MAN-E-NEWS// The R.B.S. IV “open helmet” version from Dust…

After nearly a month since the initial work-in-progress production shots (find out more here), German artist Dust is proud to present the Teddy R.B.S.IV “open helmet” version in all its painted glory! Standing at 2.75″ and coming with articulated joints, the stunning little figure has been painted in Dust’s signature military greens, featuring meticulous weathering, spray splatter and even a minute skull insignia on the chest! No news on an exact release date as of yet, so be sure to keep checking the Dust blog for further updates next week…


MAN-E-NEWS// Custom “Gumball” Battle Beast: Killer Carp from Eric Nilla…

Even with a whole host of other mini figure projects on the go, master caster Eric Nilla has managed to find time to squeeze in the second addition to his on-going custom “Gumball” Battle Beasts series, the Killer Carp! Taking the hard plastic originals of the western Battle Beasts we all know and love, Eric has been re-casting the mini figures in a flexible rubber to resemble the original capsule (Gashapon) line from the early 80’s known as Gumball Battle Beasts… Unfortunately it appears that Killer Carp has already sold out, so to be in with a chance of grabbing the next in the series, Triple Threat Snake, be sure to keep track of the dedicated Little Rubber Guys thread for further developments…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Teddy R.B.S.IV Open Helmet Edition from Dust…

After 5 years since their last appearance, Dust proudly presents the latest series of Teddy R.B.S.IV’s, the Open Helmet Edition! As with the previous release, the fully articulated resin is due to come in a limited edition of 10, each hand cast, painted and weathered by Dust himself. Giving us a glimpse of the character underneath the armour suit, it would appear that Dust is exploring the cuter side of the art toy spectrum with this release (similar to his recent Dudebox work), so it’ll be interesting to see the paint application on these guys once they’re finally revealed… No news on pricing or release dates, so be sure to stay locked for further developments soon…

Limited to just 10 pieces, the Night Terror Dunnys are available to pre-order from the Matt A* Customs store now for just $60 plus shipping. Stay tuned for more news on the full Night Terror release soon…
