MAN-E-NEWS// The “Despair” rubber mini figure from Adam Quesnell and Stand Up! Records…

IMG_3813

“Despair is a demon from the 10th Circle of Hell; the level where people who make bad cinematic adaptations of classic toy properties are flayed for eternity. Not your average demon, Despair suffers from severe anxiety disorder and crippling depression. Satan himself even banished Despair from Hell for being a major bummer…

Cast out upon the earth in a fiery geyser of lava and tears, Despair landed in the parking lot of a comedy club that was hosting a weekly open mic night.  Despair put his name on the sign-up sheet, got on stage, and told his story. Since then, he has been punishing himself, night after night, on comedy stages of varying quality throughout the Midwest. He dances and lashes himself for audiences with hopes of selling t-shirts and CDs to drunk people who will not wear or listen to them.”

To celebrate the recent release of his album “Can We Afford This Much Despair?” on Stand Up! Records, comedian and avid toy collector Adam Quesnell has teamed up with illustrator Terence Brown II, October Toys, and our very own Tru:Tek of the Disart Toylabs to bring you the 3″ rubber toy of your saddest nightmares… Behold, DESPAIR! Standing at around 3″ of 100% UV resistant rubber, the super squishy figure was designed by Terrance and sculpted by the OT team, coming cast in a multitude of colors and finishes by Tru:Tek (M.U.S.C.L.E flesh pictured). Set to drop during Halloween at the end of next month, be sure to stay tuned for a 360 reveal, a full list of colorways, pricing and availability soon…

10616859_835474243164525_1005512722_n

With SGTCC opening it’s doors tomorrow morning, master toy maker Daniel Yu has just revealed a whole slew of figures that he’ll have up for grabs at booth AA90! To all those lucky enough to be able to attend this weekend, here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll be able to pick up…

The Footmen “Neon Tribes”- Previously featured here last week, Daniel’s latest custom Playmobil figure takes direct inspiration from the 1989 TMNT cartoon’s Foot Soldier minions – more accurately the Playmate action figure interpretations – featuring the same instantly recognisable hooded ninja design, albeit with Daniel’s super-fine attention to form and texture. Produced in a flurry of mixed neon resin parts and coming with neo magnet articulation, these will be up for grabs as singles (price TBC), or as a 7 piece “Super Set”, coming with an extra “shadow” Footman and retro mutagen canister!

Metalhead “Blind Anarchy”- Daniel’s other all-new figure Metalhead will also be making it’s debut at the con in a special “Blind Anarchy” run. Produced in various resin finishes, including standard opaques, metallics and pearlescents, the unpainted, unarticulated figures are due to be sold randomly “blind bag” style (price TBC).

Mystery Mortis “version 2.00″- The hugely popular Mortis mini figure returns for 2 new runs at SGTCC, the first coming in the form of a follow-up to the “Mystery Mortis” release! As with Metalhead, these static, 3″ tall figures have been cast up in a variety of different resin finishes – including neons, glitters and marbles – selling randomly “blind bag” style (price TBC).

Mortis “Noir”- Joining the “Mystery” run, Daniel has prepared yet another amazing hand painted Mortis run, this time opting for a sleek film noir inspired palette of dark greys, blues and black. Likely to be limited to around 10 pieces, pricing, as with the other releases, is still to be confirmed…

Peter Kato comes with the final part of his recent trifecta of releases with the introduction of an all-new figure- The Bad Knight!

Standing at around 3.5″ tall – perfectly in scale with the Ninja-Robo – the digitally sculpted figure features a total of 7 separate parts, each coming cast by hand and individually painted by Peter himself. Debuting in a “Metallic Grey” edition of just 8 pieces, each knight is set to come packed in a custom screen printed box (pictured below), priced at just $40 plus shipping.

Screen Shot 2014-09-01 at 12.36.14

As promised in our reveal of the Footmen last week, we bring you yet another mini figure that artist Daniel Yu will be debuting at SGTCC this coming weekend (9/6-9/7)… the awesome Metalhead! Once again using the trusted Playmobil figure as a base for his creation, Daniel’s beautifully sculpted figure takes elements from punk and metal – a common feature in Daniel’s work – infusing them with the mask of the Fanastic Four’s iconic arch-nemesis to dazzling effect. Standing at around 3″ tall and coming with magnetic articulation in the arms, the resin cast figure (proto pictured) is likely to follow a similar path to the Footmen; with a blank, mixed-part edition debuting at the con, and a hand painted run following soon after… Expect the full lowdown on all of Daniel’s SGTCC exclusives later in the week…
