Disart ToyLabs x Awesome Toy’s SD Fake Baron keshi…

pencil topper promo

After months on the drawing board, we can finally reveal the latest figure in Awesome Toy‘s ongoing Artist Collection series… the “Super Deformed” Fake Baron keshi from our very own Tru:Tek and the Disart ToyLabs! Designed by Tru:Tek to fit in with the standard vintage SD super bot keshi, the little guy has been 3D sculpted in-scale by Brownoize at little under 1″ tall, coming hand cast in an authentic keshi-style urethane rubber. Available with 2 initial buying options, we have a 3-pack produced in the super ‘bot’s classic red/yellow/blue and a special singular version, again coming in red but fitted with a pencil-sized hole in the bottom. Both coming packed in a gacha capsule with an insert designed by Tru:Tek with artwork from Rich Sheehan, the 3-pack and pencil topper can currently be found in the Toy Underground store right here for just $15 and $7 respectively… Look out for news on a Disart ToyLabs exclusive version very soon!

MAN-E-NEWS// The “King Gainer” SD keshi from Kazpunk…

Joining the slew of mini figures that’ll be up for grabs at Wonderfestival Winter 2015 this Sunday, January 8th, up and coming producer Kazpunk has just revealed his debut creation, the King Gainer SD keshi! Based on the lead protagonist in Yoshiyuki Tomino‘s OVERMANキングゲイナ TV series, the tiny little guy has been sculpted in the same style as the classic super-deformed Gundam keshi (another Tomino property), albeit with the addition of some rather ornate articulation in the shoulders. Hand cast in a selection of orange, green and blue rubber for the event, the King Gainer SD keshi will be available in limited quantities at the Paralyzing Toyz booth (5-05-01) for an undisclosed sum…


MAN-E-NEWS// Custom painted NillaKeshi Splatterhouse Rick from I.Designs…

In lieu of securing Eric Nilla’s SD Splatterhouse Rick for a MAN-E-TOYS exclusive (find out more here), we’ve decided to take a little look at the awesome custom I.Designs (Imperfecz Toys) created a while back. Fetching a hefty $50 on a recent Litte Rubber Guys auction thread, I.Designs has stayed true to the original video game inspiration, decking Rick out in meticulously detailed blue jeans, a suitably stained and weathered meat cleaver… plus the all important blood splattered hockey mask! Standing at around 1″ tall, the authentic keshi-style rubber figure will be landing in our store over the next month (price tbc), but if you can’t wait (or are looking for different colours!), head over to the dedicated LRG thread here. Expect more news on our Nilla x Niku exclusives soon…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Meatgrinder vs. Half Baked Ham Namakeshi custom bootlegs…

As mentioned earlier in the week, we still weren’t sure as to whether Meatgrinder’s sparring buddy, Half Baked Ham, would be making it into our first batch of Nama-Niku x Eric Nilla Namakeshi exclusives… well today we can reveal that our meaty friend has made the cut! To be released alongside Meatgrinder in the original Vs. 2 pack, the set will be limited to a super-rare edition of just three, with two coming in the previously revealed blue, whilst the remainder will be cast in purple. To celebrate this awesome news, we’ve decided to take a closer look at the figures… plus a sneak peak at Nama-Niku’s upcoming Chibi Half Baked!

Easily one of our favourite custom M.U.S.C.L.E 2 packs to date, Meatgrinder vs. Half Baked Ham plays on Nama-Niku’s reoccurring meat theme with style (apt considering Niku directly translates as “meat” in Japanese!)… Similar in design to the previously featured Chibi version, Meatgrinder features a beautifully realised meat grinder shaped head (replete with oozing meat!), plus the unmistakable Namakeshi branding that we’ve all come to know and love (the letter M presumably reffers to Meat!). His rival, the Half Baked Ham, has also been treated with the same care and attention, with the half baked head’s ingenious “bone” eye, pineapple slices and carving knife never failing to make us smile. Coming bagged and headed together, these pro-quality figures have been cast in a flexible keshi style rubber with an authentic flesh toned tint (more colours are available). Head over to Rubber Little Guys here with any purchasing enquiries… or you could just wait until we release ours!

Joining the marvelous Chibi Meatgrinder comes the latest mini-M.U.S.C.L.E in the illustrious Namakeshi series, the Chibi Half Baked! Once again sticking to the semi-realistic proportions of the Chibi Meatgrinder, the new Half Baked retains the ham-head (this time centralising the “bone” eye) and knife, sacrificing the bold HAM lettering for an H buckle that is a lot better suited to the miniature design. No news on exact pricing or release dates, so be sure to stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks…



MAN-E-UPDATE// The Eric Nilla x Nama-Niku MAN-E-TOYS exclusives- first test pulls…

As mentioned in our recent exposé of their awesome work, the mighty Eric Nilla and Tyler from Nama-Niku have agreed to work on a number of exclusives for our store… so it comes with great pleasure today to reveal to you the very first test pulls! Due to feature Eric’s SD Splatterhouse Rick, alongside Tyler’s Chibi Meatgrinder, standard Meatgrinder, and the Super Rare M.U.S.C.L.E Can (the pictured Half Baked Ham has not been confirmed), the 4 figures will be cast in an authentic keshi style rubber, coming in both a Man-E-Faces themed blue and super-limited purple colourway. As you can see by the comparison below, Eric’s already got the tints spot on… so expect to see these in the MAN-E-TOYS store sooner rather than later! In the mean time, we’ll be covering each of the figures in depth over the next few weeks (the Super Rare M.U.S.C.L.E Can has already featured here), so be sure to stay tuned!


MAN-E-NEWS// Scrap Sanadayu custom bootlegs from Luke Harris…

Continuing our look into the world of custom M.U.S.C.L.E/Keshi in the lead up to next month’s ‘Ed Skworm and Min-E-Face release (find out more here), we bring you the awesome custom Scrap Sanadayu bootlegs from Luke Haris of Imperfecz Toys! Originally created for a short lived manga that aired just after the original Kinnikuman series, Luke has recast these extremely rare figures for the new wave of M.U.S.C.L.E/Keshi collectors that would have easily missed them the first time around. Priced at $150 for the 10 piece set (an absolute steal when compared to the original’s $500+ pricetag), the beautifully recreated figures come in an authentic flesh toned rubber that is strikingly similar to Keshi. Unfortunately due to temperature problems in Luke’s studio, production on the Scrap Sanadayu’s have halted for the time being, so be sure to keep checking the Imperfecz store for updates.

Head over to the University of M.U.S.C.L.E for an in-depth analysis of the set…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Super Rare M.U.S.C.L.E. Can from Nama-Niku and Eric Nilla…

[Photos from the University of M.U.S.C.L.E]

As mentioned in our feature yesterday (read more here), we will be delving into the world of both M.U.S.C.L.E and Kinnikuman a lot more as we ready our ‘Ed Skworm vs. Min-E-Face release, with no better place to start than Nama-Niku and Eric Nilla’s awesome Super Rare M.U.S.C.L.E Can. In what can only be described as a M.U.S.C.L.E collectors ultimate fantasy, the trash can has 10 non-poster (super-rare) figures sinisterly peering out from under the lid! Meticulously sculpt and kit-bashed by Tyler and cast in an authentic flesh coloured rubber, the overall size and scale sits nicely between the original collectors can and a standard M.U.S.C.L.E figure. Priced at just $25 (an incredible price for such a substantial hand cast figure!), we’re unsure of availability at the moment, so your best bet is to contact Tyler through Namu-Niku here. For an in-depth review on this stunning piece head over to the University of M.U.S.C.L.E

Revealed yesterday, the Super Rare M.U.S.C.L.E. Can will be featuring in our first line-up of exclusive colourways from the talented duo. Stay tuned in the coming weeks, where we’ll be revealing colours, edition size and pricing in the build-up to a summer release exclusively on the MAN-E-TOYS store
