MAN-E-RECAP// The Toy+Life exclusive “Deep Dish” Critters…

toylife crite

Following news of Bigmantoys’ Legend Critters earlier today, we thought it rather apt to finally show you guys the recently released “Deep Dish” exclusives for Toy+Life! Cast by our very own Tru:Tek in an authentic keshi-style rubber, the Chicago inspired blue/white marbled mini figures came packed in a custom mini deep pan pizza dish and sleek velcroed box. Limited to just 6 pieces (all of which were accounted for at C2E2), another batch of 14 have been created for those unfortunate to miss the first round. We hear that a waiting list of interested parties has already been created, so we suggest hitting up Toy+Life directly through their site here to enquire about any remaining slots…

Dropping alongside a whole host of custom toys and art at the Critical Hit C2E2 booth this weekend, the legendary Skinner introduces his latest run of Frenzy Barbarians… Featuring 4 different figures based on Frenzy’s new spiked and double-headed designs; Black Tooth Grin (ltd to 1), Nocturnal Gorg (ltd to 2), Iceberg Suicide (ltd to 3) and Nuke Dude (ltd to 4), each comes packed with a weapon accessory created with the aid of Frank Kozik, plus custom header card. Whilst it’s unlikely (we can always hope!), expect any remaining stock to hit the Critical Hit shop at some point next week…
