MAN-E-NEWS// The exclusive Min-E-Face comic strip from Bigmantoys!

In celebration of the release of our very first H.U.S.T.L.E 2 pack tomorrow (check it out here), we are proud to present an exclusive comic strip from our good friend Lee over at Bigmantoys, featuring the series’ main protagonist, the mighty Min-E-Face! Before you take a look, we suggest giving Min-E’s brief backstory a read to get you in the mood…

Cast aside from the MAN-E family at birth due to a rare defect that left him without the use of two of his faces, Min-E was kindly taken in by an NJPW wrestler who nurtured the otherworldly fighting skill that laid dormant inside the young boy. Sworn enemy of the Skworm (his estranged family’s closest ally), MIN-E is about to embark on his biggest quest yet- to rid the world once and for all of these putrid, sickly creatures and gain revenge on the family that once left him for dead!”

The ‘Ed Skworm Vs. Min-E-Face 2 pack will be touching down in both “Toxic Green” and “Ultra Violet” editions on the Man-E-Store tomorrow (October 5th) at 9pm London time for just $25 per set. Stay tuned for our mega H.U.S.T.L.E post before the drop, featuring more backstories and exclusive shots, plus an exclusive look at the upcoming “Skworm Hunter” 3 pack…

Big thanks to Bigmantoys for the amazing artwork!

Right guys… after months of agonising set backs, the first batch of H.U.S.T.L.E mini figures are finally ready to drop! The debut toy line from our very own Tru:Tek, the “M.U.S.C.L.E” inspired series is set to feature a whole host of bootlegs, customs and original toys with more than a hint of 80’s nostalgia…

Dedicated to our blog’s namesake, MOTU’s Man-E-Faces, the first 2 figures will be coming in the form of a duel-style pack, featuring Min-E-Face (the hero of H.U.S.T.L.E) versus ‘Ed Skworm (one of the H.U.S.T.L.E Universe’s many villains). Re-sculpted and kit-bashed by Man-E-Toys’ Tru:Tek, and produced by Steve Patt (aka oOMoSOo) of Papagrim Toys, the pair are due to come packaged in an authentic, hologram stamped clamshell blister pack, complete with laminated collectible stat cards with artwork from the “Critters inspired” mini fig creator Zectron. The first 2 editions, the clear resin cast Toxic Green and Ultra Violet (GID) will be going on sale in the Man-E-Toys store this Friday (October 5th) at 9pm London time for $25 plus shipping. Edition size has been limited to just 10 of each, so be sure to get in quick to secure yours… Joining both Toxic Green and Ultra Violet in the coming weeks, we will also be offering Noir and Muscle Flesh editions, alongside a limited supply of authentic keshi-style rubber variants (cast by our very own Tru:Tek) for the mini figure diehards… Stay tuned over the coming week as we’ll be posting more about the H.U.S.T.L.E Universe, including exclusive hand drawn comic strips from our good friend Lee over at Bigmanytoys, a sneak out our upcoming figures, plus details on how you can get involved in future releases yourself!

BACKSTORYS:

MIN-E-FACE// Cast aside from the MAN-E family at birth due to a rare defect that left him without the use of two of his faces, Min-E was kindly taken in by an NJPW wrestler who nurtured the otherworldly fighting skill that laid dormant inside the young boy. Sworn enemy of the Skworm (his estranged family’s closest ally), MIN-E is about to embark on his biggest quest yet- to rid the world once and for all of these putrid, sickly creatures and gain revenge on the family that once left him for dead!

‘ED SKWORM// Although one of the smallest species of [sick worm], the ‘Ed Skworm is widely known as the most brutal. Reported to be able to ingest a whole human head within 6.66 seconds, natives of the Stench (the Skworm’s most common hunting ground) have taken to wearing ‘Pepto-dysmal’ charms, the sorry beast’s only weakness, in a bid to stay alive. With a penchant for midget Japanese Pro wrestlers, our hero Min-E will have to watch his back or he’ll be losing the use of three faces instead of two!


MAN-E-NEWS// The Junkyard Zombie one-off sculpt from Steve Patt…

Whilst Chicago’s Toy Invaderz show has been and gone, Tenacious Toys are proud to reveal that they are currently stocking the dozens of pieces that went unsold!
