A Fist Full of Dominoes Show by Paul Kaiju SDCC 2014

Toybot Studios - 43 min 42 sec ago
Paul Kaiju A Fist Full of Dominos Show SDCC 2014

Todd and Paul above.  One of the main reasons I went to Con this year was for the Paul Kaiju show. It is one of the #1 priorities of the entire convention. This year it was at Gunnzo which is a toy store in Old Town which provided a nice excuse to get out of downtown.  It was great. It really felt like a house party complete with a backyard where everyone could hang out. Totally classy affair. Paul catered the event so there was tacos with homemade tortillas. Like she made them right in front of you fresh. So yummy.

Thanks to Joe who got called early and hooked me up. In return when I got called, I picked him up the Alien Ree which was his first choice.  Karma!

The man himself.  Class act.

Paul really outdid himself this year. He painted over a hundred toys. Enough so that everyone who attended got something and probably even got two toys by the end of the evening. Such a great event. Todd, Mel and Paul did a great job.  Thanks to Chika at Gunnzo for hosting the event at her store too..!

Super 7 at SDCC 2014

Toybot Studios - 1 hour 29 min ago
Super 7 SDCC 2014

I probably stood in front of the Super 7 the most during Comic-Con but partially because it was sooooo busy and partially cause I see these guys all the time, I neglected to take more shots of the booth and staff including Brian, Alex and Chad.  I suck.

But the big story was that the ReAction figures are a qualified hit. Fans were going nuts and waiting in some long lines for the Alien playset as well as the Alien eggs with the variants you see here. Well done Super 7.

Seqart Continues Its Interview With James Roberts On More Than Meets The Eye

Tformers - 30 July, 2014 - 20:51
WHITTAKER: With the actual characters themselves, particularly through dialogue, you take established qualities and amplify them to an almost comical effect. Ultra Magnus for example.ROBERTS: Well, you’ve got my number there. With some characters – my detractors would say most – I quite deliberately turn things up to 11. It’s almost a sitcom-style of writing. You’ve got limited space to work in (22 pages/22 minutes), so find the essence of a character, exaggerate it, and find ways to regularly rei

Iron Factory's Not-Sixgun And Not-Slammer New Images of Legends-Scale Helper Figures For Metroplex

Tformers - 30 July, 2014 - 20:41
Along with Not-Especially-Ultra Magnus, Iron Factory has released images of colored samples of their figures based on Sixgun and Slammer at the Legends scale, which will complete the assortment of partner toys for Fall of Cybertron Metroplex along with that toy's included Scamper. I only count four total guns on Sixgun, making it truly NOT-Sixgun, but its ability to separate in to two large guns or become a tank gives it a somewhat versatile play pattern. Keep reading to see the photos.

Iron Factory Not-Ultra Magnus New Photos of Legends Scale Figure

Tformers - 30 July, 2014 - 20:32
Iron Factory has thrown itself fully in to creating additional figures scaled to Generations Legends based on other classic characters. Newly revealed is one figure based on Ultra Magnus that transforms in to a full truck with trailer, though at this size it's more of an assault vehicle than car carrier. It's displayed in scale relative to several other figures, but should be around the same height as current Generations Legends for interactivity with Metroplex. Keep reading to see the images!

"Submarine Sandwich" by PES on Kickstarter

TOYSREVIL'S I LIKE TOYS - 30 July, 2014 - 20:27
Let me preface this with a distinct disclaimer that I am highly biased towards the work of PES. Long since a previous lifetime (some netizens might remember it as "Multiply"), while I was neck-deep in the media industry - when "toys" begun to take a hold of my consciousness - PES' animations held my mind at bay. The sheer concepts revolving around pop / geek culture, heightened with the mundane

Thank You!!!

Glyos Transmission Blog - 30 July, 2014 - 19:18
Thank you for a truly excellent 7th anniversary release! We continue to survive thanks 100% to your dedication and generosity, and our family could not be more thankful for being allowed to last 7 years in the crazy world that is toy making. 

When I sat down to take the first photos of the production Super Crayboth, an extremely deep feeling of gratitude came over me, one that caused me to pause right before the first click of my ancient camera went off. After working on the little bugger for literally years, and wondering many times whether or not I would ever finish the blasted sculpt, things finally fell into place and delivered the Big Cray just in time for Sunday's special wave. Maybe my little shadow continues to look out for us, now from another place, beyond the things we know. It kind of feels that way to me.

Looking at the next few months, we have some planned waves that should be fun to explore together. Early September is slated to welcome the return of an old team, first released back in late 2010. October will feature a very small release, centered around the Armorvors, as has been the tradition in these parts for the last couple years. We will not be attending NYCC this year, so we can focus on some projects that we currently have in the pipeline. I'll be posting some thoughts regarding the current state of conventions as a whole in the coming weeks, and I would really like to get some feedback on how you each feel about this particular subject. The choice not to attend this year was not an easy one.

As we move into our 8th year, the stakes are higher, the competition is more intense, and the general flow of funds is tighter than ever before. Nothing is a guarantee in any venture, but inspiration and dedication absolutely make a difference in the equation. We love what we do here more each day, and understand completely that it could all fade away with only a few hard turns of circumstance. My instincts tell me that some major bumps are coming to the independent toy companies, and not everyone will emerge from these shifts intact. Moving into this era of change, I'm cautious yet excited, because I still feel that creative fire burning inside.

I hope you feel it too.

Thank you for everything.
