The release will take place on Friday, March 20th at 12PM PST online and at both store locations in San Francisco and San Diego.

Rocketboy x Bold Machines – Nohwitz 3D Printed Figure

NOHWITZ

For the past six months, Rocketboy has been working with 3D printing accelerator/evangelist Bold Machines on Nohwitz, a spunky new art toy. Inspired by the annoying know-it-all coworker who is in fact clueless, Nohwitz will be produced by Mold Machines as a fully 3D-printed run.   Designed as a 3D model, the figure includes three different hand options (hands, tentacles, and hooves) and three tooth options (molars, fangs, and tusks).

Look for a May release of a hand-painted original colorway edition (above) as well as a custom show.  For those of you looking to paint one of these, Rocketboy is considering a small DIY edition as well.

We’re excited by the toy and the possibility of  3D printing as a truly viable production choice for low-run art toys.

Huck Gee – New Mech and Skull Leader Photo Contest

11015544_793164024097064_1269017025_n

Now that Huck Gee has shipped all of his amazing Skull Leader pieces to collectors, he’s giving those collectors a chance to win one of his brand new upcoming mechs.  If you’ve got a Skull Leader, take a creative picture of it and post it to instagram with the #skulleader hashtag by Monday March 23rd 2015.

The winning entry will score one of Huck’s new “Gulf” mechs based on the oh-so-cool Zentradi Officer’s Battle Pod. The new edition features a racing inspired design bearing a #23 Skullhead logo on the hood and a Gulf oil logo on the side. Perhaps we’ll see additional livery pieces featuring additional emblems of legendary racing sponsors. Speaking of branding, notice anything missing or different?  This new mech is a from-scratch sculpt, not a custom of a Dunny or other KR figure.

huxley

Awwww. Isn’t Huxley adorable?  Cameron Tiede will release the next all-natural wood figure from his Wood Candy Workshop brand on Tuesday, March 31st 2015.  While Cameron is keeping some of Huxley under wraps (or is that under muslin bag), what we can see of him, especially the floppy ears, is quite promising. Also, It looks like Huxley (apparently an edition of 48) will ship with a numbered wood tag—very cool! Be sure to check out the previous teasers in our first Huxley post, if you missed it, for a few more clues.

silver_oozeball

The Disarticulators are following up their Vintage OG Oozeball sofubi which was released at Wonderfest Winter 2015, with the new Vintage OG Silver edition.  The new edition swaps out the gold spray details for silver spray on the same squishy “Oooze-it Green” soft vinyl with hidden squeaker as the Wonderfest edition.

Slightly larger at 3” than the keshi version (2”, 2014) which inspired it, the Oozeball sofubi—designed by Tru:Tek and sculpted Zectron—features a more organic sculpt which pays homage to Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon (1902), as well as Ooze-it and Madballs.

Limited to just 15 pieces, The Vintage OG Silver Oozeball drops on Thursday, March 12th 2015 at 2 PM PDT for $50 (+s/h) from the Man-E Toys webshop.
