MAN-E-NEWS// The Bear Champ and Bokull resin blanks from JC Rivera…

Chicago based artist JC Rivera has returned to two of his most popular resin figures, the Bear Champ and Bokull, for a special round of blank releases! Coming in a variety of mix and matched colour parts, the newly revised, articulated Bear Champ is up on the store now for just $18 plus shipping… Figures come blind bagged, but we’re personally keeping our fingers crossed for the pink and yellow ensemble! Joining the Bear Champ, Bokull has been cast in a mixture of black, yellow, solid yellow, blue and white resins, with the colour choice this time left down to the purchaser. Priced at $20 each, the 2.5″ piece can be purchased directly here… Stay tuned for more news on Rivera’s upcoming resin projects soon.

Each signed and numbered, the 3″ figures have been uniquely finished by Rivera, coming bagged and headed for just $25 a piece… Be sure to head over to the Color Ink Book booth (#4934) from Friday onwards to secure yours…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “We Eat Friends” Dude custom from JC Rivera…

Chicago based artist JC Rivera is never one to rest on his laurels, once again presenting yet another stunning piece, the “We Eat Friends” custom Dude! One of the first we’ve seen since the deluge of pieces created for Dudebox‘s launch party, “We Eat Friends” has to rank as one of the best yet on the newly established platform. Featuring an unlucky critter being consumed by a huge Bearlee-like monster, the custom bears all the great hallmarks of a great Rivera piece; the unique sculpt style, unmistakable muted paint scheme, and of course, the trademark crown all making excellent use of the Dude’s rounded shape. No news as to whether this guy is available to purchase, so your best bet his to hit Rivera up through his site here

Expect more news on the UK’s hottest new designer toy company, Dudebox, to follow soon… we made our first (rather belated!) purchase today, and we must say, the quality of these guys’ work is up there with the best! Head over to our Twitter feed to have a look…
