2006 SDCC: Rocket World

P1030431

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.

REVIEW: Broken Heart Robot

P1030278

Background

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!

Packaging

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 Figure

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.
