SDCC 2009: Supermodified Studios


Supermodified Studios had their newly designed MOD:zero and MOD:two wooden robots. Actually made from recycled tables, these are a little different from the ABS plastic constructed MOD:one line. Which is your favorite? The smaller MOD:zero or the large, complex MOD:two robots?

SDCC 2009: ToyQube


The ToyQube booth included a number of SDCC Exclusives: Mini Sharky (Keith Poon), White Moko (Muttpop), Bone Ghost Agency (Sam Fout) and Brooklyn Headz (Lou Pimentel). But our favorite might be KaNO's limited edition Boba-DEF vinyl.

SDCC 2009: Kidrobot


If you are a fan of long lines and crazed collectors, then you probably visited the Kidrobot booth on several occasions. There was the above pictured Wood Labbit (Amanda Visell and Kozik), two Holy Roller FatCaps (DEPH) and Shane Jessup's Fortune Dunny and Luck Dunny. Not so surprisingly, all of them sold out...and were some of the hits of SDCC '09.

SDCC 2009: Applehead Factory


The Applehead Factory San Diego Comic Con booth had both their Teddy Scares plushies as well Tofu the Vegan Zombie on display. But their SDCC Exclusive was the Messenger of Mayhem bag set.

SDCC 2009: Huckleberry Toys


Huckleberry Toys had a huge display hyping the release of several Con Exclusive Toffee dolls. The cute - yet slightly creepy - little ladies are available in three Summer Con Exclusive versions: Jessica, Hellboy Fan, and Witchiepoo (H.R. Pufnstuf). And if you didn't make it out to the show, you still have a chance to pick them up via the Huckleberry site.

SDCC 2009: Dark Horse


I'm actually multitasking...watching My Name Is Bruce and writing this post. So it's somewhat ironic that I'm covering the Dark Horse booth (they released the film) and their Bruce Campbell 1:6 scale figure (to be released this October). Who's not looking forward to this?

But their most popular available toys had to be the 2" tall Domo Qee figures. Everyone loves Domo.

The STRANGEco San Diego Comic Con booth had five special edition - SDCC Exclusive - Tokidoki characters (Skeletrino & Skeletrina, Bruttino & Carina, Captain Coco). Julie West was also at the show for a signing. Our favorite was the collection of Mark Nagata's (Max Toy Co.) kaiju figures including the Neo-Eyezon, SDCC Exclusive Drazoran and a handful of one-of-a-kind customs.

SDCC 2009: Shocker Toys


Shocker Toys introduced us to their Mallows line of customizable (and licensed) figures. In total, they had the Phantom, Dr. Rockso, the SDCC Collector Version, and Black and White blank Mallows. And something I'm looking forward to - The Tick Indie Spotlight Figure - was on display for collectors and fans to ogle over.
