We spent some time at NY Toy Fair yesterday (posts about that to follow) and had the chance to hang out with the guys from Unbox Industries, which was awesome because I haven't seen these guys for a few years! I have to admit that Unbox had slipped underneath my radar a little bit, I'm not sure if that's because I moved to the USA and didn't get to hang out with these guys anymore, or if they are just terrible at PR. Either way its a shame I wasn't more aware of the awesome things they have coming out.
They previewed a lot of work at the London Toy Fair - Some of which we blogged about here, and some of which we are going to follow up with now.
- The Obnoxious P-NUT #B.A.S.T.A.R.D. by Triclops . These look awesome, particularly in these unpainted colorways, classic M.U.S.C.L.E pink, lagoon blue & 'Clops purple. Pictures shown is of an 8" version of their original mini figure series. Will let you know when we have more info on release dates etc
Back in 2005 Dan was instrumental in putting together a show in London celebrating characters from 2000 AD - Zarjaz!. We covered this exhibition back in issue 7, seems like a lifetime ago...
Anyway, for that show Tado made a plush Judge Death, which was particularly awesome...
and I believe was gifted to Nichole 'toy baroness' East.
Dan has been trying to get this plush produced for a few years now, so I'm glad to see its getting closer and closer.

Also take from the same show is this Pete Fowler Nemesis design, shown here from the T-Shirt design.
The figure looks very snazzy in its chromed out version. Can't wait to get my hands on this!!

So now we are more up-to-date I promise to keep a weather eye out, and report more good stuff as it comes in!
