Great Twins x Terminator 2 – T-800 Twelfth Scale Supreme Action Figure

 t-800_1

Great Twins will launch its new Twelfth Scale Supreme Action Figure series with the Terminator 2: T-800 officially licensed figure.  Capturing the realism and detail of the 1/6 genre in the more practical 1/12 scale (6”), the upcoming T-800 figure features a high-level of detail throughout from the 25 points of articulation and  impressive hand-painted head sculpt of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Terminator’s all-black PU fabric outfit and considerable arsenal of weaponry and gear. 

An excellent way to relive the classic sci-fi action film, the T-800 Twelfth Scale Supreme Action Figure includes a Terminator 2 Judgment Day display stand to complete the experience. The debut figure in this new 1/12 series is slated for release in Fall 2018 from Great Twins.

Munky King x kaNO – The Messenger Ice Edition

messenger_ice_ext_600x

Munky King has just released The Messenger Ice Edition resin figure (edition of 25, 6.5”)  on their web shop for $200.  This newest edition of the Colin Kapernick-inspired figure designed by kaNO is a low-run, premium resin edition featuring a beautiful clear frosted finish. The Ice Edition continues efforts to raise awareness and address the scourge of police brutality towards people of color, an injustice which inspired the ex-NFL Quarterback’s poignant protest of taking a knee during the national anthem prior to games.  I had a chance to see this edition up close on the episode of Toy Geeks Behind the Counter featuring MK-founder Patrick Lam and am happy to say photos hardly do it justice.  In person, it’s amazing.

Matt Gondek x Avenue de Arts x 3DRetro -- ‘Aggression’ Art Toy Aims for Fall 2018

 34687906_625749947771163_5390066884261445632_n

Whoa.  Matt Gondek’s upcoming Aggression vinyl art toy will bring the wicked vision of his original painting (2018) of the same into glorious 3D.  In development with Avenue de Arts and 3DRetro who is handling production, the figure features a gnarly sculpt with a grizzled, drippy, ‘deconstructed’ Martian ready to slay with his battered blaster. This shot of the proto has us setup for an agonizing wait for the anticipated Fall ‘18 drop. If you can’t wait, you could scour the secondary market for his limited-edition tees featuring the Aggression image in red+gray which were available exclusively at his recent Clean Break pop-up in NYC.

U: Corrected Release time. 7 PM PDT on 6.11.

It’s been while since we’ve seen a new art toy/sculpture from Gary Baseman.  Happily, the talented LA-based painter has collaborated with APPortfolio to bring his Ahwroo character to life as a polystone figure. Featured in many of his paintings, the beast contemplates a skull in its outstretched paw—perhaps the object of its affection or a moment of reflection.

Limited to 300 numbered pieces, Ahwroo stands roughly 8.2” tall (21 cm) and features a hand-painted design with varied textures for the fur and on the face. APPortfolio will release Ahwroo on Monday (6.11) at 7 PM PDT  for $340 from their web shop.

“It's Ahwroo, my vicious character that is so hungry for affection, he can draw blood and kill the object of his affection.”  [Press]

Wow.  Martian Toys is bringing the vinyl thrills with yet another original sculpt.  They will debut the Kranyus Classic Edition from Theodoru at their Five Points Festival booth [#132].  Based on the artist’s illustrations, this retro mouse mashup stands 8” tall and features eight points of articulation. That’s a lot of posability – here’s our guess: neck, shoulders, wrists, waist, and legs.   We’re looking forward to seeing this one in person.

Superplastic Announces New 8” McBess Janky

download

The Superplastic Kickstarter continues to roll and will soon pass $400K!  With the success the supply of the larger-format limited-edition rewards is dwindling. The 8” Ro-Mu-Lo Janky from El Grand Chamaco is nearly gone.  Not to worry since Superplastic has just announced and added the brand-new Oh-No! 8” Janky from McBess. Where he created a retro character for his 3” design, McBess has used the larger 8” figure as a canvas for a sprawling design with multiple symbols and sayings that flows across the toy. There’s a brand-new reward level ($110) which swaps in the new McBess for the soon to be sold out Ro-Mu-Lo. Great stuff – incredibly impressive campaign.
