MAN-E-NEWS// The Evil MOTU Eater from Kalaka Toys…

10914441_1542585652667011_1885107040_n

Mad genius Matias over at Kalaka Toys has just revealed his first toy of 2015, E.M.E: The Evil MOTU Eater! Featuring a whole slew of kit-bashed MOTU parts – namely the heads of the series’ most memorable heroes and foes – the hulking figure features an originally sculpted, kaiju-style body, loosely taking on the appearance of the MIMP Jotun Troll. Initially due to be cast in resin for a limited release on the Kalaka store, Matias is currently looking into soft vinyl production for the figure, so fingers crossed that with a few modifications the figure makes it into sofubi later on in the year. Keep track of the Kalaka Toys Instagram feed here for news on that first resin release soon…

Originally debuting in limited quantities at the Jung Busch Resin Toy Show back in May, Goodleg Toys‘ second War on Prehis figure, the fearsome Mace Drone, will finally be up for pre-order later this week! Joining Claw Drone, the latest fusion of cyborgs, zombies and pre-historic beasts (come on, what’s not to like out of that mix?!) has been kit-bashed and intensively resculpted from a vintage KO 5.5″ action figure, coming cast in a light grey resin with red, black and yellow hand painted detailing. Touching down in the Goodleg store this Sunday, July 14th for an undisclosed sum, the hideous freak of nature (in a good way, of course!) will be joined by a beautifully realised mini companion comic from none other than Ralph Niese…

Claw Drone backstory//

“Just like all Battle Drones, Claw Drones are insensible, dead human organisms, kept artificially alive by a synthetic life-support system. The Cyber Genetic Killer Battle Saurs are their masters, using them as weapons and tools in their daily bellum omnium contra omnes on post-apocalyptic Prehis.

With their gigantic protheses Claw Drones literally “cut” their way through the battle field. Once they make it through, they can easily chop off the legs of opposing Battle Saurs, irrespective of how strong the armor is. These Drones can cut through everything!”
