With only 12 days to go until ToyConUK 2016, its time to announce our roster of artists for 2016! We have…
And on top of that our very popular bargain bin from last year will be back, but with new stuff, and much more stuff!
Just to get you excited and moist, here’s a slew of images showing what The Droid Factory will be bringing to the booth! (click on the images to enlarge)
Can’t wait to see all your faces!! ……
As well as some brand new colour ways for the Job Bots, we have a super cool new range, “Kaiju Onslaught”, “KO” for short.
Priced at £50 a set, and super limited, these will be available on a first come first served basis.
Atomic Newt stands at 3″ tall, and comes with a 4″ square base, bundled with a tiny tank and a tiny police car. The clear resin flame can be removed, and the police car fits in newts mouth. We will have 3 sets available on the day, each in a different colour, purple, green & turquoise.
Blobzilla stands at 2.5″ tall, and also comes with a 4″ square base, made from gorgeous clear resin, with a tiny police car floating inside, and bundled with 2 tiny tanks. The bases for both Atomic Newt and Blobzilla tesselate so you can build your own tiny cityscape. We will have 3 Blobzilla sets available on the day, 2 Green, and 1 Pink.
We also have some beautiful new colours for the cheeky little Job Bots, purple and green. Making a total of 4 colours so far, our previous orange, and the exclusive Toy Chronicle blue colour way. We will have 3 Lukes and 3 Theos in Purple, and also 3 Green Lukes and 3 Green Theos available on the day. Priced at only £35 each. Beautifully perfect hand painted resin, bagged with header cards. And don’t forget the Job Bots are interchangeable so pick up a couple and start mixing and matching.
We also have some great surprises from robotic industries on the stand, in the shape of some bargain Mecha Aztecas, some seriously rare DIY Mecha Aztecas, and a sneak preview of Jims very exciting future release.
The 5th of March sees the 1st release of â€œJob Botsâ€ by the amazing Robotic Industries. Luke & Theo are both 3.5â€ tall, and on this occasion will be in a rather charming orange colour-way. Priced at just Â£35 each, they will be available exclusively from www.fugi.me, dropping at 7pm London time. There will only be 4 of each bot available in this first phase colour-way, so you may want to set your alarm, and prepare for some F5 action.
The most exciting thing about the Job Bots, is their interchangeability. Each bot comes apart in to 3 sections, head, body and legs. They can then be mix and matched to make your own unique Job Bot. Illustrated in this video click here. Future releases, new colour ways, and new robots will also have this feature, so before long you will be swapping until your hearts content. Robotic industries have hinted at the next bots having tire tracks.
We are as excited about these as you are, and are already having lots of fun taking the job bots apart and putting them back together in new combinations. To give them extra character their head joints are at a slight angle, so just turn their head a touch for lots of extra cute!
