Toycon UK is almost upon us! Hooray! This week we’ll be posting up some of the goodies we’re planning on having on our little stall.
First up is the first phase of a very special project…
We’re super proud to have joined forces again with fellow Sheffielder and wood-carver extraordinaire Nick Hunter to create the first in a new series of releases called Panda Otaku.
Panda Otaku is a new long-term narrative project that will follow the adventures and misadventures of Jerry; take-away delivery driver, social recluse and obsessive otaku.
The first release in the series is the Panda Otaku Vol.1 ‘Au Naturel’ edition, which will be available at the forth-coming Toycon UK, to be held 6th April in London.
Each 6.5″ hand-carved solid wood panda comes with 2 cameras (lucky dip of Polaroid, Leica, Rolleiflex or SLR versions), as well as a miniature ‘gentlemens comic / magazine’.
Each figure is individual, and all slightly different. They’re finished with a coat of protective beeswax and come packaged in a spectacular laser-etched comic shop display box.
The entire product is very proudly made in Sheffield!
However for people unable to attend, there will be a very limited number available to pre-order via the TADOShop after the Toycon event. Hooray!
We’ve got a whole bunch of other new products that we’ll be releasing at the London Toycon, including a second edition of Panda Otaku Vol. 1, which we’ll be posting pics of very soon – stay tuned for further updates and more insight into the story of Panda Otaku!
