Winson Ma – Otto Apexplorer 1:6 (Ice & Color)
Rugged Adventure, Fierce Apes, and hyper realistic weapons and gear – that’s what Apexplorers from legendary HK 1:6 designer Winson Ma is all about. The newest addition to the long-running line, is Otto. Once a solider, this proud eskimo adventurer is ready to pursue his mission of saving wildlife with a full loadout of gear featuring a pack, shovel, binoculars, ice axe, sniper rifle and more – all in incredible detail including furry, imitation polar bear fur pants. With the introduction of Otto, production of the Apexlorer line has shifted from Hot Toys to Soldier Story, known for their 1:6 figures.
Otto is available for pre-order (thru 4.27.14) in two editions –the Ice edition w/blue gear and the Color edition w/orange gear. For orders outside of Asia, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

MAD – 70MM Production Sample Mini MAD*L
Not quite standard size, not quite micro, MAD looks to be working on a new 70MM Mini MAD*L, which is roughly half the size of the standard 5”. So far these look good to us! We’re wondering if these will only be available in solid colors, or perhaps a mini blind box series?! Let’s hope this is for the mini series we’ve been anticipating for the longest time!
