Our longtime amigo Erick Scarecrow has teamed up with Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital for what could be his biggest release to date - a figure based on Jacket, the protagonist in the video game cult sensation Hotline Miami.

ESC-Toy Launching Last of Us Line
Having previously collaborated with Naughty Dog on the Nathan Drake vinyl figure, ESC-Toy and Erick Scarecrow will be producing collectibles based on the developers enormous hit, The Last of Us. Joel and Ellie are sure to show up, but who else will be featured in this line? Infected? Bill?! I really hope there’s a Bill figure, complete with a Bears Magazine accessory.
With officially licensed Uncharted figures under his belt and homages to PlayStation, Atari 2600, and Super Mario, it’s no secret that Erick Scarecrow is a big fan of gaming. His latest figure is based on the most misunderstood controller of all time, the N64. Erick flips the controller upside down to create a clever, skeletal face. We’ll be sure to post official photos once they surface.

Shit Just Got Real: 9DKP Launched!
Erick Scarecrow and ESC-toy have just launched their anime Kickstarter project, 9DKP, also known as 9 Deadly Killer Pussies! This is shaping up to be something awesome. It’s written over here by Erick and will be animated in Japan by Asahi Production. Pledges start at just $9, so if you’d like to see these 9 kitties kick some zombie ass, get on over to the Kickstarter page!
9 Deadly Killer Pussies Teaser
The Kickstarter anime project from ESC-Toy and Asahi Production is quickly approaching. Today Erick Scarecrow launched a teaser, showing off the design of the 9 Eyes Stone. This stone housed the powers of an evil cat character that nearly destroyed Japan. His powers were sealed away centuries ago, but are unearthed in modern day Japan, wreaking havoc on the country. Someone’s got to stop this jerkface cat, and it’s not going to be the Samurai Pizza Cats.

Here’s What Erick Scarecrow Is Bringing to SDCC ‘13
Erick Scarecrow will be selling a buttload of original and customized toys during SDCC at the Dragatomi booth (5350). First up is MK Drake, which is a special collaboration between ESC-toy and Monster Kolor. I hear production is winding down on the Drake collectibles, so if you haven’t picked one up yet, definitely check this one out.
Next up is a customized Funko Goofy with M&M eyes and a classy metallic blue coat of paint. There will be only six of these and they’ll run $50 each.
A blue colorway of the PS-Bot will debut at SDCC. They’re $300 and are limited to 6 pieces.
Alien Cuss are another group of customized Funko toys. There are several solid colors as well as a glow-in-the-dark version. The 6 pieces will be $75 each.
Finally, a smoke version of the Soopa Jr. will be released at SDCC. There are 10 of these and they will be $20 each.
Not going to SDCC? A mixed transparent and solid resin version of Soopa Maria will launch on the 19th for $200 here.
Zone 6 by ESC-Toy
Erick Scarecrow’s done a 180 with this design. His resin toys are usually cute or cartoony. But this one says “fuck that,” rips out your eyeball, and draws a pentagram on its forehead with it. The 8” figure and accessories are limited to 10 sets worldwide for $150. Order one from the resin underworld right here.

Esc-Toy Early May Drop
Erick Scarecrow and Esc-Toy are starting of May with a splash. Mermadi 2 Villainous is a brand new sculpt with an awesome aquatic color scheme. The watery look of the seafoam green resin is pretty amazing. The handpainted toy is $100 and comes with a water-splash accessory. 10% of the proceeds go to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, which is pretty awesome.
There’s also a new Mini Soopa Jr., this time in grape resin. This is probably my favorite colorway so far. There needs to be a transparent purple candy cab in real life. The grape colorway is available for just $20.
Last up is a super limited signed-and-numbered Papa Sama Swordsman gicleé print. It’s printed on a 6-color printer and runs $45. 10% of this ones goes to St. Jude’s as well.
Pick up any of the above toys and print right here.

Little Axe Red by Esc-Toy
Erick Scarecrow’s newest project is so metal. Well, it’s resin, but you know what I mean. Erick’s version of Little Red Riding Hood serves up the Big Bad Wolf’s head, complete with killer blood splatter. The metallic sprays on the wolf’s head are especially nice. This set of two handpainted resin figures also comes with two weapons: the Sweet Steel Axe and the Blue Truth Teller Axe.
Limited to 15 pieces, the set drops on Saturday at 11AM Eastern right here.
April Toy Drop from ESCtoy
Erick Scarecrow will be dropping three new resin toys this Saturday at 11 EST. The vio colorway of Erick’s Soopa Maria figure is a one-off with a very Spring-ish pastel scheme. The corona colorway of Turtum Micci is another one-off with a warm gradient. My favorite is the electric cotton candy version of Chap-Lynn which has a mix of transparent resin colors. The subtle purple stripes at the top are especially nice. This one’s limited to 12 pieces. Be here at 11 on Saturday to grab one of these.
March Toy Drop from ESC-Toy
Erick Scarecrow and company have been hard at work, stirring their cauldrons of resin. This month will see a bunch of new toys drop, but two of the designs really stand out.
The first is the Love Crawler, which is a bruised-up heart. Its creepy little feet and clear resin make it reminiscent of a Metroid, another type of soul-sucking parasite closely related to love. The best part is that they’re only $15.
The second is Chelly Chainsaw Blood Sisters. This is my favorite resin toy in a long time. The glossy paint, the exaggerated teeth of the chainsaw, the rounded edges, the little pants tears and chunks of hair - I love everything about this piece. There are only two available and they’ll run $250 each.
These toys, along with new Armora and Tunic colorways, will go on sale tomorrow at 11AM Eastern right here.
Double Toy Drop from ESC-Toy
Erick Scarecrow and co. will be releasing two new toys tomorrow. The Clear Blueberry Mini Soopa continues the series of handmade resin arcade cabinet toys. The color is making me crave some blue Kool-Aide. The 6.5” Pinnola has a killer color scheme. Per the usual, this one’s hand painted, signed, numbered, and packed by Erick himself. They’re limited to five pieces and run $225.
Be here at 11AM tomorrow to get a hold of these classy resin pieces.
