NYCC 2013 Signing Schedule for Tenacious Collective Booth 208 - New York Comic Con

Booth 208 is a collective booth, meaning we are essentially sharing a large space.

Each of us in this booth has our own designated floor space and table.
What this means, for you as an attendee, is that there might be different events and signings you want to attend at different spots in Booth 208.
Each member of our collective has their own signing schedule.

In order to bring all of that chaos together, I will list the signings below chronologically, and I'll tell you which member of our collective is hosting that artist. It's one giant booth with no walls, so even if you show up at the wrong end, we'll all point you in the right direction!

40% off Kidrobot Major Lazer edition 8-inch vinyl Mascot with code 40pctoff


1984: the Olympic Games are held in LA, President Reagan runs for re-election, the AIDS epidemic runs rampant, and underneath it all, the secret Zombie War rages. One secret soldier is rescued from the fray, his arm gone, but his spirit strong. He is given an experimental lazer prosthetic and hired by the CIA to continue his fight against the forces of evil. He fronts as a dancehall nightclub owner from Trinidad, though in truth, he is a badass Jamaican keeping the world safe from vampires and monsters, while partying hard and tweeting.

Major Lazer Kidrobot is an 8 inch vinyl homage to the renegade soldier turned CIA operative. A collaborative project of the DJ/producers Diplo and Switch, Major Lazer debuted with the album Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do in 2009, followed by Lazers Never Die in 2010. Major Lazer Kidrobot has a uniquely sculpted head and lazer arm to properly capture his eighties commando style and signature prosthetic.

This 8" vinyl figure usually sells for $49.95, but for a limited time only you can snatch one up for only $29.97 at the Tenacious Toys online store by using the code 40pctoff.
