8532664504_d1999dcc5e_b

With ToyCon preparation almost wrapped up (expect a full reveal soon!), Richard Page over at UME Toys turns his attentions to another all-new figure design, as he proudly reveals the Cheech Wizard-inspired Harrington the Third! Sculpted in Rich’s unmistakable steampunk infused style, the rotund top hat wearing character is due to receive a ton more detail before heading into production, with additional hat decoration, a Victorian ‘tache and even a pair of arms a distinct possibility… No news as to whether the piece will make it in time for a ToyCon debut or not, but you can be sure any new information will be posted right here as soon as we here anything.


MAN-E-NEWS// The Night Terror resin from Matt A*…

After months in development and production, Matt A*‘s jaw-dropping Night Terror is finally available to pre-order! Hand cast and meticulously finished in an oily colour changing paint, the steampunk infused owl comes in at an impressive 16″ tall, with a monstrous 24″ wing span. Featuring a clear acrylic stand and fully rotating base, Matt A* will also be including the pictured custom skull cast, which fits snuggly in the creature’s claw. Limited to an initial 10 pre-order slots at the reduced price of just $200 (standard price $300), shipping on the figure will commence sometime in December 2012. Head over to the shop here to secure yours, and be sure to stay tuned for the bird’s public debut at NYCC in October…


MAN-E-NEWS// ‘Lambert’ custom Kracka from UME Toys…

“Lambert loves his match – don’t try and take it off him or he’ll kick off metal dragon hidden fire style.”

Rich over at UME Toys has sent us some pics of his latest custom pieces, the first coming in the form of ‘Lambert’ the clockwork dragon. Painted in an expertly weathered bronze colour scheme, with a heap of extra sculpted detail (including a beautifully ornate clockwork key, and of course, the obligatory UME monocle and ‘tache!), the custom Kracka was created for Andy Kelly’s (@ZombieKel) forthcoming ‘Dragons Custom Toy Show’ at the Sho Gallery,Cardiff, August 18th 2012. More news on the exhibition soon…

“Come down if you can as there’s going to be many awesome artists/pieces to check out and if you’re lucky you could score a custom and help out a great cause in the process.”

Second up comes ‘Goose’, a mixed media custom sculpt created by Rich just for fun. Based on a witch doctor inspired scribble from a while back, the worm infested beauty should be available to purchase from the UME Toys store some time soon. Here’s hoping Rich will produce a line in this style at some point; the stick thin legs, instantly recognisable sculpt, and considered use of colour would surely make one awesome production figure…
