DesignerCon Exclusives from The Toy Chronicle

    You may have heard of The Toy Chronicle, the designer toys news website that pretty much has the lock on reporting nearly every release in this crazy niche world we've all found ourselves a part of.   Seriously, they posted five articles yesterday about toys people haven't even thought of yet.  Crazy, right?   And while it has yet to be proven that they have kidnapped the Oracle of Delphi, they do work hard sharing what they love with collectors all over.

    In a few weeks they'll be heading to DesignerCon and will have some special release in tow. As of right now I'm aware of two of their exclusives that are bound together by their common appreciation for the color yellow.  First up is BigShot ToyWork's popular Tiny Guardian Shi Shi sofubi cat.  Cast in school bus yellow, this kitty is limited to only 30 pieces, priced at $50 each,  and will both figuratively and literally brighten your day.  He's a beacon of friggin light, that little guy is.

    Next up is Dribble, who reminds me of that meme where the kitten has his entire muzzle covered in some sort of ick and then the bottom is captioned "I frowned up".  In case you haven't seen it here it is for your viewing pleasure:

      Like these figures, this post has developed a distinct theme, and that theme is KITTENS!!!!!  Dribble was created by Skeletonbolts and Choots and their six inch wide blobby drool monster is limited to just 5 pieces and will sell for $150 each.  Both of these releases and other assorted Toy Chronicle branded items can be had by visiting booth number 3424 during the convention.

Mark Hamill Exclusive Funko Pop Vinyl Figures for DesignerCon

      DesignerCon is only a few weeks away so prepare for your social media feeds to be inundated with releases that make your pupils dilate and your wallet wonder what the safe word is.  For those in attendance, may God forgive the thrashing you're about to do to your credit, cause there will be too much goodness to just window shop.  One of the more unique offerings that I've seen so far will be thees exclusive Mark Hamill Funko Pop Vinyl figures.  They come in two different designs, one in which he's keeping it casual and wearing a Lave Bear shirt designed by his son Nathan, and another where he is dressed as his most famous voice over role.  Now within those two designs there will different versions for you to collect, which you can see in the pictures I've included.  Those very same pictures also give you the very important locations in which you can procure said figures, lest you run around the show floor like a crazy person screaming Mark Hamill's name only to end up with someone recording it, selling it to TMZ, and you then you're forever remembered for your stalker-like meltdown.

    If you're going to try and get them all, because why wouldn't you, I'm going to copy and paste the info you need right now so you can plan accordingly, as the purple metallic edition is only available by purchasing an MVP package to the show.  So read this carefully because unlike your other friends, I just want you to be happy:
