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

Natural Pop's Forest Friend Fox 9.5" Plush on Kickstarter (Due May 2018)

by
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/753119682/forest-friend-fox-plush
Natural Pop, a small studio run by Anne Marie Chua Lee, is running a Kickstarter for the production of the "soft and sweet" Forest Friend Fox Plush. They are $25 each, plus shipping. Each plush is about 9.5" tall, over 4" wide, and sport a 3" tail.

The Forest Friend Fox Plush originally started as an illustration on a baby shower invitation, and was turned into a handmade plush. After consistently selling out at conventions, Natural Pop decided to work with a plush manufacturer to keep up with the demand, and launch a Kickstarter Campaign to fund production.

Fuzzy Puppet Reviews XXRAY Bugs Bunny & Tweety Bird Figures by Mighty Jaxx

by

We are super excited to work with the hilarious Fuzzy Puppet on a review video for the Mighty Jaxx XXRAY x Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird figures. Designed by our buddy Jason Freeny (maker of groovy things!), these mini figure collectibles were probably the weirdest items that Fuzzy Puppet ever got his furry little mitts on. He kept calling them "CRAZY" which is pretty much accurate.

Watch the video here:


Check out the Fuzzy Puppet Youtube channel here.
