MAN-E-NEWS// UPDATE: ‘Ed Skworm vs. Min-E-Face test pull shot #2…

As you may remember, we have been working on a couple of resin releases over the last few months, with our first M.U.S.C.L.E bootleg 2 pack, ‘Ed Skworm vs. Min-E-Face, finally nearing completion (find out more about their progress here and here). Today we reveal the latest colour-test pull shot from Steve Patt over at Papagrim Toys- and as you can see, things are coming along nicely! We really wanted to make the release as authentic as possible, so (luckily for us) Steve has gone the extra mile in getting the perfect M.U.S.C.L.E flesh tone. With hopefully only a couple of more tries to go (we’re aiming for in between the 2 highlighted figures below), progress is still on track for an early June release.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks, where we’ll be revealing header art, plus full details on edition size, pricing, and of course, our elusive “Artist Series” contributors!


MIN-E-FACE// Cast aside from the MAN-E family at birth due to a rare defect that left him without the use of two of his faces, Min-E was kindly taken in by an NJPW wrestler who nurtured the otherworldly fighting skill that laid dormant inside the young boy. Sworn enemy of the Skworm (his estranged family’s closest ally), MIN-E is about to embark on his biggest quest yet- to rid the world once and for all of these putrid, sickly creatures and gain revenge on the family that once left him for dead!

‘ED SKWORM// Although one of the smallest species of [sick worm], the ‘Ed Skworm is widely known as the most brutal. Reported to be able to ingest a whole human head within 6.66 seconds, natives of the Stench (the Skworm’s most common hunting ground) have taken to wearing ‘Pepto-dysmal’ charms, the sorry beast’s only weakness, in a bid to stay alive. With a penchant for midget Japanese Pro wrestlers, our hero Min-E will have to watch his back or he’ll be losing the use of three faces instead of two!
