motu_resin_heman_promo

Joining the previously posted M.O.T.U.S.C.L.E and MOTU Stage 01 Prototype Set, the guys over at Super7 have revealed a whole slew of other goodies they’ll have up for grabs at Skeletor’s Lair during SDCC ’15. Located at Super7’s San Diego-based location, with entry only given to those who posses a “Skeletoken” – check our previous post here for details – the exclusive pop up shop is set to feature;

Amanda Visell x Super7 He-Man and Skeletor resin figures// Super7 team up with legendary toy artist Amanda Visell for her own unique take on MOTU’s lead protagonist and antagonist! Hand cast and painted in resin, the pair have been priced at $100 each. Limited to 1 per person.

Giant Size He-Man and Skeletor Test Shots// Mattel’s Giant Size He-Man and Skeletor return in an exclusive “Test Shot” colorway! Perfectly upscaled 12″ renditions of the original 5.5″ action figures, the pair have been cast up in a random selection of mixed-colored, injection molded parts to mimic the look of factory test shots. Packed on authentic MOTU blister cards, these have been priced at $95 each.

Mossman Chia Pet// Super7 revive the iconic Chia Pet for a special crossover MOTU set featuring who else, but Mossman! Soak it in water, apply the seeds, and watch the Man of Moss bloom before your eyes (well, in 1-2 weeks). Limited to one set per person, these have been priced at $29.99 each.

MOTU Character Glassware Set// Taking on 4 of MOTU’s most wanted, Super7 are proud to present their retro-themed character glasses. Featuring Skeletor, Beastman, Tri-Klops and Mer-Man, the quartet can be purchased as a set for $40 or individually for $10.

Various MOTU t-shirts// A total of 7 limited edition shirts will be available at Skeletor’s Lair, each priced at just $25 each.

Look out for the last of the Super7 SDCC ’15 exclusives later on today…

MAN-E-NEWS// The Lowl resin figures from Amanda Visell…

Fresh from the release of Primaries Wave 2, Amanda Visell is proud to present her latest one-off resin series, the Lowls. Limited to just 3 individually finished pieces this time around; the Fireberry, Licky and Nightengale, each has been hand cast and painted in Visell’s contrasting pastel/vivid paint style. Standing at an impressive 6″ x 6″ x 3″ around, the beautiful owl and lion cross can be yours for $350 plus postage through the Switcheroo web store. At the time of writing both the Fireberry and Nightengale have already sold-out, but our money’s on Vissel producing more of these mesmerising creatures in the near future…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Midnight Marauder and Norse Eatin’ Dragon customs from Jon Paul Kaiser…

The ever busy Jon Paul Kaiser has been hard at work on another two stunning custom pieces, the Cap’n Sturnbrau Midnight Marauder and Norse Eatin’ Dragon! The first custom we’ve seen Jon’s Sturnbrau “Pieces of Eight” variant, the piece abandons the use of bold lines and stark contrasts in favour of a more subtle approach, accenting the sculpt’s beautiful shapes whilst offering a hint of the detail found in the original production piece. No news as to whether this guy is available to purchase, but we’re guessing that he was for a private commission. Hit Jon up through Flickr for more details…

Yet another rare choice of platform, JPK’s next piece comes in the form of the Norse Eatin’ Dragon, a 3″ Amanda Visell Baby-Eatin’ Croc from the Vivisect Playset! The faux wooden sculpt of the figure looks tremendous in Jon’s black and white style, really helping to give a new spin on an already ingenious piece. Our favourite detail has to be the poor little viking awaiting certain death- his Obelix styled pants and moustache are absolutely hilarious! Again, we’re unsure as to whether this piece is available to purchase, so your best bet is to hit Jon up here.


MAN-E-NEWS// Amanda Visell’s Primaries: Round 2…

Hot off the heals of their recent debut, Amanda Visell‘s “Primaries” are already set for wave 2! In the moulding stage at present, the latest additions will also be coming in a set of 5; an owl, girl, ram, cat and snake. If the initial release is anything to go by, the hand cast resin figures will be available in 2 different colourways, in either a set or individually (barring one as-yet unconfirmed set exclusive), with a price tag of $150 and $30 respectively. Expect these to drop on the Switcheroo store at some point in the next couple of weeks…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “Primaries” resin figures from Amanda Visell…

After a week of teasers on her blog, Amanda Visell has finally released her new “Primaries” series out into the wild! Featuring 5 different creatures sculpted in Visell’s unmistakable style, the 3″ tall figures have been hand sculpted, cast and painted at her studio in Los Angeles. Featuring a bear, lion, pegasus, rain monster and set-exclusive turtle design, the toys come in either pink/orange or blue/green washes and can be bought individually for $30 or as a set (with the aforementioned turtle) for just $150 plus shipping. Available exclusively on the Switcheroo store right now, each lovingly crafted figure comes bagged with a header card designed by Visell…


MAN-E-NEWS// Custom Topsy Turvy Crocs from Amanda Visell…

Amanda Visell has just revealed her latest custom project, a hand painted set of four Topsy Turvy Crocs (originally released through Secret Fresh last year). Priced at $1000 each plus shipping, the four 17″ tall hand made wooden toys come in 6 Eyed Croc, Argodile, Stripelberry and Crocogile flavours, all of which are available to purchase exclusively through Visell’s store now…
