Quiccs – New Baby TEQ63 Drops for ToyCon UK 2016 (4.9)
While it doesn’t sound like Quiccs will be at ToyCon UK 2016 (4.9), his toys will be there in force. In addition to the TEQ63 Crew Zero One custom show with Martian Toys, he’ll also be releasing Baby TEQ63 figures at two booths. Collect and Display (booth #39) will have the exclusive Campus Heart Throb edition (10 pcs, £40 or roughly US$57) and The Toy Chronicle (booth #1-2) will be dropping BabyTEQ Starter Packs featuring three figures: OG Black, Ghost Mode, and a new School Bully Red.
Unbox Industries at ToyCon Uk 2016 (4.9)
Unbox Industries has an ace set of releases for ToyCon UK 2016 (4.9). Perhaps the craziest Lolgoth so far, the Gnazgaroth edition of Skinner’s almost incomprehensibly complex figure ups the ante with wooden eye inserts and detailed, multi-layered organic paint. Unbox will also follow-up the popular Witches series from John Kenn Mortensen with his new Vampire series, and in the process may very well push the creep envelope. Finally, yes, those are mixed-parts Mini Mockbats from Paul Kaiju. It sounds like all of these releases will be offered online sometime after the show.
Minty Fresh ToyCon UK Releases
Minty Fresh will release two new exclusives at ToyCon UK. Repping their signature color, they have clear green editions of both Byron and Rangeron (above) from Koraters and T9g.

Doktor A – Copper Creeps Series 2 for ToyCon UK (4.9)
Doktor A will release his new Copper Creeps Series 2 at ToyCon Uk along with several new customs including 3” Dunny pieces and more.

Martian Toys has the made the trip across the pond and will present The TEQ063 Crew Zero One Custom Show at ToyCon UK 2016. The show features artist interpretations of a special resin version of the upcoming TEQ63/Zero1 vinyl from Quiccs. Two figures in one—the signature TEQ63 and the futuristic Zero1—customizers had access to two different sets of heads and arms and the one common urban body. Hit the jump to see a selection of what they came up with. We’re curious to see how this dual personality will be presented for the production vinyl offering.

2PetalRose – Shogun Rebels: Hondo for ToyCon UK (4.9.16)
2PetalRose will introduce its new Shogun Rebels line with the debut Hondo figure at ToyCon UK 2016 (4.9). A continuation of 2PetalRose’s samurai lineage, the nearly completely scratch-built Hondo embraces the solider swordsman concept more than perhaps any of the previous figures. Mostly forgoing the ornamental, his gear is purpose-driven from his helmet and armor to the bo staff and katana.
As with previous releases, all of the fabric/material was custom-designed and printed. The hand-painted details elevates the piece—the stylized face is nicely done. The figure is fixed, though the head and flag can be posed. For dramatic display, Hondo comes complete with Shogun Rebels flag and magnetic wood base.
Eight (one-off?) Hondo figures will be available at the show in at least three colors: Red, Green and Blue for £230 (~ US$330). If you want one,
