Space Junk Destroyer by Bad Applez

Two of my friends, Mike Mendez and Robert Ingellis, have formed a company called Bad Applez, Inc., and this is one of their first projects: the Space Junk Destroyer! Above flyer for the TK3 show at Rotofugi shows a Space Junk Destroyer painted by Robert (left) and one by Mike (right).

Bad Applez Inc. is a NYC based company specializing in resin toys, vinyl toys and resin garage kits! Owned and operated by Rob Ingellis ( OsiRisORion) and Mike "NeMo" Mendez, Bad Applez Inc. will be producing toys and model kits that appeal to every collector, while keeping true to the DIY ethic of the scene today!

You'll be able to meet Mike and Rob in person at the Tenacious Toys / Toy2R booth at this year's NYCC. They'll be signing, along with Bob Conge of Plaseebo, in a group signing Saturday October 15th at 3PM. Our booth # is 876 in the Cultyard.

How are Japanese soft vinyl toys (sofubi) made? Watch this video!

Jon Malmstedt, owner of Rampage Toys, goes with his friend Velocitron to a mom & pop mini factory in Tokyo to watch the creation of soft vinyl toys. Velocitron explains to Jon some of the process, and you can watch it with your own eyes... Mysteries revealed!

We are all very excited for the release of the Rampage Toys Ugly Unicorn sofubi, which is in production now! Preorders are currently available in the Rampage Toys shop for the red and yellow colorways. If production proceeds without a hitch, Tenacious Toys will also be selling an exclusive blue colorway at booth 876 at the 2011 New York Comic Con in October.
