Originally revealed here as a finished clay-prototype way back in May of last year, the “Sergei the Sturgeon” Mutant Bastard action figure from Dr Death is finally seeing the light of day courtesy of Goodleg Toys! A follow-up to 2013’s incredible “Mutant Steve”, the latest Mutant Bastard borrows heavily from the early 90′s Playmates aesthetic to dazzling affect, coming with all the crazy details and balanced asymmetry that made the likes of TMNT and the Toxic Crusaders such a success in their heyday. Standing at an authentically scaled 5.5″ tall and coming with articulation in the head, tail and arms, the beautifully sculpted piece has been hand cast in resin and treated to an eye-catching, 90’s-style paint app. Due to be making his debut in the Goodleg store soon, look out for full release details for Sergei over the next couple of weeks!

Limited to an edition of 5 pieces, just 2 remain; a standard version for $70 and another, coming packed with a 10″ x 12″ Krang canvas, for $100. Head over to the Bigmantoys store here to check them out before they quickly disappear…

As huge fans of the cult 1970’s Ooze-It doll, we couldn’t help but smile when we saw the latest custom bootleg action figure from Monster Island, the hilariously titled Secrets of the Ooze!

Whilst the fate of the figure still remains uncertain, we’re putting our money on the slimy chap making his first appearance at Clutter’s upcoming InAction Figure 3 show next month.
