9220254988_75170b0c0f_z-1

Previewed here a couple of weeks back, Skinner‘s latest foray into the world of custom bootlegs, the Mansons of the Universe, has finally been revealed in full! Unlike previously thought, each of the edition of 50 figures has been created using actual vintage 5.5″ toys instead of resin castings- resulting in the diverse range of one-off freaks you see below! Replete with dagger pendant, cape, and hand cast resin head sculpted by the Skin Man himself, each figure has been hand finished in a unique mix of psychedelic sprays and brushed detailing. Packaged on an awesome MOTU inspired backer, the Mansons of the Universe will be available from the DKE Toys SDCC booth on Friday, July 19th at 11am for $150 each…

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…
