Back during Christmas time, I did a review of a cool DIY toy from RoseArts called Color Blanks. In the video, I mentioned that I’d like to see some of the cool things others could make out of these figures. Soon after, I got a few submissions showing off your skills.
Well, looks like you guys aren’t done! Viewer Matthew has sent in some images of his awesome Color Blanks creation! He has taken this blank figure and turned it into a Predator!
It’s always great to see how creative the fans can be. Kevin Kosse has made some amazing custom heads designed to fit the bodies of Masters of the Universe Classics figures!

During the 2012 Toy Review Advent Calendar, I took a look at a holiday themed Color Blanks figure from Rose Arts. You may remember in that video I mentioned that I would like to see what YOU guys could do with the Color Blanks figures!
Well viewer Buzz Chuck accepted the challenge, and has created his own Masters of the Universe themed Color Blanks figures!

From the corner of the Galaxxorverse that is Hive World X-544 comes El Tiburon, Leader of The Lucha Sharks! He’s never met an opponent or a Michelada that he couldn’t finish. This figure was sculpted and designed by Ben Spencer and fine tuned and produced in resin by Marty “The Godbeast” Hansen. El Tiburon was also hand painted by Ben Spencer. This figure is limited to an edition of 10 and will never be produced in this colorway ever again. All 10 El Tiburon figures will ship about a month after all of the presale slots have been filled (so, late Januaryish).
El Tiburon will be available for $75 each on 12.21.12 at noon CST, exclusively from The Galaxxor Online Store.
From Joe Amaro, in collaboration with “Pixel Dan” Eardley comes The Molten Hammer!
Joe Amaro has teamed up with Castle Grayskullman creator Daniel Benedict to bring you the Castle Warriors Customization Kit, perfect for sprucing up your MOTU Classics Castle Grayskullman action figure!
Join me for a look at this set before it goes on sale!
You might remember that awesome Warlords of the Universe commercial I posted a while back. It was a collaboration between toy-maker Joe Amaro and Castle Grayskullman creator Daniel Benedict which showed off some cool new accessories to turn your MOTU Classics Castle Grayskullman figure into, well, a different looking version of Castle Grayskullman! Basically, the idea would be to create an army of Castle Warriors!
Well good news! Soon you’ll be able to buy your very own Castle Warriors Customizing Kit!
The figure is designed by Ben Spencer, the man behind Galaxxor, with additional sculpting by Marty “TheGodBeast” Hansen. He features articulation at the shoulders. Full details on the Lucha Shark should be available soon at http://luchasharks.blogspot.com/

It’s always interesting to check out what some of the smaller toy companies are producing. If you are a fan of the 5 inch “fantasy” figures of the 1980′s, such as Masters of the Universe and similar lines, then you might get a kick out of the Art Toys that 5.5 Customs is producing.
Join me for a look at two of their unique figures: Cold Shot and Steel Jaw!

Joe Amaro writes to let us know that the Manta Raider has an official sale date!

The link to sale the page is below:
Mark your calendars! You don’t want to miss out! And stay tuned, as i’ll have a review of the Manta Raider up soon so you can see it in detail!
Join me for a look at this latest batch!
Video after the jump!
The price for the Manta Raider will be $50.00 and will be limited to one per person. I am thinking about pre-selling them to help avoid any headaches at the con. Anything that does not sell during the pre-sell period will be at the con for sale.
This is for the Manta Raiders at Power Con only. I will not be shipping any out at this time. That will be another run and thier WILL BE another run later for fans who could not attend Power Con.
To be clear if you pre-order you will have to pick them up at Rudy’s booth. Which is better because while there you can him sign it! But I will not do this until I have them done and ready, so maybe by early to mid September.
I will keep updating you as I have information, especially when I have the ordering information.
ORIGINAL POST: Joe Amaro has revealed the updated artwork by Rudy Obrero that will be used for the packaging of the upcoming Manta Raider accessory!
Joe hopes to have details on the sale The Manta Raider very soon, but the first batch is planned to be sold at Power-Con next month! I’ll be sure to keep you all updated with the details as they become available!
Note: The Manta Raider is not associated with MOTU or Mattel. It’s a limited edition hand made piece of art and not a toy.
