Inspired by the classic Battle Beast mini figures, these bang-up-to-date renditions stand at just under 2.5″ each, coming complete with 5 points of articulation. Kicking proceeding off with 2 different designs, Rhino and Scorpion, the pair are due to be offered up with 4 different colorways up for grabs; a Metallic Black/Grey painted version for $7, plus unpainted Flesh, Gold and Metallic Black for just $4 each. Look out for the little guys in the LRG store at somepoint this Saturday, November 15th…
Prolific mini figure painter Ersico tackles yet another popular custom keshi with ease… presenting Silent Hill’s Pyramid Head! Kit-bashed/re-sculpted by Leviathan and cast by Eric Nilla in a super-flexible rubber, the stunning mini figure has been painted in an ultra-realistic mix of flesh tones, metallics and leathery browns, finished with some gruesome crimson splatters and Ersico’s signature detailing hugging washes and highlights. Created for a private commission, we suggest heading over to Ersico’s dedicated LRG thread to enquire about a similar piece… Alternatively, you can hit up his store right here to check out what’s currently available!
It’s been just over 4 months since we originally featured the awesome Silent Hill inspired custom M.U.S.C.L.E from Leviathan, but with a little help of none other than Eric Nilla, the ominous Pyramid Head is finally seeing the light of day! Based on the cult videogame/film’s reoccurring monster of the same name, the figure has been ingeniously kit-bashed using M.U.S.L.E’s 104 and 107, coming with additional ”stitched leather” apron and sword sculpted in epoxy. Produced in an authentic keshi style rubber, the little guy will be available in the Nilla store soon in a number of different colours including the all-important muscle flesh!
Hot off the heals of the recent Baxter Stockman custom Glyos posted earlier in the week, Ersico comes with yet another show-stopping piece… the Battle Cat inspired Laser Beast! Taking popular ‘Tiger Burn’ from the iconic 80’s toy line, Ersico has set about faithfully replicating the colours of He-Man’s trusty stead, using a mixture of dark orange, green and yellow acrylics finished off with a hi-gloss clear coat. Unfortunately we have no news as to whether this little guy is available to purchase, so we suggest interested parties should hit Ersico up through his expansive LRG feed here with any enquiries…
The highly talented Plastic Playhouse delves into 90’s pop culture once more as he proudly presents his latest M.U.S.C.L.E custom… an ode to Mortal Kombat’s Goro! Using the four armed ‘Ashuraman No Sensei’ figure, PP has painted him up in the final boss’ familiar orange tone, complete with subtle washes, meticulous highlights and even a newly sculpted pony tail! Currently available to purchase through PP’s dedicated LRG thread here, we suggest heading over pretty quick if you’re interested- he most definitely wont be around for long!
An absolute powerhouse in the mini figure scene right now, LRG forum member Clawfreak has garnered a huge amount of interest through his diverse range of awesome Glyos, OMFG and M.U.S.C.L.E customs, with the recently revealed ‘Sucklavors’ proving to be 2 of his most accomplished pieces yet… Featuring the highly popular Glyos Armorvor body and Sucklord designed head, both figures have received some subtle original sculpting with the addition of skull chest pieces, each coming with a beautiful weathered finish with corresponding neon blue and green accents. Priced at just $42 plus shipping, the first 2 Sucklavors have unfortunately long since sold out- we wait with baited breath for a restock soon!
LRG forum member Leviathan comes with his latest custom bootleg M.U.S.C.L.E figure, the menacing Pyramid Head… Based on cult videogame/film Silent Hill’s reoccurring monster of the same name, the figure has been ingeniously kit-bashed using M.U.S.L.E’s 104 and 107, coming with additional “stitched leather” apron and sword sculpted in epoxy. Very near to completion, Leviathan is currently looking for someone to cast the little guy up in rubber- if you fancy taking him on, head over to the dedicated LRG thread here with any enquiries… We urge you to do it quick though, we’re dying to add this one to our collection!
