With ToyConUK 2017 only FORTY DAYS away we are jumping aboard the hype train with full force today! Earlier we brought you news of our heavyweight custom toy show CUSTOMANIA which will be our headline act at ToyConUK next month. However, we bring you another awesome news story that will more than likely overshadow the announcement of CUSTOMANIA… The Toy Chronicle are happy to announce that we’ll be bringing WHERESCHAPPELL as our guest at TCUK!
‘Where the Wookiee things are’ will be @toyconuk in 2 exclusive ToyCon colours! #toycon #toyconuk2017 #toyconuk #bobafetish #bobafett #starwars #bountyhunter #whereschappell #wherethewildthingsare #returnofthejedi #letthewildrumpusstart #wookiee #letthewookieerumpusstart #wherethewookieethingsare #clay #supersculpey #supersculpeyfirm #resin #resinart #arttoy #resintoy #empirestrikesback #starwarsholidayspecial #holidayspecial #bobafettholidayspecial #prototypebobafett
We have been a strong advocate of WHERESCHAPPELL for some time now, but haven’t had the chance to meet with him face-to-face! We figured we set that right by inviting this resin champion down to London for the weekend so that you guys can also enjoy his presence (and artwork) too! Ian, as he is known to his mum, will be in attendance at ToyConUK all weekend and is bringing along a whole host of awesome things for you to buy. Ian has been working hard on his ‘Where the Wookie Things Are’ a take on Boba Fett hanging out in a Wookie skin. Ian will have TWO exclusive ToyConUK colourways available to purchase on the TTC booth. Jango Edition and Empire Editon (Only 5 of each version). These are currently in the works, so not pictured above. The four WTWTA that are pictured, will be at ToyConUK but only for show rather than for sale.
WHERESCHAPPELL will also have two very exclusive pieces available to purchase Spring Matsuko (pictured above) and Winter Matsuko (pictured below). Each of these will be limited to ONE of ONE! There has already been a ton of interest in these pieces, so no doubt they’ll sell out early on Saturday morning! All of WHERESCHAPPELL’s work are handmade from start to finish, and you can tell he prides himself on that – rightly so!
If you want to be in with a chance to own any of the above, you’ll need to make sure you’re at ToyConUK next month. Two days of Designer Toys at York Hall, Bethnal Green. Tickets are still available and can be purchased HERE.
