Uncanny Critters – The Puck

puck-goblin-toy

Matthew Dennall - a startup toy maker based in Sheffield UK - has opened his UncannyCritters online store...featuring his first available creation - The Puck. Puck is the first in a series of toys that will be based on old British folk​-tales. "Pucks are forest Goblins, who are viewed as the most dim witted of the tree spirits, often thought by other fairy folks as being no smarter then a young dog."

The nearly 4-inch tall toy will be cast and painted by the artist. He's painted a classic green on the flesh and then an autumn reddish brown for the bark that grows from his skin. The figure features articulation in the forearms and head.

The Puck is now available for preorder, and Matthew will begin shipping out the toys on December 5th 2014. They're available to order now for $49.00 each.

REVIEW: Asmus Toys’ 1/6th Scale Gothmog

Asmus-LOTR-Gothmog-01

Background

When you think of the greatest film trilogies, there are several that come to mind: the original Star Wars trilogy, Toy Story, the Godfather (the first two make up for number three), The Dark Knight, the Dollars Trilogy, and The Lord of the Rings. If part of your criteria is a solid number one through three, you could do a lot worse than Peter Jackson’s take on J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic.

The Lord of the Rings toy license is still going strong over a decade after the release of The Return of the King. There are few film-related toy licenses that continue to generate that type of interest. One of the newer toy companies to take a shot at The Lord of the Rings is Asmus Toys.

Asmus, which produces 1/6th scale figures based on the license, recently released the Gothmog collectible figure. According to lotr.wikia.com, Gothmog was the lieutenant of the Witch-king in the Third Age, from Minas Morgul, notably present at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
