Hold on tight and get that notepad out (cool kids use their phones) as Angry Hedgehog x Geistwulf booth is ready to show you part one of what they have installed for Toycon UK 2017 attendees! We’ve already shown you a couple of releases destined for this weekend and now here’s some more goodness from Angry Hedgehog & Geistwulf and friends on booth T8.
Angry Hedgehog will be releasing Boo for the first time at Toycon! There will be 3 different types available: the Ancient Boo, the Deathly Boo, and the Corrupted Boo. Each is cast in resin, measures approximately 4 inches tall, and comes with a removable mask. There will be 3 of each available at the con, each costing £50. Any left after the con is over will then be sold online for worldwide customers.
Returning this year is The Hermit, a collaboration with illustrator and artist Catherine Unger. Originally released at Toycon 2016, there will be a small number available at the con this year. Each costs £35.
Angry Hedgehog will also have a number of pins available – logo pins priced at £5, and Ancient Boo mask pins for £8 (produced by Cream Lab, and also available at their booth)!
One of a few new artists to Toycon, Bubbafroux will be releasing her first toy, Kokako! This adorable little bat is approximately 15cm tall, and each will be £30.

Returning artist Colossal Miniatures will be bringing Colossus, the first in a new line of mix-and-match figures, this year. The Open Sauce Project (a collaboration between Colossal Miniatures and Angry Hedgehog) aims to bring a simple 5POA platform to artists everywhere, letting us all build awesome figures from parts made by different artists! Toycon 2017 is just the beginning for this project – be sure to ask if you’re interested in taking part! You’ll be able to take home a Colossus for £20 (unpainted) or £40 (painted)

Robotic Industries will also be on the table, with his signature high-quality, crisp pieces!
Milo: The Milo series of robots are used to complete some of the toughest and dirtiest jobs on Dr Brain’s island. Their small stature and virtually indestructible nature mean that no matter what you throw at them and no matter how bashed up they get they are always ready for more!
At Toycon 2017 in London, Robotic Industries will be releasing his new Milo series of robots. Based on a Dunny body these figures have all new resin arms and heads with polished acrylic eyes. The release consists of 10 pieces in 4 colourways: ‘Factory Fresh’ orange and blue (2 of each) and ‘Well Worn’ orange and blue (3 of each). Each bot comes in his own protective packing case and will cost £45.
Urban Iron: In the late 21st century groups of obsolete robots began to band together in gangs. These gangs could be mainly found in the metropolitan and industrial areas that they once worked, this lead to them being commonly known as Urban Iron. The most successful of these robots were the old Boxer units, their size and strength making them perfect for protection and extortion rackets.
Coming to Toycon this year is the 2nd wave of Robotic Industries, Urban Iron figures (the 1st was released at last year’s Toycon). These 1:12th scale resin robots feature fully poseable arms, neck and waist joints and will fit most 1:6th scale jackets and tops.
This year’s release differs from last years with the addition of “Van’s” trainers and either Motorhead or Black Flag logos under a high gloss lacquer finish (only the figure with the Motorhead logo will be available on the day). Each robot so far released has been unique with custom paint and decal applications.
Last but not least, Alastair ‘Vaguemonkey’ Fleming will be debuting his incredible Scrapbots this year! These 8-inch tall pieces will be priced at £80.
