MAN-E-NEWS// The “Buford Mandrake” resin figure from UME Toys x JPK…

For_Sending_To_Blogs_Mandrake_Small

Once again sharing a booth at this year’s ToyCon UK, Jon Paul Kaiser and Rich Page of UME Toys have teamed up for a very special collaborative figure for the event… the murderous surgeon Buford Mandrake! Inspired by the real-life doctor of Charring Cross hospital, the 4″ tall piece was hand sculpt and cold cast in copper by Page, with aged, oxidised washes from JPK. Coming complete with the butcher’s infamous pair of masks (featuring interchangeable magnetic articulation), Mandrake has been limited to just 10 pieces, priced at £35 each. Dropping at the UME x JPK booth this Saturday, April 12th, we suggest acting quick on these or the doctor may just give you a bedside visit whilst you sleep!

Another artist we were finally able to catch up with at ToyCon over the weekend (however brief!), the lovely Penny Taylor of Taylored Curiosities brought along a mesmerising display of aroma-plush, one-off mini sculpts, resins (including a cheeky proto of a forthcoming collab with Alto!), and of course, the hotly tipped Giant Monster Embryo customs. Easily one of the show’s highlights, the beautiful display featured pieces from some of the art toys scene’s finest, the remainder of which have now been put up in the Taylored Curiosities web store… Joined by the original ToyCon exclusive ‘Brilliant Blue’ edition, the impressive 2.5kg+ hand cast resin figures range in price between £225 for the production piece, right up to £433 for Nervis Wrek’s Nibrian custom. Head over here for a closer look, and stay tuned for more news on ‘that’ Alto collab soon!
