MAN-E-NEWS// New figures in the Healeymade store today…

11191019_1583238791957484_536795329_n

David Healey aka Healeymade has just revealed that he’ll be releasing 2 new resin runs in his store later on today (4/29)! First off, we have the latest edition of the artist’s latest 5.5″ figure, the jaw-dropping Fra Diavolo. Rather aptly translating from French as “Brother Devil” – the nickname given to notorious Neapolitan guerrilla leader Michele Pezza – the stunning MOTU-scaled piece has been meticulously kit-bashed and re-sculpted from various vintage action figures, this time coming cast in a selection of mixed-part clear tinted resin for just $50 a piece… Next we have the latest edition of Healey’s highly popular Toil and Trouble. Standing at around 3″ tall, the figure has been kit-bashed from a vintage Disney’s Snow White figurine, coming complete with two mini ‘witch head’ hands – a subtle reference to the 3 hags in the infamous play, Macbeth. Produced in a mesmerising purple glitter infused resin, the old hag will be up for grabs alongside Fra in the Healeymade store today at 3pm EST, priced just $25 plus shipping…

Originally teased way back at the beginning of the month, Eric Nilla has just dropped his latest batch of MOTU (M.U.S.C.L.E’s of the Universe) figures, the special edition 2-Tone Skelitors… Originally created by Solar Color Dust’s Wolf Voigt, the M.U.S.C.L.E x MOTU mash-up has been recast using a special ‘spot’ technique that results in the awesome 2-Tone effect seen above. Produced in an extremely run of just 7 one-off pieces at the moment, the figures can be found on the Nilla store for just $16 plus shipping… Joining Skelitor, Eric has also been kind enough to drop another 2 highly anticipated figures onto the store as well. The recently posted ‘Fish’ Ghoulie re-make and Hellopike’s Kinnikuthulhu both make their debut, available in a huge selection of different colours for just $13 and $15 a piece… Anyone interested is going to need to head over to the store quick, stock has already begun to quickly disappear!
