Well, I'll be damned: Super7 is all growns up

Spotted in the Super7 newsletter today:

Super7 teams up with Hasbro to bring the most popular Japanese giant robots of all time to the Super Shogun format!  OPTIMUS PRIME and other Autobots and Decepticons will be realized as jumbo-scaled, 24” tall retro-bots complete with rocket punch!   These will be among the largest TRANSFORMERS collectibles ever produced!

As part of this multi-year licensing agreement, Super7 will also produce TRANSFORMERS merchandise in a variety of categories, including Designer Japanese Vinyl Figures, retro-themed Glassware, Designer T-Shirts, and Limited Edition Art Prints!       

Stop by Super7’s booth (#4729) at the San Diego Comic Con for teasers of what is to come in 2013.

This is huge. I'm not sure if Super7 executes big licensed deals like this on the regular, or if this type of major collab is new, but either way it certainly propels Super7 up several notches in terms of mainstream recognition. I'm stoked. This is the type of thing I aim to achieve with Tenacious Toys. Kudos to Super7.

Resin Skulls by Niall "Trutek" Anderson

Recently a few new and dedicated people have begun writing about and participating in the designer toy industry... one of these people is Niall "Tru:tek" Anderson. Hailing from the UK, Tru:tek seems to be into dubstep as well as art toys. You might recognize him as the guy behind Man-E-Toys, which you can follow on Facebook and Twitter.

Well, Niall and I have been in touch and he decided to send me some of his resin skulls- one fancy painted and bejewelled one and of course a Tenacious Blue colorway which he marked as 1/1 on the packaging.

These skulls fit right into my resin skull collection! They're up on top of my computer along with resin skulls from Matt A*, JC Rivera, Kris Dulfer and We Become Monsters

Definitely check out as it's an interesting site that covers a lot of interesting art toys... looks like Niall has a penchant for outside-the-box stuff just like I do.


Punter Bot Snipers in stock, shipping Monday

 The 1:6-scale 3A Punter Bot Snipers, which were a BBICN Exclusive release, arrived today. They will be shipping to customers on Monday. All are currently "taken" but as of today we do have 6 customers who have not yet paid, so there is a distinct possibility that more will open up for sale. If that is the case, I will put those Bot Snipers up for sale on our 3A page in about a week.
