Even though Upper Deck is most well known for their trading card division, their vinyl toys have taken off. The All-Star Vinyl figures that were on display included Tom Brady in a retro Patriots jersey as well as LeBron James…

SDCC 2007: Gargamel (Booth #4837)

When regular folks hear the name Gargamel, they probably think of that creepy old guy from the Smurfs. When vinyl toy collectors hear the name Gargamel, they think of the Japanese toy company that produces some of the best looking…

SDCC 2007: Jermaine Rogers (Booth #4935)

Jermaine Rogers is well-known for his rock poster artwork, but over the years, he has transformed some of his characters into vinyl form. The Lifesize Squires (at 2 feet long and 2 feet tall) are sure to creep out any…

SDCC 2007: Huckleberry Toys (Booth #4151)

Raymond and Toy2R took over one half of the Huckleberry Toys booth to show off their custom Bart Simpson Qee collection…as well as some new and old products. The work these artists did is even more awe inspiring in person….

Everyone’s favorite monster wrestling league – Kaiju Big Battel – released their first vinyl figure – Sky Deviler. The piece is produced in collaboration with Marmit and is limited to 100 pieces. If you’ve never seen these guys in person…

SDCC 2007: McFarlane Toys (Booth #2601)

McFarlane Toys had a number of their stylized Spawn figures on display. Personally, I like the feel of these figures rather than the more detailed Spawn series. They’re nice and simple, and give off more of a comic-like aura. Also,…

SDCC 2007: Mezco Toys (Booth #4145)

For all of the children of the 80’s, the Mezco booth conjured up memories of Cyndi Lauper singing Goonies ‘R’ Good Enough. Probably because of The Goonies toys. The company ws showing off it’s action figure line from the 1985…

SDCC 2007: Rocket World (Booth #4733)

Patrick Ma was showing off his customizing skills in the Rocket World booth. He was creating these custom Titus (from the Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo) using the new Titus sculpt. So what’s the difference? The muzzle is a little smaller and…

SDCC 2007: Neth Creature (Booth #5039)

It appears that J from Neth Creatures is going to add some new sculpts to his line…sorta. These animals inspired creatures will have antlers and ears and will definitely be a piece you want to keep away from the kids….

SDCC 2007: Max Toy Co (Booth #4837)

Max Toy Company was one of the first places I rushed to on Preview Night. Between the Eyezon figure and the products Mark Nagata’s company was carrying for Cronic…it was tough deciding what to drop money on. Why not all…
