Toy Pizza will be activating a special Knights of the Slice division Friday (today), August 5th at a time TBD over in the Toy Pizza Shop! Check out the latest Toy Pizza episode for more details here!
Grand Lord of the Knights, Jesse DeStasio, sent over some fun bios to share for the "Real Type" inspired selection of KOTS Wave 2 shown above:
NAME: Medic Knight
NICKNAME: Boyo, Male Knurse Knight
SECRET IDENTITY: Daz Briton
POWERS: Can create force fields around injured comrades for a limited time. The longer it's held for, the more strain it puts on Daz.
WEAKNESSES: Is secretly afraid of guns.
BIO: Daz is the first British Knight of the Slice, appointed
due to his emergency medicine and first aid knowledge. Although part of
the ancillary team, Daz has is no less important, having saved the day
many times over.
NAME: Orange Knight
SECRET IDENTITY: Unknown
POWERS: Not yet discovered
BIO: The Orange Knight is an odd spectre that only appears in
the dreams of Brick. The dreams seem to have started the first time
Brick transformed into his Integer Mode. though it has not yet been
determined if the Orange is a direct result. Most recently, the Orange
Knight has appeared to Brick dressed in a formal tuxedo, in a setting
not unlike a wedding. The significance and meaning of these visions are
still a mystery.
NAME: Combat Type 01 & 02
NICKNAME: The Twins
SECRET IDENTITY: Jer & Josh Pollen
POWERS: Higher than average durability and the ability to
quickly dash in a way that appears to the untrained eye to be
teleportation. The dashes are only capable of being executed for a few
seconds at a time and over distances no greater than a football field.
WEAKNESSES: The twins are hot-headed adrenaline junkies, so
they can very easily dive into battle without taking the time to think
about their actions. They have also been known to get into fistfights
amongst themselves in the middle of a mission.
BIO: Growing up idolizing ancient 80s action movies, the
Pollen brothers joined the army as a way to finance
the independent films they wanted to make. Finding their aversion to
authority put them at constant odds with their commanding officer, the
twins were discharged and started working security for Fred Foods.
During the night shifts they would continue to make their lo-fi films
while no one else was around. Eventually, they were caught trying to
swipe one of the Knights of the Slice uniforms (in order to film the
climax to their story) and ended up in Fred's office. Rather than fire
the twins, Fred took notice of their military backgrounds and made them
official Knights of the Slice. They are currently assigned to
humanitarian missions in foreign conflict zones, where they provide
security for food convoys.
NAME: Death Knight
NICKNAME: None known
SECRET IDENTITY: Unknown
POWERS: Death Knight can become intangible with a mere
thought. His weightless is so great, he can travel great distances with
the slightest gust of wind. He also seems to be able to conjure grey
mists that can obfuscate.
WEAKNESSES: Bright lights, loud noises, highly saturated colors.
BIO: Little is known of the one who calls himself the "Death
Knight", though he appears to have an extreme hatred for the Knights of
the Slice. It's rumored he may have been an ex-employee or a trainee who
failed to make the cut into the order of the KOTS. Several times he has
shown up to trap the Knights or make their missions more treacherous,
although he never engages in a direct fight. While he is currently
classified as a nuisance, the concern is with a little help, Death
Knight could become a formidable threat.
Seeing the Knight mold run in these particular colors pushes the core aesthetic in a different direction, and gives a great "Special Missions" vibe to this new assortment. I've been carrying around the Death Knight since the first sample arrived, marveling at the clear smoke armor's effects against the pure black body. Definitely a great combination!
Jesse D and Onell have also been working behind the scenes on a secret "tangent" project which further blurs the lines between our two plastic worlds. More on that as we crawl into the fall.
Extra large congratulations to the entire Toy Pizza crew for continuing to expand the KOTS universe!
