MAN-E-NEWS// The “My Pet Gergle” sofubi micro-run from Topheroy x Miscreation Toys…

Hot on the heals of the recently announced “Iron Monster” release from Skinner, Jeremi Rimel of Miscreation Toys has teamed up with yet another artist for a limited micro-run, proudly presenting the “My Pet Gergle” sofubi from Topheroy! Based on the artist’s original resin custom created way back in 2013 (check it here), Miscreation’s “Gergle” Autopsy Baby has been cast in a similar (albeit opaque) blue vinyl, coming complete with purple, red, teal and silver sprays, a removable eye and metal chain accessory- all inspired by cult 1980’s plush toy “My Pet Monster”. Limited to an edition of just 10 figures, the My Pet Gergles will be touching down in Topheroy’s store this Friday, August 15th for $200 plus shipping…


MAN-E-NEWS// MonsterIsland’s “My Pet Fink” resin figure teased…

Paul Bas over at NYC’s MonsterIsland is proud to reveal the first in a series of resin figures he’ll be unleashing throughout the year based on the seminal work of Ed Roth… the jaw-dropping My Pet Fink! An ingenious mash-up of Roth’s Rat Fink and iconic 80’s plush toy-cum-Saturday morning cartoon star My Pet Monster, the impressive 8″ tall piece was co-designed alongside Gnosis’ Grizlli Atom and digitally sculpted by iamscumbag, with full-scale resin production due courtesy of MonsterIsland soon. Stay tuned for more news on the figure – and his upcoming band of companions – as soon as we get it…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “My Pet Madball” resin figure from Motorbot…

PSX_20140822_084523

Originally teased here as a near finished sculpt a couple of weeks back, Motorbot‘s “My Pet Madball” resin has just been released in the Meathead store! Based on an illustration the artist created a couple of years back, the cycloptic beastie has been inspired by classic 80’s plush “My Pet Monster”, perfectly realised in 3D as an Madball-scaled, 3″ wide ball. Cast in solid resin, the figure has treated to a simple, flat paint job for this first run- which whilst in-keeping with the vintage Madball paint apps, is sadly lacking in the vivid hues of the original toy, or the detailed washes of Motorbot’s usual output. A minor flaw really, and one that both the impeccable concept and sculpt more than make up for… Residing in the store right here, My Pet Madball comes complete with handcuff display base (not pictured) for just $45 plus shipping… Here’s hoping for a blank run of these soon!

Motorbot is the latest artist to get in on Madballs’ recent resurgence amongst the indie toy community, proudly presenting his latest creation, the the My Pet Madball! Based on an illustration the artist created a couple of years back, the cycloptic beastie has been inspired by the classic 80’s plush “My Pet Monster”, perfectly realised in 3D as an authentically scaled, 3″ wide ball. Due to be making an initial appearance in resin followed by a full run in a Madball-style foam soon, be sure to keep track of Motorbot’s Instagram feed here for release details later this week…

Whilst it was disappointing to find that Topheroy‘s incredible “My Pet Monster” Autopsy Baby won’t be available for sale, the artist has thankfully teamed up with Miscreation Toys to produce a run of 4 one-off customs! Utilising the “Gergle” sculpt, each has been hand cast in a unique clear tinted resin, complete with Topheroy’s unique blend of contrasting metallic, flaked and semi-transparent sprays. Going on sale in the Miscreation store this Monday, November 18th (time TBC), the figures have been priced at $375 each plus shipping. Interested parties can check out a specially made promo video here for a closer look…

Topheroy proudly presents his latest custom masterpiece, the “My Pet Monster” Autopsy Baby! Cast in a clear blue resin for this incredible one-off, Topheroy has adorned the gruesome infant in a mixture of neon red, purple, blue and orange sprays 100% faithful to the cult 80’s plush  (the MPM chains reference in the staple stitches being the icing on the cake for us!). Unfortunately not for sale at present, we’ll be keeping our fingers and toes crossed that a similar run in the recently unveiled Autopsy Baby sofubi will rear it’s ugly head soon… Well, we can hope anyway!
