Animation Inspired!

We had a great time at the NYCC, maybe the best show we have all collectively attended. People were in great spirits and really brought a ton of super positive energy to the table. We will absolutely be there next year to do it all again!

Now that the mayhem has subsided, we are ready to release some new additions online that have been waiting to get loose (Sunday, October 23rd at 9PM EDT)! If the last wave of figures was a tribute to all things Real Type, this new round pays homage to the classic animations that we watched back in our 1980's youth (well in my youth anyway, Marcus was still in diapers). Robotech, GI Joe and Transformers were just a few of the massive influences that got so deep into our creative DNA. I was personally insane over the Zentraedi from Robotech (Macross) and all the additional armor designs that popped up throughout the three parts of the Robotech saga.

Some of the most iconic color schemes of those days came from Transformers, particularly the Decepticons. The Insecticons, Seekers, Predacons and basically every G1 bad guy colorway were glorious and hugely influential. The Autobots were also just as good, giving a super hero vibe to giant robots with their Marvelesque color choices. GI Joe was the perfect blend for me though, mixing Real Type qualities with classic color sensibilities. The Cobra designs were just so damn cool.

This new batch is dedicated to all the creative masters who brought those shows into our young lives. They proved to not only fuel our imaginations, but also to comfort many of us when the whole divorce era swept across the country. Our generation is what happens when Optimus Prime plays the role of your parents while your mom works two jobs.

The drop date will be this Sunday, October 23rd at 9PM EDT. This will mark the last larger release of 2011, with a possible small round of stuff sometime in December. The Big Rig was made in slightly lower numbers as it is on the expensive side to produce. If you guys dig the figure and the response is positive we may try it again next year. Please consider it a fun experiment and be sure to let us know what you guys think, positive and negative. Pics of the new stuff over the next few days leading up to the launch!
