Tenacious Toys Exclusives for New York Comic Con

     Booth number 780 is the place to be during this year's New York Comic Con.  You can actually just forget about every booth but the one run by Tenacious Toys because they will have everything you need in order to have a good time.  I may be a little biased because that's where you can find my Permafrost Edition Nordic Lucky Cat.  It's 4 inches tall, made of solid blue and white marbled resin, and limited to only 10 hand numbered pieces.  And at only $40 each you'll still have plenty of money to take your significant other out to dinner and explain to them how you are now part of the great heathen army and we sail at dawn to raid England.  How many other toys can claim to make your life more exciting just by owning it?  I'm gonna go ahead and say none.

   Of course that's not all that Tenacious Toys will have available for your collecting need.  I put most of them here for convenient perusal.  All the info you can possibly need is in the photos to help you gear up for this year's convention.

Tenacious Toys Exclusives for Five Points Fest

   Five Points Fest is happening in Brooklyn next weekend and we are starting to see those ever important exclusives pop up online.  Tenacious Toys will be holding it down at booth number 426 and were kind enough to put detailed descriptions in each picture as if they anticipated that I would be running late for work today, limiting my ability to make witty comments about each.  That's forward thinking at its best.

Tenacious Toys Exclusives for Five Points Festival

    Five Points Festival is this weekend which means it's time to forget any sort of budgeting I've been doing and spend some cash like there's an asteroid headed towards Earth.  They say you can't take your stuff with you when you die, but you could glue it all together beforehand and make a pretty banging tomb that celebrates your love for inanimate objects.  Tenacious Toys will be there to help you decorate your inner chambers in high fashion with all of their convention exclusive releases, such as the Resin is King series 4 blind boxes.  At $30 a pieces. each blind box will contain a resin figure from one of the following artists: Renone, TobyArt, UME Toys, Forces of Dorkness, Eyehart Toys, Pickman's Vinyls, Leecifer , One-Eyed Girl , Kyle Kirwan, Dollar Slice Bootlegs, and Abe Lincoln Jr (with sculpting by NEMO and casting by Jacob JAMS).   There will be tons of different paint schemes and even golden tickets hidden throughout that are redeemable for awesome things.  

    You'd probably think that would be all, but you'd be so wrong that you're parents now feel ashamed of you.  Now check out this list of other items Tenacious Toys will have available just for you:

Forces of Dorkness (Nature Warriors 6in OOAK resin figure series) 
Nerviswrek (Inner Child Greyscale handpainted customs) 
Rampage Toys (Cyclops Dinos Painted sofubi sets of 3) 
Taylored Curiosities (Huoli Guadians resin figure sets) 
Dollar Slice Bootlegs (Blue Chrome Slaughterbots) 
Cat Atomic (pins & customs including a Finalist in Custom Category in the DTAs!)

Pickman's Vinyls (Dick Wood - Log Private Eye resin figure) 
Naptime Noah (various customs on many platforms) 
• NEMO & Dead Hand Toys (Danger Dog blue resin figures) 
Manly Art (stickers and more

   That's a lot of stuff and it's all going down at booth #229.

Tiki Geekwok from UME Toys

   I've been thinking I need a new hobby for my days off other than being depressed.  While it sounds like the greatest to my teenage inner self, I could be out there having more fun at the expense of others, which is the best kind of happiness.  So I've been inspired by this toy to carve bizarre wooden idols and place them randomly along the side of the road.  I basically just want to start a panic that pagans have moved into the area and may or may not be trying to unravel the moral fiber of the citizens.  This would probably work better if I didn't live in New Jersey, because everyone here is a Godless heathen who are too jaded to be truly effected by my artistic endeavor.  Back to depression it is!

    I'm just kidding of course.  About being depressed, not the people of New Jersey.  I stand by that.  UME Toys is about to unleash the newest incarnation of his GeekWok figure, this time in tiki form.  Add some cuteness to your collection when these drop on April 8th at 9pm London time, which I love to type cause it feels so fancy!  These will only be available through

Tenacious Toys Exclusives for New York Comic Con

    Just so we're clear, these are not nearly all of the exclusives Tenacious Toys will have at New York Comic Con.  They've got so many that I've gotta take it slow or I'll get overwhelmed and not be able to function.  So let's examine a few of my favorites.  

     I don't get all the hatred towards the Ewoks.  In fact, I didn't realize that people didn't like them until that whole Jar Jar Binks fiasco in which people were forced to remember all the reasons George Lucas pissed them off.  Let me tell you, if I just destroyed the reign of the Galactic Empire with a bunch of delinquents I would expect teddy bears to sing (literally) my praises too.  Lay off the poor Ewoks, people!  UME Toys loves the Ewoks so much that he has decided to preserve his popular Geekwok figure in carbonite forever.  And it's a special Tenacious blue carbonite, which makes it even better.  Only 10 of these exist and they will be $55 each.  

    Can you call a woman something worse than a hag?  I mean, I know there are words that I won't mention here that society has deemed far more scandalous, but hag just sounds so harsh.  Literally, go ahead and say it, and put some anger in your voice when you do.  That's a word you save for special occasions, like if someone kicks your puppy or something.  Rampage Toys and Skullheadbutt have definitely captured the ideas that word conjures in this figure.  Not that I haven't kissed worse looking girls, because I was after all a teenage boy once, but this chick looks like she's doomed to a life spent alone in the woods whose only visited by stupid kids that were dared to knock on her door.  We all know how The Blair Witch ends so you better leave her alone!  Limited to 5 figures at $150 each.  

    Has the economy ever really recovered or have we just gotten used to being poor for so long that we accept this as the new normal?  Well I for one haven't and that's why I'm so cheap.  I buy the store brand bread, and the bo bo cereal that comes in a bag, because I try to save my cash for stuff I really want.  But I also want to get value in the stuff I want, and that's why this pack of figures from the Sucklord is exactly what this world needs now.  You get 10 mini figures for only $20.  Ten figures!!!!!!  That's enough to stage your own epic pretend wrestling pay per view.  They're limited to 40 sets, so I'm expecting 40 Youtube videos of these guys wrestling each other or I'll be sorely disappointed.  

    If this picture is any indication, that new Star Wars movie is gonna take a really disturbing turn.  Evidently hard times have fallen upon one of our favorite droids, and he has been forced to earn his space credits the only way he knows how.  I'm probably gonna have nightmares about this.  Forces of Dorkness is the demented mind behind this figure, which would have scarred my childhood had many other things not already beaten it to the punch.  This freaky robot is limited to 20 pieces at $50 each.

   Check out all this and much, much, much, more at both #208 starting Thursday.

Special Friday the 13th Undead Geekwok Release from UME Toys

    I never trusted those Ewoks, cause nothing that cute should be able to take down the Galactic Empire.  They're tricky little teddy bears with an agenda they have yet to reveal.  What, you think they're content living in trees and catching random folks in nets ( who they were more than happy to barbeque if you'll recall).  I bet you they ate all the captive stormtroopers and probably sold their armor to cosplayers to fund their evil corporation they were working on.

    UME Toys is bringing out the Dark Side of these fuzzy critters with his Undead Geekwok.  Perfectly timed for a Friday the 13th release, each person that buys one of these undead nerds will be entered to win a clear version of the standard figure (sans dangling guts).  If you want one they will be up for sale tomorrow at 9pm London time only from

More NYCC Exclusives from Clutter Magazine

    New York Comic Con just opened it's doors, and while I won't be there until tomorrow, there is plenty to see and do right this instant.  Clutter Magazine sent me an email filled with all kinds of nutty stuff you're gonna want so let's get to it shall we.

   Fact:  Bears have skulls the same shape as human beings do.  It's on the internet, so it must be true.  Luke Chueh only made 15 of these Dissected Bear Heads in Kenner prototype blue, with 5 being released each day via an 11am lottery system.  The lottery last 15 minutes, after which time the winners will be announced and then they get to buy this dude.  No lottery today, only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so you have time to plan accordingly.  

    Tim Clarke is a legend.  The day he followed me on Instagram I almost pooped my britches.  This dude not only created Boglins and Sectaurs, but he worked on The Dark Crystal with Jim Henson.  We're talking about things that defined people's childhoods.  He's got a new toy series out called Totims and he will have a bunch of those and those prints you see above.  He'll be hanging around Saturday starting at noon and if you're gonna shake anyone's hand during the show, his would be a good one.  Maybe some of the magic will rub off.  

    Ron English is obviously not as big a fan of breakfast cereal as I am.  And I love Cap'n Crunch, even though it shreds the rook of your mouth like you were chewing razor blades.  This is the latest edition of his obese faux pirate, and it will be released Saturday at 1pm and Ron will be there to sign em and tell you the dangers of high fructose corn syrup.  

    I've been in a few fights in my day.  Most of those involved dust ups in my high school cafeteria and certainly never with anyone that looked like this.  Who would fight this guy?  I don't care how bad you think you are, when you see a guy dressed like this and with such an unpleasant look on his face, you need to move along.  Restore made this glow in the dark Neo Japan in such uber limited quantities (10) that he will be sold through a lottery system on Saturday at 2pm with the drawing taking place 15 minutes later.  

    Saturday is gonna be busy for whoever is manning booth # 504, cause at 3pm Jon-Paul Kaiser and UME Toys will be present to release their Buford Mandrake figure.  He comes with two masks, though which one is more disturbing is open to debate.  Meet those fine English gents and pick up this collaboration piece that is sure to be a hit, cause I said so.

    Ok, this is pretty killer.  We've never seen Jeff Lamm's Greasebat figure  Lana Crooks hand made five of these stunning plush toys and I hope there is one left just so I can see it in person.  

    The Flyers lost last night and I'm kinda bummed about that, but they did play pretty well.  And I love the orange and black no matter what and this lizard bro makes me thankful that there's another game tonight with which they can redeem themselves.  Chris Ryniak's Snybora has long been a favorite of mine and this paint job from Squibbles Ink and Kirby Kerr makes it even closer to my heart.  Only 25 folks can own one though, so you better be quick if you wanna play with him on the ride home.  

    Visit the Clutter folks at booth #504 for all that you see and more.  That kinda sounded like something a game show announcer would say.  I need some sleep.

Sippy Shortstraw Pink Punch from UME Toys

    It has been scientifically proven that the Coke Slurpee is the most superior beverage on the planet.  No, I don't have the data handy right now, but have I ever lied to you?  Why, just last night I had one and it was quite delicious.  Even those splitting headaches you get from brain freeze are not enough to deter me from wanting one with every meal.  

   I don't know what type of concoction Sippy Shortstraw has hidden in her belly, but in a perfect world it's totally Coke Slurpee.  This happy refreshment container is the work of UME Toys and you can add one to your collection today at 9pm GMT.  Each one stands just under 3 inches tall and is all hand made out of resin and unicorn tears.

GeekWok from UME Toys Releases Tonight!

    Ahhhh time to get back to work.  I hope you all had a good Christmas and didn't get stuck with lots of socks or pink bunny footie pajamas.  I've thus far managed to get toys every year of my life and I plan on keeping up that level of consistency until I'm dead.  You have to have goals.

    Look at this GeekWok from UME Toys.  Now is he really a geek, or is he one of those hipsters that think if they wear big glasses that people will find them interesting?  Ewoks would have been the perfect hipsters because they were already growing their own food and taking Instagram pictures out in the forrest long before it was cool.  This guy looks legit though, and he's probably the one that designed all their fancy tree houses.  Only 20 of these hand made dudes exist and the go on sale today at 9pm GMT through

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.

More NYCC Exclusives from Tenacious Toys

    I could really go for a Slurpee right about now.  I looooooove Slurpees, but only the Coke ones.  I'm not very flavor adventurous and the Coke one is so good that I have never in all my years on this earth felt the need to deviate.  I did have a dream last night that they made whiskey Slurpees and I tried one and became an alcoholic.  See what happens when you try new things.  You end up in rehab.  

    New York Comic Con is on the horizon my friends and that means I'm gonna tell you about more exclusive stuff.  This batch will all be featured at the Tenacious Toys booth #208.  Sippy Shortstraw from UME Toys has kickstarted my Slurpee craving this morning.  Just look how happy he is.  It's probably cause his beverage is carbonated and the bubbles tickle.  Or he farted.  Carbonation will do that to ya.  This little resin guy will be $40.

    This guy isn't looking happy at all.  Maybe because he's got a case of the undeads.  Soko Cat made these Zombie Candy Corns that look like how I feel if I eat to many candy corns.  I'm not good at candy.  I'll buy a bag of candy, eat two of them, and then not want candy anymore for 6 months at which time what I bought has now gone bad.  I know, I know, "first world problems".  These will be $45.

     This is the physical manifestation of how most people feel about the Ewoks.  Still not as annoying as Jar Jar Binks by any means, but people really do hate them.  I can't remember feeling one way or another about them when I saw Return of the Jedi for the first time.  I was so mesmerized by the fact that they showed Darth Vader's face that there could have been an army of Barbie dolls that helped overthrow the Empire and I might not have cared.  These guys from Killer Bootlegs are pretty cool though, and proof that Endor was a rampant breeding ground for rabies.

The Grump from UME Toys

      I've managed to stay alive this long by adhering to a few simple rules:

1.)  Don't eat vegetables.  Vegetables are nothing but propaganda fueled by the farming industry.  And they taste like crap.

2.)  Accept the fact that all women are born dangerous.  

3.)  Never trust anyone wearing a potato sack on their head.

      Number 3 shouldn't surprise anyone really.  When have you seen a guy with a burlap hood out helping old ladies across the street?  Never, because they usually have a machete in one hand and a severed head in the other.  

       The Grump may make me modify my thinking slightly, as he's kinda cute.  He may be just a miniature serial murder in training, but at only 3 and 1/2 inches tall the worst he could do is bite your little finger.  UME Toys have made 13 of these to be released, coincidentally I'm sure, tomorrow Friday the 13th.  He releases at 9am GMT at

Scamwave from UME Toys

    Let us continue our journey into the world of famous characters given a nice artistic reboot.  UME Toys has released this Scamwave figure today based on everyone's favorite evil cassette player.  Anyone could paint an action figure a different color and call it a day, but this is what makes this unique.  It's all hand made and a completely unique vision.  Only 5 of this edition will be available and they will each come with a set of blueprints and a mini print.  You better get on it son.
