Blinky Allsop – Ivy Green Edition

The popular 2.5″ tall resin Mechtorian figure Blinky Allsop will be released in a new hand painted colourway especially for ToyArt in Leeds.

The show exclusive edition of only 5 pieces.
£50 each.

All lovingly hand made in England, each piece has it’s own winding key, is signed & numbered and comes in carded bag packaging.

An industrious and mischievous little fellow.
Blinky is able to turn his hand (or rather his prehensile mustache) to just about anything.
Though he has never really got to grips with Macramé.

New 8″ Dunny

August the 10th sees the release of my latest 8″ Dunny with Kidrobot.

Travithick’s Cognition Enhancement Engine

Brains are the latest thing!
Nanoclockwork is taking the world by storm.
Super fast and super compact. The ultimate in cognitive engineering.
A must have item for any Mechtorian undergoing a re-fit, to bring them into the new information age.
Ronson Travithick found a way to create super miniaturised clockwork mechanisms and employed them as the perfect system to generate brains.
A thousand times more complex, faster and smarter than the previous system of pulleys and levers installed in most Mechtorian heads.
Combining this with some patented Teslastein Static Injectors, enhances the process even further.

Sporting a clear head enclosing a transparent brain with inserted electrodes, this is my most complex Dunny to date.

He will be releasing on Friday, August 10th on www.kidrobot.com at 10:00am MST.
He will also be available from all Kidrobot retailers worldwide.
And I will have a small number of APs available very soon.

P.S. (There is also an exclusive Kidrobot edition…)
