Featuring the first 3 characters (Demba, Netsu and Namue) of the series. They come in a box set (STGCC exclusive) or a single random pack.

“For once, Boreo clan was the oldest and the most respected among the nines. Driven by guilt and sorrow armed with the legendary Sibat, Namue is the last of his kind took the resignation journey across the land to found the purpose of his existence.” 
“Only the bravest warrior can truly be deemed worthy of Futago, twin blades forged by the very first fire itself. Commanding and leads the fiercest warriors ever known, Netsu answers the call for battle under the banner of the Aka clan”
“Came from royal bloodline of the proud leaders of the Yara Clan, Demba took the responsibility to master the Iji regalia after the deceased of his father, and swore to protect the clan at all cost as the new clan leader”

Dimski and his resin “Scumbag Mutant”!

Straight out of Indonesia comes the eye catching work of Dimski who is an artist based in the city of Jakarta. This piece caught our eye on Instagram and definitely stands out with something a little different thrown in to the mix. Dimski’s latest piece (called Scumbag Mutant) is a 6″ resin figure with magnetic joints in the shoulders, arms, waist… and this is what Dimski has to say about the Scumbag Mutant…

This figure is based around the idea that every villain is a new hero, so I have just put a simply ugly things using Kamen Rider Black belt from 80’s tokusatsu series which he was part of my childhood hero.” Available for sale early March – you can contact Dimski for more details via his Instagram HERE or Online Store HERE!

Alympu’s “Zombie Squad: Arthur” Giant Ape with Rider 1/6th Scale Custom Set!

There’s a rumbling deep in the ground… boom, boom, boom. Giant footsteps, one after another, shaking the world to its knees. Is that Godzilla? King Kong? No, it’s Arthur! When the viral infection spread the zombie plague, most research facilities not focused on finding a cure shut down, as was the case with the project from a now abandoned zoo that created this metamorphic giant ape. Forgotten, this beast struggled to survive, eventually freeing itself. Eventually finding a human friend, who calls this beast “Arthur” after a plate on its arm, the duo clear the path with a giant sword and have become part of… the Zombie Squad! What’s “Zombie Squad,” you might ask? It’s a series of 1/6th scale customs created by Indonesian artist Alympu, all set in the fictional world I creatively outlined above. This 18-inch tall resin figure has scratch built parts and specially made weapon, the entire form hand-painted to realistic perfection. A unique, one-of-a-kind custom creation, this will be available at Indonesia Comic Con 2016 at Booth A14-08.

Nakanari’s “Not My Spiki Show” pays tribute to well-known artists

While traveling to Indonesia, Tony Nakanari will be exhibiting a whole cast of custom figures in what he is calling the “Not My Spiki Show”, Nakanari’s first solo tribute art exhibit! This will feature 15-20 custom pieces inspired by well-known artists in the designer vinyl scene. The artists that Nakanari pays tribute to include: Arkiv Vilmansa, Angry Woebots, Futura 2000, Flying Förtress, Frank Kozik, Ugly Doll, Itokin Park, Jermaine Rogers, Kendy Tandiono, Kun (Sakun), Michael Lau, Mist, Reach, and a Secret Guest! Even though this is an homage, it does seem a bit odd that he is taking the artists style and replicating it verbatim on his own platform… I hope all the artists are okay with this, but seeing as Nakanari has been involved with the scene for so long, I am sure he got their blessings! Nakanari has also invited Andri Widjaja, Evan Tsai, Timothy Istianto and Laughin’ Man as featured artists to showcase their work at the show. The “Not My Spiki Show” is open to the public and will be held at Plastic Culture at the Grand Indonesia Shopping Town East Mall on September 19 at 6pm. Each of the custom art pieces in the exhibit are not for sale and are one-of-a-kind, but photography of the pieces and event is very much welcome.
