Tenacious Toys Offers NEW LOWER Ship Rates to UK


As we revamp and streamline good ole Tenacious Toys, we have taken a good hard look at our shipping options and figured out some ways to benefit our customers. So, in addition to the recent announcements we've made about our domestic shipments (more ship options, lower Free Shipping number), we've been able to make some extremely favorable updates to the ship options that we offer to our friends and fans in the United Kingdom.

Here are some examples:

Say you love Kidrobot's 3" Dunnys.

Well, our new ship rates allow you to order up to five 3" Dunnys and keep your shipping cost at just USD$6.95 (£4.88) - see below:

Screenshots from the Tenacious Toys shopping cart- these new rates are LIVE right now!

If you are a big collector of Funko POP figures, we are growing our selection on our site, and UK customers will be able to take advantage of this with our USD$6.95 (£4.88) shipping rate - see below:

Collectors of Kidrobot's 8" Dunnys now see shipping rates of USD$23.95 (£16.83) to ship one of those larger pieces to the UK - that's about $15 less than the USPS standard rates- see below:

Finally, if you are a big collector, we have a NEW Free Shipping promotion that we are test-driving for our UK customers which gives you FREE shipping for any order above USD$200 (£140). For example, if you wanted to pick up the two HUGE Jeremyville Banks recently released by Kidrobot, they'd ship to you in the UK FREE - see below:
We hope this encourages our fans in the UK to start considering Tenacious Toys as an honorary UK toy shop... We know that good toy shops are hard to come by these days, both in Europe and in the US, and we want ALL art toy collectors to continue to have easy access to all the newest items. Feedback welcome, and PLEASE spread this info around! Any questions, please comment or email us.

Love and crumpets from big bad NYC,

- Benny Kline, CEO

The Cement Skullhead Blank by Huck Gee

Opposites are everywhere. Light and dark, Black and white, Tall and Short, Sane and Republican party. Huck Gee released a beautiful crystal clear Skullhead Blank, which of course led to a pitted opposite creation, The Cement Skullhead Blank. Created using (most likely) actual cement(indeterminate ratio), The Cement Skullhead features pits and holes and for all intents and purposes, is the polar opposite of the clear Skullhead. Priced at $150 each, plus shipping, these filthy creations will go on sale April 4th, at 12pm PST. Limited to just 75 pieces, the lead time is around 6-8 weeks for shipping. Who knows, maybe a nicely colored cement custom creation will come calling quickly after collectors clean cut brown boxes open, revealing the splendor that is the Cement Skullhead Blank.

Skullhead Blanks by Huck Gee at ToyConUK 2016

With ToyConUK 2016 right around the corner, artists are making final preparations for the trip across the pond. Huck Gee is making the trip back to his motherland and he is bringing along some colorful Skullhead Blanks as ToyConUK exclusives. Orange, Blue and Pink are the color choices for ToyConUK, with Orange and Pink being made available at the actual convention. The Blue Skullhead Blank will only be available at the Toy Chronicle hosted ToyConUK 2016 After party, thus the blue hue. In addition to the colorful resin to add to dusty shelves, Huck will also be bringing a batch of new Skullhead Punk T-Shirts. Hand Colored prints, watches, banners, stickers and a few customs will also be available at ToyConUK. For those attending the convention, be sure to arrive early as many of the items Huck will be bringing will most likely sell out.

Damaged Goods by Luke Chueh


Inner State Gallery in Detroit Michigan presents "Damaged Goods", an art show by Luke Chueh. From Luke Chueh:
As a working artist, I'm constantly dividing my time between the development of my studio art and the production of various products inspired by that artwork. I'm always searching for ways to re-interpret my studio work and take advantage of collector trends, whether it be limited edition prints, or "art toys".
In case you didn't know, Inner State Gallery is a part of the Detroit based print producer and distributor 1xRUN. For many years, I've had the pleasure of working with 1xRUN, and I've seen them grown and diversify. For my upcoming "Damaged Goods" show, I want to create a show that I could only do with Inner State / 1xRUN. For that, I plan on taking advantage of the tools and technology that they have on site. From silk screen reproduction, to hand embellished prints, to laser cut editions, this show will truly push the boundary of the kind of art work I've created and explore the merging of art and commerce.
Opening on April 22nd, 2016 and running through May 13th, anyone in the Detroit area should make the way out to Inner State Gallery and join them for the opening reception on April 22nd. For those who won't be in attendance but still interested in purchasing any art, be sure to get on Inner State Gallery's preview list.

Lapin Noir - Le Sabre x Huck Gee


Many leagues from Grey Wolf's Creek, over the thundering front where the giant, shambling tin cans clash, lies the Untz occupied burrows of Grass Valley. And it is here, beneath a nondescript bar, behind a secret staircase, and only spoken about in careful whispers, that lies the headquarters of Lapin Noir: the people's resistance. This covert group comprised of saboteurs, informants, news runners and shadow smugglers protect the occupied locals and sow confusion from behind enemy lines.

Of the many heroic members of the resistance, Le Sabre is considered one of the most notorious amongst the enemy. Silent with his blades, he is a stealthy infiltrator and backdoor perpetrator, who is well versed in destroying supplies, stealing classified documents, and wrecking havoc amongst the enemy occupiers. He is considered a giant pain in the ass by many an Untz commander and this notoriety has left his name sitting constantly atop the Untz' bounty list.

In his free time, Le Sabre has a passion for good whiskey, card games and beautiful women.

Le Sabre is now available! He stands 9.5" tall, give or take. Signed and numbered. Set of 10. $850 + S&H. Payment due at time of ordering. The figure will ship in approximately 4-6 weeks. Anyone interested in adding this sword wielding member of the resistance to your collection please email ASAP.
