MAN-E-NEWS// The Necrolossus mini figure from Ironhaus Productions x Unbox Industries revealed…

IMG_9939

As promised in our coverage of Tru:Tek’s Sunobite a couple of days back, we can now bring you details of the fourth and final figure to feature in Unbox Industries‘ upcoming “Strange Monsters” mini figure series… the Necrolossus from Ironhaus Productions! Standing at an oversized 2.5″ tall, the Jimmy Rommel-sculpted beast encapsulates the Ironhaus aesthetic to a tee, featuring a wonderfully dynamic pose surmounted by a swathe of pulsing muscle and sharp teeth. To be produced alongside the previously revealed Tug-O-War, Shogu-Nasty and Sunobite, the Necrolossus is due to come in a unique, keshi-like slosh cast soft vinyl, a medium we’re sure you guys are just as interested in checking out as us! With a debut release slated for as early as the end of December, you can be sure that as soon as a release for these has been confirmed, you guys will be the first in the know…

The Necrolossus backstory-

“Man’s reliance on nuclear power, ultimately, was the very dependency that would destroy everything. Humanity was notorious for it’s avarice. Every enterprise known to man employed penny-shaving tactics in business, and construction was certainly no stranger to that principle. When a construction company won a bid for a Pacific shoreline reactor, the cost-cutting practices went in effect immediately, affecting everything from materials to staffing. The job was finished before deadline and far under budget, resulting in promotions for those in charge of the project, and a hefty profit for those financially invested in it. Things were good… For a while… The cheap materials and rushed craftsmanship didn’t hold up for long, as five years later, the reactor was put to the test during a meltdown… And the reactor failed, miserably. What came next was expected, and unstoppable…

Death. On a grand scale. Radiation touched everything within a 50 mile radius, polluted the waters, and poisoned the air. The irradiated and necrotic flesh of not only the humans that died in the area, but every living thing in the area, gained a hive-like sentience and began to reconstitute itself. The aggregate monster took pieces of destroyed buildings, automobiles, trains, and whatever else it needed to create a corporeal form. The moment it learned to stand, the colossus made out of radioactive death emptied it’s lungs and nuclear effluvia filled the skies. Cable news media named it “The Necrolossus”, and he stomped towards civilization looking to feast…”
