MAN-E-NEWS// The Dominant Species Part 5: Leather Back custom from Hoakser…

The first of 3 new additions to the Dominant Species series, Leather Back is the latest custom from UK based graffiti artist, Hoakser. Towering above Jack, Why Front, Polkadot and Unknown, Leather Back was originally an Incredible Hulk figure, that with hours of burning, sculpting, spraying, and brushing has become one of Hoakser’s strongest customs to date. Coming with his own dioramic plinth (replete with the remains of his last opponent!), Leather Back will be available alongside his 4 brothers on the Hoakser eBay store soon. Expect news on the remaining cast of the Dominant Species (the Medic and Three Fourths) to follow next week…

“This is Leatherback, wounded in battle, he had his arm pulled off, but don’t worry it will grow back…He used to be an Incredible Hulk figure who was  missing an arm already,he was given to me by a friend..After hours of work, he is now the biggest member of the crew with the most muscle..”- Hoakser


Update// The Dominant Species from Hoakser…

Revealed in the Tru:Teknology Files a couple of weeks back, Hoaker’s Dominant Species custom wrestler figures are now available to purchase through his store here. Both standing at around 16cm tall, “Jack” and “Why Front?” come with 9 points of articulation for your posing pleasure…

Priced at £69.99 and £64.99 respectively, each figure comes with their own hand drawn sketch/piece that can be customised to order if you so wish. Check them out now- they’re not going to be around for long!

Union Jack was the first one I finished, he’s proud to be British and everything he sprays comes from inside..I handpainted him with acylics, after burning and mutilating him badly.. Something as graffiti artists we always try to do – burn toys!

Why front? Comes complete with a hand drawn illustration and certificate,  and is a completely unique model..to see how I made these figures check my blog post here.. He has loads of detail, including some nike trainers, battle damage and loads of gore.. -Hoakser
