Sunday, Busy Sunday - Wiseman and The Crane, Deadbeets

As you know, this Sunday is Super Series Sunday at Tenacious Toys!  You didn't know that?  Well this Sunday is Super Series Sunday at Tenacious Toys!!  That means some cool exclusive toys.  This time around it's Kris Dulfer of KiD iNK iNDUSTRY's Wiseman and The Crane blind bagged resin piece.  Cast in a rainbow of translucent and opaque colorways, Wise Man and Crane was molded from a very special statue.
During the traveling related to his tour of duty, my pops found himself briefly in Thailand. While in Thailand he came across a merchant who was selling different wares and curios. Among the objects he selected a metalish figurine of an old man with a crane perched at his feet. An excellent gift, he thought, for my grandmother. He eventually returned home from his tour. My grandmother possessed the figurine till she passed away, upon which my father reacquired it. The figurine was always on my father's dresser as far back as I could remember, and I was always fascinated by it.
 Kris' 3.5" Wiseman and The Crane will available this Sunday, September 15th, at 12pm EST for just $25.

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!  The 15th is always an important day for collectors of the Scott Tolleson x George Gaspar Baby Deadbeets series.  This time around October Toys have two more to add to your collection, Bruiser and Thrilla.  To top it off, a full size Deadbeet will be released on the same day, the Birthday Suit Deadbeet.  This one looks perfect for customizers.  Both will be available at 3PM EST.  $2 each for the Baby Deadbeets and just $60 for the 7.5" Japanese vinyl Deadbeet.

Product of the Day - Dudebox Super Amazing Spectacular Collection blind box

It's the Dudebox Super Amazing Spectacular Collection! It's as good as it sounds! A collection of designs that are all bold and brilliant. These are all limited edition collectible mini figures that come blind boxed. A “blind box” is a type of packaging that hides its contents. It is like a game of lucky dip, which one will you get?

On Scratch, Jonny Wan brings us an alternative colourway and mini version of Crackal*, Andreas Krapf has created an octopus hunter (with his catch), Drunk Park shows us his Bong Jovi and Travis Price has created an x-ray with bit of a special touch (*hint: turn out the lights). Ted has been turned into M.I.L.K. Catbot by Attaboy and Japanese artist Junichi Tsuneoka delivers in his trademark style. The Dude gets the Suki Bamboo treatment with Frosty, Chauskoskis' Big Red Dude is someone you wouldn't want to mess with, The Yok turns his graffiti style in to vinyl, as does The Dude creator Mark Gmehling with Hip Hop Attitude.

Each figure stands approximately 2.5" tall and are produced by Dudebox. You can pick up blind boxes for $9.95 a piece at the Tenacious Toys online store today.
