FREE GIVEAWAY Contest: Toy Fair Exclusive Maisto 1949 Mercury

Toy Fair is always a good time, and the fun doesn't end when I leave the convention center... at night you get to see which of my fellow retailers have pillaged the vendors' freebies and are flipping them on eBay! Case in point: for the 2013 Toy Fair, the fine folks at Maisto made these exclusive 1:64 scale 1949 Mercurys in their awesome Muscle Machines line. This is basically a repaint of the purple 1949 Mercury that Maisto released in 2012.

If you check eBay, you can see these being flipped- successfully- for up to $60 each! That's a whole lot to pay for a 1:64-scale vehicle that should retail for $5.

At Tenacious Toys, we do not take advantage of the collectors like that. Instead, we're GIVING THESE AWAY. I'm keeping one (hey, I collect too), but I've set aside 3 to give away, for free, to members of our shops email list.

VENENOR & 1SHOT TOYS Naspoth Phanost Glyos Resin

Fellow Glyos collectors and customizers take note, today at 12 EST - VENENOR & 1SHOT TOYS will be dropping their Battle Damaged Naspoth Phanost head! This Glyos compatible hunk of resin is modeled after the transformation of the traveler Phanost in one of the latest Glyos comic books by Ralph Niese.

The cost is $10 and it will be available in translucent neon pink and a solid plum purple that will closely match the official Onell Designs colors from that same wave.

Here are some shots of the original kitbash from VENENOR, which shows off the details and how the finished product can be painted to allow for a light piping effect.

Available at the 1SHOT TOYS STORE - 2/16 @ 12:00 EST

Color Breakdown:
  • 5 x Candied (Previously seen in Both Buddha Fetts and Bantha Buddies)
  • 5 x Splattered (Previously seen in Both Buddha Fetts and Bantha Buddies)

L'Amour Supreme x Suckadelic Black Hulk Release

L'Amour Supreme and Sucklord

 After the last embers of Toy Fair 2013 were stamped out, I hopped on the F train to Chinatown to check out the L'amour Supreme Black Hulk release at the Suckadelic pop up store and eat some cheap, awesome Chinese in the basement of the East Broadway Mall.

Limited is the name of the game and even though I was in line before the stars of the evening made their grand entrance (with some classy ass security) everything from the evening's release was already SOLD OUT.  I did manage to grab some pictures so for everyone who couldn't make it, here's what you missed.

"Mundam Wing" by Josh Mayhem

Another 7 inch Munny for the Art Without Borders Show, this one includes 47 points of articulation including the head and both arms. Enjoy!

Passive / Aggressive Mini Munny custom by Bryan Collins the Color Chemist

 "Passive Aggressive"
Acrylic and resin on vinyl 4" Mini-Munny

Bryan writes:
This good-vs-evil custom mini-Munny is a commissioned piece I'm calling "Passive Aggressive". This is one of only three custom pieces I've done any type of sculpting on so far, but I plan on integrating more sculpting on current and future customs.

Ian Ziobrowski's finished commissions: Bowser and Franky Fett

Bowser from Super Mario 3, on a 3-inch Dunny platform
Bubba Fett? 3 inch Dunny.

This is called Franky- I guess that's the name of the guy Ian did this one for!

Sad Mecha Tiger by JPK

This one has the WOW!
