unnamed-40

Bob Conge aka Plaseebo kindly shares details of his latest custom release, the rather aptly titled Lost Kaws! A one-of-a-kind mash-up of Kaws‘ “Astroboy” vinyl figure with a hand cast resin Plaseebo skull, the figure has been treated to additional “bone” sculpting, coming complete with simple white and black sprays that leave the original figure’s paint app largely intact. Going on sale in the Plaseebo store this coming Friday, October 2nd, pricing for the signed and dated figure is still to be confirmed…

With JC Rivera‘s “Real” Bear Champ proving a huge success early last year, the Chicago based artist returns with yet another realistic take on his signature character, and this time he’s in full swing! Rather aptly titled “Attack Mode”, the wonderfully dynamic sculpt appears to be in the same scale as the original, coming in at an impressive 4.5″ of hand cast resin. Due to be making an appearance in the JC Rivera store soon, we can hopefully expect painted versions to come in at around $50, whilst DIY custom blanks should run at $35 (TBC). Keep track of Rivera’s dedicated IG feed here for news on the release soon…

Swiftly following the “SuckerPunch” Phideas Gold custom we posted earlier in the week, JC Rivera has announced details of his latest resin figure, the ‘Real’ Bear Champ! A commissioned sculpt by the artist based on his ever popular Bear Champ character, the ultra-realistic 4″ piece offers a perfect contrast to the original’s more stylised, cartoon-like approach. Due to go on sale in Rivera’s store this Friday, March 1st, the artist will be offering up 2 different versions; a fully painted edition for $50 and a DIY blank for just $35 (prices subject to change). No news on edition size, so we suggest you guys keep checking the store tomorrow to be in with a chance of grabbing one!


MAN-E-NEWS// Ironmask’s Dr Dark “Fistful of Aliens” custom…

Taking Yes! Toys’ Fistful of Aliens, a little known mini figure series from the late 90’s, Ironmask has set about working on custom versions of the many subset “Shaddows” bosses that never made it into production… the first being the rather sweet looking Dr Dark! Sculpted to fit the scale of the original line, the 1″ tall micro comes in Ironmask’s signature chunky  style, capturing the organic, molten feel of the original concept art perfectly… Due to be moulded and cast by Ironmask in the near future, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this is the first of many FoA customs from the highly talented mini figure artist. Stay tuned for more news soon!
