NYCC 2012: Tenacious Toys


Original works and custom creations mingle

Tenacious Toys' booth at New York Comic Con was definitely one for toy collectors that fancy their figures with a touch more hands-on artistry. I believe all of the toys there were either hand-made or created by a smaller group. There was a lot to see, and thanks to Brian and Andres, we have have pictures to share!

Starting off with the custom figures, as you will notice from the header, Carson Catlin had several cut-out Qees on display. For the mecha-loving crowd, there were Josh Mayhem's Gunnys, Dunny figures customized with pieces from actual Gundam kits. Love it! The owl-looking Dunny customs are from the Night Terror series by Matt Anderson, done in collaboration with Alarment, Jeff Beck, Haus of Boz, Dcay574, Mike Die, Alister Dippner, Chris.O.Saur, Del Vanzen, Playful Gorilla, Rusted Halo, Scott Kinnebrew, Don P, Bryan Luss, JDBrockin, Reet Neet (R3), Rsin, Miss Zukie, Necro Monkey, John Walsh, Dave Webb, AW177, Orlow, Shawn Wiggs, Tasha Zimich. There was also a resin sculpture from this series at the booth. 

Tenacious Toys didn't skimp on original offerings, either. ViseOne's Tube Monsters were available for purchase at NYCC. Brian noted that "they were smaller than I thought they'd be but still with a lot of charming detail." It sounds like there might be more of these little fellows in the future, as well. For con-goers who might want to create their own custom toys, Bugs and Plush had a showing of some of their customizable products (check out Kristina's WonderCon coverage for an example of they work). Bad Applez Inc. had some freaky looking monster apple figures that sort of remind me of the poison apple in Disney's Snow White. 

Other works on display came from artists such as Mr. Monk, Evilos, AW177, Blazon Brikhaus, Rampage Toys, Jason Freeny, and JC Rivera, Furry Feline Creatives, Scott Tolleson among others. Check out the gallery to see some of these wonderfully creative toys!
