We’re back!!! After an amazing few days with Rampage Toys‘ Jon Malmstedt over in Japan, we’re finally catching up with the stack of news and reports we plan to share with you guys- and what better way to start than with a recap of the Rampage Studios Keshi Party?! Featuring a ton of mini figure bootlegs cast up by our very own Tru:Tek including the final appearance of the Cupcake Luchas, hilarious new gachapon micros and Nama Niku’s Kentucky Fried Muscle, these were also joined by exclusive versions of both Tankhead and Eraserhead courtesy of Eric Nilla, plus the debut of The Disarticulators’ latest figure, Atomic Uchuujin- a strong showing all round we’re sure you’ll agree! With a high calibre of attendees including a number of high profile keshi collectors, the boss of Mandarake and Longneck’s Yoda-san, it truly was an honour (not to mention completely surreal!) to be in the company of so many cool people & awesome toys…

Now onto what you guys really want to know about, the online sales! Whilst unfortunately Atomic Uchuujin sold out during the show, a number of the other figures remain, including limited flesh versions of all the new keshi customs, Nama Niku’s pachi battle sets, a whole horde of gacha figures, plus one of only two flesh Oozeball and Claw sets in existence! Currently being offered up to newsletter subscribers (sign up here if you haven’t already!), any remaining figures will be up for grabs in-store later this week…

Following our announcement of the “One Night Only” Keshi Party over at Rampage Studios next Friday, we thought we’d share with you guys a few of the figures that’ll be making an appearance! Joining the previously revealed Catfighter keshi, Rampage Toys’ Jon Malmstedt has got to work on a trio of all-new bootlegs for the infamous Rampage gacha machine; the bike headed Otobai Man, plus micro 2 pack Robo Racer and Tank Titan, all 3 of which will be joined by a generous helping of the original Cupcake and Super Cupcake Luchas (not pictured). Also headed for the gacha comes the debut of the latest figure from Nama Niku, Kentucky Fried Muscle! Featuring a hilarious kit-bashed drumstick head plus Nama’s signature belt branding, the figure, along with all the above, is currently being produced by our very own Tru:Tek in a mix of vintage keshi red, blue and of course flesh… Stay tuned for further reveals throughout next week (including the debut of Atomic Uchuujin), plus a full show account from Tru:Tek next weekend!
