Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 13.41.21

Brandon Michael Barker over at ManOrMonster? Studios has resurrected the popular RayGun custom bootleg for a series of exclusives dropping at HeroesCon later today! Kit-bashed from a variety of action figures including a MOTU 200x Man-E-Face and an oversized Reagan head, the figure has been hand cast in resin by Barker, featuring MoM? compatible neo-mag joints in the waist and shoulders. Available in a number of hilarious strictly limited colourways including a Faker inspired “Fay-Kun”, the Cyberman “Ctrl/Alt/Del”, and our favourite, “Bedtime for Buster”, bearing a striking resemblance to the brains behind the Ghostbusters, Egon… Edition sizes and pricing is still forthcoming, although we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that at some make it to the MoM? web store next week for around $80 plus shipping (TBC).

“GRAMPOR CARES NOT FOR BLOG POSTS!”

Originally created as an in-joke amongst the bootleg action figure community, Ben Spencer‘s ‘Grampor’ is finally seeing the light of day courtesy of ManOrMonster? Studios! Some call him “artistically devoid”, others “just plain ugly”, the absolutely hilarious figure has been kit-bashed from a variety of vintage action figure KOs, coming cast by MoM? in a bootleg-tastic 2-tone blue and red resin. Featuring the now standard Warlords of Wor compatible neo-mag joints, each figure is due to come touch down with custom header card and a handful of Werthers (!) this July 4th. No news on pricing or edition size as of yet, so be sure to keep track of the MoM? IG feed here for the full lowdown soon…

Limited to just 5 pieces, Sgt. Krugg will be touching down in the Galaxxor store this Friday, May 24th for $85 plus shipping…
