Joining our massive Disarticulator sale last night, Richard Page over at UME Toys is the latest to make his huge selection of Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Con exclusives available online! Featuring the previously posted Suki Shrunken Heads, custom Boneheads, “Jelly” Jasons, various Ditas, plus the newly released Brandon the Crow, there really is something for all price ranges and tastes. Head over to the store here to check out what’s on offer- stock is disappearing fast, so we suggest acting quick to avoid disappointment!
Hot off the heels of the beautifully realised Darth Maul Bonehead posted earlier in the month, Rich over at UME Toys has set about applying the same distinctive weathered stencilling to nearly every single member of the UME resin family! Opting for a white on black skull design this time around (a nod to one of Rich’s earliest one-off sculpts, Skully), the impressive batch of 11 customs will be making an appearance at the Cardiff Tattoo & Toy Con later this month, with any remaining heading to the UME store soon after… Stay tuned for yet more UME CTaTC exclusives over the coming weeks!
With the UK’s next big toy event, the Cardiff Tattoo and Toy Con looming ever closer, Rich Page is proud to unveil the latest exclusive to be making an appearance at the UME Toys booth… the Darth Maul inspired Bonehead custom! Originally debuting at NYCC last year, the solid, hand cast figure has been given a full Sith make-over, featuring the solid mix of tight masking and meticulous weathering seen in a number of Rich’s beautiful one-off sculpts. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for more Boneheads featuring the same effect soon (revisiting last year’s Venom motif is at the top of our ‘want’ list!), but in the meantime we suggest you keep a close eye on the UME blog here for more exclusive reveals very soon!
Whilst a big departure from awesome custom bootlegs we’ve been posting recently, the lastest work from Jonathan over at DuBose Art and Design was just too big to be ignored… presenting the custom painted 1:1 Gillman bust! Standing at a monstrous 18″ tall, the long since sold out resin based on everyone’s favourite Monster Squad ‘baddie’ (sculpted by Jeremy Bohr and produced by Black Heart), has been lavished with layer upon layer of Monster Kolor sprays, resulting in the deeply textured, almost photo-realistic finish you see above. Available on the DuBose store right now, the absolutely breath taking piece can be yours for $375 plus shipping…
“In a world where flowers can let you spit fireballs, and mushrooms can make you grow instantly or even gain an extra life, eating the wrong mushroom can have terrifying effects…”
Chris Moore aka WeBecomeMonsters kindly share details of his latest one-off custom sculpt, “Ate the Wrong Mushroom”… Created for 1AM‘s upcoming GAME ON group show, the absolutely stunning piece depicts everyone’s favourite plumber in the unmistakable WBM style, featuring deep textures, grotesque flaps, multiple eyes and a suitably grimy paint job. As mentioned before this guy is unfortunately just a one off, but Chris has stated that the base resin figure used, entitled “The Hell?”, will be making it’s debut shortly… More news on that as soon as we hear anything!

UK based graffiti-cum-toy artist Hoakser proudly presents the latest painted custom of his debut resin figure, Maskedman… Designed and sculpted by the man himself, the incredible spray can/respirator mash-up stands at an impressive 9.5cm tall, with this unique one-off coming painted in Hoakser’s instantly recognisable grimy, blood splattered style. Priced at a wallet friendly £22.99, the piece can be found on the Hoakser store right here… The artist has informed us that he has many more colourways planned in the near future (plus some all-new resin figures!), so be sure to stay tuned for the full lowdown soon…
