MAN-E-NEWS// The GPK ‘Adam Bomb’ custom Munny from HamFX…

TylerHamCustomGPK

Again, not a platform we usually feature here on Man-E-Toys, this recently posted Garbage Pail Kid inspired Munny custom from HamFX was just simply to cool to ignore… Created for the last Kidrobot live-painting event in San Francisco, the hilarious piece was inspired by arguably GPK’s most iconic character, Adam Bomb, featuring the same exploding cranium and mushroom cloud- but now in eye popping 3D! Coloured in a faithful selection of vivid tones, the paint app, although slightly rough, does a wonderful job in replicating the painterly strokes of the original trading cards- Impressive, especially when you consider this piece was created live! Now if only Kidrobot would take heed and get to work on an official series…

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Dante’s Inferno” custom Dunny from JC Rivera…

It’s been a while since we last featured any Dunnys at Man-E-Toys, but on catching wind of JC Rivera‘s stunning “Someone’s Inferno” yesterday, we knew we couldn’t pass the little guy up! More art-piece than custom, the beautiful figure has been inspired by computer game “Dante’s Inferno”, which was in turn inspired by the epic 14th century poem, Devine Comedy. Depicting a hellish world full of skulls, lost souls, and of course, Beelzebub himself, the harrowing scene has been painted in Rivera’s signature soft-focus style with a limited palette of browns and yellows… Unfortunately (for us!), Someone’s Inferno was a privately commissioned by a KR Board member, so if you’re interested in acquiring a similar piece, your best bet is to head over to Rivera’s site here with any enquiries.


MAN-E-NEWS// WIP custom Munny and Ammonaito from Adam Pratt…

Adam Pratt kindly shares details of his latest two work-in-progress projects, the Mechavirus x Halfbad Ammonaitos and the HateMale custom Munny… One of our favourite resin pieces to emerge from the past year, we were delighted to hear that Adam had finally settled down to work on Todd Robertson’s Ammonaitos, and as you can see from the early shots, he’s doing them every bit of justice they deserve! Initially working on a series of four, two will be customised in the funghi ridden style seen above, whilst the last pair will be grafted together to form the ram-shaped objet d’art piece seen bottom left. These are due to be landing in the Mechavirus store soon, so be sure to stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks…

Any followers of Adam on Instagram would have noticed this guy pop up a few times over the past couple of months… well the stomach churning “Chowderhead” custom Munny is finally nearing completion! Originally created by giving the poor Munny a resin bath and building up various layers of plumber’s spackle to create the monstrosity you see before you. Paint application is due to begin today, so along with the addition of a slime encrusted spoon, plus REAL dried meal worms, this is shaping up to be Adam’s grossest piece yet… Created for the New England clothing label called HateMale, the custom will be released alongside their latest Chowderhead tee… expect both to touch down at some point in October…

Priced at a very reasonable £65 plus shipping, Sloblife 2 will be landing in the Hoakser store here at some point today.
