untitled-11

Having graced countless indie toy releases with his unmistakable art over the past couple of years, we were very pleased to see that Gabe Hernandez aka Worthy Enemies has finally set about creating his own figure… taking on the one and only ball of flesh known as “Belial” from cult horror flick, Basket Case! Beautifully sculpted by Gabe in a style very similar to his artwork, Duane Bradley’s twisted twin has been cast up by none other than Tim Stephson in a tan colored resin, coming with minimal hand painted detailing on the face. Limited to an edition of just 31 figures – each coming packed with a signedheader and bio card from Gabe – Belial will be touching down in the Worthy Enemies store this Saturday, January 23rd at Noon for $30 plus shipping…

Aaron Moreno aka Retroband has just revealed that the latest member of the hugely popular GPK-inspired Retroband Kids series – Creepy Kevin – will be making his debut very soon! Pictured here receiving his silicone bath ahead of resin production, the 2″ figure follows a similar cult-horror theme as the previous 3 releases, this time around parodying the classic Night of the Creeps to hilarious effect. Due to come hand cast and painted by the artist, we suspect that the little guy will be presented in a similar way as before, coming mounted on a Garbage Pail Kid style trading card with blister bubble. News on the release is still thin on the ground at the moment, but you can guarantee that the second we hear anything, you guys will be the first in the know…
