Nugglife 24-Hour Delivery Promo Video - Release at NYCC 2016 Booth 309

In the city that never sleeps, we expect nothing less than 24-hour delivery of everything.

Working all night, all week, all month, all YEAR long, the Nugglife team has designed, developed and produced an entirely new line of Nugglife apparel which will debut at New York Comic Con Booth 309 on October 6th.

You will be fighting me personally for one of those blue caps pictured in this video. I am not kidding. Roll up early and cop your Nugglife gear directly from the source before everyone descends upon this booth and buys them out. This will happen.


Bonus, filmed in my neighborhood where the entrepreneurial spirit runs deep...

Big Kev's Geek Stuff NYCC Exclusives


The witching hour approaches and NYCC is about 1 week away.  This year Geek Stuff joins The Block and will be located at Booth 401.  We have 4 exclusives this year and I couldn't be more excited to work with the artists we've chosen for 2016.



1) We partnered with Kyle Kirwan this year as part of his scavenger hunt for 1 of his  7 Cavus Bloom Exclusives.  Geek Stuff will have Arsine, The GID Red Cavus Bloom which stands 5.5" tall and will sell for $30.  These are limited to 10 pieces total.



2) We are working with Julio Arroyo of Victorian Ink Tattoo to bring you a limited edition print featuring Gravity Falls (as well as some other easter eggs hidden within).  These 11x14 prints will be available for $20 during the run of the show and Julio will at the Booth on Saturday hanging out and signing prints if you want to meet the man in person



3) We are working with Craig Snodgrass to debut a pre-release of one of his upcoming prints "Space is Calling" for the con.  These 8"x10" pre-release prints will be limited to run of 10  and will be on sale for $10.



4) And last but definitely not least what would a NYCC be without an exclusive from Rich Page of UME Toys.  This year Rich kept with the fall theme he loves so much to bring to life PB Pumpkin.  This 3" figure is limited to 10 pieces and will .be available for $40

Resin is King Series 3 Full Reveal - Release at NYCC Booth 309

As we prep this series for the big debut, we thought we'd FINALLY get you the full-on reveal of the 10 pieces in this blind box series!

Many of the artists cast their pieces in different colors, and finished with different paint jobs, so the pieces you see above may actually turn up in different color variants! Jacob JAMS and Magitarius, for example, each submitted 10 unique one of a kind pieces. NEMO's dogs are all similar but uniquely painted. Matt (Angry Artist) made pieces in 2 main colors (bronze and white) with a one-off clear chase figure with an LED inside! Scott (FOD) has a main colorway (pictured) and 2 other chase colors. Penny (Taylored Curiosities) has a main color (pictured) and a silver chase. Dead Hand Toys has 3 color variants, with the one pictured the most common and the other 2 as chases.

To recap this series: it contains 100 blind boxes. All pieces fit into 3" tall boxes. We have 10 artists who each submitted 10 pieces. Price of a blind box is $30. Each BB comes with a resin figure, an insert card so you can figure out what piece you got, and a Resin Is King sticker. Randomly placed will be a number of Golden Tickets which will get you FREE stuff like resin figures from various artists in the series, discounts in our shops, etc.

The big release of Resin Is King Series 3 will be at the opening of NYCC on October 6 at the Javits Center in NYC. Come to Booth 309 in the center of the Block to say hello and pick up your BBs. We will have a few opened BBs on hand so customers can buy a BB and swap for one of the opened pieces we have in our case. Some of the artists in the series will be on hand or nearby.

We are EXTREMELY proud of this superb series. All the artists brought their A games and designed and cast gorgeous miniature sculptures. We are proud to support and associate with all the resin artists involved! Looking forward to seeing everyone once again at NYCC.

Adopt a SnodBOT kickstarter by Craig Snodgrass


The first SnodBOT - Duppy - was illustrated and designed by Craig Snodgrass. Craig Snodgrass is an artist who draws uncannily human robots. Snodgrass' robot illustrations have a distinct style and expression that make a connection to people from all walks of life.



Snodgrass has been drawing these robots (SnodBOTS) for years, but now it is time to take these characters beyond the page and into the 3rd dimension. 



Your contributions will primarily go towards getting the toy manufactured. If they exceed their initial goal some funds may go towards increasing the production run. Funding will also go towards rewards, marketing costs, packaging and shipping costs.



Ideally the toys will be ready for shipment by December 2016 or January 2017. Having limited quantities of these will make them highly collectable among toy and art collectors alike. Think of these as three dimensional limited edition prints.



Join the Kickstarter to secure your SnotBOT and watch the video here.
