I briefly met with Geoff Beckett, President of Shocker Toys at this years San Diego Comic-Con.
Geoff showed me his upcoming Indie Spotlight line of action figures. All of the figures shown were painted prototypes, 6 inches in height and have full articulation. Some of the highlights of the Indie Spotlight line-up are: SCUD, the Phantom, Dick Tracy, Shadowhawk, Katchoo and my personal favorite, The Maxx figure.
As you can see from the photo’s, Shocker toys have come a long way from last years SDCC07 promotional resin Metalocalypse figures. If the final products look anything like the prototypes I saw, the fans will definitely be in for a treat.
From this small sampling, it really looks as though Shocker Toys is going to be a true competitor in this niche market. I look forward to receiving the first wave of figures and personally reviewing them for the fans.
