More Exclusives & Collectibles for #ToyConUK 2016
With ToyConUK primed to launch April 9th in London, here's a quick glance at what else will be available at the one-day-only-event (In addition to the detailed features on TOYSREVIL). Alas, this is far from complete, but is currently available ia my social media feeds.
Feel free to check out further product details and updates via the Instagrams I've listed here, for which this is primarily a picture-heavy post instead.
Seen up top is 2PETALROSE packing up his figures - some of whom have been previously featured HERE - and they look absolutely phenomenal, methinks!
We've featured his Kaiju Onslaught Wave 2 before, but James Freckingham AKA ROBOTI INDUSTRIES will have much more at the Fugi.me table for ToyConUK!
Stay connected via his Instagram @roboticindustries!

As I had mentioned at the beginning of this post, this feature is far from the full listing of exhibitors for ToyConUK … and as designers/artisans have chosen to promote themselves in the recent years (as opposed to sending in news to toy-news peddlers like the TOYSREVIL-blog :p), I would firmly suggest that said designers/artisans describe as much deters as they can/could about their products and where folks could get them, and how much etc - not just for folks who will already snatch up their products, but also for folks who'd discover their/your work, and want to find out more.
But then again, we are in an age of "pretty pictures", and "implies" buying seems to be a thing of the recent past, as more and more artists join the scene, and the wallet is stretched - well, at least for me anyways LOL
Enjoy the event, regardless!
