In a not so shocking bit of news, KR Purchase, LLC (a wholly owned subsidiary of National Entertainment Collectibles Association) and Kidrobot have announced the signing of a definitive agreement under which KR Purchase will acquire Kidrobot. The globally recognized creator of designer vinyl toys joins the growing NECA family of specialty entertainment companies, and will proceed as an artist-run company under the creative direction of Frank Kozik, renowned graphic artist and creator of the Labbit urban vinyl toy line.
“It’s rare to have the opportunity to join forces with an artist-centric company like this,” said Joel Weinshanker, COO of NECA. “We are doubly thrilled to be able to allow it to grow organically and flourish on its own, which is what we’re certain it will do with the involvement of Frank Kozik as Creative Director.”
“When Joel and NECA approached us about joining forces, about his intention to support us and allow Kidrobot to move forward with autonomy, I knew we had found the right partner," said Bob Africa, President of Kidrobot. “The timing of Frank agreeing to join us could not have been better and we are incredibly excited about Kidrobot’s future.”
Kidrobot will remain headquartered in their Boulder offices, while they are supported by NECA’s (located in Hillside, NJ) vast network of suppliers, creatives and internal team members.

Matthew Dennall - a startup toy maker based in Sheffield UK - has opened his UncannyCritters online store...featuring his first available creation - The Puck. Puck is the first in a series of toys that will be based on old British folk-tales. "Pucks are forest Goblins, who are viewed as the most dim witted of the tree spirits, often thought by other fairy folks as being no smarter then a young dog."
The nearly 4-inch tall toy will be cast and painted by the artist. He's painted a classic green on the flesh and then an autumn reddish brown for the bark that grows from his skin. The figure features articulation in the forearms and head.
The Puck is now available for preorder, and Matthew will begin shipping out the toys on December 5th 2014. They're available to order now for $49.00 each.
