MAN-E-NEWS// B.A.S.T.A.R.D Riders WIP from Triclops Studios…

BASTARD-Rider

With Superfestival just around the corner, Rob over at Triclops Studio shares an early WIP custom that we can only assume will be making an appearance at Rampage Toys‘ booth… the B.A.S.T.A.R.D Riders! A hilarious homage to cult 80’s cartoon/toy line Dino Riders, the piece is set to feature Rampage’s Ankylo Cyclops Dino sofubi with a retooled Ballock B.A.S.T.A.R.D at the helm- hopefully stocked to the brim with weaponry in a custom built saddle! We’ll be keeping a close eye on the project as we get closer to Superfestival later this month (September 29th), so be sure to stay tuned for a full reveal soon!

MAN-E-NEWS// The new B.A.S.T.A.R.D store, Bullet Belt blanks and more from Triclops Studio…

bast-1

Hot off the heals of the recent OG Bullet Belt debut, the Triclops duo have just revealed a ton of new projects in the works… arguably the biggest coming in the form of the long awaited B.A.S.T.A.R.D store! Set to become the number one online location for all your shonky-tonk toy needs, the shop is set to feature a whole slew of old and new B.A.S.T.A.R.D releases, kicking things off with the previously posted Venice Bastard Beach Twin Pack (check our earlier coverage here). Details on the exact whens and wheres are still to be finalised, so we suggest keeping a close eye on the new Triclops twitter feed for more details soon…

As if news of the impending store opening wasn’t enough, the guys have also revealed that the Bullet Belt blanks will be making an appearance sometime soon! Available in either white, black or flesh, expect to see these guys up for pre-order through Unbox Industries over the coming weeks… we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for some exclusive customs runs at some point too! Last, but by no means least, Triclops have also dropped a WIP of the latest B.A.S.T.A.R.D, their entry for Super Cooper/TAG’s latest group show, Music To My Ears. Just about ready for it’s silicone bath, we’ll be bringing you the full lowdown on the little guy later in the week… Head over to TAG’s event page here to find out a little more about the event!

After months of speculation, Unbox Industries are very happy to announce details of the very first Bullet Belt B.A.S.T.A.R.D from Skinner! The debut figure in Triclops‘ new B.A.S.T.A.R.D Universe off-shoot, the lofty vinyl figure measures in at 30cm tall, coming painted in a gorgeous mix of aquas and metallics originally designed by Skinner. Housed in an oversized pop-open blister pack, each full sized figure comes complete with an injection moulded, keshi-style variant, standing at around 2″ tall and coming in a monochromatic yellow exclusive to this first run. Up for preorder through Unbox at Taipei, and through Skinner at SDCC, online sales will begin on July 21st with a price of $150 per set…


MAN-E-NEWS// Triclops’ ‘BeefCake’ custom bootleg from the Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach twin pack…

We’ve been following the progress of Triclops‘ ‘Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach‘ release for the past month or so now, and with the reveal of the pictured BeefCake (aka Protein Bar-t aka Muscle Wayne!) this week, we’re guessing we won’t have too much longer to wait! To be joined by the previously posted ‘Final Boss’ from Ralph Niese x The Tarantulas, the thongtastic figure has been kit-bashed from what looks like a variety of MIMP Wrestlers, coming with huge doubled-up fists and a hilarious knuckle six-pack! We’ll be keeping a close eye out for firm release details over the coming weeks, but in the meantime we suggest staying locked on the Triclops IG feed here for the first test shots soon…

BASTARD Beach

Following the WIP sculpt we unofficially leaked a couple of weeks back (check it out here, we’re not posting it again!), the guys over at Triclops have finally revealed how the incredible figure will be released… as they proudly present the ‘Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach’ Twin Pack! Sculpted by the supremely talented Ralph Niese based on a design by The Tarantulas (which, funnily enough can be found on the front of the recently released Nibblers Annual- it’s the big pink one!), the M.U.S.C.L.E scaled figure is due to come cast in a resin 2 pack, with another thong-tastic figure from the Triclops boys to be revealed soon. Release details are still thin on the ground at the moment, but you can be sure that as soon as we hear anything, you guys will be the first to know…


MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Final Boss’ WIP mini figure from Ralph Niese x The Tarantulas x Triclops(?)…

nibbling bastard

Legendary illustrator and sculptor Ralph Niese has once again teamed up with The Tarantulas for the latest NIBBLER release, although this time around it’s a little different to the Glyos resins the pair are famed for! Taking inspiration from the iconic M.U.S.C.L.E line, the stunning ‘FINAL BOSS’ stands just a little taller than a standard figure- although measuring roughly 3 times wider! Posted on Niese’s Flickr stream with the tag “coming to a clops near you…”, we can only assume that the figure is part of an upcoming B.A.S.T.A.R.D project with Triclops Studios… Stay tuned for the full lowdown as soon as we hear anything!


MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Bullet Belt’ painted proto from Skinner…

bulletbelt-e1367275881274

Originally debuting at ToyCon UK earlier in the month in both black and flesh prototype form,  the jaw-dropping Bullet Belt from Skinner made an appearance at C2E2 over the weekend as a fully painted master! Created as part of Triclops Studios upcoming B.A.S.T.A.R.D Universe project, the mini figure inspired piece stands at a lofty 10″ tall, this time coming with Skinner’s signature choice of metallic aqua sprays and black/red detailing. It’s still unclear as to whether this complex paint job will be translated for the full production run, or if it’ll remain a one off piece- painted or not though, Bullet Belt has got to be one of the strongest vinyl figures we’ve seen all year… Fingers crossed either way we see a release soon!
