Nu:Synth Initiative - A new action figure collaboration project from 1000toys!

Japanese toy maker 1000toys is proud to announce the launch of the Nu:Synth Initiative - an artist collaboration series in 1/12 scale. This new line of action figures takes characters designed by independent toy artists and melds them with the super-articulated body of the 6-inch Synthetic Human figure to create a bold range of new and exciting action figures. Nu:Synth Initiative series one includes collaborations with renowned YouTubers Toy Pizza, veteran toymaker Mori Katsura of RealxHead, and indie action figure pioneer Matt Doughty of Onell Design. The target date for the initial figures in series one is November 2017 with additional colorways of the figures to follow. Stay tuned to 1000toys social media feeds for availability and release dates. First up... Next Man Synth | RealxHead • Mori Katsura is the man behind RealxHead and has been making Japanese Sofubi (soft vInyl) toys since 2003. His designs have always had a strong tokusatsu (Japanese live-action) hero influence. Next Man was the final character released in his seminal Mutant Zone series back in 00’s and has since made many appearances in various guises in RealxHead’s larger scale Chaosman line of figures. At the Five Points Festival 1000toys unveiled the sculpt for the nu:synth initiative version of the character - Next Man Synth. More accessories and colorways to be revealed.

Knights of the Synth | Toy PizzaToy Pizza was born from Jesse DeStasio and Nicky Fung arguing about what the greatest action figure ever created was and evolved into a YouTube Channel dedicated to all things toys & collectibles. Their nu:synth figure brings their popular Knights of the Slice line to this exciting form factor. At the Five Points Festival, we unveiled prototypes in 4 color variations: Lime, Brick, Teal and Black. The Brick version is currently available for pre-order from the Toy Pizza web shop with more to come.

GlyoSynth | Onell DesignOnell Design is an independent toy company and artist collective. Founder Matt Doughty developed the Glyos Joint system to create an original building system. His own line of Glyos figures debuted at San Diego Comic con in 2007 and the Glyos Joint system is now shared across over 20 independently created toy lines that can all be mixed and matched. Stay tuned for the unveiling of the Onell Design entry to the nu:synth initiative line-up.
