35MechatroWeGo is back in a new super fun 80’s inspired colorway!
Inspired by the Italian design group Memphis, Mr. Kobayashi - the original creator of Mechatro WeGo and mastermind behind CHUBU MECHATRONICS - provided color chips and paint samples in a soft pastel palette to define the color scheme. Sentinel worked its production magic to deliver a product that faithfully matched the colors of Kobayashi’s original prototypes
If you're not familiar with the 1/35 scale MechatroWeGo releases from Sentinel, then you are in for a treat - there is an unbelievable amount of articulation and poseability packed into a small robot figure for 100% FUN!
Built with an ABS plastic frame and die-cast metal parts, this modular toy is designed to allow for easy removal of various parts allowing for customization from simple decorations by beginners to complex modification by professionals. The head hatch can be opened and closed, and each arm and leg joint is fully articulated, so you can easily create many flexible poses.
In addition, each outer body part is exchangeable, so build your own WeGo by changing parts with other types from the series.
The 1/35 scale MechatroWeGo is approx. 75mm in height and fits perfectly in your hand!
The product package has been updated to a clear box that displays 35MechatroWeGo 80’s in a dynamic pose.
This newest release is a playful addition to any MechatroWeGo collection.

With 2020 coming to a close shortly, things are always rolling along for artists and his/her projects. 2021 looks to be no different for 5thTurtle artist Carlos Benitez. With just a teaser shot of some clear cast Dreamer figures and a long roll call of artists, the show is already shaping up to be a hit months in advance. What seems to originally have been planned as a group show, will now take place at Clutter Gallery, in Beacon, NY. Hopefully this means we will be able to see a solo show from Carlos sometime next year as well. For updates on the show and anything 5thTurtle, be sure to keep follow and keep an eye on all social media for 5thTurtle, as well as all of the artists listed in the roll call.
The Lucky Frank the Lucky Cat customs are two hand painted 8-inch vinyl Lucky Cats by Kendra Customs, originally produced by independent toy maker Vincent Scala.
These 2 Lucky Cats have been custom painted by Kendra Thomas, of Kendra's Customs, in her bright & colorful style. While they are painted in a very similar manner, each one is unique.
Lucky Frank tried his hand at being a cat, lost too many lives and luckily is still alive. Now he's retiring with whatever limbs he has left and trying his paw at being an artist. People may not like his bright color ways and broken appearance, but they are how he sees the world. Beauty in color and the brokenness of it all.
These customs are limited to two pieces and priced at $250 each. These are available to ship immediately from the Tenacious Toys US warehouse. Also, US and Canada customers enjoy free shipping for these items.
