Rob and Luke Triclops at the Toy Shack in Walthomstowe Indoor Market 28/3/14

We’ll FINALLY be returning to our regular news posts tomorrow (thanks for your patience over the last few days guys!), but first we bring you a mini report on the hottest new toy joint in the UK… Walthamstow’s Toy Shack! Brainchild of Triclops Studio‘s Luc and Rob Clops, the incredible space recently opened it’s doors at the Wood Street Indoor Market in North London, catering to both children and adults alike with one of the most impressive collections of 80s/90s/00s classics and obscurities we’ve ever had the luck to stumble across.

Featuring the likes of iconic gross-out lines Toxic Crusaders, Food Fighters and Madballs, rare knock-offs including the Sungold Monsters and Pocket Beasts, sought after minis such as Wrestlers In My Pocket, Mini Boglins and Body Wars, plus a number of the guys’ own products from their illustrious time in the industry, the mesmerising shop offers a fascinating insight into the Triclops aesthetic, and more importantly, shows the poor, toy starved kids of today how good things used to be!

MAN-E-NEWS// The “Junk Truck” Micro B.A.S.T.A.R.D from Triclops Studio…

IMG_20140404_141155

Following our exclusive reveal of mega-collaboration Tanklopula yesterday, the guys over at Triclops Studio have unveiled yet another exclusive figure they’ll be carting along to ToyCon UK next Saturday, the “Junk Truck” Micro B.A.S.T.A.R.D! As with the previously featured “Dum-Dum”, the tiny little guy has been created from a mix of original sculpting and mini figure mashing, resulting in one seriously pumped little guy- in both the bicep and trouser department it would seem! Coming cast in a mix of marbled resins for the release, the limited batch of just 5 Junk Trucks will be ups for grabs at the Tarantulas booth in the morning and the Unbox booth from 2pm onwards. All left overs will be up for sale online in the B.A.S.T.A.R.D store shortly afterwards…


MAN-E-XCLUSIVE// The ToyCon UK exclusive Tanklopula keshi revealed…

TANKLOPULA PROMO 2

Joining the slew of exclusive kaiju, sofubi and keshi that’ll be up for grabs at the Rampage Toys x Disarticulators ToyCon UK booth next Saturday, our very own Tru:Tek is proud to reveal the resurrection of one of the craziest ever resin figures in keshi form… the mighty Tanklopula! The brainchild of Triclops, Jesse Destasio and The Tarantulas, the Rampage sculpted mini figure features signature elements from all 3 artists, including tentacles, a Nibbler chest piece and Tankhead turret- all coming fitted with fully interchangeable, 100% Glyos compatible joints. Originally making a very limited appearance back in 2011, the latest (and most likely final) run has been produced in a urethane rubber courtesy of Tru:Tek, with the batch of 15 each coming in a special one-off colorway inspired by a wide variety of 80s and 90s pop culture. Touching down exclusively at the Rampage/DA booth (#16) come opening time at 9am, Tanklopula has been priced at £35 a piece. Stay tuned for details of online sales, plus AP releases from both Destasio and Triclops soon!

Joining the “Killer Tomatoes” Disarticulator collab revealed last week (more on that later this week!), the guys over at Triclops Studio have just revealed the first of a whole slew on new B.A.S.T.A.R.D figures planned for ToyCon UK next week, the adorable Dum-Dum! The first in the guys’ sub-line of micro-sized figures, the Boglin inspired piece appears to have been sculpted on top of a dummy bullet, standing at little over 1″ tall. Pictured here as a fully primed proto ready for casting, we’ll be on the lookout for a full reveal over the next couple of days. Keep track of the Triclops blog here for more details soon…

slashed BASTARD b

In true January style, the guys over at Triclops have just announced a whacking great B.A.S.T.A.R.D sale! Running right through until the end of the month, all products from their hugely popular bootleg line, including resin, rubber and vinyl, have been slashed in price by a whopping 50% off retail (yep, just £15 for a full size Peenut!). Making way for a whole heap of new figures over the coming year, we suggest heading over to the B.A.S.T.A.R.D store ASAP to check out what’s on offer- remaining stock is already disappearing faster than you can shout “BASTARDS”!!!

As if yesterday’s Pine Danglin’ mini figure set wasn’t enough to get you in the mood for the holidays, the guys over at Triclops have not one, but two festive B.A.S.T.A.R.D releases dropping in-store this Friday, December 13th at 3pm London time! First up we have the Ballock Baulbles… Teased here last month, the Boglin inspired Ballock returns for his latest B.A.S.T.A.R.D outing, with the 2″ mini coming cast in a green resin, with handpainted detailing, a custom Christmas hat and a tag to hang the little bugger on a tree.  Edition size on these remains unconfirmed, but with a price tag of just £12 each, we can’t see them lasting long… Next, we have the return of the latest B.A.S.T.A.R.D release, the Venice Hulkin’ B.A.S.T.A.R.D twin pack! Featuring designs from both Triclops and The Tarantulas/Ralph Niese, the pair come in a slightly different colourway from the ‘sunburnt’ originals, with Beef Cake sporting a tan-less flesh tone, whilst Final Boss takes on the green of the Hulk. Limited to just 5 sets this time around, the twin pack will be up for grabs in the store alongside the baulbles for just £25 plus shipping…
