MAN-E-NEWS// The Nine2Five Dominant Species custom from Hoakser…

“He’s fresh out of work, and can’t wait to catch a few tags on his way home…”

Continuing his recent onslaught of Dominant Species customs (check them all out here), UK graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to present the latest recruit to join the fray, the gruesome Nine2Five! Kit-bashed, burnt, sculpted and weathered with Hoakser’s usual flair, the white colar worker-gone-postal stands at a lofty 14.5cm tall, coming complete with 4-points of articulation, the trademark fatcap head, and mounted feeder… Priced at just £29.99 plus postage, Nine2Five is available through Hoakser’s store now.


MAN-E-NEWS// The “Uber-Ill” Thundercat custom from Hoakser…

Joining the recently featured Veteran (find out more here), UK graffiti artist Hoakser kindly shares with us his latest “Dominant Species” custom, the rather awesome Uber-Ill. Kit-bashed from one of Thundercats’ slightly more obscure characters, Cuber Bill the Robear Berbil (see what he did with the name?!!), the stunning figure comes with Hoakser’s usual high quality sculpting, modifying and faithful distressed paint job. Fitted with a fatcap head and flow pipe, Uber-Ill even has his own agitator… making him rattle like a spray can when you shake him! Due to touch down in the Hoakser store at 8pm London time tonight (Tuesday, July 31st), Uber-Ill will come priced at just £34.99 plus shipping…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Dominant Species “Veteran” custom from Hoakser…

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Hoakser with regards to the Dominant Species line, so it came with great pleasure this morning to find the latest member nestled in our inbox! Entitled “The Veteran”, the stunning figure has been kit-bashed, re-sculpted, burnt, painted, weathered and wired to form one of our favourite entries into the series yet. Unlike previous releases, “The Veteran” was originally an over-sized Gears of War figure, meaning this guy packs a whopping 11 points of articulation, shotgun/pouch accessories, plus a well-balanced, quality build. Due to land on his store soon for just £49 plus shipping, Hoakser has stated that the remaining unsold Dominant Species will also be available for a reduced price of £30-£40…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Dominant Species Part 5: Leather Back custom from Hoakser…

The first of 3 new additions to the Dominant Species series, Leather Back is the latest custom from UK based graffiti artist, Hoakser. Towering above Jack, Why Front, Polkadot and Unknown, Leather Back was originally an Incredible Hulk figure, that with hours of burning, sculpting, spraying, and brushing has become one of Hoakser’s strongest customs to date. Coming with his own dioramic plinth (replete with the remains of his last opponent!), Leather Back will be available alongside his 4 brothers on the Hoakser eBay store soon. Expect news on the remaining cast of the Dominant Species (the Medic and Three Fourths) to follow next week…

“This is Leatherback, wounded in battle, he had his arm pulled off, but don’t worry it will grow back…He used to be an Incredible Hulk figure who was  missing an arm already,he was given to me by a friend..After hours of work, he is now the biggest member of the crew with the most muscle..”- Hoakser


Update// The Dominant Species from Hoakser…

Revealed in the Tru:Teknology Files a couple of weeks back, Hoaker’s Dominant Species custom wrestler figures are now available to purchase through his store here. Both standing at around 16cm tall, “Jack” and “Why Front?” come with 9 points of articulation for your posing pleasure…

Priced at £69.99 and £64.99 respectively, each figure comes with their own hand drawn sketch/piece that can be customised to order if you so wish. Check them out now- they’re not going to be around for long!

Union Jack was the first one I finished, he’s proud to be British and everything he sprays comes from inside..I handpainted him with acylics, after burning and mutilating him badly.. Something as graffiti artists we always try to do – burn toys!

Why front? Comes complete with a hand drawn illustration and certificate,  and is a completely unique model..to see how I made these figures check my blog post here.. He has loads of detail, including some nike trainers, battle damage and loads of gore.. -Hoakser


The Dominant Species: new customs from Hoakser…

Featured extensively here at the Tru:Teknology Files (including our exclusive interview here), UK graffiti artist Hoakser has been putting the final touches to his latest custom art toy project, The Dominant Species. Standing at 16cm tall, the pair of customised wrestling figures have been burnt, re-sculpted, and sprayed to perfection, featuring Hoakser’s now infamous fat cap head surgery to dazzling effect.

The two figures will be available to purchase through Hoakser’s site soon, coming individually signed, with a certificate of authenticity and free sketch. Pricing is still to be announced…

Just finished are my latest creations, the sort of thing I wish I had when I was a kid. I made these by adapting wrestling figures into these one of a kind graff models..I acquired the figures a while ago after finding them in a skip, and held onto them knowing I’d try and make them into something.. I finally got round to it and made them both at the same time…Introducing the DOMINANT SPECIES…
