10950362_1621213328101809_1801053847_n

It’s been a little while since we last featured the incredible talents of mini figure sculptor NolanJP, so it came with great pleasure over the weekend to find he’s back in the game with his latest piece, a stunning GPK-inspired skull! Coming in at around 0.75″ – a little over half the size of Nolan’s Split Kit micro – the meticulously crafted piece will be winging it’s way over to our very own Tru:Tek for a limited run of rubber key chains in the near future. Stay tuned for more progress over the next couple of weeks, and be sure to keep a lookout for details of the next run of Nolan’s Iceclops figure (residing in the back of the shot!) very soon…

Aaron Moreno aka Retroband has just revealed that the latest member of the hugely popular GPK-inspired Retroband Kids series – Creepy Kevin – will be making his debut very soon! Pictured here receiving his silicone bath ahead of resin production, the 2″ figure follows a similar cult-horror theme as the previous 3 releases, this time around parodying the classic Night of the Creeps to hilarious effect. Due to come hand cast and painted by the artist, we suspect that the little guy will be presented in a similar way as before, coming mounted on a Garbage Pail Kid style trading card with blister bubble. News on the release is still thin on the ground at the moment, but you can guarantee that the second we hear anything, you guys will be the first in the know…

Teased here as a finished wax proto earlier in the month, Retroband‘s “Slimy Sean” mini figure has finally been revealed in full! The second instalment in the artist’s GPK-inspired “Retroband Kids” series, the 2″ figure follows a similar cult-horror theme as the first release, Toxic Timmy, this time around parodying Return of the Living Dead’s infamous Tarman to hilarious effect. Hand cast and painted by the artist, Sean comes packed on a GPK-style blistered trading card, complete with art from Retroband on the front, plus a 4 panel backstory from Worthy Enemies on the back. Due to touch down at the Retroband/Worthy Enemies Mondo Con booth (#T12) this weekend, full release details as still to be confirmed, although judging by the first release these are likely to be limited to 50, priced at $45 each…

With the first wave of Scary Larrys finally making their way into collectors homes (sorry for the wait guys!), we can now reveal that NolanJP‘s second movie themed GPK-style figure “Iceclops” will be heading into production very soon! Paying tribute to Ray Harryhausen’s iconic beast in 1958′s The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, the ingenious mash-up of monster and doll stands at around the same height as Larry at 2.5″, coming complete with, in true GPK style, an icecream cone horn and mace. Due to be cast up by Tru:Tek over at the Disart ToyLabs, expect a similar array of colour choices as Larry (including the standard 4 Cheap Toy tones!) as well as an all-new “multi-region” VHS box-style packaging. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks…

Sticking with the Garbage Pail Kid theme today, NolanJP has revealed yet another awesome sculpt in the works inspired by the gross-out trading card series, the mighty Cyclops! Paying tribute to Ray Harryhausen’s iconic beast in 1958’s The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, the ingenious mash-up of monster and doll is already coming together nicely- with just the ice cream cone horn and club left to seal the deal! Coming in at around the same scale as the previously revealed Scary Larry (more on him later in the week), the 2.5″ figure should hopefully be seeing a release in rubber over the next couple of months. Keep track of the artist’s IG feed here for more updates soon…
