Custom Qees by JCRivera for NYCC

 JCRivera will be showing up at our NYCC booth (#876) with a gang of customs. Here are a few sneak peeks: above is his Evil Ape custom, with bulldog accessory made from a Kidrobot Labbit figure! Suitably swagged out for his trip to NYC!

Above is Ricky the Passive-Aggressive Bunee, a two-for-one custom Qee which can be displayed either way depending on how your mood is swinging...

And finally, JCRivera will be bringing in some of his own hand-cast resin figures to give out to those of you who make it to his signing at noon on Saturday October 15th. See you there!

Matt Anderson Mecha Hello Kitty customs

Mike "NEMO" Mendez featured on our NYCC postcard

This year, since we are teaming up with Toy2R on a NYCC booth (#876), we wanted to go heavy on the presentation of the Toy2R product line. We therefore decided to stick a Qee on our NYCC marketing materials. We chose the 5" Mini Qee Toyer as our featured product, a sweet $15 DIY platform toy offered by Toy2R. Our side of the postcard shows a Mini Qee Toyer customized by local hero/artist Mike Mendez, aka NEMO. The reverse side, the Toy2R side, shows the Mini Qee platfrom in all its beautiful, clean, white glory, ready to be customized.

You can meet NEMO, along with Rob Ingellis and Bob Conge, at a group signing at 3PM on Saturday October 15th. These 3 artists are actively collaborating on a number of projects, so this is your chance to meet all three at once! Booth 876. Be there.

DesignerToysUK reviews Art Hustle, SuckPax and My Dad's Record Collection

Check out what happens when we send some art cards to the UK to be reviewed by Dan Byrne, without giving him ANY background whatsoever about the Sidekick Lab product line! He's a little confused by some of the more esoteric cards, but that's to be expected. Great video. Much respect to DesignerToysUK. Check out their new Facebook page too!
