MAN-E-NEWS// The Bad Knight resin mini figure from Peter Kato…

IMG_9235

Peter Kato comes with the final part of his recent trifecta of releases with the introduction of an all-new figure- The Bad Knight! Originally due to be the follow-up to last years Ninja-Robo release, the figure was put on the back burner until Peter had a fuller grasp of 3D software, being picked up again earlier in the year and now finally seeing it’s first release. 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. Touching down alongside a fresh batch of Ninja-Robos for just $25 a piece, expect the Bad Knights in the Peter Kato store this Thursday, September 4th at 9pm EST…

MAN-E-NEWS// Daniel Yu’s “Metalhead” resin mini figure for SGTCC ’14…

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…

With STGCC ’14 in just a couple of weeks time, super-sculptor Daniel Yu has started to reveal the line-up of new figures he’ll be unveiling at his booth- starting with the awesome Footmen minis! Riding on the recent TMNT resurgence, Daniel’s latest custom Playmobil figure takes direct inspiration from the 1989 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. Due to be debuting at the con alongside another new character, “Metalhead”, stay tuned for the full lowdown on both figures soon…
