The Fugg the Slayer handmade figure stands in at 5.5 inches in height. It features a head and hands (resin) that were sculpted/mashed up by Ben Spencer and a body buck and removable championship belt (polyurethane rubber) that was sculpted/mashed up by BigManToys. Fugg was also hand painted by Ben Spencer.
The figure will be limited to an edition of 5 pieces running $70.00 each. They'll be available exclusively through The Galaxxor Online Store on Friday July 31st 2015 at Noon CDT.
Once a ruthlessly savage warlord from the planet Orkamania, Fugg the Slayer is now one of the most feared combatants in the fighting arenas of the hive planet X-544. Tasked by a wealthy hive aristocrat with hunting down a suitable opponent for The Lucha Sharks, Ciper the Bounty Hunter captured Fugg from his home planet and brought him to X-544. Every bit as flamboyant as he is violent, Fugg now stands at the top of the ranks of the hive world arena fighters, terrorizing even The Lucha Sharks!

As for the rest of July, it's been slow. Real slow. I just haven't had the funds to pick things up. I've seen some of the new DC Super Friends Imaginext stuff, I had to pass on a great deal of clearance Imaginext items, and there was an amazing Takara Blockman lot that sold for way more than I could afford. Truth be told, it wasn't much when you pieced it out, in fact it was a great deal, but i just didn't have the cash on hand for it. So when I'm out fr groceries and I sneak by the toy aisle and see LEGO on clearance I get excited. Hell, if not just for the fact that I can afford it.
Now the thing that has been nagging at me is the fact that these toys feature many original sculpts in the line. The Iron Monger toy above was sold only in this set, and how many uses would come of it in the future? How about the Logan body? He's in his coat and jeans, not many uses that I can see outside of Logan. The Transformers figures were the same. Hasbro never even utilized the Starscream body to do Thundercracker or Skywarp for any bonus packs or store exclusives. Last week at SDCC Hasbro showed off more of it's Star Wars Mashers series. I have to say, that this line again shows very little re-color possibilities. Sure there's a Jango out of Boba Fett, but that's about all I could see in the first line-up.
Now I do have a point to make here. It's that Hasbro has for years re-used the same worn, weary bodies for Marvel Universe figures, and for G.I.Joes in certain eras. They said they had to do it to make the most out of the mold due to the costs in creating them. Now the Mashers come along, and there's very little mold re-use, and many parts to each figure, and they are larger. Never mind the fact that they are not exactly doing gangbusters sales-wise since several places have clearing them out for the last 4 months. I guess I can't even pretend to understand this, more so now that it's 3:50am and my alarm is gonna go off in 10 minutes to tell me to get up and go to work.
Of course my whole rant about Hasbro not being consistent with mold re-use if shredded when I see they've re-packaged the Playskool Heroes Star Wars line and re-sold it to Target. This is a line Target had clearanced out of existence in it's stores. Now for about what it had cost you to buy 2 figures, you get only 1. The upside is that I can now get the Biker Scout with a Speeder Bike and not have to buy the online exclusive 6 trooper pack.
And ready to take over most of the aisle space is the superior children's action figure line...
