Striking similarities...

Above: "London Calling" was a custom Vinylmation created by Evilos for our April 2012 Candy Coated Custom Show in NYC.

Below: The Union Jack 5" Mini Qee Bear by Toy2R- a production toy slated to arrive soon. I'm not sayin nuthin... just that the timing is odd on this. 1 year is usually the max roll-out time from concept to reality, at least for platform toys. It's been about 11 months since our show.

Featured Product of the Day - March 26, 2013

Todays featured product is another Tenacious Toys exclusive, the Uncle Argh Noir Mini Qee by Scott Tolleson. This is the second colorway of this piece and availble only at the Tenacious Toys online store.  The vinyl piece stands 5 inches tall, is limited to only 500 pieces and was produced by Toy2R.

Scott Tolleson called Benny of Tenacious Toys one day and asked if he wanted to have the Argh Noir colorway as a Tenacious Toys exclusive. Of course, Benny did, but he didn't have the money to fund the run of 500 Mini Qees. So Benny turned to Kickstarter, the crowd-funding platform, and put together his first Kickstarter project. After a nail-biting 2 months, the Argh Noir Kickstarter was fully funded and the money was sent to Toy2R to begin production! We are now selling the Årgh Noirs as we would any other product on our website since all Argh Noir Mini Qee rewards have been shipped to the backers of the project.

Available now for only $28 at
