MIll_2

Artist Rich Page has been hard at work on the latest addition to the ever growing UME Toys family, introducing the creepy-yet-cute Millard Buckston! Standing at a lofty 7″ tall, the figure has been hand sculpted by Rich using Super Sculpey, coming painted in a monotone palette of block acrylics and washes. Unfortunately just a one-off at present, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a limited resin run at some point in the near future…

Never one to rest on his laurels, the mighty Paul Kaiju has already started to give us a glimpse into what we can expect in 2015… starting with this jaw-dropping “Powered” Boss Carrion teaser! Whilst the above pic is all we have to go on at present, it would appear that the figure will largely stay true to the original Boss design, albeit in a larger scale and with elements from both Mockbat and Slugbeard thrown in for good measure. One of many projects we’re sure the artist has underway for the new year, we’ll be keeping ear to the ground for more news on the figure soon…
