MAN-E-NEWS// The Instagram Toy resin samples from JC Rivera x Shinbone Creative x SmallAngryMonster…

Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 14.04.35

It’s been coming up for 10 months since we last heard anything on the infamous “On Your Desk” Instagram Toy, but far from dead and buried, the awesome figure has finally seen the light of day as a limited batch of ‘NFS’ samples! Originally designed and sculpted by JC Rivera, with digital retooling from Shinbone Creative‘s Scott Wetterschneider, the little guy, currently named “Iggy”, has been hand cast in resin with paint duties handed over to the more than capable hands of SmallAngryMonster. Presumably created with a view to producing a full vinyl run soon, we’ll keep you guys up to date with any news as soon as we hear anything…


MAN-E-NEWS// “On Your Desk” Instagram character from JC Rivera x Shinbone Creative…

Since Shinbone Creative took over production of JC Rivera‘s Instagram character a while back (find out more here) news on it’s release has been scarce, so it came with great pleasure yesterday to find that along with a name change, the figure has been given it’s first ‘real-world’ reveal! Retitled as “On Your Desk” (possibly due to licensing problems), the above pic features the figure in raw unpainted form… Still no firm information on pricing or release dates, so be sure to keep checking the Shinbone Creative twitter feed for further updates…


MAN-E-NEWS// Trimentional Viewer teasers from Cris Rose…

Keep an eye on your robot with your personal Trimentional Viewer”

Anyone following the newly opened Cris Rose Instagram account will have noticed several interesting photos from his latest project, the Trimensional Viewers! Little is known about the project yet, but as you can garner from the above shots, the release is set to feature a scaled down version of Cris’ popular Sprog bots (around 2/3 the size), housed in a beautiful clear dome and suitably weathered base. No news as of yet with regards to pricing or edition size, but expect these wonderful resin creations to hit the Cris Rose store at some point this week.

Alongside the Trimensional teasers, Cris has also revealed several tentative images under the title “Dreams in Focus”. Combining his passion for both photography and customisation, it appears that he is working on a custom built vintage camera! Clearly displaying the distinctive Cris Rose crown and the number 12 in roman numerals, we can but wonder what this awesome project will entail. Stay tuned for more news on both the Trimensional Viewers and “Dreams in Focus” as soon as it hits…


MAN-E-NEWS// ‘InstaCharacter’ Instagram figure from JC Rivera…

Social media, pop culture and art toys collide in the latest concept sculpt from JC Rivera, the ‘InstaCharacter’. Taking the logo from everybody’s  favourite photo sharing app, Instagram, Rivera originally designed the figure way back last year, resting dormant until now… Recently receiving full backing from the app’s owners, Rivera has since gone on to make a clay prototype which has then been digitally re-sculpted by Scott Wetterschneider. The only problem with the project thus far is that Rivera is still to find a company  that will fund a production run of these awesome little guys. It’s hard to understand why anyone wouldn’t jump at the chance at producing these potentially lucrative figures, so we’re guessing it’ll be just a matter of time. Stay tuned in the coming months for more info, and in the mean time, head over to the JC Rivera site to check out his amazing custom and original work…
