As mentioned in our Ray Skull coverage last week, Nama Niku is the latest out of the blocks with his H.U.S.T.L.E Wave 1 Artist Proofs, proudly presenting the long awaited ‘Kinkeshi Flesh’ Mekamess! Undeniably one of the most popular designs from the first batch of figures, the MechaGodzilla kit-bash has been cast up in the original, lighter kinkeshi flesh colour by our very own Tru:Tek using a flexible urethane rubber (check out a comparison shot here). Limited to just 5 pieces, 4 of which have already been taken for, the remaining figure is now available through board auction over at LRG. Donated by Nama Niku to help fund a new hard drive for the popular mini figure forum, interested parties can review and post their bid right here– be sure to head over soon though, bidding finishes at 6pm Pacific time this Sunday, May 5th!
Whilst we fully revealed UME Toys‘ NYCC skulls last week (find out more here), we’ve decided to take a another look at a couple of the designs that will be available come October time… First up, the absolutely gorgeous Copper Skull has been meticulously finished in a rich metallic spray, coming with subtle turquoise copper-oxide traces around the teeth, eyes and nose. Fastly becoming the “second” UME colourway, the copper tones suit the skull’s minimalist nature to tee, giving a real sense of weight and presence to an already amazing sculpt… Easily our favourite of the bunch so far, the zombie inspired Brains Skull was actually created from a cast that went wrong! Not wanting to waste the vast lump of resin, Rich ingeniously set to work in sculpting brains over the top to create the jaw dropping piece you see above. Painted in a mixture of bone and flesh tones, Rich has added subtle washes to create the signature weathered UME look… fingers crossed it wont just be a one-off!
Stay locked on the UME blog for more reveals as we get closer to NYCC, and be sure to keep an ear to the ground for a VERY special related announcement soon…
