DONTEN-02

Originally making an appearance at Design Fiesta 39 a couple of weeks back, Datadub has just revealed that a number of new figures are up for grabs in the Fig-X store right now! Marking the first online release of Datadub’s very own “Don” Finger 5 sofubi, a total of 3 designs are up for grabs from the WF mini DON-TEN exhibition (pictured top), with both Kick (red) and Kaider (blue) homage paints from legendary sofubi painter Goto-san, and a Rampage Blue IFR version from Jon Malmstedt. Priced at just 2,000yen ($20) plus shipping, the trio can be found right here

Joining the mini Dons, Datadub has also unleashed a total of 4 Real x Nibblers from The Tarantulas! Featuring the return of the ToyCon exclusive Bounty Nibbler and Power Nibbler (albeit in a super-charged DX form), the pair are joined by 2 all-new colourways; Datadub’s signature “Welcome to the Jungle” camo (edit- sold out) and Kinnikuman/M.U.S.C.L.E homage “S.A.U.S.A.G.E” (!). All 4 can be found in the store alongside the mini Dons right here, priced at 4,800yen ($47) plus shipping…

MAN-E-NEWS// Triclops’ ‘BeefCake’ custom bootleg from the Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach twin pack…

Screen Shot 2013-06-15 at 10.35.41

We’ve been following the progress of Triclops‘ ‘Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach‘ release for the past month or so now, and with the reveal of the pictured BeefCake (aka Protein Bar-t aka Muscle Wayne!) this week, we’re guessing we won’t have too much longer to wait! To be joined by the previously posted ‘Final Boss’ from Ralph Niese x The Tarantulas, the thongtastic figure has been kit-bashed from what looks like a variety of MIMP Wrestlers, coming with huge doubled-up fists and a hilarious knuckle six-pack! We’ll be keeping a close eye out for firm release details over the coming weeks, but in the meantime we suggest staying locked on the Triclops IG feed here for the first test shots soon…

BASTARD Beach

Following the WIP sculpt we unofficially leaked a couple of weeks back (check it out here, we’re not posting it again!), the guys over at Triclops have finally revealed how the incredible figure will be released… as they proudly present the ‘Venice B.A.S.T.A.R.D Beach’ Twin Pack! Sculpted by the supremely talented Ralph Niese based on a design by The Tarantulas (which, funnily enough can be found on the front of the recently released Nibblers Annual- it’s the big pink one!), the M.U.S.C.L.E scaled figure is due to come cast in a resin 2 pack, with another thong-tastic figure from the Triclops boys to be revealed soon. Release details are still thin on the ground at the moment, but you can be sure that as soon as we hear anything, you guys will be the first to know…


MAN-E-NEWS// The ‘Final Boss’ WIP mini figure from Ralph Niese x The Tarantulas x Triclops(?)…

Legendary illustrator and sculptor Ralph Niese has once again teamed up with The Tarantulas for the latest NIBBLER release, although this time around it’s a little different to the Glyos resins the pair are famed for! Taking inspiration from the iconic M.U.S.C.L.E line, the stunning ‘FINAL BOSS’ stands just a little taller than a standard figure- although measuring roughly 3 times wider! Posted on Niese’s Flickr stream with the tag “coming to a clops near you…”, we can only assume that the figure is part of an upcoming B.A.S.T.A.R.D project with Triclops Studios… Stay tuned for the full lowdown as soon as we hear anything!


MAN-E-NEWS// The Tarantulas’ ToyConUK exclusives…

ChompyMan

With ToyConUK just a few days away now, The Tarantulas finally reveal the plethora of exclusives they’ll be bringing along to the Fishtank Castle LIVE booth… Neo-kaiju fans not attending the event be warned- you’re going to be turning all shades of green when you see what’s on offer! For those lucky few that are though, here’s a quick rundown of what you can can expect…

Bubblegum II// Based on the 2009 SDCC resin NIBBLER release, this ‘remake’ has been cast in a flesh soft vinyl, coming complete with black eyepatch. This little guy will be available when the doors open at 10am.

Chompy Man// Once again opting for an awesome flesh-toned soft vinyl, Chompy Man comes with a striking pair of blue pants inspired by Action Man. He will also be available open doors.

1983// The rather aptly titled figure comes in a mix of familiar 80’s action figure colours that The Tarantulas played around with when the NIBBLERS were originally conceived. Unlike the previous figures, 1983 will drop at some point in the afternoon. We suggest keeping on the lookout for this one, it’s going to disappear pretty quick!

Joining the big 3, The Tarantulas have also confirmed a super limited batch of mixed part Real x Nibbler one-offs, the remaining 10 copies of the 1983 Annual, a special ‘under the counter’ resin release, plus a whole host of guests that will be dropping by throughout the event… Expect a full booth reveal over the weekend!
