MAN-E-NEWS// The custom Angel Abby x Blackseed “Marshmallow Uncle” sofubi from Joe Whiteford…

11856827_1873524389540435_1753065733_n

We’ve got a bit of a double post here, as not only can we (partially!) reveal the latest collaborative sofubi from Angel Abby and Blackseed – Marshmallow Uncle – but we can also share the very first custom of the toy from none other than Joe Whiteford! Teased in a recent article with FACE magazine (pictured below), the jointly created piece has been heavily inspired by Ghostbusters’ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, featuring a similar “bubble” design, albeit with a chest-busting alien thrown in for good measure… Making it’s debut as part of a group exhibition at Angel Abby’s Hong Kong-based store soon – hence the amazing Joe Whiteford custom you see above – the figure is due to touch down in 3 different colorways; “OG” white, blue and green, unpainted clear and GID, coming in at $700HK ($90) each. Look out for more details on both the event and figure over the coming weeks…

Toy artist Joe Whiteford is proud to reveal that his hugely popular “Grizzle” resin action figure is set to return this week for an all-new micro run! A crazy infusion of Weirdballs, He-Man and cult horror, the gruesome beast has been kit-bashed and intensively re-sculpted from a number of vintage action figures, coming cast in resin and finished in the artist’s unmistakeable mix of earthy colours, layered washes and a ton of fake fur. Limited to an edition of just 4 this time around, each with it’s own unique finish (long haired variants pictured above), the figures are set to come packed with 2 custom collector cards that pay a loving tribute to both Weirdballs and MOTU. Touching down in Joe’s store at some point this Friday, May 22nd, pricing for the beasts is still to be confirmed…

The guys over at apparel brand Scumbags & Superstars have teamed up with paint master Joe Whiteford for a special micro-run of custom Skull Chiefs!
