Teased here just a few days back, we can now reveal that the mini “Monsterex” keshi from A.R.M (Alien Robot Monster) will be up for grabs this week! Directly inspired by one of the many foes found in the classic TMNT Adventures comics, the ingenious mix of Universal Monsters – including elements from the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankentstein’s Monster, the Mummy and Dracula – has been perfectly realised in 2.4″ keshi-form, coming digitally sculpted in Z-Brush, 3D printed and then cast in a rubbery resin by A.R.M. Going on sale via preorder through the A.R.M store this Wednesday, October 21st at 9am Pacific time, a total of 3 different colorways will be up for grabs – “M.U.S.C.L.E” flesh, “S.L.U.G” green and “Decepticon Decoy” purple – coming in at just $20 each plus shipping…

With the “Boy Wonder” Robin receiving a release as part of the ongoing DC Comics-licensed Retro Sofubi Collection earlier in the year (check him out here), creators Medicom Toy are proud to reveal that his partner, the caped crusader Batman, is now finally up for grabs too! Joined by one of our favourite DC anti-heroes, Deathlock aka The Terminator, the pair have once again been sculpted by Bear Model in the classic vintage sofubi style, standing at around 10″ tall, featuring 5 points of articulation and coming complete with character specific accessories- a vinyl cape for batman and an awesome metallic ammo clip for Deathstroke. Currently available via preorder in Japan through the Medicom Toy store, overseas customers can find both figures on Rakuten right here for just $71.81 each plus shipping. Up for grabs until April 30th, shipping for the pair has been estimated at late July ’15…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Robot 13 Kickstarter resin 5 pack from Deadbear Studios…

After months of set backs and delays, we can finally reveal the full Robot 13 mini figure set from Deadbear Studios! Created for Blacklist Studios’ Robot 13 Kickstarter campaign (find out more here), the pack features 5 of the comic series’ most memorable characters including King!, El Conejo Furioso and of course Robot 13, each cast in both black and pewter editions. Unfortunately only available to pledgees of the original Kickstarter campaign at the moment, the M.U.S.C.L.E style figures should hopefully be making their way to the Deadbear Studios store in some form or another soon… Original pledgees will be glad to know that orders are now slowly being filled, so expect your set soon!


MAN-E-NEWS// The “El Conejo Furioso” Robot 13 mini figure from Motorbot…

It’s been a while since we last heard anything about the Robot 13 mini figures (last posted here), so it came with great relief yesterday to find the fifth and final sculpt on Motorbot‘s instagram feed yesterday! Taking one of our favourite Robot 13/King! characters, the rabbit eared lucha mask wearing El Conejo Furioso, Motorbot has faithfully recreated the rotund figure in the 2″ M.U.S.C.L.E scale with ease… Created for the Robot 13 Kickstarter a couple of months back, the set of 5 resin figures should be making their way to pledgees in both black and pewter colourways sometime in September/October. Unfortunately, we still don’t have details on whether the release will be available outside of the KS campaign, but we’re guessing Motorbot will be working on a few editions for his shop in the near future…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Robot 13 mini-figures from Motorbot…

Even after his grisly encounter with an Exacto knife last week (check Instagram for the grisly details!), the ever prolific Motorbot has soldiered on, and whilst not busy casting a vast array of Meatsters, he’s been putting the final touches to the highly anticipated Robot 13 resin 5 pack! As you can see from the shot above, the 3 standing figures are nearing completion (the other 2 are crawlers!), and boy are they looking sweet! Sadly we’re still unfamiliar to the series (we still await our Robot 13 Kickstarter trade print!), so we can’t confirm which characters will be featuring apart from Robot 13 and KING!… so expect a big update once we’re more in the know. Created for the Robot 13 Kickstarter a couple of months back, the 5 packs should be making their way to pledgees in both black and pewter colourways sometime in July/August. Unfortunately, we still don’t have details on whether the release will be available outside of the KS campaign, but we’re guessing Motorbot will be working on a few editions for his shop in the near future…


MAN-E-NEWS// Me and Mr Death resin figures from Roberto ‘RX’ Gionta…

Italian comic artist and toy designer Roberto ‘RX‘ Gionta is proud to reveal his latest figures based on his on-going web series, Me & Mr Death. Presenting the 2 characters in the same aesthetic as the comic for the first time (previous releases have had a more chunky, super deformed style), Me & Death have been cast in resin and hand painted by RX himself.

Coming replete with a host of accessories including a scythe, beer mug and beer tin, each pair of figures have been lovingly packaged in a spray-stenciled wooden box. Limited to just 7 pieces, Me & Mr Death are available to order through the RX store now for just  € 79 plus shipping. Anyone interested in picking up the first 2 runs of Me & Mr Death figures (pictured below), will be happy to know that they can still be purchased for just  €49 and  €23 each…

MAN-E-NEWS// Robot 13 mini figure reveal from Motorbot x Blacklist Studios…

Thomas Hall of Blacklist Studios has just sent over the first full shot of Motorbot‘s finished Robot 13 sculpt, leaving us with no doubt that the eventual 6 pack release will become one of the artist’s most sought after releases. Offered as part of the Robot 13 trade book Kickstarter project (featured here) to anyone pledging $50 or more, the M.U.S.C.L.E scaled Robot 13, along with KING! and 4 other as-yet unannounced characters will be available in both pewter and black colourways (depending on your pledge point) and will remain exclusive to Kickstarter backers. Currently on $7,021 out of the $7,500 required and with still 11 days to go, we’re putting our money on the project meeting it’s target, and personally can’t wait to get our hands on these promising figures! Expect more news soon…
