Firstly, we have the last ever official resin release of The Rising. In glorious purple, there will only be 5 of these made and they will all be the chase / bone version. To avoid everyone rushing us when our stand opens at 10am, we have decided to make these available by lottery. Tickets will be available all day from our stand, just come and ask us for one. We will draw 5 tickets towards the end of the convention and these 5 lucky winners will have the opportunity to make a purchase. You will need to be present for the draw. These will be priced at £30 each. As usual, they are 4 inches tall, however we have something different planned for the packaging.
Next we have something completely new from Robotic Industries, entitled “Dead Dog”. This amazing resin sculpture will be limited to 5 pieces, each in a different colour. Measuring 7” x 4” x 2.5” and packed in a presentation box, with a giclée print colour matched to the toy. Priced at £40 each, these will be available on a first come first served basis.
As if we weren’t spoiling you enough already, Robotic Industries have also produced a run of Ethan MK1‘s. These custom Mini Munnys come in at 5” tall, and will be available in 3 colours. Only 6 will be produced, 2 of each colour. With a completely new resin cast head, featuring a movable mouth. These will be priced at £45 each. They will come complete with a rather stunning acrylic display stand featuring laser engraved art by Robotic Industries to compliment Ethan. I have a feeling these won’t hang around long. Again, these will be available on a first come first served basis.
Robotic Industries has also found a limited number of the 2010 NYCC Dr. Brain lurking around in his studio/lab. He will be offering these at a special ToyCon UK price point. Only 75 of this 8” robot were ever made, your chance to own a piece of old school Robotic Industries.
We will also be holding a “The Rising” competition. We will have colouring cards available from our booth all day. Help yourself to one, take it home, colour it in, sketch on it, do what you feel. Scan it or photograph it, and upload to our facebook page. Myself and Jim will pick a winner and award you with your very own special 1 of 1 Resin Rising in a colour of your choice. If any of the entries are particularly awesome we may even make them available as giclée prints through the fugi.me website.
Phew!!! Gonna be an amazing day for everyone at ToyCon UK.
