Wasting no time since the debut of the WOTU (Wrestlers of the Universe) customs a couple of weeks back, the guys over at Goodleg Toys are proud to reveal the very first test shots for the second part of the series… the hand cast resin variants! Unlike the previous one-off releases, Goodleg plan on producing each of these guys in a variety of different colourways, with editions likely to be limited to around 5-10 each. 4 figures have been planned for the initial release; The Spike, Razor Beast, Dead DieBia$e and Warhoard (not pictured), each due to come bagged and headed with artwork from Ralph Niese… No news on pricing or exact release dates, so be sure to stay locked on the Goodleg Toys Facebook page here for further developments soon.
Bringing yet another awesome MOTU inspired release to the table, Goodleg Toys are proud to announce that the previously featured Wrestlers of the Universe (WOTU) line is finally up for grabs! Starting with the ‘custom’ releases, the guys have released several one-off pieces including Dead Diebia$e, Evilgrip, Million Dollar Arm and British Eyefrog (pictured), each coming kit-bashed from both vintage WWF and MOTU lines, and finished in a suitably garish bootleg style sprays of silver and red. Bagged with hilarious header art from highly talented illustrator Ralph Niese, the super limited figures are available from the Goodleg Toys store (link to follow) now… Stay tuned for news on the resin cast editions soon!
Following our look at the ‘Wrestlers of the Universe’ yesterday, Berlin based Goodleg Toys are proud to present yet another promising custom bootleg series… War on Prehis! A self indulgent fusion of cyborgs, zombies and pre-historic beasts (come on, what’s not to like out of that mix?!), the line is set to feature numerous neo-vintage style resin figures infused with elements from the likes of MOTU, Zoids and Dino Riders. Hand cast and painted, the first in the line is due to come in the form of the pictured test-pull ‘Drone’ figure, with a proposed drop date of Spring 2013… We’ll be bringing you more news as soon as we get it, but in the meantime, head over to the WoP Facebook page here for a closer look of what’s in store.
Fellow toy blogger Luke Toywalker reveals details of his latest custom bootleg series, WOTU: Wrestlers of the Universe! A mash-up of 2 of the 80’s most iconic action figure lines, Mattel’s MOTU and Hasbro’s WWF Wrestlers, the set of 4 figures; The Razor Beast, Warhoard, Greg “The Spike” Supercrime, and Dead DieBia$e (pictured from left to right) feature the classic disproportionate wrestler bodies paired with some of our favourite MOTU’s head sculpts. Due to be released under the new Goodleg Toys banner, WOTU will be available in both ‘custom’ and ‘cast’ editions, whereby collectors can choose either a one-off kit-bash complete with original articulation -or- a neo-vintage style resin recast that will be coming in a variety of different colourways including ‘shiny silver’ and ‘purple diamond’… Set for release at some point in January, we suggest keeping track of the dedicated Facebook page here for any further developments. Luke has also revealed another project in the form of the War on Prehis line, so be sure to come back tomorrow for the full lowdown!
