Tenacious Toys & Matt A* Announce Angry Artist Reviews Episode #1: Funko Hikari Gold Skeletor Unboxing Video

Tenacious Toys is nonplussed at our own announcement of our new unboxing and review video serious by none other than the angriest artist in the toy scene: Matt "Angry Artist" Anderson!

Our buddy Matt destroys packaging, talks shit and points out the flaws in various toys that we stock!

He was doing this shit on his own crappy social media channels, and it was hilarious, but no one ever saw it because, frankly, most of you stopped paying attention to Matt about 3 years ago.

But, he's always been a friend, and he has thus far refused to take off that filthy monkey onesie, so we thought we'd stick the maniac on camera and blast his mean mug out to the world.

When I suggested this idea to him, I knew from the get-go that I'd be sending Matt stuff that he doesn't like. He doesn't like much, honestly, so like 95% of what we sell would be something Matt would rather shit on. Funko is definitely a company that Matt does not enjoy. So we sent him for his first review one of the 750 "24K Gold" color variants of the Masters of the Universe Skeletor Hikari figures made by.... Funko!

Video #1 is below:

 Matt will be reviewing toys on our YouTube Channel weekly, so stay tuned for next week when he reviews a Jason Freeny x Mighty Jaxx item! We promise to occasionally send Matt something he likes, although we are not sure what that might be.

Tell your mom.

Marcos Lorenzo announces "All Pain & No Gain" as a ToyCon UK 2017 Exclusive

Marcos Lorenzo is happy to share with you his new release for ToyCon UK 2017, called “All Pain & No Gain”. This is a commissioned series of 10 units, with 8 units available to the public exclusively at the ToyCon UK 2017. 

This piece intended to reflect a balance between strength and weakness, or how it’s important not to be a winner but to keep fighting. Maybe a homage of those people who continue getting up one time and another despite having fallen. It’s an inner fight and an inner win. And this is translated to the body pose, where the balance of the figurine was one of the more difficult points to solve because of the S shape of the body and the aligned legs and arms.

This pieces is a hand crafted resin Toy with faux leather, fabric and acrylics.
Each piece is 1/6 scale standing 250mm (9.9 inches) tall.
Series of 10 units: 2 commissioned pieces and 8 more open to public.

Hit the jump for more photos and make sure to check it out if you are going to ToyCon UK this year.
