MAN-E-NEWS// Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine from Hoakser…

After a brief hiatus from the customising scene, UK based graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to present his latest piece, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine! A one-off custom piece created from an abandoned Thomas model, the figure has been given Hoakser’s usual high quality mix of sculpting, melting, distressing and hand painting to create the meticulously weathered and beat-up train you see above. As with Adam Pratt’s past “Thomas the Rage Engine” custom, the shock factor of seeing the much loved children’s character out of context still remains, the sculpted black eyes a particularly clever touch… Measuring 16cm in length, 15cm tall, and is 9.5cm wide, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine has just been added to the Hoakser Etsy store, priced at just £69.99 plus postage… Stay tuned for more Hoakser customs later in the week!


MAN-E-NEWS// Adam Pratt’s ‘Thomas the Rage Engine’ for the Candy-Coated Custom Show…

Stepping up his custom game once again, Adam Pratt shares with us his entry for the upcoming Candy-Coated Custom Show (find out more here)- the awe-inspiring ‘Thomas the Rage Engine’! Featuring the iconic British steam train kit-bashed with a Dust Walker amongst a host of other pieces, the beautifully finished figure comes with a stunning paint job faithful to both sources; marrying the primary blues and reds of Thomas with the gritty, weathered aesthetic of DUST. Available to purchase at the Tenacious Toys x London Candy Co. show (opening April 21st) for an undisclosed price, the Fat Conductor’s worst nightmare will be making an appearance alongside works from the likes of  Jon Malmstedt, Rsin, JC Rivera, Cris Rose and Richard Page.
