Show and Tell: Brian's NYCC swag

Jan 27 // Brian Szabelski
Oh my, what's this? It's the Moon Jumper Wet Suit Maria figure from ESC-Toy! She's the same as the regular Wet Suit Maria, but with a spacesuit-themed color to her. Well, I like space, so I had to have her! The only bad thing about Maria is ... well, she doesn't quite stand up on her own without wobbling or falling over. Still, nothing I can't fix when I finally put her up for display! I love how with just changing the color palette on Wet Suit Maria, Erick has been able to make her outfit look more like a spacesuit than a frog suit. You can still see the frog design, but it's not quite as obvious at first. It's the I Think You're Soopa plush collab with Steff Bomb! Based on Erick's earlier Soopa Coin-Up Bros. figure, this one is a little arcade machine with tiny little legs, just looking for a good place to sit and someone to play its game. The craftsmanship on the plush is actually quite superb; sure, the felt feet do kind of easily get twisted about being thin, but it sits without a problem, and there aren't any visible seams or loose threads hanging off it. Pinned to the body was a little Steff Bomb tag, which can easily be removed and put back on without damaging the plush itself. The back was signed by Steff Bomb and numbered. As you can see, only 15 were made and I have number 8. Joy! Of course, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to add another Foster to my collection from Super7! The little cookie who likes to eat himself is one of my favorite designs, and his oatmeal vanilla edition was at NYCC.  Chocolate Foster is so happy to have a new friend! Finally, there's ... ummmm, excuse me? Sleepy fellow? Could you wake up? Ah well, looks like he's out cold. In any case, this is Koguma Kazuhiro, originally designed by Tokyoplastic and myplasticheart's MPH Labs. This special Kazuhiro edition has a design from kaNO on it that's somewhat samurai-inspired, so I figured picking it up would do me no harm. Plus, I've always kind of liked the bigger Koguma figures and this fits a bit better on my shelf. If you'd still like to check him out, he's available at myplasticheart for US$17.99! That wraps up my NYCC haul for this year. Not a whole lot, but it's stuff I'm all satisfied with. There's actually one more thing on the way that's late in getting here (an Amanda Conner sketch), but I figure this ought to keep me happy for a while. ... Well, until C2E2 and San Diego Comic Con.
