    I could not find a thread just for Awesome Toy except for the Fake Baron thread. But since Awesome Toy has been creating more than just Fake Barons, I thought I would start this thread. Please feel free to share Awesome Toy information and newest releases here. Enjoy!

    NYCC exclusives

    Per Awesome Toy: "Originally planned to sell at NYCC, since we couldn’t finish painting on time, so now we are offering online sales."

    Jinmenken and Skull Jinmenken. Tokyo theme colorway 2015 NYCC exclusive. Price $100 each + S&H. Height about 21 cm. This Tokyo themed colorway is inspired by the original 1971 Bullmark Hedorah sofubi.

    Additional description by Awesome Toy of The Amazing Fake Baron:

    THWIP!

    A little web swinging action gimmick we added for this NYCC release. We poke a tiny hole on Fake Baron’s wrist and added a fishing line inside, for collectors who purchased this release, hope you will enjoy this! If you don’t like it you can remove the fishing line easily.

    Great note to start the dedicated thread. The Fake Barons are definitely fantastic, but it is nice to see all of their other projects too. The They Live tv sets are great, I would love to see them option a few character toys as well (maybe to come). The sort of 'generic' robot stylings of the FB - and I mean that in a good way, for the KO character it is derived from - lend itself well exploring other paint apps. The Supaidaman is a cool choice, and I can imagine a few others that might work in similar fashion.

    Glad I scored one of those "Amazing Fake Baron" figures. He will look nice next to my DLux custom one-off! Wish I got into these guys sooner, I really want that Vampire version and the Black Ox and Scope Dog homage Fake Baron.

    Don't forget about the Fake Spectreman line too.

    First 4 versions here. Inspired by patchi cards or vintage blow models.

    Apparently two more are coming next, with the weird look seen in the Brazilian comics.

    I really only like the Fake Spectreman #3, definitely the best ofnthe bunch for me. I wish he would make more use of these sculpts and do some different colorways like all the Fake Baron variants. The ones inspired from Brazilian comics look whack, the facial expression reminds me of a character you would see on Gumby.

    Those Attack on Titan Walking Cadavers are so good! I had no idea what to expect when Nick originally proposed the idea to me. Season 2 can't come soon enough.

    I know! I've been considering hunting for a Splurrt walking cadaver for a while and this pushed me over the edge. Fingers and toes crossed that I'm picked!
