WeGo Customs for Toycon

I have created a mini edition of customised Mechatro WeGo robot toys from Sen-Ti-Nel and 1000 Toys.
These 1:35th scale ( about 3″ tall) Mecha have interchangeable di-cast metal and plastic parts and are super articulated.


I have put my Mechtorian spin on just 6 of these little beauties. Three Red and Three Teal.


Remove the chest plate to reveal their gears inside. Each one is different.


They will be available from my booth (35) at Toycon in London on the 29th & 30th April for £150 each.
Any remaining after the show will be available through my online store.

I am pleased to say I was invited to participate in the re-launch of Boglins.
This classic line of 1980’s toys has been reworked and reintroduced by Clutter with original creator Tim Clarke.

As someone who worked on the original line of Mini Boglins back then it has been fun revisiting these mischievous little characters and messing with them.
You can see all the artist’s versions at the Clutter Gallery from Nov 12th to Dec 2nd.

The piece can be purchased online HERE : https://shop.cluttermagazine.com/art-toys/hob-boglin-hoblinus-boglinum
