10616859_835474243164525_1005512722_n

With SGTCC opening it’s doors tomorrow morning, master toy maker Daniel Yu has just revealed a whole slew of figures that he’ll have up for grabs at booth AA90! To all those lucky enough to be able to attend this weekend, here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll be able to pick up…

The Footmen “Neon Tribes”- Previously featured here last week, Daniel’s latest custom Playmobil figure takes direct inspiration from the 1989 TMNT cartoon’s Foot Soldier minions – more accurately the Playmate action figure interpretations – featuring the same instantly recognisable hooded ninja design, albeit with Daniel’s super-fine attention to form and texture. Produced in a flurry of mixed neon resin parts and coming with neo magnet articulation, these will be up for grabs as singles (price TBC), or as a 7 piece “Super Set”, coming with an extra “shadow” Footman and retro mutagen canister!

Metalhead “Blind Anarchy”- Daniel’s other all-new figure Metalhead will also be making it’s debut at the con in a special “Blind Anarchy” run. Produced in various resin finishes, including standard opaques, metallics and pearlescents, the unpainted, unarticulated figures are due to be sold randomly “blind bag” style (price TBC).

Mystery Mortis “version 2.00″- The hugely popular Mortis mini figure returns for 2 new runs at SGTCC, the first coming in the form of a follow-up to the “Mystery Mortis” release! As with Metalhead, these static, 3″ tall figures have been cast up in a variety of different resin finishes – including neons, glitters and marbles – selling randomly “blind bag” style (price TBC).

Mortis “Noir”- Joining the “Mystery” run, Daniel has prepared yet another amazing hand painted Mortis run, this time opting for a sleek film noir inspired palette of dark greys, blues and black. Likely to be limited to around 10 pieces, pricing, as with the other releases, is still to be confirmed…

Peter Kato comes with the final part of his recent trifecta of releases with the introduction of an all-new figure- The Bad Knight! Originally due to be the follow-up to last years Ninja-Robo release, the figure was put on the back burner until Peter had a fuller grasp of 3D software, being picked up again earlier in the year and now finally seeing it’s first release. Standing at around 3.5″ tall – perfectly in scale with the Ninja-Robo – the digitally sculpted figure features a total of 7 separate parts, each coming cast by hand and individually painted by Peter himself. Debuting in a “Metallic Grey” edition of just 8 pieces, each knight is set to come packed in a custom screen printed box (pictured below), priced at just $40 plus shipping. Touching down alongside a fresh batch of Ninja-Robos for just $25 a piece, expect the Bad Knights in the Peter Kato store this Thursday, September 4th at 9pm EST…

As promised in our reveal of the Footmen last week, we bring you yet another mini figure that artist Daniel Yu will be debuting at SGTCC this coming weekend (9/6-9/7)… the awesome Metalhead! Once again using the trusted Playmobil figure as a base for his creation, Daniel’s beautifully sculpted figure takes elements from punk and metal – a common feature in Daniel’s work – infusing them with the mask of the Fanastic Four’s iconic arch-nemesis to dazzling effect. Standing at around 3″ tall and coming with magnetic articulation in the arms, the resin cast figure (proto pictured) is likely to follow a similar path to the Footmen; with a blank, mixed-part edition debuting at the con, and a hand painted run following soon after… Expect the full lowdown on all of Daniel’s SGTCC exclusives later in the week…
