MWOTR prepares for Kansas City Planet Comicon this weekend!

It has been a busy, busy time around MWOTR HQ!

The next colorway for Goliath should be arriving from the factory at the end of this month, so not much longer now :)

We have prepared a neat bunch of resin figures for this weekend KC Planet Comicon, what is left will be sold online after the Con.

There will be a series of minfigure sized Takeshi’s as well as our 2up 5″ scale Takeshi on display/for sale.

We also are working hard on a few neat side projects which might have a potential for future production. This widowmaker figure has an alternate screaming spider face. Potential vinyl? Maybe a new minifigure? Only time will tell

Series 3 and 4??

Series 2 should launch sometime in the late Spring, it is in the final stages of production and final test shots should come around April!

With that said we are already working on the mini figure Series 3 and 4, who would you like to see?

Do you want Lapin Loco to finally make their debut? Winged Fury? Fortune Seekers? or would you like non-wrestling characters like the commentating team of Mole E Styles and Weasal? How about some comic book characters like Francis Foul or Referee “Old Yella” Barker?

We try to mix things up and keep each series interesting, in Series 2 we have given you the first female in the MWOTR line and we have utilized a neat concept of the Generation Lion instead of just giving you Leo.

So let us know, chime in and tell us who you think should be in Series 3 and 4.

Just remember the larger scale Giants are simply not possible for inclusion into the static figure line (so not Tembo Jiwe or Takeshi Sumo), mid-tier figures tough could fit the same way Kayin launched Series 1.

Goliath Customs

We love when our guys get painted up, if you remember we had the amazing Charles “Monsterforge” Marsh paint up a set of the originals in order to tour the country.

Those pieces are now inside my personal display at home , having been retired from public view.

But now that our Goliath PVC has been making the rounds we are seeing more and more awesome paint jobs

Here is a Hart Foundation tribute done by PlasticSulu on the October Toys board

Generations returns this spring with Series 2!

Seasoned MWOTR fans will remember last years Generation Lions project. For those who don’t remember, the Generations project was a line of 5″ scaled Leo sculpts done to portray the family line.

In the upcoming Volume IV we will see Ransom as the mentor to Yvonne Wolfrom, and with the release of Series 2 we will see the Generations Lion in 2″ minifigure scale.

To commemorate and promote that, Hasbro artist and our good friend Leanne Hannah has produced new art for each member of the Corazon family.

First up are father and son, AWF Promoter Leonidas Hart and current AWF Star Leo Corazon

Toy Break 344 looks at Goliath!

Thanks George and Ayleen for the review, you can see it at around 18:53

We have heard that Goliath is nearly sold out/already sold out from our retail partner in Russia, Rotofugi is completely sold out as well. So it seems everyone is grabbing up Goliath as he shows up!
