Robotic Industries Presents Milo

Robotic Industries Presents Milo 1024 1024 dan

The Milo series of robots are used to complete some of the toughest and dirtiest jobs on Dr Brain’s island. Their small stature and virtually indestructible nature means that no matter what you throw at them and no matter how bashed up they get they are always ready for more!

At Toycon 2017 in London, Robotic Industries will be releasing his new Milo series of robots. Based on a Dunny body these figures have all new resin arms and heads with polished acrylic eyes. The release consists of 10 pieces in 4 colourways: Factory Fresh orange and blue (2 of each) and Well Worn orange and blue (3 of each). Each bot comes in his own protective packing case and will cost £45.

We have literally a handful of Milo’s left from ToyConUK, which are now available for purchase in our online store.

Take a beautiful bot home today!

The Droid Foundry at ToyConUK 2016

The Droid Foundry at ToyConUK 2016 2048 1674 dan

Brand new to the fugi.me roster, we have The Droid Foundry. Carrying on our underlying theme of robots, we will have 3 releases to present to you at ToyConUK this year.

Hoverdroids

Hoverdroids have anti-grav engines which enable them to hover and move over any terrain, their rear pulse engine on the central rotating section allow them to gain forward motion and change direction. Their AI units have been both programmed for autonomous and interactive work. They can work independently on tasks and where necessary, within groups, to complete bigger projects.

Because of how they are built to survive all weathers and inhospitable environments, many of these droids have survived in areas of the world where humans have moved away from as a result of climate change.

When left to there own devices these droids can link their AI and start to function and work within colonies, not unlike the modus operandi in ant/bee/termite colonies. Their basic survival programming seems to become more advanced and in many cases droids work together to build large shelter structures.

Hoverdroids will be priced at £25, and we will have 5 or 6 on the stand, each one unique.

Rollerdroids

Designed and manufactured to work in a number of roles from scouts to engineering, sentry to survey etc. Simple in exterior design they have proved to be both resilient and very adaptable, their roller tracks allowing them to work in many different environment types and enabling them to move very quickly should they need to.

Their AI units are hardwired programmed for the specific role they have been intended for.  Software programming can be used to modify tasking as appropriate to provide adaptability to new situations.  Rollerdroids can be biometrically imprinted which allows them to both recognise the human they are ensigned to work with and follow instructions fully.

Rollerdroids will be priced at £25, and we will have 5 or 6 on the stand, each one unique.

Droiddogs

Thought of as vintage now, Droiddogs were a product of the renaissance of robotics all those years ago. Droids, although always thought of as robots, were not limited to human form and Droiddogs were the personal droid to be seen with.

Of various designs and complexity many were just kept as robotic pets but many more were assigned to search and rescue, survey, military, guarding roles.

Droiddogs will be priced between £28 and £40 dependent on size, and we will have a handful available on the stand.

ToyCon UK 2015 – Robotic Industries

ToyCon UK 2015 – Robotic Industries 2500 2499 dan

ToyCon wouldn’t be ToyCon, without some delicious Robotic Industries releases. And this year is by far the best yet!

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.

As usual fugi.me & Robotic Industries are raising the bar!

ToyCon UK 2015 – Onorio

ToyCon UK 2015 – Onorio 1024 1024 dan

Its that time of the year agin, the big warm up for ToyCon UK! Excitement levels are high at fugi.me

As you may have noticed a few days ago we released details of our line-up. Robotic Industries, JustRobots, Crystal-Jade Vaughan, Ryca, Lisa Rae Hansen & Sergey Safonov. We plan on revealing each artists plans in a separate post over the next few weeks, and then a round-up at the end. But lets start with JustRobots.

Onorio will have 5 robots for us this year. As follows.

We will have 3 of each available at the show, and after that JustRobots will be taking orders.

Onorio will also have a bunch of his new badge design priced at £6 each.

We will also have some special JustRobots surprises, which I think we will keep for the day. But if I were you I would arrive at the booth nice and early.

Job Bots Phase 1 by Robotic Industries

Job Bots Phase 1 by Robotic Industries 1000 1000 dan

The 5th of March sees the 1st release of “Job Bots” by the amazing Robotic Industries. Luke & Theo are both 3.5” tall, and on this occasion will be in a rather charming orange colour-way. Priced at just £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!

Onorio’s line-up for ToyCon UK 2014

Onorio’s line-up for ToyCon UK 2014 480 480 dan

So ToyCon UK 2014 is only 2 weeks away! Over the next week I will be giving you the full low down on exactly what our booth will have in store for you. No more teasers, or sneak peaks, just the full details.

Today I would like to start by showing you exactly what the amazing “Onorio” has been slaving away on.

First up we have P.A.L. This beautiful robot is a one off, and comes in his own presentation box. He will be priced at £80. 7″ Tall with light up eyes.

Next we have “Rusty Bot”, a charming fellow. Limited to 6 pieces. Priced at £50 each.

Loving this little guy. His name is “Chunky-Bot”. Onorio will have 4 of these and they will be £35 each. Comes packed in a rather nifty little box.

This guy is Onorio’s latest creation, and he’s shaping up to be hella awesome. His name is “Strong-Bot”. We will have just 2 pieces of this guy, priced at £60 each. Presented in his own box.

Next we have the super cute “I Eats Flowers”. There will be 2 of the green version priced at £35, and 5 of the red version priced at £40. The red version comes with its own print. Both versions come packaged in their own boxes.

My favourite piece is this collaboration with Robotic Industries, “Dead Lolly”. 6 pieces each in a different colour. Sold “kaiju style” in bag with header card, a bargain at £35 each.

There will also be a very special “Toy Chronicle Blue” version, only available over at our good friends The Toy Chronicles booth. Again priced at £35 and limited to 6 pieces.

And last but by no means least are these beautiful pins. Priced at only £4 each, we will have 60, these will disappear quickly. I have been sporting one for a little while now and it gets lots of comments. We have named it “God Save The Queen”.

As you can see its a pretty impressive line-up, and thats just the first third of our booth. Lots more news coming over the course of this week.

Cris Rose vs Daft Punk

Cris Rose vs Daft Punk 1437 1077 dan

With the advent of the amazing new Daft Punk album, my obsession with our robot friends has continued to grow! It dawned on me that I needed more Daft Punk toys for my collection. 

So it wasn’t long before I realised that the perfect platform to represent Thomas and Guy-Manuel is the robotastic sprog by Cris Rose. I gave Cris a call, threw some money at him, and the rest is history.
