Screen Shot 2013-04-25 at 13.32.20

He’s been a long time in coming, but Warlords of Wor‘s follow-up to the mighty Bog-Nar is finally upon us… presenting Clawbber! Kit-bashed and intensely re-sculpted from a number of different vintage action figures by ManOrMonster? Studios‘ Brandon Michael Barker, the beautiful piece has once again been cast in resin with the now standard WoW compatible neo-mag joints- this time around featuring a staggering 10 points of articulation! Painted in a wonderfully camp mix of pink, purple and gold, Clawbber will be up for grabs via the Nerd City booth alongside the long awaited Warlords of Wor comic this weekend, with further stock heading to the the MoM? store soon…

Wasting no time resting on their laurels after the hugely successful MOTUMU debut last month (get the full lowdown here), ManOrMonster? Studios come with their latest Warlord’s of Wor figure, the mighty Clawbber! Originally revealed in a mini-comic teaser way back in December (pictured), the apparent adversary of Bog-Nar has been created using a mixture of kitbashed 5.5″ action figure parts and original sculpting. Cast in resin by ManOrMonster?’s Brandon Michael Barker, it appears that the piece will once again feature a staggering total of 11 articulated neo-mag parts, each 100% compatible and interchangeable with all ManOrMonster? lines… No news on availability or pricing as of yet, so be sure to keep checking the Warlord’s of Wor blog here for more information soon.


MAN-E-NEWS// Warlord of Wor “Bog-Nar” available for pre-order today…

Following the first official production reveal of Warlords of Wor‘s “Bog-Nar” last week (find out more here), ManOrMonster? Studios are proud to announce that the incredible action figure will finally be available to pre-order today! Coming with a staggering tally of 11 separate interchangeable parts (plus accessories), the hand cast and painted MOTU styled figure will be limited to just 30 pieces this time around, with another batch of 70 planned for late October… Joining 29 standard painted figures, one lucky collector will be getting there hands on an as-yet-unrevealed chase figure- ManOrMonster? are keeping the figure close to their chest, but word on the street suggests flocking and possibly red resin are on the menu! Priced at just $100 plus shipping (a steal for such an intricate, fully working piece!), ManOrMonster? will be dropping Bog-Nar on the new WoW store at some point today, so be sure to keep track of both Facebook and Twitter streams to be in with a chance of nabbing one from the first batch…


MAN-E-NEWS// ManOrMonster? Studios’ Warlords of Wor “Bog-Nar” revealed…

Previously posted here as an early proto, ManOrMonster? Studios are proud to present the first production reveal of their debut Warlords of Wor figure, Bog-Nar! A MOTU lovers wet dream, the incredible action figure comes with a staggering 11 fully articulated and interchangeable parts, each connected by a series of varying strength neo-magnets. Due to feature additional accessories including Bog-Nar’s original vine arm design, the first wave of 7 figures will amass a total of 77 basic parts, 11 Build-A-figure parts, and a whole mess of accessories… the possibility for customisation and creation will be limitless! Header art for Bog-Nar has already been finalised (design courtesy of Matthew Allison), so we’re guessing release info will be dropping soon. To stay track of any developments, head over to the new Warlords of Wor twitter feed here… as an incentive, new followers will be entered in to a Bog-Nar giveaway! (check the blog for details)


MAN-E-NEWS// Warlords of Wor’s “Bog-Nar” from ManOrMonster…

We previously revealed the first prototype from ManOrMonster‘s MOTU inspired Warlord’s of Wor here last week, and whilst the rough casting only gave us a small insight into the direction of the project, the newly revealed concept sketch pictured above helps shed a little more light… Entitled “Bog-Nar” the Mutant Muck Menace, the slimey green creature differs wildly from the original design, scrapping the bald featureless head and body for a far more intricate concept… Due to become the first of many figures from the Warlord’s of Wor line, the vine armed, Tekno-Shear wielding beast is set to drop sometime this September… Stay locked on the Warlord’s of Wor blog here for further developments…


MAN-E-NEWS// ManOrMonster’s “Warlords of Wor” first prototype revealed…

Following in the footsteps of Ben Spencer, Steve Seeley, Japanese Monster Bad! and Bigman, Brandon Michael Barker aka ManOrMonster has revealed details of his first MOTU inspired designer toy venture, the Warlords of Wor! Pictured here is the first prototype of what will be the first 5.5″ action figure to feature in the range… Whilst details on the project are scarce at the moment, Brandon has stated that he will be crafting a story to fit around the various characters, so hopefully we can expect a lot more in the future! Whilst the proto does seem a little rough at the moment (this is the first after all!), it does have loads of potential… and judging by the pic, this one will come fully articulated! Stay locked on the newly opened Warlords of Wor blog for further developments.

 

The backstory// Our world is a very different place ever since the Timepocalypse, although it happened so long ago there isn’t anyone alive who can remember Before.  But we have stories.  Some call them myths or fairy tales; fantasies sung softly to lull children to sleep, or whispered around campfires to frighten them.  Others have built religions, philosophical and political movements, and raised armies based on these legends.

The story of the Timepocalypse tells of a man, known only as the Traveller to most, who had the power to walk between worlds, moving backwards and forward through time and space like you or I cross the street.  Some people say he was trying to help us, others will argue he was trying to destroy us.  Either way, something… happened.  Something terribly wrong.  Our Elders, our scientists, seers and sorcerers all agree that in the moment the Traveller disappeared, the All of time and space collapsed in on itself.  Where once these things were linear, planar, confined to dimensions we could comprehend, now they were fluid, unpredictable… and terrible.  Now it’s as if all of time is happening at once.  Some of it we understand from the Knowledge of Before that’s kept safe in the Great Library, but so much is still far beyond our grasp.  The world Outside is a terrifying place full of nomads, monsters and great beasts.  It’s ravaged by devastating Time Storms that rip apart everything in their path, displacing time and space in their wake.  But here in the City we’re safe from the Outside.  The most trusted and talented of our Elders work wonderful magics to keep the Barrier running that protects our City and our people from the chaos of the Outside.  And our bravest and fiercest Warlords fight to ensure our borders aren’t breached by evils from the other side.  This place is the last great City of man. It’s a place of peace and hope, of science and wonder.  This is our world.  This is Wor.
