Blinky Allsop

Blinky Allsop mini Mechtorian resin figure by Doktor A, Bruce Whistlecraft.

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.

This 2.5″ tall resin Mechtorian figure will be released in two versions at ToyconUK.
The hand painted limited edition of 25 pieces and the open edition in “Cold-Cast” Bronze.
Each one of the painted edition comes with a key and is signed, dated and numbered.
All lovingly hand made in England, each piece is signed and comes in carded bag packaging.

The painted limited edition will be £50 each and the “Bronze” edition will be £25 each.
After the convention any remaining pieces will be available online.

Anesthesia Vinyl Bust Launch

Anesthesia Veiled robotic lady Bust. Vinyl art collectible by Doktor A and 3D Retro. Sculpted by Bruce Whistlecraft. White Borley edition.

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest vinyl Art Collectible.

The classically styled bust of Anesthesia was inspired by the incredible marble work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881).

I sculpted the original piece in 2014 as a high end art sculpture. Now 3D Retro have transformed her into a stylish and affordable addition to your home decor.

I am very proud of Anesthesia as she is the first vinyl production piece of mine that I have sculpted myself. 3D Retro have done an amazing job in retaining all the tiny details of the original. The precision of the mechanical garland around her head is reproduced spectacularly. And the gossamer nature of her veil is just as effective in vinyl as in the original.

The new figures will be available from my online store on Friday 28th July.

There are three different versions available :


“Mourning” edition. A stylish black and silver design with purple hat and jacket.

The Brass edition. With summery light brown and grey attire.

The Steel edition. In a dapper black topper and coat. Sporting a cool bow tie!

Each comes bagged with a collector card.

Studley Billund had a dream.
A dream of total compatibility between all Mechtorians.
He dreamed of a world where people could help each other by lending a hand, a whole arm. a leg or whatever part
was needed at the time. A world where people could come together to build something greater than themselves by combining their unique abilities and unique parts for the greater good.
But people told him he was just playing.
His ideas were the dreams of a child.

He listened to them…..
Now he makes the most popular toy system in the world.

The figures are also available direct from Crazy Bricks in the USA.
