Super Mondo Epic Review Time: Tenacious Toys Exclusives

    Look at me gettin all outdoorsy for this review.  You would think I was working for Bass Pro Shops or something.  Benny from Tenacious Toys asked me for my address the other day and since I've met the guy in person before I wasn't too concerned about what he was gonna do with that informations.  So I've waited patiently, not knowing whether to expect a box in the mail or a hit man (I get paranoid sometimes).  Luckily for me, it was the former and it was filled with exclusive toys that you can only get from Benny himself.  Now I shall share with you my thoughts on them.  Prepare yourself.

    The first picture you see up there is the Zombie Goo New York Comic Con Biohazard Edition.  You will also notice my heating and air conditioning unit on the left.  I never claimed that I was Annie Liebovitz.  VISEone is the man behind this toy that looks like it stepped (or crawled) straight out of a Stephen King novel.  In fact, I'm surprised he hasn't written a story about tubes of products that come to life and kill you.  Just think, you're going to brush your teeth one day and a hand reaches out from the tube and starts attacking you.  And there you are, just trying to prevent gingivitis.  

    It's a really weird toy to say the least, but I mean that in a good way.  It's weird because most designer toys are some sort of full fledged character, where this one is more like a snap shot of terror captured in plastic.   Does the rest of the zombie eventually come out of the tube to eat you, or is this his fully realized form and he's just as deadly the way he is?  There's a few different ways to look at it and maybe it will inspire someone to write a good story about it.  It pushes the boundaries of what a toy can be and that makes it an interesting piece.  As a bonus, the box also comes signed by the artist, which is cool because he lives in Germany and mailing big toys back and forth (it stands 8 inches tall) isn't cheap.  But you can get the whole thing right now for only $40!!! Try and get a designer toy this big anywhere else for that price, I dare you.  

    Alex Pardee's Bunnywith character has had a lot of ups and downs.  He's been transformed into everything you can imagine, and this time he has taken the form of one Jabba the Hut.  I've seen this dude online before but never in person, so I was kind of shocked at how big he was.  I thought that he was the size of a M.U.S.C.L.E. figure, but this is him sitting next to a 3 inch Dunny:

    That's a lot of intergalactic slug for only $12.  This is the perfect toy if you're a Star Wars nerd, a bunny nerd, a plastic Star Wars bunny nerd, or if you just fancy the color blue like Winona Ryder in Heathers:

    I wonder if she'll see this.  If so, Winona, you have now made my life complete knowing that you have read these words.  If not, I just sounded like a weirdo for nothing.  But hey, at least I have a cool toy to look at right?  And you can too if you would accept Bunnywith into your life in exclusive Tenacious blue.  

    I changed it up a bit in this picture and lined all these little dudes up on my porch.  I try to keep it unpredictable, so you'll come back everyday just to see what kind of shenanigans are going on.  Plus they wouldn't all stand up in the dirt without me burying their feet and getting them filthy.  I'm trying to keep these guys as pure white as possible.  This is the Tenacious exclusive white OMFG series 2 figure set.  Though you don't have to leave em plain if you don't want to.  Paint em up and make em look fancy.  I just know that I don't have the required steady hand to paint something this small without making them look like Marilyn Manson caught in a rain storm.  There's 5 figures total but I decided that the knight's puke could stand alone as his own dude, so if you agree with me then there are 6.  What's great about these guys is that even though they're small they pack a lot of detail, which is something that toys this size aren't always able to do.   

    Well there you have it.  I think I kept on topic through most of it, which as you know is hard for me to do.  All of these are available as we speak at  So go on, treat yourself to something nice.  You work hard and deserve it.

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.
