MAN-E-NEWS// The “Two-Toned Metal Fusion” series from Peter Kato…

Fresh from the success of the Blue Harvest Sale, Peter Kato is proud to present his latest resin series, the Two-Toned Metal Fusions! Created as a sucessor to the original myplasticheart exclusive Metal Fusions, Turtle Tetsujin is joined by Fright Bite for this super-limited release. Double cast in Blue-Orange resin, Turtle Tetsujin comes complete with silver sprays and black/white hand painted detailing. Once again featuring the adorable Little Pea embedded in his chest, the little fetus has been given a sad looking expression that reflects her disapproval of Turtle Tetsujin’s change from his usual cool “blue” nature to a mad “orange” state… Priced at just $20 each, Two-Toned Metal Fusion TT has been limited to just 6 pieces… Coming in a similar double cast using a subtle mix of blue tones, the mischievous Fright Bite has been beautifully painted with metallic highlights. Limited to 8 pieces and with a price tag of just $15 each, expect to see Fright Bite alongside Turtle Tetsujin in Peter’s store this Thursday at around 6pm EST…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Blue Harvest Sale from Peter Kato…

Fresh from the beautiful amber-tinted Goldies series, Peter Kato kindly shares with us his latest batch of resins for what he calls the “Blue Harvest Sale”! Coinciding with last weekend’s Memorial celebrations, Peter has cast a variety of his most loved figures in a mixture of clear blue resins, from deep royals right through to light blue ice.

Featuring Turtle Tetsujin, Kawako, Fright Bite, Sky Baby, and our favourite, Man-Nie, Peter has reduced the standard prices on all figures for the sale; Figures that are normally $20 will be $15, figures normally $10 are $8, and $5 figures are $3… With Turtle Tetsujin coming with hand painted detailing and the embedded Pea character, we sure you’ll agree that $15 is an absolute steal! Set to drop this Thursday (May 31st) at 5pm-ish EST on Peter’s webshop (alongside a few other “blue” themed surprises!), be sure to get in quick, because these guys wont be around for long…


MAN-E-NEWS// The Goldies resin series from Peter Kato…

Following the sell-out success of the recent Hulk inspired “Smash” Turtle Tetsujin, resin wizard Peter Kato continues his bi-weekly assault on the art toy scene with his latest series, the Goldies! Cast in an intense mix of golden yellow clear resin & a drop of clear amber-ish gold tint, the 3 beautiful figures included are Kawako, Fright Bite and MAN-E-TOYS favourite, Man-Nie. Once again limited to just 8 of each, the Goldies will be available from Peter’s shop this Thursday (May 17th, 5pm-ish EST) for a remarkable $10 a piece! Be sure to keep checking the store on a regular basis, as we’re sure these amber beauties will disappear as quick as Smash!

I really happy with the intensity of the golden yellow , they feel like they were carved from fossilized amber!”Peter Kato

MAN-E-NEWS// The Green-Gold Leader Turtle Tetsujin from Peter Kato available now…
