Wasting no time since the final release in their debut series “Galaxy Commanders” last week, the team behind Skullmark are proud to reveal that their next upcoming sofubi project – the “SkullWorld Warriors” – is already entering the final prototyping stages! As with the Galaxy Commanders, the series has its foot planted firmly in the world of vintage knock off action figures, this time around drawing inspiration from the classic Underworld Warriors of the 1980’s. Featuring a similar, albeit slightly chunkier body to the original 5.5″ figures, the upscaled series is set to include all 6 heads – Krampus, Cobraman, the Devil, Skull, Goblin and Witch – from the original line. Due to go on sale via preorder in the Toy Underground store next week, we’re told that all 6 designs will be available as a complete set from the off. Stay tuned for a full reveal in vinyl, plus those all important release details, over the next few days…

Limited to an edition of 5 pieces, just 2 remain; a standard version for $70 and another, coming packed with a 10″ x 12″ Krang canvas, for $100.

David Healey aka Healeymade has just revealed that he’ll be releasing 2 new resin runs in his store later on today (4/29)! First off, we have the latest edition of the artist’s latest 5.5″ figure, the jaw-dropping Fra Diavolo. Rather aptly translating from French as “Brother Devil” – the nickname given to notorious Neapolitan guerrilla leader Michele Pezza – the stunning MOTU-scaled piece has been meticulously kit-bashed and re-sculpted from various vintage action figures, this time coming cast in a selection of mixed-part clear tinted resin for just $50 a piece… Next we have the latest edition of Healey’s highly popular Toil and Trouble. Standing at around 3″ tall, the figure has been kit-bashed from a vintage Disney’s Snow White figurine, coming complete with two mini ‘witch head’ hands – a subtle reference to the 3 hags in the infamous play, Macbeth. Produced in a mesmerising purple glitter infused resin, the old hag will be up for grabs alongside Fra in the Healeymade store today at 3pm EST, priced just $25 plus shipping…
