MAN-E-NEWS// The Morrow resin micro figures from Taylored Curiosities…

“Have you heard the legend of the Morrow? These tiny creatures existed thousands of years ago before the last ice age. Luckily they had magic on their side and managed to escape through a portal and save their race. These days the Morrow tend to pop in and out of our world. They can use the magical doorway to visit and collect items that they need. If you have lost something, you might find it was pilfered by a tiny creature who disappeared before you noticed it was gone.”

Following a brief hiatus, Penny Taylor over at Taylored Curiosities is back with her latest micro-resin release… the adorable Morrows! Originally appearing in fossilised form at ToyCon UK last month, the tiny 1.1″ tall creature has been cast in a light pink resin for this initial release. Packaged in a beautiful upscaled dark wood box, the figure comes nestled in a bed of feathers, buttons and blossom for just £30 plus shipping. Head over to the Taylored Curiosities store right here to take a closer look…

Following the work in progress shots we posted last week, Chris Alexander over at Creo Designs is proud to reveal Cowababa: Baby Mutant Ninja Turtle in all his pizza eating, shell spinning glory! Created for the debut of Taylored Curiosities‘ Giant Monster Embryo, Chris has completely transformed the humungous resin figure (which, incidentally was sculpted and produced by Creo based on TC’s design) with a mixture of resin and epoxy sculpting. Opting for TMNT’s Michelangelo, the orange bandana’d hatchling has been painted in a mixture of Montana sprays and brushwork, finished off with a beautiful matt varnish on the main body and hi-gloss on the shell. Weighing in at a monstrous 3.5kg, Cowababa will be available alongside a whole host of other Giant Embryo customs at Taylored Curiosities’ ToyConUK booth for £800…
