Fresh from the huge success that was “The Rise of the Samhain“, Jeff Beck over at Menace Inc teases us with the first promo image from the studio’s debut collaborative art toy project… the 7 Seals! Due to feature some of the resin scene’s finest including Cash Cannon, We Become Monsters, Motorbot, and of course Jeff himself, the series is set to come blind boxed, with a Christmas release of December 21st. No news as of yet as to what will be featuring in the series (although we’re guessing wax seal designs must feature!), so be sure to stay tuned for more reveals and release info to follow very soon!
Tenacious Toys and Deadhand Toys have teamed up once again for the follow-up to THE blind-box series of the year, Resin is King! Featuring a staggering list of 16 artists this time around, each has developed their very own sub 3″ figure, casting them in a strictly limited run of 10. Offering a huge amount of diversity this time around, anyone lucky enough to grab a box can expect to find the likes of David Bondi’s famed Akashi heads, Argonaut Resin’s Sucio, UME Toy’s Patty, or even Killroy III’s fully working Hungry Hippo rings inside! As with the first series, one box will also contain a golden ticket, which will entitle one lucky collector a brand new 8-inch Tuttz that matches Argonaut’s Sucio mini figures in the series! Working alongside Kidrobot NY, Tenacious Toys and Dead Hand Toys will be hosting a launch party at the store on October 4th from 6-8pm, where you’ll be able to pick up a box (or a case!), meet a few of the featured artists, plus get a chance to score one of five exclusive limited edition prints! Any remaining stock will be hitting the Tenacious Toys store the following day for $25 a box or $400 for a case (which guarantees one figure from each of the 16 artists).
As promised in our post on Friday, Eric Nocella of Argonaut Resins has released full details (and pics!) of his latest resin series, the mini Kings of Atlantis skulls… Similar to the original “King” edition that was released and instantly sold out a while back, the new shrunken down versions of the mysterious Demi-God skulls have been inspired by the 10 King rulers of the island of Atlantis… Coming blind boxed in numbered mini custom crate-styled packaging, each of the 10 kings has been represented in a variety of different styles and colours, ranging from clear tints, jade tints, solids and even 3 GITD chases! Here’s the full breakdown of what to expect-
- War King – reds
- Vengeance King – oranges
- Sun King – yellows
- Peace King – silver
- Wealth King – gold
- Love King – pinks
- Sky King – blues
- Sea King – Purples
- Forrest King – greens
- Wisdom King – bronze
Limited to an edition of 100 in total, Eric will be dropping the first batch of 25 skulls on the Argonaut Resins store on Monday, August 20th at 10PM EST, priced at just $28 shipped (in the US). Stay locked on the Argonaut Resins site for details of the following releases soon, plus a reveal of the supposed powers that each king’s skull possesses!
Ahead of a full reveal (expected later in the week), Eric Nocella over at Argonaut Resins has announced details of his latest project, the Kings of Atlantis skulls… in mini form! Similar to the original “King” edition that was released and instantly sold out a while back, the new shrunken down versions of the mysterious Demi-God skulls have been based on the 10 King rulers of the island of Atlantis… Due to come cast in Argonaut Resins’ signature wide range of finishes including solids, metallics, and clear tints (plus a few chase GID’s!), the mini KoA skulls will be released in 4 waves of 25 blind boxed pieces, with the first wave dropping next week sometime and the last hopefully making an appearance at NYCC in October. Stay tuned for a full reveal in the next few days!
“Ten Demi-God Kings ruled the fabled island of Atlantis thousands of years ago. They all perished when their paradise was destroyed by the Gods. All that remain are their skulls…each endowed with an incredible power that is passed onto whomever has the skull in their possession. They say too much power is not a good thing…are you willing to take a chance and find out if this is true…?”

“For my first line of designer toys, I wanted to add function… Everything else out there is all about form, but CAPSLs are actually useful too. And I wanted to add a 4th dimension, since so much of what I do focuses on what’s inside; CAPSLs let you go inside and actually use that space to store things.” -Jason Freeny
As if the recently announced X-Ray Gummis weren’t enough (find out more here), “dissection master” Jason Freeny is proud to reveal yet another long awaited project now coming to fruition, the CAPSL designer “pill” fob keychains! Working alongside Jailbreak Collective’s FCTRY division, Freeny has produced a series of 12 original designs plus chases ranging from sweet (Flower Bomb) to zany (Frog Squid), that can be taken apart to either store small objects, or interchanged with other designs (FCTRY has stated there are well over 100 combinations!). Available from the official CAPSLs site now, the full series can be purchased for just $99 plus shipping (including a free limited edition Medicine Man figure), or individually for $7.99. FCTRY have promised several other new designs over the next few weeks, so be sure to stay tuned for more news as soon as it hits…
