Metacrypt's Shub Zeroth Release.13 [Astrotype] {Apollo} !!!

It's here... the newest fully painted edition of Brian Ewing and Justin "Hateball" Jewett's Metacrypt creature… "Shub Zeroth!" in the all new [Astrotype] {Apollo} edition! Standing 9-inches tall, this version of the Lovecraftian horror is back from the dead in an exclusive "Release.13 [Astrotype] {Apollo}" that is cast in crisp white and painted in bright red, metallic silver, gold, and blue, and deepest, darkest black. This figure comes packaged in an astronaut bag with a special silk-screened foil header, and a 1.25", double-posted mission pin. Snag him up HERE right now for $135 a pop!

Is it kaiju? It is crazy? Is it checking out its own ass? EatCidPeeCid x FlabSlab's "Crab Boi!"

From our understanding, FlabSlab tasked Zhou Jiajun (EatCidPeeCid) with designing some "ugly ass figures" for them, the first result of the digitally sculpted worked being the pictured "Crab Boi." A complete 360° from Jiajun's normal "cute" style, it does employ her rather irreverent sense of humor and aesthetics, culminating in a fantastical anthropormorphic crab creature that I can't stop starring at. Seriously, those exagerated appendages are mesmerizing! Of course, this reveal doesn't mean that FlabSlab will be producing the piece, but if you are smitten with the concept then you should let them know… if enough people write in then we just might have a "Crab Boi" release in our future!

Batman, Superman & Wonder Woman "XXRay" Versions in Copper Edition!

The trinity of the DC Universe, the backbone of the Justice League, arguably the most recognizable superheroes in the world: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. It's no wonder that this trio of character's formed the initial officially licensed DC Comics "XXRay" line releases by Mighty Jaxx. But while the full-color versions are just starting to land in the States, why not release an online exclusive "Copper Edition" to really get people's attention? No reason that I can think of! Designed in a cartoonish manner by illustrator Ben Qwek and sculptor Adam Tan, the designer toy highlight of these 4-inch tall PVC pieces is the quarter-cut dissection element courtesy of Jason Freeny. And, of course, these metallic colored versions really give the non-articulated pieces the feel of statues, dedications to the heroic efforts of these characters. Releasing this upcoming weekend (June 25th or 26th, 2016) on the XXRay.com website, we expect they will retail for around $20 to $25 apiece and will be limited to only a few hundred copies produced.

Mame Moyashi's Crustacean Kaiju Horror "BADASS" is Coming…

When the trio of artists collectively known as Mame Moyashi (producer Clinton Kenny, designer Chino Lam, and sculptor Seanjob) debuted their "MAGURO" figure our breath was taken away. To come out of the gate with such a strong design is a rarity, but it doesn't appear to be an aberration for them… Teased above is their forthcoming second figure, "BADASS," which appears to be a crustacean-based evolution of the "MAGURO" concept. Wearing similar geta (wooden sandal) footwear, we assume this piece is similarly sized (4¾-inches tall), will be produced in vinyl, and probably will express a similar dark humor as the original: a depiction of a true culinary master who is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for his customers, feeding parts of himself to them. With his cracked claw showing, it seems these are safe assumptions, though we await a full reveal to see the extent of his self-inflicted damage fully.

Hordak Gets His Horde! Toy Aisle Custom × mkultra's "Horde Demon" Figures!

While Hordak and his Evil Horde might've been more closely associated with She-Ra than He-Man, they still were some of my favorite Masters of the Universe villains. But, aside from his robotic Horde Troopers, one always had to wonder what legions of soldiers Hordeworld produced… Well, wonder no more! MOTU focused artists Toy Aisle Customs and mkultra have collaborated on some horrid beasts known as "Horde Demons." As their fiction backstory for the creatures goes:
Created long ago by Hordak in his lab, Horde Demons are now numerous among the Horde's ranks. Hordak made them in his image to be chaos spreaders in battle, in which they revel. Unbeknownst to all except Shadow Weaver and Hordak himself, these demons are also used to spy and report on other Horde members.
Standing 3½-inches tall, these original sculpt beasts have been cast in resin and hand-painted by the artists. Limited to 5 numbered copies, we can't imagine these $40 apiece works will be available for long, so make sure you contact mkultra through his Facebook account to secure one of these wonderfully nasty critters.
