Mictlantecuhtli, Lord of the Underworld and Death by Ek Ocelotl

A representation of Mictlantecuhtli, the Lord of the underworld and death of the Mexica (Aztec) mythology is the first art toy by Ek Ocelotl. They are passionate about their prehispanic culture and want the name of the Aztec gods to be known throughout the planet.

They believed that obsidian was created at the moment a lightning struck the earth, thus  costituting the union between the earthly and the divine.

Available in Orange, Pink, and Green, for the lovers of the iconic colorful and vibrant art toy style. They look awesome under black light! (UV Light).

With a classic DIY style, mainly tought for all those who enjoy intervening and painting their own pieces.

Superplastic and Gorillaz Drop Four New Limited Edition Art Toys NOW on their site

 Global entertainment brand Superplastic has partnered with virtual British band Gorillaz to release four ultra-luxe limited edition designer toys in celebration of the band’s critically-acclaimed new album Song Machine: Season One - Strange Timez . The product drop - available today on Superplastic.co - features all four band members: frontman 2D , guitarist Noodle , drummer Russel Hobbs and bassist Murdoc Niccals .

BUY SUPERPLASTIC GORILLAZ FIGURES HERE - AVAILABLE NOW

This isn’t Superplastic’s first collaboration with Gorillaz, but it is the largest. 2019 saw Gorillaz lead singer 2D immortalized in vinyl and was the first Gorillaz toy of its kind in over ten years since Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett first worked with Superplastic founder Budnitz on the iconic vinyl Gorillaz toys back in 2005. This second collaboration includes an all new 2D figure, as well as Murdoc, Russel, and Noodle.

"After more than 15 years creating vinyl toys with the Gorillaz, I’m super excited to be releasing the first full set of Gorillaz toys in 10 years. As the world’s premiere boutique creator of art toys, Superplastic only works with a handful of the world’s top artists. Jamie Hewlett is a genius and his twisted universe is a massive inspiration for me, Janky and Guggimon, and everyone at Superplastic,” says Superplastic founder Paul Budnitz.

The limited-edition vinyl toy collection features four figures – one for each band member – with each ranging between 9 and 12-inches tall and retail from $80-95 MSRP through December 31, 2020. For the first 48 hours, all orders made will come with an exclusive commemorative Gorillaz pin gift with purchase. The 2D and Murdoc toys to ship in December with Noodle and Russel to ship February 2021.

All orders can be bundled to include a ticket to Song Machine Live , a one-off fully live Gorillaz concert created to watch from the comfort of your home and available to stream worldwide on LIVENow. A full show production featuring the Gorillaz live band led by Damon Albarn, blending exciting real time live performance and Jamie Hewlett animation plus appearances from very special guest artists too. With three separate live performances, anything can happen and no matter where you are in the world, there’s a show start-time to suit you.

With millions of dollars in toy and apparel sales to-date, as well as product drops that sell out in minutes, Superplastic continues to cement its position as a leader in the new era of digital entertainment and virtual celebrities - one that is breaking boundaries between online and traditional media, and real and virtual worlds.

TheFinalBosses Limited Edition Designer Toys, launching soon on Kickstarter!

TheFinalBosses Limited Edition Designer Toys, launching soon on Kickstarter!

TheFinalBosses is an up and coming creator of limited edition designer toys. They create Vinyl Collectables that follow deliberate episodes which talk about prevailing problems around the world. Episode 1 "Anti-Bully", looks at the problem of bullying around the world and how we should all be an upstander. The toys are made of Vinyl and have fine matte finishing to create that sharp and detailed finish. We highly recommend reading their story below and supporting them in their project. All the best TheFinalBosses!

Here is a brief summary of what they do.

Overview.
In this world, some people have it tougher than others. TheFinalBosses goal and vision is to create characters that raise AWARENESS on the PROBLEMS that are usually overlooked around the world. The people at TheFinalBosses plan to bring these characters to life and into Limited Edition collectibles. Their artists from around the world share the passion of designing exclusive one-of-a-kind art pieces that tell a story and SPREAD MEANINGFUL messages to the public. The name “The Final Bosses” came about because overcoming these problems is similar to battling the final bosses of games. It is usually not easy and takes a lot of time. Back them to influence and spread positivity around the world!

Deliberate Episodes.
TheFinalBosses create and release toys on an episode by episode basis, following a deliberate storyline that talks about prevailing problems that people face around the world. Each toy is specially crafted and designed to raise awareness on these problems.
In Episode 1, they talk about “Anti-Bullying”. Paito, the main character was bullied and could be seen crying along the hallway. Lusus being an upstander witnessed the incident and comforted Paito. This harmless act, though small, was impactful towards Paito’s recovery and getting him back on his feet. 

Characters
Paito is a founding member of "TheFinalBosses". Growing up, Paito had first hand experiences of the severe problems that many people around the world are facing. He aims to share his personal experiences on each of these problems in each "Episode". Paito is a huge fan of Easter egg challenges. That is why he personally masterminds challenging riddles for players to solve in every "Episode". Only the best players will get to win the very rare and exclusive prize.

Lusus, same age as Paito, grew up together in the same town. Though within close proximity, they had very different lives. Lusus constantly rains "protection" over Paito, helping him lead a normal life that any kid deserves. Best friends since young, Lusus joined "TheFinalBosses" and became the Director of Toy Designs and was also the lead male model in the company. He is well known for his quirky one-of-a-kind toy designs that are created to bring across key messages to the public.

Paisus wears a hybrid helmet that integrates both Paito and Lusus, exuding energy from both Paito and Lusus. If you follow our story, you would be familiar with both our main characters. Paito represents the vast majority of people and the problems they face. Lusus is a strong "Upstander" and is always reaching out to those in need. The bear claw is a symbol of strength and represents how one should stand up firm against any wrongdoings and face them with courage. The diapers on Paisus illustrates how these problems can manifest from a young age and should never be taken too lightly. PS: The shoes on Paisus belong to both Paito and Lusus.

Easter Egg challenge
Something unique about TheFinalBosses, is that they mastermind Easter Egg Challenges for players to compete and solve 4 mysterious challenges to claim the ultra-rare prize. Episode 1’s challenge is estimated to be of 7.5/10 difficulty.  The top 5 finishers will be crowned The Final Bosses and have their names engraved on the Leaderboard for the rest of History! Top 3 finishers would earn themselves uber exclusive prizes! EXCITING!
Having such challenges, TheFinalBosses aim to create a community that are closely knit and is constantly working together to solve problems around the world!

Toy look
Paito and Lusus are made of vinyl and designed to have a retro toy look. They both stand at 12 inches tall. Paisus is also made of vinyl and stands at 7 inches tall. They will be packed in handsome eureka boxes. Take a chance and open one to see what you get!

TheFinalBosses will be launching really soon!  What are you waiting for? Join the Bosses family now and back TheFinalBosses campaign by clicking the "Notify me on launch" button via this link now! You won't regret it!
