MAN-E-NEWS// The Galaxxor x Goodleg Toys “Tricera-Tank Lazer Saur…

Tricera-Tankright

“Shortly before a devastating meteor impact on Planet Prehis, a team of soldiers and scientists of the Lazer-Saur race were sent into space to find a place that was told to be the source of life. This fabled place was the so called “Forbidden Zone”, palladium of the Prima Materia, which was protected by an ancient ape civilization known as the Holo Apes. The Lazer-Saurs had to construct the ultimate weapon to stand against an almost invincible force. They created the Tricera-Tanks: powerful, fully robotic dino warriors! The Tricera-Tanks are the Lazer-Saurs last hope to defeat the Holo Apes, gather the essence of life, return to their home planet, and to save Prehis from its fate…”

Swiftly following our “Infinition” coverage last week, Ben Spencer of Galaxxor fame has unveiled yet another figure that’ll be up for grabs this week, teaming up with the fine chaps over at Goodleg Toys for the release of the latest Lazer Saur, Tricera-Tank! Ben kindly explains a little about the project… “The term “evil genius” gets thrown around an awful lot, these days. It most certainly applies, however, to my good friends in Germany, those maniacs from Goodleg Toys. Luke and Pablo’s resin creations run the gamut from pop art pieces to proper action figures, from absurdly hilarious to grotesquely badass.More often than not, their highly sought after chunks of resin are a bit of all of the above. Following our Grape-Apes collab, Luke and I were really excited about following it up with something even more involved. I’ve been a long time fan of Goodleg’s War On Prehis property, a line full of zombie cyborgs and bionic dinosaurs, all done in the classic 5.5″ scale. So, the idea came about to maybe try my hand at adding a figure to that extended universe. Goodleg and Kaiju Lab‘s Lazer Saurs were a subline of Prehis that I always particularly dug, and, after much contemplation, the concept of a gigantic, hulking, clockwork Triceratops tank man seemed like the the only right thing to do…Working in another universe, with an aesthetic that is decidedly different from the Galaxxorverse was really creatively inspirational, because it forced me to think about some of the iconic design elements that I play with, and then turn them on their ear. Prehis has a far more gritty and detailed visual than I typically work with, and that pushed me a bit out of my comfort zone. I allowed myself to mash together bits of various iconic figures, along with a bit of sculpting, and come up with a Frankenstein of a beast, which, chile working on it, I often referred to as “An Excercise in Absurdity”. I’m extremely pleased with the resulting figure, one which I feel straddles the line between my aesthetic and Goodleg’s aesthetic.” Mashed-up and re-sculpted by Ben, produced in resin by Goodleg Toys and then handed back over to be hand painted in a mix of grey, black, red and gold, the hulking 5.5″ Tricera-Tank has been limited to an edition of just 5 pieces for this initial run. Packed with 2 War on Prehis comics and a high quality 8″x10″ print with art from JB Roe, the figure will be up for grabs in the Galaxxor store today (2/6) at Noon CDT for just $95 plus shipping…

MAN-E-NEWS// Galaxxor’s Space God Infinition for Clutter’s InAction Figure 3 Show…

infinitonright

Yep, yet more from Clutter‘s upcoming InAction Figure 3 Show today, as Ben Spencer of Galaxxor fame proudly presents his entry, Space God Infinition! Ben kindly explains a little about the figure’s background- “From the crystalline planet at the center of the Galaxxorverse, Alpha Supremis, comes Infiniton, one of the cosmic Seven Space Gods! Anyone who’s been playing along at home knows that The Seven Space Gods are the real movers and shakers of the Galaxxorverse, so it’s super cool to have one of them realized in resin. I was honored to have the opportunity to participate in Clutter’s Inaction Figures 3 group show this year and wanted to come up with something really special to contribute. Like most people my age, I was a huge fan of Transformers as a kid, and, for some reason Ultra Magnus’s head really spoke to me (not literally. I’m not that crazy). Taking into account that the overall theme for Clutter’s Inaction Figures shows is toys form the 70’s-90’s, I jumped at the chance to mash up that iconic head with my very own Galaxxor figure. I always envisioned The Seven Space Gods as being very Kirbyesque in appearance, and, maybe I’ve been reading too much of Tom Scioli’s Transformers vs. GI Joe, but Ultra Magnus’s noggin really seemed to fit the bill.”  Featuring the standard Galaxxor buck with the aforementioned Ultrus Magnus head, the articulated 5.5″ figure was produced by Marty “The Godbeast” Hansen and True Cast Studio, coming hand painted by Ben in a minimal mix of purple and black with neon green inserts. Limited to an edition of just 3 pieces, Space God Infiniton has been priced at just $95…

MAN-E-NEWS// The Barbalien Warrior and Magus 2 Pack from Galaxxor x Extra-Truckestrial…

BarbalienMagusLeft

Two of the resin action figure scene’s heavyweights – Ben Spencer of Galaxxor and Extra-Truckestrial Customs – have joined forces for their first collaborative release, the Barbalien Warrior and Magus 2 Pack! Created in the same vein as Galaxxor’s previous Cyborg Space Barbarians and Grape-Apes, the 5.5″ Barbalien features the body from a vintage MOTU buck ingeniously coupled with an in-scale Alien head. Recast in resin by Extra-Truckestrial, the figure was then treated to Galaxxor’s black-on-neon paint app complete with removable skull trophy necklace. Joined by one of ET’s infamous bootleg budhas (Magus) – this time around sporting a reduced Alien head, clear acrylic display and matching paint app – the pair have been limited to just 5 sets this time around, coming in at $85 each plus shipping. Look out for the duo in the Galaxxor store this coming Monday, November 10th at Noon CDT…

It’s been a while since we last heard anything from the Galaxxorverse, and with good cause, as creator Ben Spencer has been busy preparing one hell of a release! First up, we have the debut of the Megakeshi Galaxxor… With the help of The Godbeast and the rest of the True Cast Studio, Ben has been able to take the highly popular 5.5″ to the next level in terms of playability, with the figure now coming cast in a flexible keshi-style rubber with 3 points of articulation and 3 interchangeable heads (including one by the mighty Matt Doughty!). Initially going on sale as a limited batch of one-off prototypes, the Megakeshi will be touching down in the Galaxxor store on Tuesday, November 19th at Noon CST, priced at $90 each… Joining the Deka-sized piece, Ben will also be unleashing a number of Mini Galaxxor’s too! Hand sculpt and cast by The Godbeast based on Ben’s design, the Kinnikuman scaled figures will be available in a number of one-off swirled and solid resins. Priced at just $17 each, expect these to touch down in-store alongside the Megakeshi next week…
