Eric Villanueva over at 1Shot Toys has been cooking up a whole host of projects over the past few months, so it came with great pleasure this week to find out that ALL of them will be available in one “Mega Drop” this Saturday, September 7th! Featuring a slew of original figures, glyos heads and customs, we bring you the full lowdown of what’ll be on offer in the 1Shot Toys store come launch time…
Clawmania// A collaboration with Clawfreak, this new custom series features recasts of the iconic M.U.S.C.L.E Claw from Eric, lavished with either paint or Monster Kolor dye by the mini figure customiser. Priced at $17 each, these will be sold individually (not bling bagged), so be sure to get in quick to bag your favourite!
War Pug Battle Beasts// Shrinking the original War Pug head down to mini figure size, Eric has cast up a batch of super-limited custom bootleg Battle Beasts! Cast in a mixture of semi-translucent GITD resins (with one UV chase!), the 2″ figures have been priced at $15 each.
War Pug Glyos Heads// Joining the custom Battle Beasts, Eric will also be unleashing the latest batch of normal-sized War Pug Glyos heads! Cast in a mix of pearl orange and pink resins, these will be available for $13 each.
Snack Attack: Sgt Angus// Following preview releases at both CT&TC and Wonder Festival, Snack Attack’s debut figure, Sgt Angus, finally makes his official debut! Sculpted by Eric and cast in a keshi-style rubber by our very own Tru:Tek, the figure will be available blind bag (in either flesh, orange or red/yellow) for just $15 each. Stay tuned for a closer look at these little guys later in the week!
Whilst the blog has unfortunately taken yet another hit today (back tomorrow, we promise!), we’ve been hard at work preparing the online sale for the slew of goodies we have left over from last weekend’s Cardiff Tattoo & Toy Con. Featuring a number of previously posted Disarticulator exclusives including the latest Madball of Death, collaborations with the likes of Ironhaus, turboPISTOLA, 1Shot Toys and Edge of Doom, PLUS the preview of Rampage Toys’ latest keshi figure, the Cupcake Plane, we suggest heading over to the store right here to take a closer look at what will be on offer come 9pm London time tonight (just an hour and a half away now!)… We once again thank you guys for your patience with the blog, expect a HUGE backlog of news stories to follow tomorrow!
First off, we’d like to give a massive apology to our readers for our lack of posts over the last week. What with Cardiff Tattoo & Toy Con over the weekend, and a whole load of casting to be done for a certain Wonder Festival in just a few days, we unfortunately had to put the old girl on the back burner… The good news is that we’ll be back at full steam in the morning with a whole host of new stories, PLUS the all important release details for tomorrow’s post-con drop! In the mean time, you’re just going to have to put up with a full rundown of what we’ll be offering up courtesy of Rampage Toys at Wonder Festival on Sunday… Enjoy!
Kesh-E-Face// We will be offering up both a restock of the original Rampage exclusive Green variant and a Wonder Festival exclusive marbled blue/red. Standing at 3″ tall and cast in a flexible keshi-style rubber, the loving tribute to all things MOTU comes with the standard 3-faced, fully rotating head. Packed with custom hand cut backers and blister bubbles, both colourways have been limited to 3 pieces each.

The CTaTC exclusive “Skate and Destroy” Critter from AshMadeThis x The Disarticulators…
Mentioned in our coverage of the “OG Cyclops” Madball of Death earlier in the week, we bring you a full reveal of the second exclusive AshMadeThis will be carrying at the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Con this weekend… the “Skate and Destroy” Critter!

A slight sidestep from his critically acclaimed custom Glyos heads, Eric over at 1ShotToys has been busy readying his first ever mini figure series… Snack Attack! A homage to Mattel’s classic 80’s line ‘Food Fighters’, the hilarious designs are to focus around a more militant theme, featuring fast food lieutenants, majors, commanders and more in the original 1″-2″ scale. First out of the blocks will be Sgt Angus (pictured left), with the meticulously sculpted figure currently undergoing prototyping and rubber production under the watchful gaze of our very own Tru:Tek. A number of colourways, exclusives and all-new figures (including the WIP Cone Commander, right) are due in the very near future, so be sure to stay tuned for the full lowdown soon!
