"The Standard" Hansen has just released his 17th (!) assortment of full production Kabuto Mushi MK II figures, just in time to celebrate Halloween!
Continuing with his series of classic MOTU color design homages, Marty has a wild new Modulok inspired edition available, featuring not only a double set of Axis Joints, but also a separate matching "Mod" Crayboth sidekick. Marty and I worked together on a special contained build that you can check out over on his blog, as well as few alternate forms. Modulok was a really unique entry in the original MOTU toy line, and possessed the key element that the foundation of Glyos was built upon, that being its core interchangeability. To make this "Mod" Mushi even more authentic, Marty had new eye spray masks created to better echo those creepy old reptilian peepers that Modulok sported. All in all, a pretty cool entry in the growing Kabuto Mushi MK II MOTU subset.
Another noteworthy part of Marty's new round is the inclusion of the Kabuto Mushi MK II Standard MK II! A bit of a mouthful, I know, but what a killer figure! This edition represents MJ (Marty's son) Hansen's special Kabuto Mushi Comic cover art, and stands as the definitive version of the popular character. Lots of paint and a great combination of brown, green and black land this version as one of my personal favorite KMs yet. The green actually matches up with the "Aka" TMNG green that we just produced, so building between the colors yields some good results. To add a little extra fun to the mix, another color matched "Kabuto" Crayboth was also run, standing at the ready to watch KM's back! Hats off to MJ and his pop for working together to bring this one to life.
Marty's latest selection is topped off by not one, but two Transformers tributes that flesh out the ongoing Insecticon inspired KM subset. If you've been looking for the right opportunity to check out the vinyl Titan Mushi in hand, this October offering is just about the perfect style to start with.
Hard to believe that it's been almost 3 years (come January 2017) since the Kabuto Mushi MK II landed on the scene. Marty has been pushing himself since day one, and I'm looking forward to the next phase of the GodBeast's evolution. I've even heard some bad guys might be crawling around behind the scenes...
Congratulations to Marty and his boys on another great wave!
