Tenacious Toys offering up a trio of resin releases
by Brian Szabelski

Tenacious Toys have three new resin series on their website, all done in collaboration with We Are Not Toys as blind-boxed resin collectible sets. The series, all hand-painted by the artists who created them, are:

  • Shadoe Delgado's Shadowlings, a collection of 10 designs, all 3-inch figures, that remind me of something you'd expect to see in a dark fantasy realm;
  • Nerviswr3k's Nibirian Drones, a series of 3-inch figures with 12 different designs (plus chases) that are pretty similar to a lot of Nervis' past, alien-like monsters;
  • Tony Devito's Best Buds, a set of 3-inch figures based on Tony's Best Bud character, with 15 different designs available (plus chases)

All three are available either as blind-boxed individual figures (Shadowlings - US$35; Nibirian Drones - US$35; Best Buds - US$29.99) or full sets of all the figures (Shadowlings - US$300; Nibirian Drones - US$350; Best Buds - US$420), exclusively at Tenacious Toys.

LEGO rolls out next round of collectible minifigures photo

The LEGO collectible minifigure blind packs are showing no signs of slowing down as they enter series 12. In case you haven't heard there's a LEGO movie coming in February 2014 and this series consists of 16 characters from the movie. Unlike most movie figures I doubt if the movie were to bomb it would effect the figure sales in the slightest. Such is the popularity of LEGO. 

The series has a very colorful group of characters and a number of them are sure to be very popular among collectors. Here's what's in the lineup due out in January:

  • William Shakespeare
  • Gail the Construction Worker
  • Panda Guy
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Taco Tuesday Guy
  • Larry the Barista
  • President Business
  • Calamity Drone
  • Marsha Queen of the Mermaids
  • Wild West Wyldstyle
  • Scribbe-Face Bad Cop
  • Velma Staplebot
  • Hard Hat Emmet
  • “Where are my Pants?” Guy
  • Mrs. Scratchen-Post
  • Wiley Fusebot

I kinda want a Panda Guy...

Hey all! It's that time again for my Loot Crate unboxings! Yes, I said 'unboxings' - plural. I'm a dingbat and forgot to record a video for my September crate, and now I also have October's! Though you might notice it's now November. Yeah, have you ever had one of those moments where you thought you did something days ago, then you find out you never did? Yeah... That's kinda what happened here. So please enjoy both September's Animate Crate, as well as October's Survive Crate!
