MAN-E-NEWS// Triclops Studios at ToyCon UK…

IMG_4411

We’ve been dying to hook up with the guys at Triclops Studios for a while now, so with ToyCon UK over the weekend we took the opportunity to talk shop, grab some B.A.S.T.A.R.Ds (including the pictured ‘DumbRare’ 1/1 Drilla Killa!) and take a sneaky look at the upcoming ‘Bullet Belt’ Skinner collab… Offering up a ton of mini figures both old and new, fans were given the chance of nabbing a number of exclusive B.A.S.T.A.R.D hand paints (including the return of the uber rare Pig Buddha!), Peenut Mega B.A.S.T.A.R.Ds, the long awaited Unbox produced flexible plastic Goober and Big.B, plus the all-new line up of 12 resins! Taking the line away from it’s M.U.S.C.L.E inspired roots, the hilarious new figures instead lampoon 80’s and 90’s kid-culture, featuring a wonderfully diverse selection of designs inspired by the likes of MOTU (Man@Legs), TMNT (TMNT0rtoise & 3Bop), The Toxic Crusaders (Harmful Avenger) and Beetlejuice (Bettleman)…

Whilst it was great to see so many new figures on offer, the real star of the booth came in the form of the 10″ Bullet Belt prototype. Designed by Skinner and produced by Unbox as the first release in Triclops’ super-sized B.A.S.T.A.R.D Universe project, the incredible ‘mini’ figure is in the final stages of development, so should hopefully be heading to the shelves in the not too distant future… Stay tuned for more info on both Bullet Belt and the B.A.S.T.A.R.D ‘reboot’ general release soon!
