Blind boxed toys drive me absolutely insane. I had pretty much sworn off of them as part of my twelve step program to curb my impulsiveness when buying toys. I had been doing so well, going through all the meetings, making amends with my creditors who I had blown off in favor of secret-filled boxes of figures. And then I see this, and not only have I fallen off the wagon, but I hit my head really hard on the curb and have lost all ability to be reasonable.
Husband and wife team Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas hooked up with Cardboard Spaceship to bring some of their most popular characters to life in this series. What's nice about it is that to own one of their resin pieces would set you back a step financially, but you can own their plastic counterparts for a mere fraction of that and retain the ability to have cable television. Today (January 22nd) at noon Pacific time, both Cardboard Spaceship and Circus Posterus will be holding pre release sales on full cases of these figures. As a bonus, each site has a different exclusive toy that will come signed by the artists. So it really comes down to which exclusive you want the most. Or if you're bad at decision making you can get them both and increase your chances of completing the set.
