Geeka Geeka!


Here's the painted up Geekachu. He came about after Mark Troup​ suggested he would look cool as a cosplaying pokemon fan. Do you think I should do a limited edition run of these guys?

Drum roll please…



Here is Friday’s big news from team UME!
If you’ve ever come and seen UMETOYS at a convention you’ll always find me (Rich) and Mrs UME (Jay) fronting the booth, what you may not know that over the last year or so Jay has been sculpting in secret and sewing awesome cosplay costumes with @elmos_empire
It’s been a long-time coming and after a lot of arm twisting I’m pleased to announce that Jay will finally be having a resin collectable release of her own under the UME banner. What can you expect to see? A high quality resin piece and something completely new for UME, hand stitched clothing! We are still working on final details but if you’d like to keep up-to-date with the development and grab a peep behind the scenes head on over to Instagram and search for @mrsume you never know there may even be a launch give-away so get in quick.
PS Jay is the one on the right in the photo

Commission anyone?


Inbetween casting all the Geekwoks for the Easter release just finished up this little undead gutbuster. If you'd like a commission peice made drop me an email :-)

Can I take your bags?

 
Amidst the glitz and the glamour of 1930s Hollywood works Barnabas Baggott a humble bellhop at the premier tinseltown hotel The Grand Majestic. This monumental hotel is like no other and their clientele are the elite of Hollywood's rich and famous but deceased stars.

Barnabas Baggott is my release set to be launched at ToyCon UK​ (and then online via the UME store) - sculpted, cast and painted by me. He stands 6 inches tall with articulation at the neck, sporting a removable hat and an aged suitcase. Barnabas is a chunky little chap with a quality weight to him.
