Evilos Custom Amiibo to sell on Toys R Us website


Evilos has been pumping out great custom art work for some time now.  And when I saw the work he was doing on Nintendo's Amiibo figures I knew they'd be a hit with collectors.  It seems that someone at Toys R Us feels the same way.  Evilos has announced that his custom Amiibos will soon be available through the TRU website.  This is groundbreaking on so many levels.  To get to see an artist rise in popularity, and get recognized is fantastic in of itself.  But to have that artists work distributed on a large corporate chain like TRU really means something to the community as a whole. Hopefully this opens up more to the world of custom toys and collecting.

All of us here at Tenacious Toys want to congratulate Chistopher Avalos for such an achievement and well earned recognition of his work.

Now I fully expect you to make Evilos a DLC character in Super Smash Brothers, Nintendo.

About Nerviswr3k
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.
