With Spiderman marking the first release in Medicom Toy‘s Marvel Retro Sofubi Collection just a couple of months back, the Japanese toy giant returns with Wave 2… featuring none other than Iron Man and Ultron! Based on what appears to be legendary artist John Buscema’s take on the classic characters (he was of course the original creator of Ultron alongside Roy Thomas), the near 10″ tall figures have been sculpted by BearModel with coloring from Monsters Stock Farm. Currently available to Japanese customers through the Medicom store, international customers can find the pair on the Rakuten Global Market right here for just 8,640yen ($80) each plus shipping. Up for grabs until November 30th, shipping is expected in late February 2015…
Celebrating sequential and comic art of all forms, the Thought Bubble Festival is the largest of it’s kind in the UK. Starting on Monday (November 14th), the week long event features a number of workshops, competitions, film screenings, signings, panels and book launches across Yorkshire, finishing off with a two day comic convention at the Saviles and Royal Armouries Halls- Leeds largest conference venues.
The comic con is set to feature over 300 exhibitors, artists, and writers including the likes of Tim Sale (Spiderman), Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead), Martin Conaghan (Burke and Hare) and Gary Erskine (Dan Dare). The art toy community will also be out in force at the event, with the likes of indie designer UME Toys representing the scene in style.
Rich of UME has created this one off Iron Man custom for the event. Standing at over 8″ tall, the piece was hand sculpted using a mixture of clay, metal and wood. Unfortunately Rich hasn’t made it clear if this one will be up for grabs…
There will be a “bunch of other crap” (their words!) available to purchase at the show though, including their infamous UME Kittens, sketch pads, sticker packs, sketches and custom zombie toys. They’ll be at table 62, so if you’re going to the event, stop by and take a look at their amazing work.
UME are also running a competition to win a whole bunch of goodies from the team for all of those who can’t attend. All you have to do is follow both @Umetoys and @elmos_empire, and then tweet “want to win #UMETOYS stuff”. The winner will be announced through twitter on Monday, November 21st.
