MAN-E-NEWS// The “Acidic Orange” Alien and “Swirled Fusion” Keep Watch Mummy Boy sofubi from Super7…
The guys over at Super7 are proud to present not one, but two new releases touching down in-store next week! First up, we have the “Acidic Orange” Alien sofubi… Collaboratively produced alongside Secret Base, the 4.5″ tall figure has been designed and sculpted to look like a classic Poppy sofubi mini, this time around coming cast in a clear “acidic” orange soft vinyl with a detail hugging black rub and that all-important clear cast dome. Available in limited quantities, the figure will be up for grabs next Thursday, April 16th at Noon Pacific time for just $50 a piece… Next we have the latest version of Super7’s collaboration with apparel brand MISHKA, the “Swirled Fusion” (TBC) Keep Watch Mummy Boy! Featuring the standard size Mummy Boy body complete with a “Keep Watch” Oculus-style head, the figure has been produced in a swirled purple and red vinyl complete with silver paint accents. Also touching down next Thursday, pricing and an exact drop time are still to be confirmed…
Super7’s lovable mascot Mummy Boy and the Earth’s Avenger, Rose Vampire, are set to return this week as part of a special run of “Peanut Butter” micros! Produced in an unpainted creamy brown soft vinyl, the tiny 2-part figures will be touching down in the Super7 store this Thursday, January 29th at Noon Pacific time for a wallet friendly $10 each plus shipping… But that’s not all! On top of the micros, Super7 have also begun teasing the next “Fighter the 13th” release! Dropping on Friday, February 13th, the drop is set to see the arrival of an all-new “sliced and diced” Fighter figure. Expect more news as soon as we hear anything!
Super7 are proud to reveal that their loveable mascot Mummy Boy is set to return this week in an all-new colorway! After taking a nice long nap in his sarcophagus, the mid-sized Mummy emerges from his slumber with old dusty bandages cast in ivory vinyl, coming with tan and white sprays on top of a brown rub treatment and finished with bright red accents. Joining Mummy Boy, the guys also have a new edition of Le Merde’s professional tennis playing vampire, Hollis Turd. Produced in a spooky glow-in-the-dark vinyl with a soft green spray, plus red, white, black, olive and blue details, the mini-sized Hollis will be joining Mummy Boy in the Super7 store at Noon PST this Thursday, November 20th, priced at $35 and $50 each respectively…
Fresh from the “Pearlescent Grey” Garuru drop last week, Super7 are gearing up for the release of their most suave and sophisticated release yet, Brian Flynn’s “Blue” Pocket Invisiboy! Decked out in a smoking jacket and cravat, the 3″ tall mini sofubi figure has been cast in white vinyl with blue spray gradation and highlights, complete with maroon and black details… Coming packed with an all-new Mummy Boy header, Pocket Invisiboy will be available from the Super7 store today (August 16th) at Noon Pacific time for just $25 plus shipping.
Whilst we endeavour to cover all of the latest production and self-made projects the art toy movement has to offer, one of the most important aspects of the scene is often neglected- custom toys. In our new weekly feature, we’ll be rounding up the best custom pieces the scene has to offer, including further links to featured artist’s work, availability, and pricing…
To kick our second week off, we be delving into the latest work from Jon Paul Kaiser, Carson Catlin, J*RYU and Zukaty to name but a few… Hope you enjoy!
Dragon Boy custom from J*RYU
As Dragatomi‘s ‘Year of the Dragon’ show looms ever closer (opening February 11th), we’re finally starting to get a look at some of the pieces that will feature, with J*RYU‘s entry, the Dragon Boy (WIP) our favourite yet. Based on the iconic Sam Flores x The Loyal Subject figure, J*RYU has re-sculpted the beautifully detailed head dress, finishing the custom with a bronze metal style colour scheme. Full reveal coming soon…
Riker’s Island Death Row Inmates from JC Rivera
The latest 3″ custom Dunny series from JC Rivera dropped this week in the form of the ‘Riker’s Island Death Row Inmates’. Limited to an edition of just 5, the hand sculpted and painted thugs are available to purchase at Tenacious Toys, priced between $40 and $75 (plus shipping) depending on the level of modification.
“… and so, as punishment for your heinous crimes, I hereby sentence each of you to death by lethal injection. You are remanded to Death Row on Riker’s Island to await your executions. Court adjourned.”
With the pounding of Judge Gerety’s gavel against his desk, the fates of the five criminals were sealed. The prosecuting attorney and the D.A. shook hands as the Inmates were led away in shackles through a door in the front of the courtroom. Reporters screamed a cacophony of questions and flashbulbs went off like strobe lights as the Inmates stepped into the beat-up, white DOC van. The short ride over the bridge to Riker’s Island would be the longest ride of their lives. It was over.
Custom NADE from JESTER
Created for Aerosol Warfare’s upcoming ‘Blow Up L.A!’ show, custom artist JESTER unveiled his latest custom NADE this week. Featuring an authentically weathered metal look, the deceptively ornate piece will be sitting alongside over 30 other custom 10″ NADE and BUD toys come the show’s opening on February 9th (Crewest Gallery).
Seven Six custom Munny from Carson Catlin
Swiftly following J*RYU this week, cut-out custom king Carson Catlin revealed yet another stunning entry for Dragatomi‘s upcoming ‘Year of the Dragon’ show, the 7″ Munny- ‘Seven Six’ (his birth year, and also a year of the Dragon). Featuring thousands of painstakingly applied bristles, the black and red dragon has got to be one of Carson’s best customs yet- here’s hoping we see more of this style in 2012!
The Buddha Munny and Daimyo from Jon Paul Kaiser
With the passing of another week comes even more hot customs from JPK, this time in the form of the ‘Buddha’ Munny and ‘Daimyo’ Android customs. Straying from the usual dark subject matter, Buddha’s smiling face and squinting eyes are a welcome change for Jon, proving that his unique b/w style can be applied to just about anything. The 3″ Daimyo on the other hand, is trademark JPK- the fully decked out samurai features some of the most insane detailing we’ve seen yet. No new as to wether these were privately commissioned, but we’ll let you know if these guys are ever made available…
The latest batch of customs from Zukaty
UK based artist Zukaty has been busy prepping his latest batch of customs for release this Saturday, February 4th. The fantastic collection is set to feature 3 8″ Dunny’s, a 7″ Munny, a 5″ MAD*L, and a Jubbs (expect prices between $40 and $160), all lovingly sprayed and brushed in Zukaty’s big, bold and brash style. In preparation for the big launch this weekend, 6 Fatcaps have been released on the store early, priced at $40 each plus shipping.
Mummy Mania! Customs from the Crypt at Super7
Held last weekend, Super7’s Mummy Mania! show featured over 40 Mummy Boy customs from some of the neo-kaiju scene’s biggest talents, including Mummy Boy sculptor Brian Flynn, Leecifer, Blurble, Paul Kaiju and Nebulon 5. All of the customs are now available to purchase through the Super7 store, with prices ranging between $55-$600. Our personal favourite is Rik Sans‘ neon-hued effort (pictured below left), the colours are quite simply out of this world- I have to say I’ve fallen in love with the pink to purple spray, but it’s that tight green detailing that really helps to make this Mummy pop. Where’s a spare $250 when you need it?!
