has been painted in a Greyskull/Mumm Ra inspired greyish-green, coming packed with 2 custom collector cards playing homage to both Weird Balls and MOTU. Priced at $69 each plus shipping, the OG Grizzle’s can be found in the artist’s store right here… The first in a series of 4-5 figures planned, stay tuned for news on the next addition soon!

It’s been a while since we last heard anything from the Galaxxorverse, and with good cause, as creator Ben Spencer has been busy preparing one hell of a release! First up, we have the debut of the Megakeshi Galaxxor… With the help of The Godbeast and the rest of the True Cast Studio, Ben has been able to take the highly popular 5.5″ to the next level in terms of playability, with the figure now coming cast in a flexible keshi-style rubber with 3 points of articulation and 3 interchangeable heads (including one by the mighty Matt Doughty!). Initially going on sale as a limited batch of one-off prototypes, the Megakeshi will be touching down in the Galaxxor store on Tuesday, November 19th at Noon CST, priced at $90 each… Joining the Deka-sized piece, Ben will also be unleashing a number of Mini Galaxxor’s too! Hand sculpt and cast by The Godbeast based on Ben’s design, the Kinnikuman scaled figures will be available in a number of one-off swirled and solid resins. Priced at just $17 each, expect these to touch down in-store alongside the Megakeshi next week…
