Designer Con Exclusives from DeKorner Available Online Now

    Designer Con has come and gone but there's still exclusive stuff you can buy even if you weren't able to be there in person.  DeKorner has some killer toys available on their website right now, like this yellow Bunnywith from Alex Pardee.

Or this yellow and purple reticulated dice set from Carson Caitlin.

How about an Evil Smurk from David Flores?

Or get a bunch of little dudes in this yellow OMFG series 3 set. 

I've actually neglected to say anything of nonsensical value in this post.  I must be getting sick.

Seen at NYCC 2013: Tenacious Toys

    One of my favorite places to stop and gawk at New York Comic Con is the Tenacious Toys booth.  Benny always manages to get the most diverse group of exclusives together and present up and coming artists in a way that makes them look like super stars.  I would dare say that he is the first guy to ever hold signing events with artists who were making toys in their basements and not just the guys who were designing for the huge companies.  Tenacious Toys is like a great indie rock label that has all the majors waiting in the shadows to see what he does next.  And judging by the response they were getting all weekend, he's definitely doing something right that they aren't.  

    Their booth was loaded to the brim with exclusives that spanned the worlds of resin, plush, and vinyl.   A lot of stuff sold out, but there will be some leftovers available this week.  Sign up for their newsletter by going to so you can get in on them.  Meanwhile, check out some more pictures.

First Batch of NYCC Exclusives from Tenacious Toys

    The great blue takeover is happening at New York Comic Con this year courtesy of Tenacious Toys.  They have a giant collective booth with a ton of other folks that will form like some miniature city inside of the convention.  Word is they'll have their own post office, fire department, and grocery store, but I haven't been able to confirm this.  Seriously, it's gonna be huge.  These are some of the exclusives that Benny will have available just from his side of things.  Get ready to go into debt.

    MegaSeth is one of the best resin dudes I've ever seen and I'm glad I'll finally be able to see one in person.  This king of all that is metal from Lisa Rae Hansen is limited to only 5 pieces in this edition and each is hand made and only $60.  Me thinks I may need one.  

    Continuing with the blue theme are these Monster Embryos from Taylored Curiosities.  Pretty cute right?  I dunno how many were made or what they'll cost, but I'm betting they'll be cheaper than any cab ride in the city and a lot less dangerous.

    Is it a toy?  Is it art?  Will it unleash hellish beings who will wish to torture you if you try and open it?  Who cares (well the last part is kinda frightening to be honest) cause it looks cool.  Carson Catlin is a man with more patience than I've ever been able to muster.  You have to be zen-like to carve up toys the way he does with such precision.  Luckily these weren't all individually cut, or he may just have drive himself nuts.  Ten of these blue cubes will be available at $50 each.  

    Wait a second...this appears to be yellow.  How did this happen?  Just when you think you have a grasp on what's going on in the world they go and change things up on ya.  VISEone is the man behind this Zombie Goo figure and he will be at the convention to sign one of these 100 exclusives especially for you.  And they're only $40 each.

    Ok, all is now right with the world as we have returned to a more familiar shade of toy.   But talk about mixing it up.  We've seen resin, vinyl, and now plush!  Furry Feline Creatives made 10 of these hand made 15 inch plushies and they will be available for $40.  

    I'm sure there's gonna be more, but this is what I know about so far.  Go and say hi at booth #208.

Toy Art Gallery 4th Anniversary Custom Show featuring Paul Kaiju's Pollen Kaiser

    Toy Art Gallery has got to be one of the coolest places on Earth.  If you're into designer toys, it's like visiting the Great Pyramid, but without the risk of getting killed during political turmoil.  To celebrate their fourth anniversary, they sent out a bunch of Paul Kaiju's Pollen Kaiser figures for artists to customize.  The results are pretty sick and you can check out my favorite ones if you scroll down farther.  The opening reception for the show is tomorrow night from 7-10pm and the show will be on display through October 13th.

Evil Within Reticulated Box by Carson Catlin x DeKorner

    This thing is pretty crazy.  What you're looking at is a laser cut acrylic box within a second laser cut acrylic box.  It's exactly like that picture I saw on the news the other day of these dudes fishing that caught a shark that was in the process of being eaten by another shark.  Check it out:

    Pretty nuts right?  Carson Catlin designed this box and made only 10 of them in this yellow colorway exclusively for DeKorner.  They go on sale today at 10am Pacific time at
