NEW POST: Rich “@umetoys" Page recently revisited one of his previously sculpted figures, Jeremy, and redesigned him to be in-line with the "GeekWok" release… Pictured above is the header card line drawing of "Jeremy" while below is the new sculpt, both of which might make Star Wars fans think of the short Jawas of Tatooine… except, this time, he’s not going to be scavenging for technology, he’ll be after your heart. At this point very little is known about this upcoming release, aside from the fact that "his eyes will be cast in clear yellow resin with a GID powder." Follow Rich Page on Twitter for more up-to-date information on this roughly 3-inch tall resin release.
NEW POST: After the previously announced first edition of the “GeekWok” figure sold out in minutes, Rich “@umetoys" Page took pity on those of us who missed it and will be releasing a second colorway, the Green Edition. Sporting a green hood reminiscent of his home on Endor, this little 3-inch tall chap is sure to please! Limited to an edition of only 20 pieces, they will be available on January 10th, 2014 at 1PM Pacific time in the @umetoys online shop for £32 (approx. $53) apiece. http://dlvr.it/4gH7cw
NEW POST: The other day, when we revealed the prototypes of the officially licensed “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” line, we were sadly missing the fifth and final set’s reveal: the Chewbacca-centric one. Pictured above, we can now see these @wearetado designed pieces that are being produced by @togetherplus Industries and Hot Toys in the near future. On display at this past weekend’s Hong Kong Toy & Game Fair, this set includes not only Chewbacca but also Han Solo and Greedo! Needless to say, we can’t wait for this series to come out! http://dlvr.it/4fvT0q
NEW POST: After almost a year of silence on the matter, the previously announced & officially licensed “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” line was spotted on display at this past weekend’s Hong Kong Toy & Game Fair. Designed by @wearetado, these adorable pieces are being produced by @togetherplus Industries and Hot Toys in a series of sets, each comprised of three figures of differing sizes. These are merely painted prototypes and still a work in progress, but we were able to locate detail shots of four of the five sets, missing the Chewbacca-centric one sadly…
Above left is the C-3PO set, which has the large protocol droid figure accompanied by his nearly constant companion, the astromech droid R2D2, as well as a scavenging Jawa, notable for initially selling the pair of droids to Luke’s family at the beginning of A New Hope. Above right we find a trio of Jedi in the Yoda set, the revered staff-wielding master paired with Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Above left is the bounty hunter set, featuring fan favorite Boba Fett as well as Bossk and Zuckuss. And finally, above right, we have the Jabba the Hutt set, which packs the crime lord’s majordomo, Bib Fortuna, and court jester, Salacious B. Crumb, with him. http://dlvr.it/4f71Kx
