10958421_827605363961024_1744016048_n

Justin over at Hateball has revealed that he’ll have a whole slew of new products touching down online this week, including not one, but two new mini figure releases! First up, we have the debut of the “Therefore, Ghost”. A collaboration with our very own Tru:Tek, the “treasure box homage toy” has been booted from a 1.5″ tall vintage monochrome mini, featuring a revised, tri-eyed design etched onto the face. Produced in a bright white keshi-style rubber, the little guy will be touching down in the Hateball store right here at some point on Friday, February 13th for an undisclosed sum… Joining the ghost, Justin will also have a limited recast of his collaboration with Healeymade, “Revisionist: Unmuscle”. Featuring a total of 5 different kit-bashed and bootlegged M.U.S.C.L.E figures, each set has been cast in a solid red resin with one blue chase. Pricing on these guys is also still to be confirmed, so be sure to head over to the Hateball site here and sign up to the newsletter for more details later in the week…

Jonathan over at Dubose Art will soon be making a return to the bootleg scene with his latest custom keshi creation, the awesome Tripodius! A glorious mix of kit-bashed vintage M.U.S.C.L.E mini figures, the 3-armed feline gladiator features a reduced version of Jonathan’s originally sculpted Cat Fighter head, coming complete with a super-tiny bell attached around its neck. Due to be making an appearance in a keshi-style rubber at some point in the near future, we suggest keeping a close eye on the Dubose IG feed here for release details soon…

Originally debuting at Superfestival last weekend, Gargamel have just revealed that their latest batch of keshi-style mini figures will be touching down in the Mitari store at 9pm Japan time today! Featuring 5 designs from the first 2 rounds alongside 5 all-new sculpts (including a rather awesome SS helmeted Zag!), the 2″ kinkeshi inspired figures have been cast up in a mix of black and clear green resin for the release. Going on sale alongside the previously posted figures from the NNWA, pricing and edition size is still to be confirmed…

NOTE// International orders can be placed by using the “Contact” tab in the Mitari store.


MAN-E-NEWS// The Death-Match Tiger Burn Laser Beast from Eric Nilla…

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 14.21.40

After a brief hiatus from the mini figure scene, it would appear that Eric Nilla will be returning with an all-new keshi custom, the Death-Match Tiger Burn Laser Beast! Kitbashed from a vintage ‘Tiger’ Laser Beast, the figure has been produced in a similar style to the super-rare BB Gumball figures, coming with a solid white cast rubber body and red disc insert. The real pull has got to be those additional limbs though- taken from Jesse Destasio’s Tankhead figure, we’re left wondering if this will remain a one-off or become an official collab at some point… Here’s keeping our fingers crossed it’s the later! Keep track of the artist’s dedicated blog right here for more details soon.

MAN-E-NEWS// The Neca-style Utrom custom keshi from Plastic Playhouse x Eric Nilla…

Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 10.22.36

Originally revealed here a few weeks back, Plastic Playhouse‘s Utrom (Krang) keshi is due for an official release soon! Sculpted to fit alongside Neca’s TMNT figures, a staple for the prolific customiser, the first batch have been cast in a flesh-tone rubber, coming with paint accents from the artist himself. News on the release of these is still pretty thin on the ground at the moment, but the figures’ producer, Eric Nilla, has confirmed that he will be unleashing his very own exclusive colourway sometime in late October/early November. Interested in having your say as to the choice of colour? Well then you’ll be glad to know that Eric is taking suggestions directly through his IG feed here. Stay tuned for release specifics soon!
