Tenacious Toys Marshall Blind Box Custom Series

We are proud to announce a little project that we've been working on for many months now: a blind-box custom series based on the Marshall platform. The Marshall figures were originally designed by 64Colors and produced by Rotofugi, so full respect and props to them for making this excellent sculpt.
We reached out to a few of our close friends for our first custom series, and while we are still in the late stages of getting everything ready, we are aiming to launch the series soon after SDCC ends. The price for each custom will be $50 even. I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the quality of the customs that we've gotten back. Most DEFINITELY worth quite a bit more than the $50 price we decided upon when we were planning this project, but we wanted to keep these customs accessible to the vast majority of collectors, so $50 it is.
For now all we're showing you is the graphic which will be applied to outside of the boxes, but rest assured: teasers will follow in the upcoming weeks! If you keep your eyes peeled on the blogs and pages of the following artists, you may just catch a glimpse of some of their custom Marshalls!

Artist Roster:
Mike "NEMO" Mendez
