MAN-E-NEWS// The “Independence Day” Despair mini figure from Adam Quesnell x Stand Up Records…

image2

“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.”

Having seen exclusive Valentines Day and Tenacious Toy exclusives earlier in the year, the debut figure from comedian and avid toy collector Adam Quesnell – DESPAIR – is finally set to return for a special Independence Day release for all you PATRIODIOTS out there! Originally created to celebrate the release of his album “Can We Afford This Much Despair?” on Stand Up! Records, Adam teamed up with illustrator Terence Brown II, October Toys, and our very own Tru:Tek of the Disart Toylabs to bring this sad little guy to life. Standing at around 3″ of 100% UV resistant rubber, the super squishy figure was designed by Terrance and sculpted by the OT team, this time around coming cast in a patriotic red, white and blue marble by Tru:Tek of the Disart Toylabs… Touching down in Adam’s store on Saturday, July 4th at 17.76pm (6.16pm!) Eastern time, the figure has been limited to just 5 this time around, each coming packed with a download code for Adam’s album for just $25 each shipped in the US…


MAN-E-NEWS// Splurrt’s “Puppoo the Evil Unchi” sofubi proto revealed…

11357739_1661832370715255_345145058_n

Sometimes bad dogs make bad poops. When neglected the perfect mix of elements, fertilizers, pollutants, air born pathogens, etc. can cause the bacteria to mutate, creating… Puppoo the Evil Unchi! Inspired by the past 6 months of walking his new puppy – and presumably cleaning up some mutant turds in its wake – the latest sculpt from Secretoy’s Splurrt offers up his take on the hilarious “unchi” monster. Whilst very little is known about the figure at present, the 2 part design would suggest that the scale is most likely in-line with the artist’s previous mini-mid sized work at around 3″ tall. Keep track of the artist’s dedicated Instagram feed here for the full lowdown on this smelly little creature soon…

Originally posted on IG over the weekend and subsequently covered by fellow toy blog Spanky Stokes, we’ve decided to finally shed some light on the latest work-in-progress toy from our editor-in-chief, Tru:Tek… the Ooze Tank! Once again drawing obvious inspiration from the much-loved 70’s Ooze-It doll, the hand sculpted piece – pictured here alongside the MoYF Ooze ring for scale – will form the basis for a whole line of sub 1″ micro-sized tank keshi influenced by classic/cult toys, as well as becoming the standard omake accessory for future Oozeball releases. Due to be cast up in a flexible, keshi-style rubber once the sculpt is complete, expect details of the first Ooze Tank release towards the end of next month…
