MAN-E-NEWS// Beep the Hopbot and a peak at the first Martin Longbottom custom from UME Toys (UPDATED)…

Never a weekend goes by without the reveal of yet more awesome work from Rich over at UME Toys, and this one’s no different! Beep the Hopbot is another beautiful one-off sculpt, taking the iconic 80’s hip hop aesthetic and mixing it up with Rich’s instantly recognisable style. Standing at a sizeable 4″ tall, the adorable tracksuited bot has been lovingly painted in Rich’s signature palette of vivid blues, offering a great contrast to the subtle weathering that we’ve been seeing in his work recently. No news on whether this stunning piece is available to purchase, so our best bet is to hit Rich up directly at umetoys@googlemail.com with any enquiries…

Rich has also been busy a work in the UME resin lab for the past week, preparing for the imminent release of a certain Martin Longbottom! With more info to follow next week (including the reveal of an extra special edition!), we thought we’d share with you a shot of the very first Longbottom custom. As you can see, he’s still an early work-in-progress, but is already bearing the hallmarks of a great UME piece! Stay tuned for an update next week…

UPDATE//

It appears that just moments after posting the above WIP shot, Rich revealed the finished piece! Coming in the official Martin Longbottom green/purple colour scheme seen in earlier sculpts, this custom will unfortunately not be for sale- he’s already made a home at the UME studio with his bigger brother! Stay tuned for more news next week on the planned DIY Longbottoms, painted Martins and some awesome trick finishes…
