C2E2 2014: Frombie

Frombie's figures are ostensibly friendly zombies, but I'm not seeing it. I guess their comics do fit the bill. However there's still a friendly quality to these figures that I can get behind. Their wares at C2E2 covered a wi...

New York Comic Con attendees had the treat of several exclusive items from Frombie. Starting with the Star Wars-related toys, there's S2B2, turning the lovable flying squirrel SB into a droid, and Darth Zora, in which the Frombie heroine turns to the Dark Side. The three Robo Zora Morphers, Moriko, Houo, and Hoshiko, were also available for purchase. And, oh goodness, the pins! Many of the pins available for purchase were exclusive to conventions with a few, like Mummy Kami and Vampire SB, being released at NYCC. 

Most of Frombie's goodies were available to take home that day but a few were available for pre-order. Gold Little Zora, Waterfall Kami, and Sith2B2 were all on display and could be pre-ordered at the con. If you missed out on attending, you can still pre-order online at the Frombie store

For fans of Mechy Pang (and you can count me among them), there was a larger version of the original figure. Dubbed "Mechy Pang Grande," this 1/1 figure is signed by the entire Frombie team! You will also notice that in the display with Mechy Pang Grande are several as-yet-unnamed colorways for the original-sized Mechy Pang, a placard even mentions that one (or maybe more) glows in the dark. 

Check out the gallery to see pictures of Frombie's booth, shot by our very own Andres Cerrato!

NYCC exclusives round-up: Designer toys
by Natalie Kipper

New York Comic Con is almost upon us and I am sure those planning on attending already have their heads swimming with thoughts of lines, swag, and those ever-elusive exclusives. And, while we can't help you out with the first two, we can make sifting through that long list of exclusives a little easier.

After the break, you will find the NYCC-exclusive designer toys, divided into figures and plushes, with booth numbers, prices, and edition sizes provided. If we previously covered the toy on Tomopop, we threw in that link as well. Hopefully, this will help with planning and make your con experience easier. Keep a look-out for the companion piece to this post detailing the comics toys! Oh, and happy shopping!

Frombies reveals more NYCC exclusives photo
Frombies reveals more NYCC exclusives
by Kristina Pino

Frombies recently shared a flyer on Twitter revealing three Robo Zora figures which will debut at NYCC on October 11th together with the previously-announced S2B2. The Robo Zora Morphers are called Moriko, Houou, and Hoshiko, and each is going to be priced at US$125.

Each is limited to just 12 pieces, and their weapons could be combined to make a neato spaceship. They'll be sold at a first come, first served basis, so make sure your butt is at Booth #609 by 10 AM.

Side note: if you pre-ordered Mechy Pang, you have fast pass access to buying S2B2 at NYCC!

Frombie makes S2B2 for NYCC as limited exclusive photo
Frombie makes S2B2 for NYCC as limited exclusive
by Vanessa Cubillo

When will people get tired of Star Wars? The answer is never! That's why Frombie's NYCC exclusive is a mashup of their character SB and the Star Wars character, R2D2. For the event this year they went all out creating a figure that was much bigger than any figure they've made before.

S2B2 stands at nine inches tall and five inches wide. This figure will be available on the opening day of NYCC in very limited quantities. So if you find this figure cute and love the Star Wars theme, make Frombie's booth your first stop.

You'll also be able to pre-order their black version, Sith2B2, at NYCC.

ESC-Toy brings some new releases for the holidays
by Brian Szabelski

Erick Scarecrow and ESC-Toy have just dropped a bunch of new releases in the ESC-Toy Shop, and it's a nice line-up for those of you who are fans of designer toys, the urban look or just Erick's own work. They're also just in time for the holidays if you want to get a gift for someone else ... or yourself. Don't worry, we won't tell.

New in the shop are:

  • Flying Crow Crow Bear by ESC-Toy and Moriya (Six pieces, US$300), the latest 6.5-inch resin figure to come out of ESC-Toy's studio; anyone who buys this figure also gets two prints with their purchase
  • A new Monster Kolor x ESC colorway of Dizign known as Gaizer Dizign (12 pieces, US$130) that comes with an 8.5-by-11 Giclee print (Erick notes that the print has extremely graphic elements which some collectors might find offensive)
  • The next ESC/Frombie collab colorway, which is the blue Tunic Kami x Sama (20 pieces; cast in resin; US$30), which comes with a matching Frombie pin while supplies last
  • The last of the Pretty Boi Silver Bastards (US$250); this was a limited run of five released, but four have already sold
  • Two new Giclee 11-by-17 prints from Erick: Night Lantern (limited to 30 pieces; US$55) and Old Skool Kaiju in the Lab (open run; US$35) 

Check out the gallery for photos of all the pieces and the links above for more details. I'm digging the ESC x Frombie piece, but the prints the Crow Crow Bear comes with are pretty awesome, too.

Tomopop's Big Bad DesignerCon 2012 Roundup (Part 1)
by Brian Szabelski

DesignerCon 2012 is this weekend, and the show just keeps getting bigger and bigger every year. That includes the exclusives list, which has grown to monstrous size, it seems. With so much coming to DesignerCon this year, we thought there might be a slightly easier way to show everything off than just a barrage of posts before the show, especially since the news just kept on coming as we were writing about the releases already announced! That's why we've put together one big round-up of everything DesignerCon; not only to help us keep our sanity, but to help you guys and gals find out about everything we know that will be at the show, all in one convenient place. Or at least two, probably; there's so much stuff, this has become a multi-part feature!

Remember: DesignerCon is this Saturday at the Pasadena Convention Center (300 E. Green St.) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific. The price of admission is US$5 in advance and US$7 at the door. Hit the jump to see a taste of what's going to be at the show!
