Ume Toys cooks up a holiday resin surprise photo
Ume Toys cooks up a holiday resin surprise
by Brian Szabelski

Rich Page, better known as the guy behind Ume Toys, has a new release in time for the holiday season. He's bringing us a little sweetie called Plum, derived from the fact that she's actually plum pudding. There's a little holly berry/leaf topping on top of the gooey pudding insides, but the whole thing isn't edible. It is just a 3-inch-tall resin figure, after all.

Ten Plums will be up in the Ume Toys shop for 28 plus shipping, starting at 9 a.m. GMT (4 a.m. Eastern, 1 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday.

NYCC exclusives round-up: Designer toys
by Natalie Kipper

New York Comic Con is almost upon us and I am sure those planning on attending already have their heads swimming with thoughts of lines, swag, and those ever-elusive exclusives. And, while we can't help you out with the first two, we can make sifting through that long list of exclusives a little easier.

After the break, you will find the NYCC-exclusive designer toys, divided into figures and plushes, with booth numbers, prices, and edition sizes provided. If we previously covered the toy on Tomopop, we threw in that link as well. Hopefully, this will help with planning and make your con experience easier. Keep a look-out for the companion piece to this post detailing the comics toys! Oh, and happy shopping!

Ume Toys' The Grump is back and more miserable than ever

Beware, for Ume Toys' The Grump rises on Friday the 13th
by Brian Szabelski

Friday the 13th is usually considered an unlucky day, but you're in luck if you're a Ume Toys fan. A new resin figure, The Grump, is coming into the Ume Toys shop that day. He looks a bit spooky with that burlap bag head and button eyes, paired with a scary scowl ... but he's also only 3.5-inches tall and not living, so you don't have to worry too much about him doing something evil. I think ...

The Grump has been cast in a run of 13 pieces, each £28 plus shipping and on sale at 9 a.m. GMT (5 a.m. Eastern, 2 a.m. Pacific) this Friday.

Ume Toys' Mini Merc is a handful photo
Ume Toys' Mini Merc is a handful
by Brian Szabelski

Ume Toys' latest resin piece is a familiar little fellow called Mini-Merc. The 3-inch resin figure is based on a certain merc with a mouth, and is a hand-sculpted and hand-painted piece with some fun detail to check out. What's even cooler is that his head is attached by magnets, and you can remove it (as seen here), just like a certain mercenary we all know. 

Only 10 of these have been made, priced at £35 each, for the Ume Toys Shop. Seven remain at the time of this post, but they might not last for much longer when word gets out. Thinking of picking one up?

Lolly is available in her Pink Punch colorway for £20 right now in the Ume Toys shop.
