If you looked hard enough at NYCC, you would have found Andrew Bell far away from the vinyl hustle and bustle.  He had a number of new prints, publications and shirts available.  But what we're really looking forward to is his upcoming figure - The Giver.

Meet The Micronugget

Mn3

This little guy is the first offering in a new series from Suckadelic called the Deluxe Suckpegs.  He's a mash-up some old-school, vintage 70's toys that those who are old enough will remember quite fondly. This is the new style of toys that the Sucklord will be producing (with a higher quality look).  He is limited to 40 pieces and costs $35.00.

The Deluxe Suckpegs come with a cool miniature "environment" for them to sit in. In the case of the Micronugget, he comes with a cool "Moonscape" base for him to explore.

The display at the ToyQube booth included a number of their original pieces: Sharky, Kanser, Kaniza, DCTO.  I must say that I'm liking the Billy Bananas mini figures that they had on display.  I really like the retro look...and only slightly light the crotch grabbing the figure is exhibiting.

If you've been following the progress of Go Hero's 1/6 scale Buck Rogers figure, then you probably know that they've revealed photos of Buck's head sculpt, helmet and outfit design.  While the pants below are blue, they will actually be "camel" on the final product.
