Following our look at the very first test paints last week, Mark Bentley of the newly established MM Toys is proud to present the first official run of Franken Molar resin figures!

First teased here way back in January, the guys over at HipHopRobot have just revealed the very first paint tests for their debut toy, Franken Molar! Pictured here alongside another upcoming release, a collaboration with Cory Rogers entitled “Skull Rose” (more info on that soon!), the 5″ tall figure was designed by HHR’s Mark Bentley and sculpted by his other half Maren Seibold, drawing inspirations from classic B-Movie monsters, neo-kaiju and, of course, the Ooze-It doll to dazzling effect. Originally due to come in soft vinyl, the guys have since decided to take production into their own hands for this one, with this first batch coming hand cast in solid resin by Bentley. Beautifully sprayed in a vivid mix of Monster Kolor paints, this first batch of test paints will be up for grabs at some point later today (5/27) through the HipHopRobot Instagram feed for around $50 each (TBC)… Here’s hoping a bigger batch follows soon, as these 4 are certainly not going to last long!

Originally revealed as an early work in progress last month, Hip Hop Robot‘s Franken Molar is now just about ready for production! Designed by HHR’s Mark Bentley and sculpted by his better half Maren Seibold, the incredible 5″ tall figure has received numerous changes since we last saw it, including some beautiful Ooze-It inspired textures, a meaner facial expression and the addition of a fully removable “Ooze-Angler” rider! We’re still not completely sure if the piece is fated for resin or sofubi (we’re kind of hoping for both!), so be sure to stay tuned for the full lowdown once the decision has been made soon. Those interested in taking a closer look at the figure, plus HHR’s numerous other ongoing projects, are going to need to head over to the dedicated IG feed right here

Masters of the creepy/cute aesthetic, Double Parlour will be out in force at this weekend’s Designer Con, unveiling a staggering selection of micro resin runs and one-off pieces that’ll be up for grabs at their booth (#208)! With too many different figures to list here, we bring you a quick round-up of our favourite pieces revealed so far…

Bashlus (pictured top)// Limited to an edition of 20 totally unique, one-off creations, these cat-like figures have been sculpted in polymer clay, coming with a whole host of accessories, including face masks, parasites, and in 2 cases, a macabre pool of blood! Pricing on these is still to be revealed, but we’re guessing it’ll be variable due to the vast range of sizes available.

Untitled (Back Pugs)// These rather sinister looking little doggies have been limited to 6, black cast resin figures, each coming with variable length arms. Finished with a beautiful ‘galaxy’ style white spray with meticulous hand painted facial features, pricing on them is still to be confirmed.

Tilly// Featuring an adorable teddy bear costume and a smile of a psychopath(!), the super-creepy Tilly has been hand cast in an edition of 5, each coming hand painted in a mix of light blue, red and flesh for just $60 each.

Sylvie// More cute than creepy this time around, the super-clean feline sculpt receives a muted palette for this run, featuring a mix of flat olive, pink, red and black tones. Limited to an edition of 6, pricing is still to be confirmed.

Odette (main picture)// Easily our favourite figure of the bunch, the striking Odette features a simple (axe wielding!) female body sculpt with a miniature tree for a head. Limited to just 3 one-off, originally sculpted creations, each comes in a unique colourway with hand painted roots/lifelines running down the chest. Pricing TBC.

Miette// Double Parlour’s reoccurring Miette character returns for a super-limited run of 3 figures! Created from what appears to be a mix of resin and polymer clay, each comes with an originally sculpted body with alternating ‘twist’ arms. Painted in the signature mix of solid black with stripy white socks, pricing is again TBC…
