coarse States of Matter – floating towards you January 4

by
trance


Melt yourself away

I dissolved into a dream.
It cured me and it cursed me.
I thought this day would never last, but now it is my life.


This unique vinyl art sculpture comes in the impressive height of 15'' [38 cm] and will be available in two editions. Trance [limited to 345 pieces] finds noop in summer tones above water and subaquatic teals underneath, enjoying a popsicle on a placid day. Cosmos [limited to 234 pieces] is drenched in nightmarish blacks and blues as noop meets nism for the very first time. Both editions capture a different moment in the story of noop finding stillness in a world where change is never-ending.

States of Matter seems to balance impossibly, as if noop is actually floating in his swim ring. A translucent blue water line with smooth ripples separates the world of solids from the world of liquids so that we can witness the same matter enter and depart his body in different states. noop's effortless sense of grace has a soothing effect even as the clam's menacing tongue tastes his foot and the squid's tentacles wrap tighter around him.

Both editions of States of Matter come with noop, his swim ring, the translucent blue water disc casting a magic shadow, and a carnivorous clam lurking beneath. Trance comes with a swim-capped noop, one popsicle and matching gradient bubbles. Cosmos comes with one tentacled nism and an inky liquid cloud. Both editions are securely packed inside a color-printed gift box and embedded in black sponge.

Watch your fears evaporate, and take a deep breath in.

Holy shit SDCC owns the term "comic con" now

by
"a jury in San Diego today decided in favor of Comic-Con International... in its long-running battle with Dan Farr Productions and Bryan Brandenburg, organizers of Salt Lake City Comic Con, over the use of the term "comic con" (or comic convention) as a descriptor for a pop culture fan event.... jury decided that the Comic Con mark is valid and that Salt Lake City used it in a way likely to cause confusion to customers."


"In upholding the trademark, the Court ruling allows SDCC to seek licensing agreements with over 140 events in the US that call themselves comic conventions, or else require those events to rebrand."

 WHAT THE FUCK?

I mean, as a toy retailer who exhibits at such events without selling a single comic book, I can't say that a rebranding of say NYCC would harm my toy business. But I can see this being a HUGE FUCKING ISSUE for comic book-centric events around the country. Some of the smaller events like Five Points Fest do not incorporate the term "comic con" into their names... but still... this is going to be a major annoyance for a whole boatload of events who probably already have their own trademarked names, websites, LLCs, etc that incorporate the term comic con...

Introducing Guardian Saga: Aquanoids 3-inch PVC Action Figure Line by StarLight Attic

by

A little while back we were contacted by Chris, whose Singapore-based company StarLight Attic has just released their first PVC toy line: the Aquanoids.

Chris sent over some samples for us to unbox and check out:


Very cool little figures. I dig the articulation- for 3" figures these have a lot of articulation. I think I count over a dozen points of articulation. The figures have a nautical / sea theme and they are brightly colored, which is a big plus for me. On a personal level, the black and gray toys sort of get lost in the shadows on the toy shelf, so I prefer bright colors.


Chris sent me a Nauticus (the guy with the Cthulhu tendrils) and a Takonoid. Packaging is tight, each comes in a blister tray with a couple accessories and an ID card. The website says that these figures are the "maiden wave of Go!Bud Figurines ~ Battle-ready Buddies that follow you on the Go!" so I guess there may be more lines in a similar layout/platform coming soon.

Also included in my care package was a sweet full color comic book that lays out the backstory:



All in all, a very well-thought-out and well put together toy line release. Looking forward to seeing what StarLight Attic comes up with next! Check their site for these figures, apparently the Nauticus colorway they sent me is almost sold out. These figures run about USD$15 each at the current exchange rate.

These would make great platforms for customizing as well!




Here's the copy provided by Chris:

Guardian Saga: Aquanoids

Introducing a new line of 3” PVC articulated figures by indie toy studio StarLight Attic.
Each figure is intricately sculpted, painted, accessorized with weapons, all ready for
battle.

Guardian Saga: Aquanoids draws its inspirations from various 80s & 90s toy-toon lines,
powered with an aquatic flavor. With an army of characters waiting to be unleashed ~
from crustacean monsters to bio-suits ~ come join us in the saga!

Who says good toys need to be big? We Deliver good experiences in little packages.
Currently available in very limited quantities at www.starlightattic.com.
Choose your Aquanoid, and go set the world alight!
