NYCC 2008: Dead Zebra

If you looked hard enough at NYCC, you would have found Andrew Bell far away from the vinyl hustle and bustle.  He had a number of new prints, publications and shirts available.  But what we're really looking forward to is his upcoming figure - The Giver.

NYCC 2008: ToyQube

The display at the ToyQube booth included a number of their original pieces: Sharky, Kanser, Kaniza, DCTO.  I must say that I'm liking the Billy Bananas mini figures that they had on display.  I really like the retro look...and only slightly light the crotch grabbing the figure is exhibiting.

NYCC 2008: Organic Hobby

The Organic Hobby booth at NY Comic Con offered collectors the glimpse at a number of anime/manga figures as well as some vinyl.  The Secret Base mini figures obviously would appeal to designer toy collectors.

On display at the Diamond Comic Distributors - Previews booth were a number of their exclusives as well as products that the company distributes.  The most recognizable pieces were from Toy2R.  They included Joe Ledbetter's Smash, as well as Bart and Homer Simpson Qee line.  We also got a glimpse of the upcoming Kaiju Qee lineup.

The Dark Horse booth had a colorful display of 8" tall flocked Domo vinyl figures.  Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow, Brown White, etc.  All of them showing those pearly whites.  In addition to these vinyl pieces, Dark Horse had a number of MINDstyle products (who they distribute) on display.

Android 8 was displaying an interesting line of art toys called the Midigang (from Glen Lieberman).  While there aren't many details out there now, we'll get them to you as information is released.

Also being shown off was the Fairy Labor Union piece from designer Matthew Waldman and the My Beating Heart plush from Yury Gitman.

NYCC 2008: Upper Deck

Img_4207

While there was a lot of action around the Upper Deck booth, mainly from all of the people playing Magic: The Gathering, we got our first peek at the upcoming MVP line.  The New York Giants figure was designed by Joe Grady, aka Rebelwookiee. I like the design...I don't like the Giants.

NYCC 2008: Mezco Toyz

Img_4211

The most impressive piece at the Mezco Toyz booth had to be their NYCC Exclusive Notorious B.I.G. vinyl figure.  (We'll actually be doing a review of it later in the week)  In addition to Biggie, Mezco had a number of new Hellboy II products, including an 18" tall rotocast Hellboy.

NYCC 2008: Onell Design

Img_4205

Onell Design set up shop at the Rocket North booth in the small press area of NY Comic Con.  It was sort of a last minute thing, so if you didn't make it to their booth...you missed out.  They launched two new Glyos figures - Pulse Version Pheyden (clear red and purple) and Empire Version Exellis (black and white).

In addition to the already released figures and colorways, there were some other designs on display including Buildman Ranic, Gobon and several others.  We can't wait to see them released!

NYCC: Bigshot Toyworks and Moon Toad Productions

Img_4026

While, obviously, the most impressive piece at the Bigshot Toyworks booth was Ashley Wood's ginormous robot named Bertie...it's what was pictured below that really caught my eye.

Img_4031

This trio of Visionaire figures are done by the amazing comic book artist R. Crumb.  It's not often that you see the well-known artist lending his art to toys.  Sorta like never.

Img_4037

Sam Fout and Moon Toad Productions also shared the booth.  While they only had the artwork on display, I'm looking forward to seeing the Johnny Ramone Army line as well as Sam's Yeti plush.
