MAN-E-NEWS// The Vicar Apparitions from David Healey x MPH…

myplasticheart is proud to announce the latest exclusive release in the Healeymade line of resin figures, the Vicar “Apparition” edition! A mash-up of action figures including one of the baddest villains in outer space (can you guess who it is?), the stunning figure comes locked, loaded, and ready for action. Cast in a ghostly pale blue/green resin this time around, a few violet glow-in-the-dark chase variants have also been thrown in for good measure… Priced at just $64.99 plus shipping, the Vicar Apparitions will be landing on the myplasticheart store in super-limited quantities this Thursday (June 14th) at an undisclosed time. Be sure to get in quick… as with all of Healeymade’s MPH exclusives, the Vicar Apparitions wont be around for long…


MAN-E-NEWS// “The Host” custom Munny from Adam Pratt…

Adam Pratt kindly shares with us his latest project, “The Host” custom 4″ Munny! Whilst an unusual choice of platform for the prolific mini figure customiser, Adam has taken it in his stride, creating a beautifully over the top piece that has the Halfbad stamp all over it… Featuring a poor green fellow being consumed from within by an ugly tentacled beast, the custom’s level of detail is truly astounding; from the various tentacles and individual suckers jutting out from the host’s body (part kit-bashed from a Fisher Price toy!), through to the huge bug-eyes and purple warts, Adam has managed to achieve the same fine finish that has made his mini figure work so popular… No news on pricing at the moment, so your best bet is to hit Adam up directly at halfbadtoyz@gmail.com with any enquiries…


MAN-E-NEWS// The BURNY custom Kracka from Hoakser…

Hot off the heals of “Sloblife” earlier this week (find out more here), UK based graffiti artist Hoakser continues his return to form with the magnificent “BURNY” custom Kracka! Created for Andy Kelly’s (@zombiekel) upcoming “Dragons” custom show at the Sho Gallery, BURNY has been made using a mixture of air-dry clay sculpting and kit-bashing, with the wings coming from an old Vulture Man figure that have been melted into shape. Hoakser’s choice of colours are what really make this piece stand out though, with the distinctive muted palette of purples and oranges forcing a second look every time… Interested in seeing how this guy was made? Then check out a full production vid Hoakser put together here. Expect more “Dragons” news soon…


MAN-E-NEWS// The visible skeleton Stormtrooper LEGO bootleg from 2bitHACK…

Sitting alongside the recently revealed “Smiley Copper” action figure (check it out here), 2bitHACK has been hard at work on yet another project, the as yet untitled “visible skeleton LEGO Stormtrooper” bootleg! Revealing an initial kit-bash test pull last week featuring a de-armed, mini-legged LEGO Stormtrooper with the strap-line “Test pull… The nontest pulls will be boneshakingly cool…”, 2bitHACK has since revealed that the figure is to be cast over the top of a LEGO skeleton! As you can see from the image above, the awesome figure is due to be cast in clear pink, revealing the skeleton’s design beneath. No news as to whether this will be a full bootleg, or a custom LEGO (using individual skeleton LEGOs as pictured), so stay tuned for further developments soon…

International collectors will be glad to know that 2bitHACK is now offering cheaper flat rate shipping on ALL products stocked in his store (we just picked up a Mini-SUCKaws!), head over and take a look…


MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Clunk’ robo Foomi custom from Rich UME…

Previewed here last week, Richard Page of UME Toys is proud to reveal his latest custom creation, the staggering robo Foomi ‘Clunk’! Featuring a mixture of original sculpting, kit-bashing and a meticulously weathered paint job, the Gundam inspired piece is currently available to purchase directly from Rich at umetoys@googlemail.com. No news yet with regards to pricing, so be sure to hit Rich up quick because Clunk wont be hanging around for long…


MAN-E-NEWS// Adam Pratt’s ‘Thomas the Rage Engine’ for the Candy-Coated Custom Show…

Stepping up his custom game once again, Adam Pratt shares with us his entry for the upcoming Candy-Coated Custom Show (find out more here)- the awe-inspiring ‘Thomas the Rage Engine’! Featuring the iconic British steam train kit-bashed with a Dust Walker amongst a host of other pieces, the beautifully finished figure comes with a stunning paint job faithful to both sources; marrying the primary blues and reds of Thomas with the gritty, weathered aesthetic of DUST. Available to purchase at the Tenacious Toys x London Candy Co. show (opening April 21st) for an undisclosed price, the Fat Conductor’s worst nightmare will be making an appearance alongside works from the likes of  Jon Malmstedt, Rsin, JC Rivera, Cris Rose and Richard Page. Be sure to head over to the Tenacious Toys blog for up to date information on the event in the coming weeks…

MAN-E-NEWS// The new Gundam Graff Bombers from Hoakser…

Hot off the heals of last week’s drop (find out more here), UK based graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to present 2 new awesome additions to the Gundam Graff Bombers series. Slightly smaller, and a little less articulated than the previous release (pictured centre), these 2 monster robo graff artists more than make up for any shortcomings in their sheer sense of style and finesse.

Featuring towering back pieces, huge wings, and an intimidating choice of firepower, the 2 burnt and rusted bots stand at around 20cm tall from spike to base. Priced at just £59.99 each plus shipping, the Gundam Graff Bombers are available alongside their bigger brother  from Hoakser’s eBay store now. Click through to the Hoakser blog for more information…
