Jared Deal and Dream in Plastic shared a New York Comic Con booth in The Cultyard. Jared brought out The Flock - all of those little resin birds. He also released his Timber resin...but I'm a little partial to the Philly member of The Flock.
Carnival Cartoons has released Pierce The Human Pincushion & Nathan The Dog-Faced Boy "Red" Edition. This colorway is a limited edition of 250 pieces.
Pierce and Dogboy are the Carney family mischief makers! Pierce is the quintessential bratty younger brother, and Dogboy is Pierce's pal, a loving pet, and... a fur covered wingman! Pierce relishes his gross-out gig as "The Human Pincushion" in the family sideshow act. (He's got more holes than a boardwalk putt-putt course). When Dogboy isn't doing double duty as the family's household hound, and Pierce's partner in crime, he wows the crowds at Barker's sideshow with his furry face and outrageous animal antics!
Pierce stands approximately 5.5" tall, while Nathan stands in at 4". Unlike the previous Pierce/Nathan colorways (like our still available exclusive...ahem) this set does NOT come with a mini print. Look for these to hit your favorite retailer with a price around $45 for the set. And for wholesale inquiries, contact DKE Toys.
Carnival Cartoons will be releasing a Monkeyhouse Toys Exclusive blue colorway of their Pierce and Nathan vinyl figures. Limited to an edition of 50 sets, Pierce sports a monkey on his chest and Nathan is rockin' a monkey on his back. Each set will come complete w/ a signed miniprint.
Monkeyhouse Toys will also be hosting a gallery exhibition "Freaks, Geeks, And Sword Swallowers" to help celebrate the release. The opening reception and release take place on Saturday, June 27th from 5PM until 9PM and the shw runs until July 12th.

At NYCC '09, Jared Deal of Carnival Cartoons had his new Pierce and Dogboy vinyl figures available for collectors to purchase. You could also get a peek at some of the Argonaut Resin designs and you were able to purchase the gold NYCC Exclusives El Diablo, Vladimir and CellPhonesKill resins.
kaNO was also on hand with two special resin MoneyGrip colorways, the Bodega figures (from BICPlastics), and the extremely cool limited edition black Hi-DEF colorway that's being produced by ToyQube.
All eyes will be on them at this years con, so they have to be sure they look their best. Matty No Times of Three Kings freshened up some ink on Buzz, while Pierce wandered around & checked out the latest assortment of gauge jewelry at the counter. Nathan, not getting any work done, decided to check out the assortment of cool art books & offer moral support to his big brother Buzz (who can be a bit of a crybaby at times) Jared Deal happened to be there with his camera & decided to have a little impromptu photoshoot w/ the boys.
