Toy Tokyo NYCC 2015 Exclusives Line-up Press Release

Its that time of year again, New York Comic Con, and Toy Tokyo has an exciting line-up of exclusives laid out for our fans at booth 101, October 8th through to the 11th at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.
Top of the list...this is a big one...two Godzilla Funko Pop! Toy Tokyo Exclusives. Two versions, the 1954 Black and Gray Godzilla, and a Glow In the Dark Ghost version. Each will be $30.

Godzilla Pop! Vinyls...

But, that ain’t it! On top of the Godzilla Pop! Vinyls (which are a super-sized 6 inch figure) and other exclusive Toy Tokyo Funko products, Toy Tokyo is proudly sponsoring 3 of the original Godzilla costume actors at NYCC 2015 to sign autographs. Haruo Nakajima is among the three suit actors, the original 1954 Godzilla. It will be truly an amazing event and honor for us at Toy Tokyo, as well as the fans.

Godzilla Actor Signings...

Also on hand signing autographs will be Kenpachiro Satsuma, who donned the Godzilla costume first in 1984, all the way through to 1995.

And wrapping up the Godzilla suit-actor timeline, Tsutomu Kitagawa will be the third actor present for the signings. Kitagawa first portrayed to coveted role of Godzilla in 1998, all the way through to 2003...probably when CG started taking over.

Autographs by the actors will be available at discount pricing with the purchase of the Toy Tokyo Godzilla Pop! Vinyl exclusives throughout the show. The exclusives are of the original 1954 Godzilla (which according to many experts, the design has “nailed it!”).

If a fan purchases a single Godzilla Pop! and wants it signed by Nakajima, the cost of the signature will be $15 as opposed to $25.
With the purchase of both Godzilla Toy Tokyo Exclusives, a single signature on both will cost only $25, half off of the regular price of $50 for the signing of two pieces.

With a purchase of one Godzilla Toy Tokyo Exclusive, the autographs of all three actors, the cost will be $50 as opposed to $75. A $25 savings on the autographs.

And lastly, the two piece set of the Toy Tokyo Godzilla Exclusives being signed by all three actors will cost only $60 as opposed to $75.

All three of the actors will also be present to sign any Godzilla memorabilia for the price of $25 for each autograph...that could be posters, photos, other toys...whatever the fan chooses to bring.

Millennium Godzilla...

And in other Godzilla news, Toy Tokyo will also be presenting a very limited Marmit Millennium Godzilla Exclusive produced by Medicom Toy Japan. This piece has been produced in honor of Toy Tokyo’s 15 year anniversary!

Ron English Signing...

On Thursday, October 8 Master Popagandist Ron English will be signing three amazing exclusives! One of the pieces is a very recognizable video game star with the distinct Ron English twist (Mario Grin), and the Mushroom Grin. Along with a trio of Star Skulls.
The signing will take place between 2pm and 3pm at the Toy Tokyo booth 101.

Pop! Asia…

Toy Tokyo will also be proudly presenting a selection of very cool Pop! Asia pieces. All available, of course, in very limited numbers.

The other Toy Tokyo Funko Exclusives for NYCC 2015 are as follows:

  • Topping the list is Freddy Funko in celebration of Toy Tokyo’s 15 year anniversary

  • Then there is an old school Battlestar Galactica Lt. Starbuck in a white uniform

  • Partnered with Starbuck is Captain Apollo, also in a Toy Tokyo Exclusive white uniform

  • C-3P0 Hikari, in the Toy Tokyo Exclusive Dirty Penny edition

  • And finally, a Dorbz Ridez Batmobile with Batman

Pricing for the exclusives is currently not available for the balance Toy Tokyo Exclusives, aside from the two Godzilla Pop! Vinyl pieces.

The Toy Tokyo team is very excited about this year’s New York Comic Con, and look forward to seeing all of our loyal fans that have supported us over the years, as well as all of the new supporters we have gained in more recent years.

Crummy Gummy Show at New York Comic Con 2015

Crummy Gummy returns to New York Comic Con only this time with some friends! Crummy Gummy’s Four Faced Gummy Bear Show will be taking place at the PIQ Booth #614 located in the Block. He hand selected 8 artists to customize his newest figure and the line up includes: Jon Paul Kaiser, Sugar Fueled, SoKo Cat, Steve Parker, The Drif, Topheroy, MannyX and Obscure. He will also be signing at the booth on Friday at 4pm.

DabsMyla's "Trouble Trouble (Mono)" for NYCC!

The duo of DabsMyla recently released their first designer toy, Trouble Trouble, in partnership with Munky King. Featuring 7.5" tall dynamite stick Mr. Freddy Powerful and his best buddy, the lit match Little Sparky, this vinyl figure set harkens back to the Golden Age of American animation, so what would be more appropriate than a Monotone Edition?

Limited to an edition of 100 pieces, this New York Comic Con exclusive version will be available solely from Clutter Magazine's NYCC booth #603 for $80 apiece!

Born into this world as a human clone baby, Nerviswr3k went thru life enjoying and admiring the left side of life, colors, taste, emotions and creativity. At the age of 12, Nerviswr3k managed to disconnect himself from the machine known as the American dream and began the long journey to creative freedom. That long journey takes us to now.......focusing on odd creatures and odd fellows, creating what in his mind is a master race that pulls the strings on modern society, controlling the media, governments, agriculture and monetary institutes. This world is a dystopian rat lab where we wait to find out who wins this rat race called life. The end.

Tenacious Toys NYCC Exclusive Baby Fatts Stone Idol Edition by Big C

Add caption
Breaking News!  During an excavation in the former Mesopotamia, archaeologists found what has been dubbed as the “holy grail” of resin art figures.  Archaeologists claim this is proof that the World's First Dragon has been worshipped since the birth of human civilization.  Baby Fatts, the first production piece by Big C, will debut with a stone color/texture. The Stone Idol edition of Baby Fatts will be a 2015 convention exclusive, limited to 10 pieces.  4 will be available at NYCC at the Tenacious Toys booth #208, and 6 will be available at DesignerCon (DCon) at the Hitsquad booth (booth #'s not yet assigned).  Baby Fatts is roughly 3.5” high, 3” wide, 3” thick, and will sell for $60 each. Make sure you put this “toy of the year” at the top of your convention shopping list.  With only 10 total pieces available, they won’t last long. 

About Big C:
Big C is a visual artist, from the San Francisco Bay Area, who produces work as a painter, sculptor and illustrator.  His work has been displayed all over the world, including the de Young fine arts museum, and San Diego Comic Con.  He is influenced by his life’s struggles and triumphs.  Big C loves to design toys, paint canvases and create original sculptures, but he also likes to create art out of many non-traditional objects that he sees canvases and armatures.  He has many huge projects in the works.  His work can be seen online at and on instagram at @big_c_art. As always, he would like to thank you for supporting the arts.

Superpowers: binge watching Netflix, while sculpting and painting.
