    Mangeloids Coming Soon - Vintage 5.5 Action Figures from Stagwolf Art and Toys

    Hi 'Org, long time no see

    Been busy with a lot of projects, but with the new She-Ra and the boom in vintage-styled figures all happening, my MOTU addiction started resurfacing. I've had a "MOTU Like" line planned for Stagwolf since the beginning, called "Mangeloids", but the notion that the vintage style figure construction could still be viable really propelled me to get it started. Been working on this for about a month, and have a fully working buck-prototype, and have gotten most of the sculpting done on my first production male-body "beast" and production male head "cat".

    First Female figure is being produced now. I'm planning on doing a mix of toys inspired by all the fun designs in "MOTU Bootleg" land, 80's stuff that never got toys, and characters from my own comic projects. But I fully plan on letting the community drive which designs get done first.

    Feels good to be back on the best forum on the internet (y'all are still cool around here, right?)

    Paint Tests:
    Tygyr-Tora Heroic Feline:


    Alternate Heroic Cat Paint Concepts


    Bad Kitty


    Un-Named (Currently) Heroic Warrior *inspired by Magnon of Galaxy Warriors*


    Illo-La Heroic Figure Based on a Certain Grace-Jones Barbarian film character

    Not only does it apply nicely to Masters, but is probably a deep truth.

    DestrongerLupus, if your figures have finished do show their pics to us.
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Should be able to start work on the first actual-physical toys this weekend (which will be going out to some of my early-bird product testers), but in the meantime, here are the paint-concept tests:

    Very interesting concept. So, the idea is to be able to combine the parts of them? I like the Heroic Warrior. The feline head doesn't convince me very much. As a suggestion, the straps on the feline one seem too thick.
    I am currently accepting commissions for custom figures, just PM me with your project

    Yes, interchangeable parts (much like the vintage line) is a key feature. Couple of shots of TyGyr-Tora's scrap-print with a quick-paint test, and compatibility with the vintage line. First production TyGyr-Tora (probably going to do him up in Emerald-Kitty Colors) is on the bench now getting his clean-and-primer work.


    First finished female sculpt. Test print was largely successful, but needed a few tweaks, will probably show her off once I have a production figure ready:
