MAN-E-NEWS// The Heavy Metal Qee Custom Show revealed…

On passing through Covent Garden yesterday we couldn’t resist taking a quick diversion to Forbidden Planet to check out the newly opened HMQ (Heavy Metal Qee) Custom Show, and boy are we glad that we did! With a staggering 30 of the UK’s finest artists on board, each and every custom proved to be a winner; from Lunartik’s Hokusai inspired ‘Waves’ Knuckle Bear, to Robotic Industries’ meticulously recreated ‘Marshall’ amp, each interpretation took the heavy metal theme to a new and imaginative place. With the show running for another 2 days, be sure to head down for the close on Thursday (April 19th) at 6pm, where 22 of the featured artists will be on hand to talk toys, and more importantly, sign HMQ show books (read more here)!

Participating artists include: Jon-Paul Kaiser, Matt JOnes, Jim Freckingham, Fark FK, DMS, A Little Stranger, Lisa Rae Hansen, Michael Harrism, Zro, RunDMB, Chris Morris, Fadeworks, Sneaky Raccoon, Lunabee, Penny Taylor, Adam Lister, Hoakser, Alto, Mimic, Zukaty, Fordybo, Amigurumi Island, Tesselate, Jack Wade, Flatties, Mark Treharne, Rhys Inkbotz Brown, PJ Constable, Planet Domu, and Lex Luthor.

Check out all of the featured designs pictured below (advance apologies for the amateur photography!)…
