Designer Toy Awards Trading Cards

This year's Designer Toy Awards spotlighted some truly amazing artists and the people and companies that support them.  One of the best of among was the Tenacious Toys toy store (but I'm a little bias).  Now Designer Toy Awards has partnered with Sidekick Lab to bring fans of designer toys a set of collector cards featuring the finalists from this years awards.  The set includes 177 base cards, 27 variants, special signature cards, and Golden Ticket Redemption cards.  Those Golden Tickets can win you everything from original art to one-off Designer Toys, print, hand painted customs, and even a complete trading card subset pack!
Each pack will cost $5 apiece and contain 8 random cards, though the true collector will definitely want one of the only 100 made Factory Sets, which include all the following in a special foil-stamped box for only $85:

All 177 base cards in the series;
all 27 variant cards in the series;
one random signature card;
one Golden Ticket Redemption Card; and
we'll even hand you one of the promo only Hello Kitty x KISS cards!

Packs and boxes are available throughout the 2013 New York Comic Con at Clutter Magazine's Booth #504 and SideKick Lab's Booth #203.

These will also be available at the 3rd Annual Designer Toy Awards ceremony itself, taking place on the night of Saturday, October 12th at Hudson Terrace NYC (621 West 46th Street, New York, NY 10036), with doors opening at 8PM. Tickets to attend the ceremony are currently on sale here.
