Diamond Select Toys has announced the Bruce Lee D-Formz PVC Figure Assortment. These PVC figures pack a 3-inch tall punch. Inspired by the life and looks of Bruce Lee, this blind-boxed series includes five different designs, plus two rare, one-per-case variants. Designed and sculpted by BigShot ToyWorks. Look for them to be released this summer and to run $7.99 each.
Dark Horse Direct has announced the Game of Thrones: Ice Dragon & The Night King Premier Statue. Made from polyresin and sculpted by Bigshot Toyworks, this premier statue measures in at 24" tall. More details and pre-order information will be revealed soon. But we do know it will retail for $599.99 and ship around Q2 of 2019.
Bigshot Toyworks has announced another collaboration they're currently working on, this time with the folks at Bungie. The first figure in the line is the Cayde-6 GWP (pictured above) that is available with the preorder of Destiny 2. That game will be released in September 2017.
Also, they've announced the preorder of the Lord Saladin with Wolfpack deluxe gift set, which is available to pre-order from Think Geek and GameStop for $19.99. The 4-inch tall figure is slated to begin shipping in August of 2017.
Bigshot Toyworks' latest project is in conjunction with the folks at WeLoveFine. They created Gomez, a character from the popular cross-platform game Fez (available on Playstation, XBOX, Steam, etc) that turns 5 years old. The Gomez figure is produced by WeLoveFine in vinyl and measures in at 4.25 inches tall. The figure is currently available for pre-order from WeLoveFine for $25.00. The estimated ship date is between October 9th 2017 and October 11th 2017.
Bigshot Toyworks will be heading to New York Comic Con to showcase some new and upcoming projects. They'll be in Booth 309 in "The Block."
Bigshot Toyworks has announced a new collaboration with artist Jason Freeny. They're bringing Jason’s unique anatomical dissection to one of our in-house intellectual properties - The Gnomeboys. Ragnar “The Metal Gnome” Hellstrummer is a 6-inch tall hand-crafted holystone figure.
Ragnar is all Metal...all day long...even while doing laundry. He is dark and moody and is ready to set the stage on fire with his black metal guitar licks. We just hope his guts don’t spill out before the end of his solo….
Ragnar is limited to a run of 200 pieces in this standard colorway. Pre-orders are available via at the Bigshot Toyshop, running $65.00 each.
David Horvath + Sun-Min Kim (Uglydolls) and Klim Kozinevich (Bigshot Toyworks) are holding out hope that their Dream Big Friends project reaches their Kickstarter funding goal. The project would see their Yuna doll and Kamata cat produced as an alternate collectible to all of the fashion dolls currently available. However, there's that looming Kickstarter end date (Sunday, January 3rd 2016 at 2PM ET) and the fact that they need to bring in over $100,000 ($69,000 pledged of $175,000 goal) in about 4 days.
Closing that gap is a fairly monumental task. And it's pretty surprising, given all of the positive press surrounding Yuna, that more funds have not been raised. Having backed a number of Kickstarter projects, I can only imagine that not offering up a myriad of "Add-Ons" might have hurt Dream Big Friends. Add-Ons often boost up that average pledge amount. But there's still hope. And one can still dream...big...
A trio of toy industry vets - Klim Kozinevich (Bigshot Toyworks) and David Horvath + Sun Min (Uglydolls) - have teamed up for a new project they are launching through Kickstarter - Dream BIG Friends. Yuna (the first Asian-American girl to be the center of a doll line) is the very first doll in an all new line called Dream BIG Friends. She's a 10-inch tall, fully articulated doll with real fabric clothing (including a Giant Robot shirt) and accessories - including her cat Kamata.
After watching their own kids play, David Horvath and Sun Min began a discussion with Klim Kozinevich and wondered; what if there was more? The worlds of princesses and pixies, fashion models and super heroes are all fantastic, but something was missing. The trio set out to create a unique personality in a small plastic body, focusing on aspirational, inspirational and imaginative play. Something that would encourage kids around the world to embrace what makes them who and what they are, inside and out. With all that in mind, Yuna was born!
There are currently several different funding levels, but it rounds out to about a $40.00 pledge for the Yuna figure. That includes a 10" tall Yuna doll dressed in Giant Robot t-shirt, skirt, sneakers and red jacket, with a shoulder bag and Kamata cat figure. Not bad price-wise, in my opinion. That's why I went in for two of them.
This project will only be funded if at least $175,000 is pledged by Sunday, January 3rd 2016 at 2PM EST.
Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.
Bigshot Toyworks will be attending New York Comic Con 2015 as they'll be setting up at Booth #208 in The Block. In addition to checking out a showcase of their current projects, upcoming releases, and some surprise prototypes, you'll be able to pick up a NYCC Exclusive. The 4-inch tall Lil Maddie - Red Hellfire Edition will be available to purchase for $30.00.
Bigshot Toyworks has taken to Kickstarter in an attempt to get their The Four Horsies of the 'Pocalypse line produced. Those horses include Calamity (Pestilence), Raven (Famine), Clash (War), and Ghost (Death).
This next-generation of doombringers are on a mission to destroy the Earth, but to do so, they'll have to beat the likes of Queen Chroma and her rainbow sprite army! Too bad they can’t crack teamwork to save their lives. Led by Maddie (an older sister type with an affinity for destruction, funded in our last Kickstarter), these would-be Champions of Chaos are desperate to show their parents they've got what it takes to inherit the legacy. Cake and ice cream for eternity? Not if these freaky fillies have anything to say about it!
Backing reward include getting The Four Horsies of the 'Pocalypse figures in three different color ways (OG, Clear, or GID), Four Horsies apparel, stickers, accessories, etc. Picking up a set of the four figures starts at the $100.00 funding level.
This project will only be funded if at least $60,000 is pledged by Wednesday, February 18th 2015 at 8:30 PM EST.
