Frank Kozik @ SDCC Day 1

mFrank Kozik is no stranger to conventions but this is the first year he had his own booth at SDCC. As usual, fans crowded his booth before he was even allowed to start selling. Labbits and Ika Gilas were available and of course the chilled man himself was all too busy wheeling and dealing with his fans.

MunkyKing @ SDCC Day 1

The folks at MunkyKing were putting up the finishing touches to their booth as the door opened for Preview Night at SDCC. On display were  2 colorways of Luke Chueh's Possessed, the regular white version and a black/gold version. Although they were not available at SDCC, you will be able to get a special all-black version of the devil mini-fig that is part of the full Possessed toy. 100 of this mini-figure will be  available  for Luke to customize starting tomorrow, with 33 pieces released each day.   Thomas Han's Pushers protos made a surprise appearance at the booth. There are a total of 4 versions: Human, Animal, Angel and Devil. Human and Angel were on display tonight. Another new toy from MunkyKing is the La-La by Kii Arens, which has magnetic feet and lights up. Finally take a sneak peek at snow boards from Cameron Tiede.   Remember, check our downloadable schedules for a run-down on artist signings at SDCC.

STD @ SDCC - Booth 5029

STD Toys (hmm, interesting name) -- Slick, Tony (founder), and Dez made its official debut in Booth 5029 sharing space with Merit International.  STD showcased two of the Doodle Barn figures (1 thin, and 1 more portly) from Dez Einswell.  Each has an outer jacket/shell which can be lifted off the figure -- so you get two distinct looks in one figure.  There were three colorways on display -- standard, gold (apparently limited to 30 pieces), and a black DIY edition.  Slick on the other hand was showing his new Shaolin Monk mini-figs.  These are quite cool -- cute yet fairly detailed and varied.  As you can see there are several variations with different facial expressions and accessories. The older gray-haired monk looks really interesting as does the monk with the long traditional chinese Q hair style.   We'll definitely do some followup on these as right now we have more questions than answers ;)

Preview Night - Kaching Brands / Level 5 @ SDCC

Kaching Brands may be a newcomer to the vinyl scene, but you'd never know it by the large crowd around their booth.   People are definitely curious about the company and their many toys on display -- the buzz seems pretty upbeat.  The first thing one is likely to notice about the booth is the elaborate 2 story setup -- definitely raising the standard a notch or two.  The main action is downstairs with several display cases filled with new toys -- production pieces for sale and prototypes of upcoming figures.  The 2nd floor will aparently be a "chill" pad.  The sheer number of figures on display here is pretty staggering. 

We took a few brief pictures on preview night (wed) but we'll have a much more complete set tomorrow.  There's definitely much more to see!  Until then enjoy this small advanced look at the booth.  Briefly, pictured in this set are the two Dumb Dummies figures by Toby HK: Holy, the very large boxer (missing a chunk out of his ear!), and the Toby figure patterned after the designer himself.  Additionally, there's a group shot of several of the FLCL 12" Canti figures.

Kidrobot @ SDCC Day 1

SDCC started off with a bang, a bang from a fork lift dropping boxes of merchandise. Opps!! Someone is not going to have their products!! Luckily it wasn't a vendor we were interested in, like Kidrobot. With a line of surprised toy releases for the remaining days of SDCC, Kidrobot, booth #4529, started off Pre View Night with the sale of Dunny Series 3. Besides, the 2" fellas, there was a 60" Munny waiting for artists to doodle on. Here's a up close and personl look at the Series 3's chases and Gary Baseman putting his mark on the gaint toy.

UnklBrand @ SDCC

Unklbrand has an exciting lineup for this year's SDCC at booth #4632 with the release of three new series of figures on July 20th thru the 21st.  Let's dive in ;-)

B1.2 4 Blu Lu

B1.2 5 Greene

B1.2 6 Sharkey's Machine

HazMaPo B1.2 Train Series: Release Date July 20th

B1.2 4 Blu Lu
A Former Cleaner For the Mob, she now spends her time more Nobly- as choreographer for the Pittsburgh Steelers Cheerleaders. Her free time is spent hunting for javelinas on her ranch in Waxahachie, Texas
Favorite Food: Kolaches

B1.2 5 Greene
A once proud satellite dish salesman and proponent of the crew cut can be found scamming European car salesman. He’s a sucker for the mayonnaise and isn’t afraid to share it.
Favorite Food: Tuna Dog’s

B1.2 6 Sharkey’s Machine
Only has one eye but always on the prize. A devoted father and Olympic enthusiast, his next goal is compete in the Summer Biathlon (gymnastic floor exercise + precision target shooting).
Favorite Food: Snuffer’s Fries

The HazMaPo's roll on with these cool new editions.  Mini-figs for the post-apocolyptic age ;-) Series B1.2 offer color variations of the recently released B1 HazMaPo's. 




JunPo Series 1: Release date July 21st

No one is sure how long the JunPo organization has been around. Like the Samurai or the illuminati, they have existed as a secretive global faction passing down their mission and way of life from generation to generation.


Base of Operation: Finland
Day Job: Crab Fisherman
Specialty Task: Deep Sea Rescue


Base of Operations: India
Day Job: Janitor
Specialty Task: Urban Clean Up


Base of Operations: Thailand
Day Job: Backhoe Operator
Specialty Skill: Subterranean Mole

The JunPo's are looking good.  These echo the vibe of the current HazMat suits more than any of the previous UnklBrand figs.  The arm detail is quite nice.

D 56 

E 57

SUG Series 2: Release date July 22nd

In 1955 SUG was born in a remote part of Iceland. He weighed in at a 40lbs and was an astounding 43" long. Today, the real SUG is all of 7'7" and weighs 655lbs. He continues to base his operations out of a remote location in the moonlike landscape of northern Iceland. We approached SUG to ask if we could create a 12" version of him and tell his story. The only thing he asked for in exchange was a set of the 3 original UNKL Brand SUGs, which we quickly agreed to. For the record, SUG says the figures are an
excellent representation of his likeness.

There are two new figures in this 2nd series: D 56 (Red) Icelandic Surgical Division and E 57 (Black) Icelandic Tactical Division.  The SUG is a really nice figure, one that hasn't really gotten its just due. We hope that Series 2 attracts a new legion of fans.
