After months on the drawing board, the debut sofubi from Canada-based toy artist Monsterfoot Creations – the awesome Skull Boy – is now looking to get funded via it’s very own Kickstarter campaign! Standing at around 8″ tall and coming with articulation in the head, arms and waste, the neo-kaiju style figure is due to come cast in a standard, unspecified colorway as well as a limited, Kickstarter exclusive GID. Currently up for grabs with a variety of different pledge tiers available – ranging from $60 for the basic figure, $75 for an additional “Super Battle” head, and $200 for a custom hand paint from a selection of top artists – Skullboy will be available through his dedicated campaign page right here until close on Friday, May 15th…


MAN-E-NEWS// UME Toys’ ScamWave test pull revealed…

9442253213_775cc5f1ae_o

Originally teased here last week, Richard Page over at UME Toys has just revealed the first test-pull of ScamWave… and it’s EPIC! A re-make of Rich’s incredible one-off Soundwave sculpt created last year (check him out here), the new version features a tighter, chunkier design than it’s predecessor, standing at around 7.5″ tall and now coming with a whopping 9 points of articulation. To be painted up in the familiar weathered navy blue and silver of the original, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a full reveal plus those all important release details later in the week… Keep track of the UME Instagram feed here for further developments as they happen!


MAN-E-NEWS// The custom Soundwave sculpt from UME Toys…

After having to wait a little while longer than expected for some quality decals, Rich over at UME Toys is proud to finally unveil the much anticipated Soundwave sculpt… and boy, was it worth the wait! Featuring the same unmistakable broken-geometric style as the previous Iron Man sculpt (featured here), the long spindly arms and legs, coupled with the flat design of of the body really help give a new spin on the well-worn Transformers aesthetic… giving the robot an almost vulnerable feel that we’ve never seen before. Sculpted using polymer clay and finished in Rich’s usual signature weathered style, Soundwave should be touching down in the UME Toys store sometime soon for around £190-£200. Stay tuned for a full reveal of the UME Toys NYCC skulls tomorrow, including at look at the very special one-off “Brains” edition!


MAN-E-NEWS// WIP Soundwave one-off sculpt from UME Toys…

With the recent announcement of Hasbro’s Transformers licensing agreement with both Super7 and the Loyal Subjects, it only seemed fitting that Rich over at UME Toys should finally bring his popular Soundwave illustration to life… and judging by the above WIP shot, this will be the one take on the popular franchise that is sure to not disappoint! Very similar in style to Rich’s 2011 Iron Man sculpture (which just so happened to be the first piece of Rich’s work we ever featured!), the beautiful piece has taken hours of painstaking sculpting and sanding to achieve a stunning “perfectly imperfect” geometric style. Currently awaiting a final lick of paint plus authentic hand cut decals, Soundwave should be revealed in his final state at some point later this week…
