Hot off the heels of our recent “Villains” post earlier today, Eric Nocella over at Argonaut Resins reveals possibly the sweetest NYCC exclusive yet… the UME Toys custom 8″ Tuttz! Limited to just 2 pieces, each figure has been painstakingly cover by Rich in his signature UME Kitten doodle. Available in either UME Pink or Blue, the Tuttz even come packaged in custom boxes that have been given the same artistic treatment! To be joined by a super-limited run of just 3 bronze finished Fletcher x Tuttz minis (pictured below), the UME Tuttz will be available from the Big Kev’s GeekStuff booth (#3261) starting Friday Oct. 12 at 10AM. Stay tuned tomorrow for a look at Eric’s last exclusive, the super special guest star resin debut from Carbon-Fibre Media!!!
Following our look at the debut castings from UME Toys’ youngest member Elmos Empire just yesterday, we’re proud to present the first fully sculpted and cast figure from the promising teen… the absolutely adorable Lulu magnet! Based on a recent custom piece, the cute little piggy has been painted in a mixture of flesh and black, finished with subtle pink detailing. Measuring around 6cm wide, the magnet will be touching down in the newly opened Elmos Empire store this Friday (August 31st) for just £7.50 plus shipping… each coming with the now standard Elmos Empire header and hand cut sticker!
It appears that Rich over at UME Toys has finally realised the benefits of child labour(!)… as the proud dad reveals the first resin castings from youngest UME clan member, Elmos Empire! Pictured to the left is a very special edition of Rich’s popular Hugo magnet… each lovingly hand cast and painted by Elmo herself (is it just me, or do they look better than the originals?)! Coming packaged with a unique header design plus oinktastic sticker, these unfortunately (for us!) went on to sell out in a matter of minutes- here’s hoping for a second batch soon! Joining the Hugo magnets, Elmo has also been working with Rich on the moulding and casting of the latest UME addition, Fletcher the cat… as you can see from the pic the figure is well on the way to completion, so expect custom paints from the pair to be revealed soon!
“Remember last years UME Kittens? Well here’s their fat Daddy, Fletcher!”
Following our exclusive peak at the UME Toys x Man-E-Toys “Dita” figure last week, Richard Page is proud to reveal the addition yet another feline to the UME fold, the adorable Fletcher! Standing just a little taller than the original UME Kittens (approx. 3″), the portly cat will be making his way to the UME resin labs if Rich gets enough interest over the next week… Fingers crossed we’ll be seeing a whole host of painted runs and one-off customs soon!
