Toybot Studios has some Pushead SDCC Event News!


Kirkland Jue of Toybot Studios has the dish on the exclusive releases and special guest for the Pushead event at the Toy Tokyo booth #5336 during SDCC. He was even lucky enough to snap some of these photos himself. Lucky guy.. The big event will take place on Thursday, July 12th and Pushead has asked along TAKESHIT (Fink Shit) to join in on the fun. Kirkland notes that Pushead was able to have TAKESHIT get his Fink Shit figure out of retirement (after 15 years). This is the very figure that inspired the development of Secret Base. Kirkland also notes that the version being released will be a never released “scar” version that has never seen the light of day!


Pushead has also worked his magic and un-retired the retired SkullBrain figure, to be released as an exclusive ‘Andy’ Edition. This edition features a dark gray & Glow marbled vinyl Grim Skullbrain with a clear gray outer head and skullmantis arms. It also features Scary Andy’s logo on the back.


And that ain’t all! Available will be the cross figure between Pushead and Usugrow, the Rebel Captain. This run features a dark purple & Glow marble vinyl, with a skullpirate’s Eye Tampo on the back.

There will be tons more surprises and customs available at the event. The only way to see is by waiting in line on Thursday, July 12th at Toy Tokyo at 4:20PM. [Via Toybot Studios]
