Everyone's favorite designer flash drives were on display at SDCC. Not only were there exclusive mimobots, but mimoco also had a number of upcoming artist series on display. These included the Devilmobotz - designed by Devilrobots - and are now available through the mimoco website.
Creatus Maximus debuted their Smart Bombs line at San Diego Comic Con. Their first 2 duo packs took on the likenesses of Batman and Robin and R2-D2 and C-3PO. Check out the drawings we have of the upcoming characters. There are also plans for a holiday themed duo pack.
Rocket World upsized this year. They have a bigger booth and a number of new products on display (and for sale). The SDCC exclusive bears - Sun Tzu and Midori - were going fast on preview night. I've seen the new Yeti and Sasquatch figures first hand, and I must say they are flocking great! If you're a fan of the IWG line...you'll notice that these 2 figures are a little larger than their cohorts. In addition to the vinyl figures, Patrick also had his Rocket World Diner Print on sale for $5 (a must-have for IWG fans) and prototypes of his creature hoodies.
Neth Creatures has 3 SDCC exclusive figures available at their Comic Con booth. The brown one is flocked and if you pick up the white one...ask J to do some custom work on it. They also had a 3 different plush characters on display. They are limited to runs of 100 and are made in conjunction with a town in Peru. Pretty cool!
Glen and Android 8 had a number of very cool prototypes on display at Comic Con. They also had several new prints, t-shirts, Glen's handmade androids and Brendan Monroe's exclusive Sour on sale at their booth. Upcoming projects include: BoyCatBird from record label - Ghostly International; Chaz and Daz from Motomichi Nakamura; new work from Daniel Johnston.
If you stopped by the Uglydoll booth tonight, you definitely saw the garbage cans full of Secret Mission Uglydolls. Yes...they are your favorite Ugly characters in as all black SDCC exlusive plush. Also on display were new 2" tall Uglydolls. All visitors have a chance to win 1 of 5 special 2" Uglys by filling out a post card and listening to see if your name is called at 4 pm each day.

Tonight is the opening of San Diego Comic Con....sort of. It's Preview Night, which means a bunch of crazy people trying to grab the exclusives they want. Me? I'll be there to cover the events. Check in for our coverage all this week!
Designed by Craig Anthony Perkins, and produced by Genshi:Toy, the Broken Heart Robot is a unique toy – for reasons we will get into. Since we always love a good background story…how about this one.
On his home planet of Xerbix 319, the Broken Heart Robot was one of the rare robots built without a purpose. Sadden by this, he fled Xerbix 319 and traveled the galaxy to seek out his purpose.
Along the way, the Broken Heart Robot met many interesting characters on various planets, moons and asteroids, and eventually landed on a small planet known as Earth. Though he has yet to find his purpose, he may just find a few new friends to help him with his quest!
The window-front box the BHR comes packaged in is designed to look like his spaceship. It has the story behind the character written on the back.
The Broken Heart Robot is a 6” rotocast vinyl figure. He has 5 points of articulation. Each figure has a sad looking face and a broken heart on its chest.
There are currently 4 versions of this figure available – regular, blank (white for customizing), glow-in-the-dark, and the SDCC exclusive clear. The clear plastic figure is actually squishy, which is a nice bonus.
All I can say is...YES! Fawn Gehweiler's candy girls - Edie, Pippi and Sailor Girl. Necessaries Toy Foundation has posted this photo on their blog...with the message - "soon". We know that these will be on display at the DKE Toys booth at SDCC. The question we don't know the answer to is - when will they go on sale? Either way, take in these things of beauty.
