The guys over at Shamrock Arrow have just revealed that they will be resurrecting their first ever sofubi figure, the Street Sharks-inspired “Fang”, for an exclusive colourway at this year’s Amazing Model Expo-Japan! Cast in an ivory/bone coloured soft vinyl, the 3″ tall Ma-Ba Zombie style torso has been treated to a detail hugging black rub complete with hand painted detailing and one-off colour eye inserts. Available at the Shamrock Arrow AMEJ booth this Sunday, August 17th alongside figures from Astro Zombies, Pop Soda and Anookata for around 3,000yen ($29) each… Here’s hoping we finally see a few of these in the West now they’ve made a comeback!

MAN-E-NEWS// Triclops’ ‘Threet Sharks’ Sametan custom for the Don’t Tread On Me group show…

Created for Pangeaseed x Comet Debris‘ “Don’t Tread On Me” charity custom show this weekend, the Triclops boys have tackled the Sametan sofubi platform in a way only they know… Threet Sharks style! Heavily influenced by cult kid’s cartoon Street Sharks (a no brainer for the 90’s obsessed duo!), the soft vinyl figure has undergone a serious overhaul, with the addition of vintage action figure arms, a completely re-sculpted jaw, plus a faithful ‘Ripster’ style paint job… Available to purchase alongside a dizzying array of other Sametan customs on the Pangeaseed store right here, proceeds from the sales will be going towards the foundation’s latest shark-saving project,  2014 “Year of Living Dangerously” art tour of Asia. Head over to their dedicated site here for more information…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “Slash” custom Street Shark from Adam Pratt…

What with his stunning Candy Coated Custom Show entry, numerous commissioned projects, a micro resin drop and an upcoming blind boxed custom Android series, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Adam Pratt has little time for personal projects… but as you can see from his latest stunning piece, the “Slash” Street Shark custom, he always manages to squeeze in the odd self-indulgent custom here and there!

Remembered for their sheer bulkiness and size, the under-used Street Shark platform has proven to be an awesome canvas for Adam’s meticulous paint style, with a considered use of washes, weathering and fine detail really helping to elevate the action figure into the realms of art. Sadly, this guy has already been accounted for, but Adam plans to work on another of Dr Piranoid’s goons, Slobster, in the near future. Follow Adam on Instagram @monsters_eye for daily studio updates…
