Designer Toy Awards Nominations Open

by
 

We're happy to announce that from May 1st until May 15th that the Designer Toy Awards, aka the DTAs, will be accepting open nominations in a variety of categories from both professionals and fans alike!
Having learned from the previous two years of the DTAs, we've continued to refine and restructure the nomination, voting, and finalist procedure to help ensure quality winners while still garnering input from the entire community.
First off, we're making the eligibility period for nominees completely year based: if it came out in 2012, then it can be nominated for these 3rd Annual DTAs.
We've also launched the awards with a select list of nominees already entered, but we still need your input. Please nominate anything we missed in any of the categories! And Fan Favorite and Best Collection start with no nominees in them, so it is completely up to you to fill them up!
Speaking of categories, we've continued to refine those as well. Best Toy from a Comic and Best Licensed Product have been merged into one category called Best Media Tie-in, which encompasses any production piece derived from any mass media release — movie, tv show, comic book, novel, whatever. The scope of the Best Self-produced category has been refined and expanded by converting it into Best Resin, which is a nice counterpart to the new Best Vinyl category.
And then there is Toy of the Year, which will no longer have nominees entered directly into it. All the finalists in Toy of the Year will be the highest publicly voted upon nominees within the following categories: Best 1/6th Scale, Best Collaboration, Best Media Tie-In, Best Mini Series, Best Plush, Best Resin, Best Sofubi, Best Vinyl, and Outstanding Production. Basically, if it is a toy and it gets tons of love from the public, then it will be a finalist for Toy of the Year!
So Get Nominating…
Head on over to the Designer Toy Awards website, review the current list of nominees, and please answer our Call For Entries by adding anyone worthy that isn't already included!

Splatterhouse and Ghouls n' Ghosts mini figures

by
There's very little info that I can find on these but they're too awesome not to share.  I really hope to see a full line-up of old school gaming figures. Arthur from Ghouls n' Ghosts and Rick Taylor from Splatterhouse 2.  

The Capcom branding on the back of the figure is a cool touch.

Mezco Toy's unleashing the DC Universe blind boxes

by
DC Universe fans suit up and get ready to grab these new blind boxed superheros!  Mezco's newest line will feature Superman, Batman and all your favorites.  

It should be very interesting to see what the chase figure in this set is.  It's a caped figure and Supes and his Justice Lords alter ego are already revealed.  Bizarro? Shazam?  We'll have to wait until September when the 2-pack blind boxes will be available for $9.99 to find out.
