Tenacious Toys NYCC Exclusives Available Now


     The idea of actually attending a convention and being in a crowd of wall to wall people seems way less appealing than dental surgery to me right now.  New York Comic Con was a yearly tradition for my wife and I but thankfully it was cancelled this year in an effort to keep everyone healthy.  Well, it's not cancelled cancelled, as they've moved the festivities online.  Tenacious Toys has a virtual booth at this year's iteration and they're exclusives are available right now.  You can get all the treasures you want without waiting in line, or eating weird convention food, of playing "guess who or what just created that smell."  Check out the pics and get yourself something nice at You deserve it.

Suburban Vinyl Exclusives for New York Comic Con

    Man it's getting down to the wire for New York Comic Con and I'm here scrambling to tell you about everything you're gonna want to track down the minute the doors open.  I won't be able to make it up there until Saturday, so I hope I'm not the last vulture to the corpse and all that's left are the toe nails.  That was a really disgusting analogy and hopefully you weren't eating when you read it.  

    SubUrban Vinyl will be holding down their usual spot at the giant Tenacious Toys compound, which is also known as booth 208.  Take a look see at a few of their exclusive items they'll have available for your toy shopping needs:

Exclusive Green Inner Child from Nerviwr3k x Suburban Vinyl

    Sometimes you shouldn't let your inner child out.  Job interviews come to mind, as do psychiatric evaluations, and parole hearings.  Applying for a gun permit is another, cause they kind of want to make sure you're not a nut.  But just about any other time is completely acceptable so I say go for it, especially if you'll get a good story out of it later.  Just remember that no matter how young you feel inside, you're going to be tried as an adult for jumping into the penguin enclosure at the aquarium.

    The time is nigh to obtain the third colorway of Nerviswr3k's Inner Child figure.  This sucker is clad in Suburban Vinyl green and he will be available exclusively from them tomorrow beginning at noon eastern time in store and online.  Three lucky purchasers will also win an original custom toy from the man himself by finding a special sticker in their box!

Tenacious Toys Exclusive Blue "Inner Child" from Nerviswr3k x Suburban Vinyl

    Why so blue panda bear?  Cause he's a Tenacious Toys exclusive, duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh.  It's kind of their thing, which I'm all about because I like consistency.  I like to know that I will never get a full night's sleep because one of the cats will knock something over, scare the others into a feline stampede, and ensure that I nearly have a heart attack.  I like to wake up in the morning and know that I have a delicious box of Cap'n Crunch waiting for me.  I like to think that if I mention how delicious Cap'n Crunch is two sentences in a row that maybe they'll send me some free cereal cause that stuff ain't cheap.  I'd like free cereal to become a consistency.

    It feels like just last week that I wrote a pretty baller review of Nerviswr3k's "Inner Child" figure.  Actually, it was just last week, so if you missed it you won't have to scroll too far back in the archives to bask in it's glory.  But before you bask, or afterwards if you promise to come back, you should know that this little monster is limited to only 125 pieces and will be on sale starting February 28th at noon eastern time only from  They will have the red version available as well.  This toy was produced by the fine folks at Suburban Vinyl

Super Crazy Blow Your Dang Mind Toy Review: Inner Child from Nerviswr3k x Suburban Vinyl


    I'm not a big fan of reading instructions.  It's not that I'm stubborn, I just kind of like to figure things out on my own.  That's why when I received Suburban Vinyl's first ever self-produced toy in the mail, I didn't read the box.  So let me, in all my mentally untainted glory, tell you what I think the meaning of this toy designed by Nerviswr3k could be, before I cave in and find out the real deal.

    The kid is looking kinda bummed as he peeks out from the rather dangerous looking mouth of this critter.  He could have just been eaten and is now going through a very slow period of digestion that has forced him to accept his fate all the while his extremities are dissolving and unleashing their nutritional value.  That would make anyone sad.

    He could, however, be the monster' sinner most self, whose innocence is betrayed by his outward appearance.  He just wants to pet puppies and mentor at risk youth, but people run from him in fear.  Seriously though, you gotta shave down those teeth if you want people to feel totally safe.

    Alternatively, the monster could represent the hard exterior one has to adopt in a harsh world to protect their feelings.  The monster is a suit of armor, while the true person inside has to go unseen until he feels safe.

    That's a plethora of theories I have there, so now it's time to consult the box.  It turns out that my third idea is actually correct!  I totally missed my calling as a therapist, cause if I can read a toy like this, just think about all the people I could help.  I'd probably get pretty bored though unless your life was REALLY messed up and you hooked me with your story.  I'll stick with the toys and try not to ruin any actual human beings.

See, here's the proof that I was right!

    One thing that really impresses me about this toy is how well they captured the nuances of the customs that Nerviswr3k is known for.  Many times details get lost when translated from one medium to the next, but this really has that raw feel that is a signature of his work.  It really comes through when juxtaposed with the smooth texture of the face.  The sculpt has got a ton of nooks and hidden spots that could have easily been missed or glossed over, but so much attention was paid to every detail, even the shadows under his eyes were handled with precision.

    And the thing still kinda frightens me in the same way his customs do.  I have no problem believing that they could be swimming around in my city's water supply, just praying to make it into a batch of delicious Kool-Aid and play Hungry Hungry Hippos with my cells.  But that's also part of their charm.

   Their will be three different colors of this dude: blue, green, and the red one you see here.  This red guy will be available starting February 21st at noon eastern time at your favorite toy stores.  Each color is limited to 125 pieces and will sell for $45 each.

You can actually see the article you're reading on the screen there!  If that didn't blow your mind you could almost see that I wasn't wearing pants when I took this!

Purchase A Raffle Ticket Now To Help Nerviswr3k

     It's easy to get cynical this time of year.  You're stressed out because you have a ton of shopping to do and no time to do it and when you go shopping the experience can be anything but festive.  You've got traveling to plan, long lines at the post office, and your credit card companies are close to hiring Boba Fett to help them get paid.  Many of us find ourselves caught up in these things instead of what this time of year is really all about, and that's celebrating your friends and family and putting the needs of other people first.

    Recently, a member of Nerviswr3k's family passed away, leaving behind a young girl to take care of.  Of course this is going to be a rough time for everyone involved, but with our help we can ease their burdens just a little and help make the Christmas season a bit brighter.  Tenacious Toys is holding a raffle from now until December 10th, in which for $10 you will get a sticker pack with donations from Renone, Abe Lincoln Jr., and Sticker Robot.  Every penny of that money is going directly to Nerviswr3k's family.  Didn't I say something about a raffle?  Each sticker pack you buy is one entry into a raffle for some killer prizes, including rare toys and custom figures.  To get a sticker pack see all the prizes that are available, visit this link.

Super Series Sunday from Tenacious Toys featuring Nerviswr3k

    My wife has a stomach made of cast iron.  Some of her favorite food in the world can be purchased from little carts that have the sanitary standards of a rest stop toilet.  

"Oh look honey, there's a man roasting some squirrel in an oil drum, let's check out his prices."

    I say that as a joke because I wouldn't actually point that out to her in case she took me seriously.  Once she ate an unwrapped mint she found in a bag of change just to gross me out.  I didn't kiss her for 6 months.  

    I would imagine she has critters like this living in her digestive system that just obliterate any germs she may ingest.  Spoiled food is like a suburban family driving through the worst part of town as it tries desperately to reprogram it's GPS.  You came to the wrong neighborhood son, and you won't be coming back.

   Nerviswr3k and We Are Not Toys made these hand painted resin critters for tomorrow's Super Series Sunday release from Tenacious Toys.  There are 12 regular figures and some chases thrown in just to make it exciting.  Get one blind box for $35 or a complete set of twelve for $350.  That's two figures free if you buy the set!!!!  They go on sale at 6pm tomorrow (December 8th) only from
