    Finally have one of Manny’s Teen Werewolf 2.0 in hand, and it’s pretty rad. Once more in his seemingly intentional crude nature, a la the Goburin, it’s got a pachi textured vibe despite it not being a rip of anything existing before it. Instead it’s an evolutionary push forward from his original Teen Wolf that was produced in Mexico. Sized just a tad bigger than an average fight figure, Wolf 2.0 has a great sitting in the hand feel. As with its predecessor it is sculpted loosely after Manny himself, donning the glasses and pulled back, ponytailed hair, also sporting a hoodie and torn jeans. The furry textures over the arms, paws, feet and back of the head are heavily dug into the sculpt, but I think it really aids in the purpose of it being a werewolf, and makes it very recognizable as such. The facial features over the snout and snarl are very expressive. And I appreciate the teeth only coming from what, looks to me, like an underbite. They’re like tusks. The broken side of the glasses on its face is flat out missing a lens, and it looks like he was shot in the face with buckshot; lots of pellet - like pokes. The hoodie is super fun. It’s smooth and open, which I’m hoping means we can see more artwork drawn/painted on either side. There’s also two, little indents at the neck where hoodie strings could be installed, which I definitely hope to see. Another fun, minor detail that I hadn’t noticed until holding one is that he’s missing a toenail on furthest left toe. All in all, I feel like this is very much a smaller scaled mascot toy, but can be pitted against fight figures for fun. Lookin’ forward to more releases and what can be done from here! This particular version was an artist collaboration by Splurrt.

    T35N Werewolf! A Fink inspired one off, painted on black vinyl by Dark Matter Toys, and meaningfully gifted as a surprise for my birthday. The spray coverage and deep saturation of the colors is awesome and precise. The personalized style of the belly lettering brings back my younger South Phoenix days. The gesture itself, grand. I’m really lovin’ and appreciating this one a lot. Thank you, Manny!

    I’m gonna call this one the Loveless Teen Werewolf, as it reminds me of the My Bloody Valentine album cover of the same name. Paul really shines with this signature paint app and color choice. Even when it runs across multiple characters and toys they all manage to be set apart from one another. The bloody lookin’ mouth of the wolf is a great contrast to the bright and heavy saturated pinks, greens and purples. I really, really love that there’s finally a version of this hoodie wearing toy with hoodie strings, and Paul held back none on a nice thread and a couple stoppers. The stamp of the hoodie looks embossed into the toy, almost like a heated brand. But the stamp is cleanly applied and reads perfectly. The wired tag that tied the bag shut is a nice additive, as well. Something you could very well, and should, display in its own place. I’ll be keepin’ that flat and preserved. As always, Paul has demonstrated that his artistry is...untouchable. Happy to see him and Manny collaborate on such a great release.
