Profile of a MechaZombie

[11 x slideshows above / CLICK for full-screen viewing]

FINAL FIGURE: Shown above is the "chase" edition of MechaZombie - numbering "00". If you decide to go for the "blind box" option, you have a chance to score this figure randomly! But if you decide to choose a number from #1 to #10, then this option is unavailable to you.

No note that the icons at the back of the Toasterboy-heads are all different! For "00", it's a skull-n-crossbones, for others, they are different icons! As for what they are, well, that's all part of the "surprise" :)

Figures in the MechaZombie Series One are articulated at two points; the articulated arms.

Battle Patches

PATCHES: As you can see from the slideshow above, each figurine comes with an embroidered fabric patch with the corresponding number seen on the side of the MechaZombie's head. I had wanted a sense of "owner/toy-cohesion" with the patch, likened to YOU "battling alongside" MechaZombie to save humanity!

Drapped over the figure in the box, Erwin likens the box to be a "coffin" for the figures, and I reckon the badge draped over it looks like a "flag" hahahaha (now, THAT, will be another concept for another toy under this banner ;p).

Hand-Made Packaging Boxes

[5 x slideshows above / CLICK for full-screen viewing]

HAND-MADE BOXES: These are literal hand-made boxes, with "rivets" down the side, and a viewing port up above, covered in textured black paper and hand-brished with silver-grey paint, with each box different from each other. Pretty remarkable, I insist - and provides a swell finishing touch to what we dare call a "hand-made" product!

11 x boxes in total for 10 x figures numbered 01-10, and as well the box which holds the chase figure numbering "00". Of course these boxes will be packed within another post-box, for deliveries ! (No, I'm not wrapping this is juts plain brown-paper and slapping a stamp on it! LOL

Magnetic Personality: Detachable Articulated Limbs

Did you know that both arms for the figure are detachable? And that they are connected to the body via magnets?

MechaZombie Army Awaiting Orders!

[12 x slideshows above / CLICK for full-screen viewing]

AN-ARMY-AWAITS: C'mon, who doesn't like group/army shots! All MechaZombies hand-painted and ready for final touches, and for their hands to be added (they are detachable and held together to the body via magnets!). Hell yeah, I want to keep an entire army of them! But nope, they are all for YOU!

The finished version will see the "ZOMBIE" side glossy (like yummy fresh flesh oozing), while the "MECHA" side will be finished in a matte surface. Hey, these are battlefield hardened characters, not "fresh-off-the mecha-making assembly-line" yeh? (We'll save that for another series, maybe :p)

Painting MechaZombies

[5 x slideshows above]

PAINTING LIMBS: Like discarded soldiers, their limbs lie across the battlefield …. nah, these be the limbs of MechaZombie after paintwork and waiting to dry. Yes, this is "hand-made" and "hand-painted" for YOU! With each individual figure likened to a customized toy, this MechaZombie will be the bomb!

Also notice some icons on the "hands" - they will match the icons at the back of the heads (in the "Mecha" region) with the 10 x figures featuring different icons/markings!

Grinding MechaZombies

[4 x slideshows above]

READY2GRIND: Resin casted Toasterboys ready to undergo grinding under the skillful hands of Erwin The Mongar, creator of Toasterboys!

[16 x slideshows above / CLICK for full-screen viewing]

GRINDING-MECHAZOMBIES: Each individual screw is attached by hand, each figure is hand-grinded by Erwin. It does not get more "hand-made" by this! The man is a monster! wwhhiiirrrrrrrrrr*

[10 x slideshows above / CLICK for full-screen viewing]

GRINDED: And the MechaZombie Army is now ready to roll.


The man who would be Toasterboy-maker, with a saw to his temple no doubt from his tireless rampage with the MechaZombies - Don't Do It, Bro! There Be More Figures To Be Made! … ere… I meant; "We Don't Want You TO Leave Us!

The Patch Is Done!


The final embroidered cloth patch! Courtesy of Erwin's final graphics, the patch is done and ready for action! Why the number "00"? Tis for me and Erwin (and anything beyond that, it'll be giving the "fun" a little bit too soon ;p) and the "fun" we will have with it :p

Patching Me Into HQ!

Each figure will come with it's own fabric patch! Each patch will feature a sequential number coinciding with the resin figure.

I've always wanted to have the toy coincide with the owner - so the MechaZombie in-your-hand "belongs" to you, literally! And YOU are along for the struggle alongside your mecha!

The above are my roughs (I wanted a design combo of both elements of Mongar Toys and TOYSREVIL), but I depended on Erwin to finish up the final designs -here are some samples! And we'd decided to go with "Survive.Mecha.Zombie" as I had wanted this release to be the "first stage", and not the all-encompassing badge as yet ...

The next-to-final design (with text-change mentioned above):

Numbering Toasterboys

Each figure will be numbered sequentially, No.01 to No.10 - shown
on the sides of the heads! Blind-box or Open? Decisions, decisions…

The Making Of A Mecha-Zombie Toasterboy: Work-in-Progress


Each figure is hand-grinded / sculpted by Erwin The Mongar, and will be hand-painted by him = this is hardcore DIY-indie work, folks! "Technically" there are 10 x figures, but there's a "surprise" in the selection :)

Creating Mecha-Zombie Toasterboys


Conceptual sketch of MECHA ZOMBIE TOASTERBOY ARMY by Erwin = half-zombie-flesh, half-cybord! With a over-toasted slice of moldy-bread and a couple of loose wires, he wrecks havoc for the sake of mankind! (my torrid initial concept sketch is shamelessly posted below for guffaws - like the slice of bloody flesh-bread? ) ... heh.

In The Beginning

The day the Earth fell to the unnamed Alien Invaders and the
Zombie Plague unleashed by them, the human race hide amongst the
mountains of the world. And with the armies of man perished in the
war, and manpower dwindling, the remaining mortals had only one chance
to continue the fight - they turn to their scientists to reanimate the
zombie-undead by fusing them unto walking-exo-machines! And now the
cyborg MECHA ZOMBIE TOASTERBOY ARMY fights for mankind!

Erwin of Mongar Toys had wanted to do a MechaZombie, and I knew I had wanted to do a story / premise that anchors the concept, and perhaps is a start to the subsequent storyline which will produce more characters and figures. I am not looking at one-off releases, I am looking at products that are all part of a greater story, a lore of epic proportions that ties in to the releases. Also, I know I want to have fun with what we come out with, so here we have the very first custom-release planned: MECHAZOMBIE TOASTERBOYS!
