We’ve seen them released in a number of exclusive runs over the past couple of months, so it came with great pleasure today to find that the long awaited Ion Men will finally be getting a full online release next week courtesy of the toys’ co-designer Turbopistola! Cast in a super-sleek clear black vinyl for this artist proof run, Turbs will be offering up a total of 8 different builds this time around (including the pictured transforming Uchusen), each coming with a total of 7 fully interchangeable parts. Priced at a wallet friendly $25 a piece, the figures will be touching down in the Turbopistola store next Wednesday at an undisclosed time… Can’t wait to get your fix?

MAN-E-NEWS// Japanese Ion Men factory samples from A.O.I…

028

After a whopping 14 months on the drawing board, Any Old Ion‘s labour of love, the ‘Japanese Ion Men’ modular sofubi have finally been revealed in near-finished factory sample form! Consisting of a staggering 51 different soft vinyl cast parts designed by A.O.I in conjunction with turboPISTOLA, the series features a number of interchangeable pieces inspired by previous A.O.I releases ‘Atomic Beartank’ and ‘Seismic Ace’, Spanky Stokes’ Stroll, plus a number of all-new designs from the pair. Cast in a soft Japanese vinyl by none other than Velocitron, we should hopefully be seeing the first release soon… We’ll be interested to see whether the line will be offered up as a set of individual parts or as fully assembled bots, and of course, how colour will be dealt with considering the interchangeability factor- the possibilities are limitless! Either way, this will be one series any diehard ‘bot fan will NOT want to miss…


MAN-E-NEWS// AnyOldIon’s work-in-progress robot sculpts…

It’s been a while since we’ve featured AnyOldIon (formerly Smash Tokyo Toys), so it came with great pleasure this week to find that the guys are still feverishly working away on completing their awesome-sounding modular robot line. In conjunction with Turbopistola, the guys set about designing a huge selection of different heads, bodies, arms and weapons, which, as you can see from the shots above, are already taking shape as initial sculpts… Due to be cast in a Japanese soft vinyl, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for at least some test shots of the first release by the end of the year. Can’t wait for your mecha-robot fix? Then you’ll be glad to know that Tenacious Toys are still stocking the original Smash Tokyo Toys “Seismic Ace” for an unbelievable $40 plus shipping right here
