MAN-E-TOYS// October Toys’ OMFG! Series 2 Kickstarter campaign…

It’s been just two months since the winning entries for October Toys‘ OMFG! Series 2 were revealed, so it came with much surprise yesterday to find the motley crew already up on Kickstarter! Representing the cream of the crop in mini figures right now, the five designs were whittled down from over 400 entries around the world, with a total of 1397 casted votes and over 19 pages of forum entries! Available in the now standard Flesh and Kickstarter Black colourways for as little as a $10 pledge ($15 overseas), be sure to head over to the campaign page before August 6th to guarantee yours…

OMFG! Series 2 consists of five figures including:

1. Puke Knight designed and sculpted by Jared DeCosta (aka redjarojam) from Massachusetts

2. Shirtle designed by Kenjitron from Hawaii and sculpted by George Gaspar from Los Angeles

3. Cry-Borg designed by Andrew Scribner (aka RuFuS) from Rhode Island

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Rise of the Beasts” series 1 from LittleRubberGuys’ Jon Karis…

After months of trials and tribulations including a fully backed yet cancelled Kickstater campaign (find out more here), plus a slew of production issues, the promising “Rise of the Beasts” series 1 from Little Rubber Guys‘ Jon Karis should finally be seeing the light of day soon! Primarily influenced by the 1986 Battle Beast line, the ROTBs are to be cast in hard wearing PVC, will come with similar articulation to the 80′s classics, and are also set feature the usual accessories including swords, axes and maces. Unfortunately, production shots sent from the factory of the line’s first figure, the Gold Lion, have revealed that although the sculpt is pretty much spot on, both arms and head are wildly disproportionate to the body… a new 3D print has been readied (pictured above), that will be moulded, reproduced and articulated before heading back to the factory in China soon… Alongside the 80mm Gold Lion, Jon has also been working on 2 new figures on a smaller scale, the 60mm Rhino, and an as yet unrevealed sidekick. These will also be making their way into production soon (as long as Jon can secure the original $25-$30 price point), so be sure to check back soon as we bring you more details on this awesome looking series…


MAN-E-NEWS// Box-O-Zombies customs from Adam Pratt…

With the utterly brilliant “Box-O-Zombies” touching down a few weeks back, our good friend Adam Pratt wasted no time in getting to work on them, with his first batch getting a full reveal last week. Consisting of 6 pvc “green soldier” style mounted figures, the Box-O-Zombies’ high level of realism and adherence to scale over the likes of S.L.U.G and OMFG has given Adam the leeway to produce some of the most jaw-dropping customs we’ve seen from the artist to date. Unfortunately, these guys have already found a home in one lucky person’s collection, but if you’re interested in bagging a set, head over to his site now to make an enquiry…

Box-O-Zombies press//

“Box O Zombies is owned by Immersive Realms, Inc. founded and operated by Shawn Recinto. The figures and artwork are created by a few Chicago artists who have a passion for zombies, figures, and just making things awesome. 

Box O Zombies was initially inspired by Shawn’s kids. Whenever he saw his sons play with their toys i.e. little green army men, they usually ended up pretending zombies were attacking their soldiers as they would try to protect/defend an area in their sister’s dollhouse. So Shawn looked online for some zombie figures similar to the little green army men and discovered that there were not many options. The options that were out there didn’t have that scary zombie look the toy soldiers would fear, so he pitched the idea to a local artist and thus Box O Zombies were born. 

Since December of 2010, our small group at Box O Zombies have been working hard to make this possible. We are proud to announce the beginning of a fun and creative company.”
