Originally teased here last week, Richard Page over at UME Toys has just revealed the first test-pull of ScamWave… and it’s EPIC! A re-make of Rich’s incredible one-off Soundwave sculpt created last year (check him out here), the new version features a tighter, chunkier design than it’s predecessor, standing at around 7.5″ tall and now coming with a whopping 9 points of articulation. To be painted up in the familiar weathered navy blue and silver of the original, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a full reveal plus those all important release details later in the week… Keep track of the UME Instagram feed here for further developments as they happen!

MAN-E-NEWS// NYCC leftovers plu new works from UME Toys…

Whilst it has only been little over 3 days since Rich of UME Toys made his journey back across the pond from last weekend’s NYCC, the toy machine has been hard at work at not one, but THREE new projects- two of which are already primed to hit the store in the next few days! Here’s a quick rundown of what the relentless artist will be delivering soon…

Franken DeeDee// Following the huge success of the Zombie DeeDees over the weekend, Rich has been hard at work prepping another trio of halloween inspired customs in the form of the ever-so-cute Franken DeeDees! Painted in the iconic green and black of Frankenstein’s monster, and ingeniously finished with weathered bolts jutting out of the sides, the little guys will be making their way to the UME store at 9am on Monday, October 22nd for an undisclosed price…

UME Groper// Whilst over at NYCC, Rich was lucky enough to meet the lovely Triplikid- bagging one of his awesome pre-release Gropers in the process! As you can see, he wasted no time in getting to work on the awesome resin, painting the Critters inspired beast in the signature UME mix of vivid pink and blue. No news as to whether this guy will ever be available to purchase, so be sure to stay locked on the UME blog for further updates…

Pepper Popcorn// Last but by no means least, Rich is proud to introduce yet another must-have addition to the UME family, the adorable Pepper Popcorn! Standing at around the same height as DeeDee (around 2.5″), the stunning little figure even comes with removable corn hair! No news on how these will be painted up, the price, or even a solid release date, so expect an update soon…

On top of the slew of new releases mentioned above, Rich has also put up the various NYCC leftovers in the store for all of those that couldn’t make the event. Be sure to head over there quick though, stock doesn’t seem to be lasting long!


MAN-E-NEWS// The Halloween Dee-Dee NYCC customs from UME Toys…

Joining the huge selection of resins we’ve previously posted, Richard Page over at UME Toys will be squeezing in another 2 awesome customs into his already bulging suitcase for NYCC next week… the Halloween inspired Dee-Dees! Taking the much loved ice cream mini, Rich has gone for two beautifully simple designs, the mustachioed Little Devil, and the absolutely stunning weathered zombie. No news as to which booth they’ll be available at, but we’re guessing they’ll be making an appearance at either Tenacious Toys (#3121) on Saturday, or Kev’s Geek Stuff (#3261) on Sunday. Stay tuned for more exclusive UME Toys “NYCC” news (including a possible Man-E-Toys collab) soon!


MAN-E-NEWS// The UME Toys x Tenacious Toys NYCC charity raffle…

Joining a whole host of exclusives and future project reveals (including one or two in conjunction with us!), Rich over at UME Toys has announced that he will also be organising a very special raffle… the prize? The amazing Basset DKay one-off sculpt (originally posted here), PLUS a signed piece of original artwork! To be in with a chance of bagging the awesome figure, be sure to head down to the Tenacious Toys booth (#3121) and bag your ticket. Rich has stated that  all the proceeds raised will be going to the Susan G Komen cancer research charity… Fancy getting the man in questions autograph, or even a quick scribble? Then you’ll be glad to know that Rich will be on hand at the Tenacious Toys booth from  3pm Saturday 13th, and at the BIG KEV’S GEEK STUFF booth (#3261) along with the talented Argonauts Resins and Jelly Empire all Sunday. Stay tuned for more EXCLUSIVE reveals very soon!

The Bonehead Keyrings// Can’t wait for the NYCC Bonehead skulls to arrive?

Fletcher the Fatcat// Looking to collect funds for his imminent trip to New York, Rich will also be releasing a limited batch of latest UME addition “Fletcher the Fatcat” alongside the Bonehead Keyrings this Friday. Coming in an edition of just 6 pieces (5 bronze and one gold chase), the 3″ tall resins will be available for just £22 each plus shipping… Look out for more hand painted runs soon!

The UME x Man-E-Toys Dita the Cat// Last, but by no means least, we bring you an exclusive look at the finished sculpt for our first official collaboration with UME Toys… Dita the Cat!
