A look at ToyCon UK's wares and exclusives

Apr 02 // Brian Szabelski
Lunartik will be bringing two pieces with him to ToyCon UK. First, there's Royal Tea, a new Mini Tea Special Brew in a pretty white and blue pattern. It'll be a limited release of 200 Teas, each one signed and numbered, for £15 a piece. Also at his booth will be a 2.5-inch resin figure called The Royal Fail - Mail Bomb. It's done-up in ToyCon colors (pink, turquoise and black ... you will be seeing a lot of that color palette in this post) with a run size of 25 signed-and-numbered pieces, retailing at £30. He has also invited a special guest artist to his booth, but hasn't revealed who yet. Sergey Safonov is making the trip from Moscow for the show, and while he won't have his own booth, he'll be hanging out at some fellow artists' booths during the show. At the Hang Gang booth, he'll have a Grape Juice variant of Choir Boy Godot, the superglossy black Luno, and a black/GID Darkest Night piece. At's booth, Sergey is revealing his newest figure, Govra. It'll be available in two designs, Eclipse and Zenith, and there will also be a Govra print available. A signing will take place at the booth at 1 p.m. Creo Design is finally launching their 6-inch Lofing figure at the event in both regular and DIY versions. The regular version will retail for $40 USD (£27.50) while the DIY version will be $30 USD (£20), and will be runs of 300 pieces and 200 pieces, respectively. Remaining figures will be on sale in the Creo Design shop after the event.Also debuting at the show is Creo and Blue-Frog World's Masks of Doom, a series of resin masks for 4-inch Munnys based a bit on MF Doom's awesome mask; and Creo x dust's two pieces, AlterEGO and RAS2013. There's a lot of colorways available, so check the full release list on the ToyCon UK site.And of course, how could we forget all the custom QiQis? Most have been revealed, and you can find all the photos on Creo Design's Facebook album for the event.  Alto will have several pieces at the event. First, there's the Boxen of Oxen, four show-exclusive Little Ox variants. There's 10 of each, retailing at £25 starting at 10 a.m. GMT. And speaking of Little Oxen, new custom Little Oxen will be on display (and on sale) from Sneaky Raccoon, Ume Toys, Drew Millward, Mr. Lister, RunDMB, Lisa Rae Hansen and David Stevenson. Alto's Evil Origami will also be in attendance with the "Unfold" custom show going on tour. Pieces at the show will be those from Lisa Rae Hansen, Klingatron, Conzo, Effektive, Daniel Seex, Robbie Porter, Verity Keniger, Lindstrom Effect, Berg, and DMS. He'll also have a few blank Evil Origami available for £15 each. Then there's the new collab between Alto and DMS, Skelevex. The skull-shaped piece will be at the show in a variety of colors and finishes, according to Alto, and prices will be between £100 and £125 each. There will also be a raffle for two green flocked, wooden plaque-mounted Skelevex heads. Dudebox's offerings at ToyCon will include the remaining Dai Ocean and Bob figures they have in stock. Dolly Oblong teased something for ToyCon with muffinman ... and it's a Billy Brains version of Baldwin! Twenty will be available for £35 each. Also, there will be Dairobo papercraft and a Momo plush available, too. Tesselate will have his works displayed at the GenericArt booth (more on that later), and they include two new debuting members of the ED-IT JD team: C1100 (in two colorways) and the imposing Z9900_P. Also at the show will be new Keyeyes with TC keys (because ToyCon, right?) and special colorways of the B5100 and C1200 robots. Planet Domu will have two pieces coming with them to ToyCon. First is the Womo figure, a collaboration with RunDMB, of which a one-off custom will be at ToyCon for £80. Also debuting at the show is the War Tourist resin figure, a Domu x RunDMB collab, available in the 4-inch DIY version for £45. There will also be custom War Tourists from artists like Stu Witter, Pete Fowler Jon Paul Kaiser and A Little Stranger; see the ToyCon UK pager for full details. The Tarantulas are bringing a new trio with them: Chompy Man, 1983, and Bubblegum II. The three are apparently collaborations with Onell Design, Fig Lab and Real x Head, with prices to be determined, and Bubblegum II is the vinyl version of a resin figure from SDCC 2009. Jon Paul Kaiser is bringing a new sculpt, his Libertas skulls, in both regular and scribed versions. They use his trademark two-tone style, but the scribed versions have some scribbling on them. Secret code? Maybe ... maybe. Either way, 10 regular skulls (£65) and 5 Scribed skulls (£80) will be available at his booth during the show as soon as the doors open. Ume Toys will have some old resins, like Fletcher the Fatcat and Pepper Popcorn, that it appears he's bringing to ToyCon, but he'll also have a new dapper piece. Say hi to Harrington the Third, a fellow that's one part hat, one part mustache, and one part legs. The resin Harrington is 6.5 inches tall and five will be available at the show for £55 each. There will also be 5 Ditas available (in Hellfire red and black, cyan, Ume pink, cocoa and aged bronze varants) for £75 each. Squink! is bringing a new resin Dunny with him, Happy Dream Man; the little guy will be available in three different colorways for six total at the show. He'll also have a ton of custom vinyl and resin figures of all types, including his Dreamer resin figure, at his booth. Map-Map is promising to show ToyCon stuff soon, but looks like he's working on a custom resin figure. Okkle is bringing his Runts Zero series and a whole bunch of customs. He's been tweeting out what those customs are, including a Foomi called Spring Spirit, a little Trikky called Tinks, and a Raffy he's calling Tim the Giraffe Accountant, complete with glasses. Likewise, Haus of Boz has been tweeting out her customs for ToyCon UK. Not a surprise, they look wonderful. There's the Dunnypillar, Sky Devil, or a series of Huck Gee Rhinos called Black and White. Oh, and there's poop. Yes, a Munnyworld accessory customized and prettied up to prove that you can polish a turd. No photos yet from Cris Rose, but the promise of "50-60 bots for the show, plus an exclusive pin badge colourway and 3 new bot sculpts." Likewise, no news from Lunabee, but she's been tweeting teasers. Looks like lots of different types of custom vinyl creations are on the way! TADO have their Panda Otaku (in two versions), but they're also doing plushes, wooden keychains and resin figures! The resins include two new designs - The Hermazinger and Miss Panda Super Idol. Stitches and Glue are bringing their new release, BuBu, to ToyCon. He's apparently a little monkey in a cage; photos shall be forthcoming, I suspect. [UPDATE: Photos are in! Bubu is 12 inches tall and has arms that extend 65 cm in length.] The Hang Gang is your hangout if you like kaiju or sofubi, with exclusives in ToyCon colors from: Super7 (Mummy Boy and a Foster I will never have now *cries*); Max Toy Co.

Artransmitte has a few things from Super7 (a Casket Cruiser colorway), Dynamite Rex (Raaar!), and Brutherford Industries (the UK edition Ice Scream Man featuring a bowler hat). TOYSREVIL has the round-up already taken care of (and they're linking to it anyways), so check it out for a full rundown. Triclops Studio, long story short, is going to be bringing new figures for its' B.A.S.T.A.R.D. series. They've just been teasing them on their blog for most of March. is playing host to new releases from Rebel Scum and Robotic Industries. On the Rebel Scum side of things, the release is a new piece, Kawbanite, featurins a KAWS figure in a crunchy carbonite (actually resin) shell. Six pieces will be available total in two colorways, on sale for £35. Meanwhile, Robotic Industries says goodbye to The Rising with a final purple and black colorway, limited to five pieces and on sale for £30.
