scrapedxhoodslam

Scraped Resin has joined forces with Oakland’s most intoxicated pro-wrestling/performance-art spectacle, HOODSLAM!  A whole series of resin bootleg figures based off Hoodslam’s f’ed-up cast of psychotic wrestlers is planned, kicking off at Hoodslam’s December show: The Non Denominational Winter Season Celebrational Festivity…of Doom….. Dos!  The first bootleg, kitbashed from a variety of 90’s action figures, will be The Dark Sheik. Coming in an edition of 8, with both ‘flesh’ and ‘black’ colourways chosen based on fan votes at Hoodslams FB page, these 3.75″ figures are due to come bagged with a custom Hoodslam header for $20 each as part of Scraped Resin’s Gram Slammers: Twenty Sack Wrestlers series. Due to touch down at the show this Saturday, December 7th, any remaining pieces will be headed to the Hoodslam store soon after.

MAN-E-NEWS// BIG-MAN Keshi: Wave 1 from Bigman Toys…

Previously featured here a couple of weeks back, Bigman Toys’ Jumbo-Kaggra custom keshi is set to be joined by another 3 figures for the first official wave of BIG-MAN Keshi! Priced at just £5 ($8) per figure, these guys are available in “all the colours of the ‘bow” (opaque only), by hitting Bigman up directly at happyburbridge@googlemail.com. Here’s a quick rundown on the awesome newcomers-

Micro-Keshi// Easily our favourite of the trio, Micro-Keshi combines Bigman’s love of Micronauts and M.U.S.C.L.E with flair. Based on the Time Traveler design, the figure comes with a TT head, boots, and the best part… a removable chest plate than can be interchanged with the original toys! A truly brilliant mash-up…

Battle-Bride// “Jilted at the altar, mutated by sheer rage. Lucy Silverstein, 28, went on a one woman lifestyle quest of constant battle everywhere, all the time, when her dreams of matrimony were dashed. Maybe one day she will find the man who abandoned her, and rest. Until then, this barefoot buff battling beauty, is out for blood!”. With female characters almost non-existent in M.U.S.C.L.E, this rather top-heavy warrior makes a refreshing change to the usual customs. Coming bagged and tagged, Bigman has gone for an awesome  90’s “dojinshi” influenced design for the headers…

Men-Man// “When is a man more than a man? When he’s several!! It’s Men-man! Gifted and cursed with the power of group rationality, group indecisiveness, and two lazer axes He roams the galaxy, never able to settle, often making absolutely no difference for hundreds of years”. On receiving a Roboblinks/Blockman Pilot a while back, Bigman decided to work on a bigger figure (2″) that incorporated the micros, the result being Men-Man! Staying true to the 80’s Macross/Dougram/Diaclone aesthetic, Bigman will be revealing header art for this little guy soon…


MAN-E-NEWS// Jumbo-Kaggra custom keshi from Big Man Toys…

Continuing our look into the world of keshi/M.U.S.C.L.E in the build up to ‘Ed Skworm and Min-E-Face‘s release next month, we bring you Jumbo-Kaggra, a stunning keshi from UK based Big Man Toys. Based on the real-life wrestler of the same name, the custom figure comes complete with the infamous spiked mask worn by both Kaggra and Jumbo Kaggra. Originally sold in limited quantities online and a various wrestling shows, the final run of figures can now be acquired through the LittleRubberGuys thread here. Priced at just £5 each plus shipping, be sure to head over to the site quick… the mould is said to only have around 20 good pulls left before it’s scrapped forever. It’s important to note that the figure is available in pretty much any colour you desire, just hit up Big Man with your request (we’re plumping for flesh!)…


MAN-E-NEWS// The latest Dominant Species customs from Hoakser…

Swiftly following the reveal of the latest batch of Gundam Graff Bombers, UK based graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to announce 3 new additions to the Dominant Species family, The Medic, Three Fourths, and Calvin ‘The Cutter’ Klein. As with previous figures in the series, this trio of cyborg urban alchemists have been created through hours of painstaking modification, sculpting and painting. Standing at around 16cm tall, the fully articulated ex-wrestlers will be available alongside the other 5 Dominant Species from Hoakser’s eBay store later today, with prices starting from just £40 plus shipping. Click through to the Hoakser blog for more information…

Backstory:

The Medic// Even though (the Dominant Species) feel no pain, and have limbs that grow back, they are prone to catching colds from late night painting in all weathers.. The medic is on stand by to unblock any bunged up nozzles or severed flow tubes..

Three Fourths// He’s lucky number 7, the seventh member dedicated to an art form starting with the seventh letter..And what does 3 + 4 make?

Calvin “The Cutter” Klein// Calvin “The Cutter” Klein is the guy who gains access to all those locked train yards..The chainsaw isn’t there for violent reasons,he’s an artist not a serial killer.. He mainly uses it to cut holes in fences, scribe walls and scratch out rival tags..


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


MAN-E-NEWS// The Dominant Species Part4: ‘Unknown’ from Hoakser…

Hot off the heels of last weeks reveal of Polkadot, Hoakser brings the latest addition to the Dominant Species in the form of ‘Unknown”. Differing from his pant wearing sidekicks,  the 16cm tall custom wrestling figure has been spared his dignity, sporting a sweet t-shirt and shorts combo instead. Burned, brushed and sprayed to perfection, Unknown (alongside  “Union Jack”“Whyfront?” and “Pokadot”) is currently available in the Hoakser store for £69.99 plus shipping. Anyone purchasing the figure will also be treated to an original customised sketch, plus certificate of authenticity…


The Dominant Species: Polkadot custom toy from Hoakser…

Ok, one last post whilst we gear up for the switch on Monday!

Polkadot is the latest custom graffiti figure to drop from UK artist Hoakser’s Dominant Species range (originally posted here). Joining both Union Jack and Why Not? into the fray, the heavily customised wrestling figure stands at around 16cm tall, coming with a whopping 9 points of articulation.

Available to purchase now for £64.99 plus shipping at the Hoakser shop, Polkadot will wing his way to one lucky collector with a personalised Hoakser sketch and certificate of authenticity. Anyone interested should hit the store now, Polkadot wont be around for long!

Thanks to Hoakser for the heads up!
