It’s been a while since we last heard anything from the highly talented Jack’s Attic, so it came with great pleasure this weekend to find that they’re finally gearing up for their latest release, the awesome “8Bit13” bootleg resin figure! A variant of Jack’s previously release “Kill People” peg figure, the awesome mini Jason has been revived in a mix of purple and blue resin as a nod to 1989’s infamous Friday 13th videogame. Coming packed on vintage, repurposed Nintendo cartridges complete with authentic custom game labels and hang tags ready for display, the limited run of just 20 figures will be touching down in the Jack’s Attic store this coming Saturday, April 25th at Noon Eastern time for just $30 each plus shipping. To sweeten the deal even further, Jack will be including a scratch-off trading card with every order that gives purchasers the opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind “Bloody Gold” variant figure- what more could you want?!
“Intelligent slugs are not new to Earth. They’re just small enough for us to not know about them. From the telekinetic deep sea nudibranch elders, to the hard-mantled terrestrial gastropod mollusc, their secrets are finally revealed – forcing them out into the open to live alongside, or battle mankind!!”
Kicking 2015 off with a bang, Lee Burbridge over at Bigmantoys has revealed an all-new line of mini figures… The Day of the Slug! Heavily inspired by Tim Clarke’s Mini Boglins, the 1″-1.5″ tall figures have been designed and sculpted by Lee, with each mutated mollusc based on either a horror theme or direct film parody. Set to be released across 4 super-collectible waves of 4 figures a year – that’s a total of 16 in 2015!) – the first will feature the pictured Mind Control Mage, Cpt. Salty, Jay Slug and Mantle in a selection of hand cast resin and rubber finishes. Due to make their debut on the Bigmantoys store on Monday, January 5th, DotS: Wave 1 will be available through 2 different buying options; singularly for $10, or just $30 for the “Value” 4 pack; Bigmantoys will also be offering up super-glossy trading cards of each character for an additional $1 per figure… Stay tuned for news of the next wave over the coming months!
