Swiftly following the awesome ‘Ate the Wrong Mushroom’ sculpt we posted last week, Chris Moore of We Become Monsters is proud to present yet another upcoming exhibition piece, this time around for Killer Bootlegs‘ ‘Toys Are Us’ group show… Entitled ‘Brasscoat Dimension Hopper’, the articulated resin figure stands at an impressive 5.5″ tall, coming with a unique coating of brass powder and black shoe polish. Limited to just one piece for this initial release, Chris has stated that we’ll be seeing a number of variants in the WBM store throughout spring… Expect details on those as soon as we hear anything!
In association with Killer Bootlegs and Monster Kolor, the “Toys Are Us” group art show will be taking place at the Rockford Art Deli between April 5th-6th. Head over to the dedicated web page here for more details…

“Amanita Must Scare Ya, commonly known as the maggot agaric (pron.: /ˈæɡərɪk/) or zombie amanita (pron.: /ˌæməˈnaɪtə/), is a reanimorphic and psychoactive necromycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita. Native throughout the temperate and boreal regions of northern Transylvania, Amanita Must Scare Ya has been unintentionally introduced to many countries in the southern hemisphere, generally as a symbiont with morgues and cemeteries, and is now a true cosmopolitan species…”
Originally created as part of the Dead Hand x Tenacious Toys Resin is King: Series 2, Chris Moore over at WeBecomeMonsters has just revealed that his “Amanita Must Scare Ya” Death Cap resin is now set for it’s first stand-alone release! Standing at around 3″ tall, Chris will be offering up 3 different versions of the figure across and edition of 26; 4 Glow-in-the-dark, 4 cold-cast bronze and 18 one-off colourways. Priced at just $25, $45 and $22 respectively, the little guys will be hitting the WBM store on Thursday, March 7th at Noon Eastern time… Chris has stated that all orders will also include a completely FREE micro resin SLAB (whilst stocks last), plus entry into the random drawings for a full sized version!
Taking one of our favourite Motorbot resins from the past year, the 2-headed zombie ‘Zed’, Chris of We Become Monsters has transformed the piece into an awesome, aquatic, tentacled nightmare… presenting the Zedtopus! Stripped of it’s original mossy finish, the 2.5″ mini figure comes with a newly acquired set of sculpted tentacles, painted in Chris’signature grimy palette and finished with a definition-popping black rub. Available through the WBM store right here, Zedtopus can be yours for just $35 plus shipping.
It’s been a little quiet over at We Become Monsters for a while, but with Halloween approaching tonight and the WBM containment fields falling (!), Chris Moore has no choice but to release a slew of new creatures upon the unsuspecting art toy community! Featuring a quite simply staggering array of customs, all-new resins, plus a whole host of returning WBM favourites including 3″ and 6″ versions of the Death Door, Ghasps and Necrolameicons, all have been finished in a variety of different colours including the rather impressive looking cold cast bronze editions. With prices ranging from just $3 up to $90 for the more substantial custom pieces, there really is something for all lovers of resin. Expect all the pictured goodies (plus a whole lot more!) to hit the WBM store at some point later today (October 31st)… On top of all the Halloween madness, the WBM Galaxy Frankenstein Bust competition will also be closing at 12pm tonight. Each 2″ mini-bust sale gives the purchaser a chance at winning a larger, fully painted, quarter scale figure, so be sure to get your order in today if you’re interested! Around 20 are left in stock at the time of writing…
Fresh from the huge success that was “The Rise of the Samhain“, Jeff Beck over at Menace Inc teases us with the first promo image from the studio’s debut collaborative art toy project… the 7 Seals!

No news as of yet as to what will be featuring in the series (although we’re guessing wax seal designs must feature!), so be sure to stay tuned for more reveals and release info to follow very soon!
