On top of the recently posted custom Giant Monster Embryo custom and Monster Kolor mascot, the ever busy Richard Page over at UME Toys has been hard at work busting out a whole heap of ToyCon related customs and original resins- the first of which we proudly reveal to you today…

“Bronze” Dita the Sphynx// The first of many custom Ditas that we suspect will be featuring at the con, this beautiful one-off piece has been given the signature UME “bronze” finish. Standing at around 7″ tall and coming with articulation in the neck, the beautifully weathered figure comes hand cast and painted by Rich.

Project X// A figure we hold close to our hearts here at Man-E-Toys (it’s what first got us in contact with our good friend Rich!), we were delighted to hear that Project X is set to be resurrected for the con. Originally conceived by RunDMB, the stunning figure was sculpted by Rich at the beginning of last year, with retooling (including some new articulation) commencing recently. It’s still not clear as to whether the figure will be making an appearance in a limited run or as a prototype at the event, but you can be sure that as soon as we hear anything, you guys will know about it first!
