For a main event luchador, life is all about fame, glory and Cadillacs…  But what about the opening-match jabroni’s working for just $20 and a torta?  Who are these villainous journeymen wrestlers destined to wander the Mexican wrestling circuit as perennial losers? Well, Robert Rodriguez over at Scraped Resin intends to shed light on these misfit luchadores, as he proudly presents Battling Bastards: From Parts Unknown! Consisting primarily of leftover scraps and unused casts, a total of 6 unique one-off resin wrestlers have been created for the release, each standing at around 4-4.5″ tall, complete with neo-mag articulation. Packaged in deluxe resealable clamshells featuring art from Casey Garcia, each figure comes with a number of stickers plus a limited edition trading card. Priced at just $30 each plus shipping, expect the latest Battling Bastards to touch down in the Scraped Resin store this Friday, February 14th at Noon PST…

MAN-E-NEWS// Battling Bastards: El Cabroncito custom bootleg from Scraped Resin…

The bootleg universe of the Battling Bastards just got a ‘LITTLE’ bigger, as El Cabroncito, the death-defying Mexican mini, joins Ultimate Carlos’ army of lucha thugs for the latest release from Scraped Resin! Kit-bashed and re-sculpted from various lucha figures, El Cabroncito differs slightly from the previous release in terms of scale and articulation- instead opting for a smaller, static design resembling the lucha ‘idols’ commonly found adorning dashboards and spiritual altars in Mexico. Initially coming in the pictured ‘Santo’s Blood’ colourway, the figures have been cast in a 2-part process using stage-blood red and silver-bullet coloured resins, with no paint applied. Limited to just 6 in this edition, each figure will be packaged with an El Cabroncito vinyl sticker, a limited edition saint card commerating the Santo’s Blood colourway, plus a header card featuring Lucha Libre legend El Santo. Dropping on the Scraped Resin store this Wednesday, May 8th at noon PST, El Cabroncito can be yours for just $30 plus shipping… Head over to the dedicated blog here for the full lowdown on the project.
