Fresh from their first ever group show a couple months back, Soft Vinyl Garden will be descending upon Oz Comic Con with yet another shed load of goodies from the length and breadth of sofubi! With highlights including the first painted Sludge Fighter one-off from Mutant Vinyl Hardcore, custom Astro Skullbots and Zombitrons from Kenth Toy Works (pictured below), the debut of Miyajuana from PLT Toy, plus a reveal of Solo Is Toy’s Molochowl amongst many, many more, interested parties Down Under are going to need to make the trek to the Melbourne-based con this weekend to check out this incredible line-up. Opening its doors at the Convention and Exhibition Centre at 9am tomorrow (6/11) for 2 days of toy/comic-relayed goodness, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that any leftovers from the booth make it online soon after…

Following the test shot revealed over the weekend, ManOrMonster Studios can finally unveil the 2 all-new figures they’ll have up for grabs at Designer Con over the weekend!

MAN-E-UPDATE// The NYCC resin skulls from UME Toys…

Whilst we fully revealed UME Toys‘ NYCC skulls last week (find out more here), we’ve decided to take a another look at a couple of the designs that will be available come October time… First up, the absolutely gorgeous Copper Skull has been meticulously finished in a rich metallic spray, coming with subtle turquoise copper-oxide traces around the teeth, eyes and nose. Fastly becoming the “second” UME colourway, the copper tones suit the skull’s minimalist nature to tee, giving a real sense of weight and presence to an already amazing sculpt… Easily our favourite of the bunch so far, the zombie inspired Brains Skull was actually created from a cast that went wrong! Not wanting to waste the vast lump of resin, Rich ingeniously set to work in sculpting brains over the top to create the jaw dropping piece you see above. Painted in a mixture of bone and flesh tones, Rich has added subtle washes to create the signature weathered UME look… fingers crossed it wont just be a one-off!

Stay locked on the UME blog for more reveals as we get closer to NYCC, and be sure to keep an ear to the ground for a VERY special related announcement soon…
