Eric Villanueva over at 1Shot Toys is proud to reveal his latest custom resin creation, a mini figure take on mythical ape-like cryptid, the Yeti! Standing at around 2″ tall, the abominable beast was bootlegged from a rare Mexican toy, coming cast in two different UV reactive colourways for it’s initial outing; a clear blue “Cool Moon” and a clear orange “Sunrise” (not pictured), coming complete with red rub. Priced at just $10 each plus shipping, the Yetis can be found in the 1Shot Toys store right here

Featuring all 4 previously revealed designs; Alien Ghost Worm, King Crumpet, Beast Blossom and series figure head Big Rad Wolf, the unlikely bunch have been cast up in a keshi-style rubber by the Disarticulators‘ Tru:Tek, coming in super limited “preview” runs of both Flesh and the Rampage exclusive Neon Green for the event. Packed as singles with some beautiful header art by Meadow herself, any leftovers can be expected to touch down in the Rampage store at some point next week (pricing TBC)… Those looking to pick up A.M.P stateside will be glad to know that the quartet will be making an appearance at NYCC next month, with a general release planned for early November.

MAN-E-NEWS// Meadowknight’s Alien Ghost Worm, Beast Blossom, King Crumpet and Big Rad Wolf revealed in full…

Lineup 1

Teased here as near finished sculpts last week, Meadowknight is proud to reveal her latest line-up of minis in full! Due to be the first batch of figures under Meadow’s new A.M.P (Amusing Mini Paranormals) brand, the unlikely bunch consists of Big Rad Wolf (the line’s central character), Alien Ghost Worm, Beast Blossom (originally DandyLion) and our favourite, the Nickelodeon-esque King Crumpet. Making their way over the pond as we speak, our very own Tru:Tek will be in charge of rubber production for the project, with a debut of all 4 figures planned for NYCC in October. Not into rubber? Then you’ll be glad to know that 1Shot Toys will also be working on a resin batch in the near future too! Stay tuned for more details soon…


MAN-E-NEWS// Meadowknight’s Dandylion and King Crumpet mini figure sculpts revealed…

As if the previously posted Alien Ghost Worm and Big Rad Wolf weren’t enough, Meadowknight proudly presents yet another 2 mini figure sculpts to add to her ever growing army of scene dominating designs! First up we have the rather evil looking Dandylion (second from the left). Originally released as a pendant design a while back, the cenobite inspired face sculpt has been retooled as a fully fledged mini figure, complete with a thick worm-like body and petaled maine! Joining Dandylion, Meadowkinight has also revealed the near-finished King Crumpet too. Taking a leaf from Big Rad Wolf’s book in terms of aesthetic, the King has a slightly more lighthearted (if still a little sinister) approach akin to Nickelodeon’s mid 90’s classics… A huge plus in our books! Word has it that both figures, along with the revised Rad Wolf and Ghost Worm, are just about ready to hit the silicone for production- so expect to see runs from both 1Shot Toys (resin) and our very own Tru:Tek (rubber) in the very near future!

With production on the previously featured Big Rad Wolf hitting a few delays, Meadowknight has found the time to complete yet another awesome mini figure sculpt… presenting the Alien Ghost Worm! Inspired by an unusual mix of Ghostbuster toys and Glo Worms, the creepy-yet-cute little guy stands at around 2″ tall and 1.5″ long. Due to come cast by none other than 1Shot Toys‘ Eric Villanueva in a multitude of resin colourways (with maybe even a few rubber variants from Tru:Tek to boot!), expect full release details soon. In the meantime, you can check out Meadowknight’s work, past, present and future, over at her dedicated October Toys thread here

Known for her intricately detailed pendants and resin sculptures, Meadowknight has (luckily for us!) decided to concentrate her efforts on the mini figure scene, with her latest effort, the awesome Big Rad Wolf, now awaiting production! Originally created as an entry for OMFG Series 5, the beautifully sculpted keshi-scale figure is now due to come cast in resin by none other than Eric Villanueva of 1Shot Toys. With a number of different versions planned including hand paints and GID’s, Big Rad Wolf should be hitting Meadowknight’s store for around $20-$35 in the near future. Keep track of the dedicated October Toys thread here for all the latest developments…
