Tenacious Toys at Toy Street April 22nd in NYC

OsirisOrion custom mini figures make their debut at Toy Street
Next week on Friday April 22nd, we will be exhibiting at a toy-centric NYC event called Toy Street. Toy Street is put on by the Cookies N Cream crew at 268 Mulberry Street in NYC. This will be a one-day event running from noon to 8pm. Admission is FREE so definitely plan on coming through. We've put together a few neat projects which we'll be kicking off at our Toy Street booth which we are sharing with Lou Pimentel, a talented local artist and friend of ours.

The first major project we'll be unveiling is a collab with OsirisOrion which we've had in the works for a while: I sent Osiris four dozen of Buff Monster's mini Ice Cream figures. This awesome series of customs will feature the amazing and beautiful paint which we've come to expect from Osiris. These figures have 4 basic shapes, and each shape has it's own Orisis-style colorway. From left to right (above) are: Sewer Sludge, Oil Slick, Molten Lava, Rainbow Cookie. Each custom will be bagged and tagged and will sell for $25. Osiris will be on hand to meet, greet and sign. We ran these by Buff Monster and although this project is in no way associated with him, he saw the images and gave his stamp of approval.
Tenacious Exclusive Pearl White Skekiltor
The next collaboration we will have available at Toy Street is the above Pearl White Skekiltor 4.5-inch resin figure by Halfbad Toyz. The Tenacious Exclusive Pearl White Skekiltors were made in a limited run of 20 pieces, and the price is $18 each. Halfbad Toyz will have their own table at Toy Street where you'll be able to pick up a lot more of their toys and merch.
Scott Tolleson's Otis and Otto set
We've had a request from OG from the Big Kev's Geek Stuff show to stock the Scott Tolleson 2-figure set called Otis and Otto, so we will be bringing a few of these to Toy Street in the Blue/Red colorway (pictured above) as well as the Orange/Purple colorway. Otis and Otto are $25 per set. These are a worthy companion to the Scott Tolleson Uncle Argh Mini Qee that we are currently accepting preorders for here
If you haven't listened to the Big Kev's Geek Stuff show, you can check out past episodes here. We're currently running a 3A Large Martin giveaway on their show (to air tomorrow night) so click here to go to their site and learn how to enter to win!
Danny Chan's "The Dragon": Show Special
 Our show special for Toy Street will be the 9-inch vinyl "The Dragon" figure in the OG colorway seen above. Designed by Danny Chan for the clothing label REMIX, this figure will be priced at $12 each just for the duration of Toy Street. That's about one third of the normal price.

In addition to all of the above fun stuff, we will also be hosting NEMO, who's coming in with a micro-series of four 4-inch hand-carved wooden tiki figures.
Will post images and pricing once those are available.

We are also hoping to replenish our stock of Zombie Chuck figures in time for Toy Street. Our Tenacious Exclusive blue Zombie Chucks sold out so fast that we thought we'd get some more. 
And we'll be giving out stickers and selling a variety of designer art toys all afternoon, so please do stop by!
