Argonaut Resins at New York Comic Con

Argonaut Resins is previewing one of the releases they hope to have ready for this year's New York Comic Con. They're teaming up again with Robbie Busch, who designed the El Diablo figure on the left, and are planning on releasing Mini El Diablo. He will be 3 and a half inches tall and you can see a work in progress sculpt of him on the right. No word on price yet, but this is something I'm going to have to add to my "want" list when I'm at the convention this year.

Jared Deal's Vladimir will also be available at the con, but will have a slightly different look than the older release pictured above. Can't wait to see what the final product will look like.

Kidrobot Las Vegas

My wife recently went to Las Vegas for her manager's conference and was able to sneak away to the Kidrobot pop up store at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. You can check out all the pictures she took on our Facebook page at

Rudolph Vinyl from Funko

Funko has gotten into the vinyl toy market recently with a ton of releases from Star Wars, DC Comics, and Gremlins to name a few. This November they will be releasing figures from the popular Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer stop motion film. They will retail for $9.99 each and include all the major characters, including a few not seen here. I have a few of their other releases and they have done a pretty good job bridging the gap between urban vinyl and mainstream toy release. Plus, these guys are way less creepy in plastic than they ever were in that movie.

25% Off Everything in Stock from Toy2R

Ummmmm I guess the picture says it all. Oh, it's only for one week so you should go and buy a ton right now. See, I had a little bit to contribute to this.

All City Breakers from Kidrobot

Remember those little green army men everyone had as a kid? Did you ever just hope they would cut loose and embrace the urban rap scene of the 1970's? Yeah, me neither, but someone did and so I present to you the All City Breakers from Kidrobot. These guys are being released September 15th and will be blind bagged for $1.95 each. While not necessarily my cup o tea, I really do enjoy the boombox display they're packaged in and the fact that the blind bags emerge from the cassette player.

Star Trek Mr. Potato Head Box Set

These guys were announced quite some time ago, but soon they will actually be available to actually own. For $34.99 you get two taters, one featuring Captain James T. Kirk, and the other his arch nemesis Kor. I think they would have been better off making Captain Picard, because he is already bald thus eliminating the need for the hair accessory, but what do I know.

The Scribe from Jon Paul Kaiser

Jon Paul Kaiser and Toy2R have teamed up for some pretty cool releases this year, but The Scribe is by far my favorite. This dude just looks mean, which is a nice departure from the cuteness that is pervasive in the designer vinyl world. This guy will be making his debut at New York Comic Con at the Tenacious Toys booth and will only be $28. Plus you can meet Jon Paul Kaiser himself as he will be making an appearance at the convention. I think I'm gonna have to snag one of these while I'm there.
