MAN-E-NEWS// Scumbags and Superstars’ “Bart Spray” figure prototype revealed…

Riding on the success of their awesome bootleg “Bart Spray” enamel pin (pictured below), the guys over at apparel brand Scumbags and Superstars have revealed that they’ll be following up the release with a fully-fledged resin toy rendition! Originally sculpted by an undisclosed artist, the figure has been realised in the same scale as the original Playmates Simpsons line, coming in at around 3.5” tall and featuring articulation in the neck and shoulders. Due to be produced in resin with a paint scheme that perfectly matches the pin’s yellow, black and white, the Bart Spray figure is set to receive a super-limited, blister carded release in the very near future.

Mad genius Matias over at Kalaka Toys has just revealed his first toy of 2015, E.M.E: The Evil MOTU Eater! Featuring a whole slew of kit-bashed MOTU parts – namely the heads of the series’ most memorable heroes and foes – the hulking figure features an originally sculpted, kaiju-style body, loosely taking on the appearance of the MIMP Jotun Troll. Initially due to be cast in resin for a limited release on the Kalaka store, Matias is currently looking into soft vinyl production for the figure, so fingers crossed that with a few modifications the figure makes it into sofubi later on in the year. Keep track of the Kalaka Toys Instagram feed here for news on that first resin release soon…
