Yep, yet more from Paul Kaiju today, as the artist teases a new upgrade to his hugely popular MR REE figure, the Fungus Boxer! Based on Paul’s original 2010 resin of the same name, the latest version of REE is set to come with a new mask/helmet, arm gauntlet and torso on top of the original designs already hefty assortment. Currently in the moulding stages as we speak, expect this little guy to be packing a fungal-punch for future MR REE releases soon!

Following a hugely successful debut release at Wonderfestival last month (check our full report here), Nerdone has just revealed that the M.O.T.U.L.O.S sofubi playest is due to return soon in an all-new colourway! Whilst little is known about the release at present, we can confirm that the MOTU x Neclos mash-up is due to come cast in a crystal clear soft vinyl, presumably packed with the original’s awesome keshi companion and mini missile launcher accessory. Interested parties can keep track of the Nerdone IG feed here for details on the release soon- fingers crossed they’ll be a little easier to come by in the West this time!

MAN-E-REPORT// Nerdone Wonderfestival booth recap (and the M.O.T.U.L.O.S sofubi)…

With the hype surrounding the release of the M.O.T.U.L.O.S sofubi reaching fever pitch last week, it came as no surprise to find the Paralyzing Toys Wonderfestival booth swamped upon Nerdone‘s arrival early afternoon. Bringing along a selection of past figures, including a new mini run of Tarman bootlegs plus a new batch of Steregon keshi, the real star of the show was of course the aforementioned tiny green castle. Drawing inspiration from both Neclos Fortress and MOTU, the 3.5″ tall piece had been cast in mint green similar to the original Castle Greyskull playset, complete with subtle dark green/brown sprays and silver hand painted detailing… But that wasn’t all! Taking the recent Tarman sofubi/rubber concept one step further, the figure also played host to an original MOTU/Neclos inspired keshi, PLUS a mini missile shooter to topple the little guy off the castle! Easily stored in the underside, these 2 extra additions really did help to make M.O.T.U.L.O.S one of the funnest releases we saw at the event- and at just 4,200yen ($41), it was one of the biggest bargains of the day too! Unfortunately limited to just 15 pieces this time around, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a bigger release soon…
