We haven't heard from one of our favorite toy companies - Strangekiss - in a while. Well, their site is back online, and according to Micheal's latest post, collectors are going to have the opportunity to pick up some ultra-rare pieces.
Items that you thought were long gone and could only be picked up for hefty Ebay prices? You might just find 'em there. While they might be posting these up on Ebay, I'd check out the Strangekiss website to get the latest news.
You probably saw the previously released teaser picture of tyrannoCECILrex...and I'm pretty sure you could have seen a copy of the original artwork. Right? Well...Nathan Hamill has now revealed photos of the tyrannoCECILrex resin figure that will be made available during Comic Con. This small run of 8 pieces (plus a print) will go on sale beginning Friday July 23rd for $80 each. And get to the Strangekiss booth on Saturday for Nathan's signing.
Strangekiss has unveiled several variants of the David Lanham designed Peet character. There is a small chance that some of the product samples and a few pieces for sale might arrive on time for San Diego Comic Con.
Shown above, in order, are the Peet Variants by Bryan Colins and Jon Paul Kaiser. Below, there are two more variant Peets...the first being by artist Sarah Miskelly Lunabee and the Peet Evil Variant from Jon Paul Kaiser...which will thankfully be a PlasticandPlush.com exclusive! All of these will be limited to runs of 100 pieces.
Over the past four years, Strangekiss has always striven to bring diversity to their booth at San Diego Comic Con. From David Lanham's Zog and Bill the Yeti to the jaw-breaking custom work of Leecifer, Reactor88, DrilONE to a "virtual signing" by MAD...Strangekiss has been on the cutting edge
So what about SDCC 2010? Strangekiss will be giving some love back to the artists, and - of course - staying high tech.
