New Tall Titfers

Tit for tat – Hat.
Get ahead! Get a hat! In this case literally.
In Mechtoria any object from a building to an item of clothing may in fact be a sentient person with their own opinions and desires.
So putting together a harmonious outfit may take on an entirely different meaning.

For ToyCon UK I have created a very limited hand painted edition of just 10 pieces of each of the three Tall Titfer characters.

Each figure comes with a real solid cast metal key.

There is the Black & Silver “Mourning” Topper, Burgundy Red Bowler and Teal Fez.

Each will be only £55.
Any remaining after the show will be offered online.

Thomas Nosuke – Sofubi Launch

My first Japanese produced Mechtorian toy is launching on March 23rd.
With a different edition following each week after that.

“Tiffanyblue” is the first release on the 23rd, at 11:59 p.m. (JST). After that, the second edition will be on March 30th and the third on April 6th at the same time, but the specifications of the figure (the color of the finish) will not be revealed until the day before it’s release.

There are 40 pieces of each edition being produced.
Five each for AP and PP, and the remaining 30 will be sold online.
All of them will come with a resin bonus miniature accessory in the style of the space pistol that was used in the 1956 Sci-Fi Classic, “Forbidden Planet.”
Thomas can be made to hold it.

He could feel that potential inside..
Tickling and wriggling to be free.
Once he unleashed it, he would be unstoppable!

Mini Mechtorian AP Sets

November saw Kidrobot launch series 2 of Mechtorians collectible mini figures.

This is a huge thing for me.
Since the original series was launched back in 2006 I have been working to get a sequel series released.
Over the years I have gone down several development paths with several companies. All of which ended for one reason of another with nothing released.

But last year the mighty Kidrobot stepped up and offered to usher more mini Mechtorians into the world.
And what a stunning job they have done!
I could not be happier with the results!
The figures are wonderful..

On December the 3rd at 6pm UK time my AP full sets will go on sale via my online store.

Each set of 14 characters comes individually signed and numbered.
They are housed in a point-of-sale display box such as you would find in a store.

In addition, each set comes with a mini print featuring line work for the figures in the series. This print is exclusive to this AP set.

There will be 20 sets available.
Each set is £250 (shipped).

The blindboxed 3″ tall vinyl characters are also available now from Kidrobot direct as well as all their stockists worldwide.
Look for them wherever Kidrobot toys are sold.
