KID ROBOTKid Robot has been one of the companies leading the way in designer toys. Well known for it's Munny and Dunny line of figures, Kid Robot brought to Toy Fair several new lines of toys to preview. The Dunny Post Apocalypse 3" series was on display, an aftermath envisioning of the original Apocalypse series by artist Huck Gee, will be released on February 28. The figures will be blind packaged at retail for around $9.95 each.
In addition to it's new series of Dunny's, Kid Robot has acquired a license for South Park's upcoming the Stick of Truth video game. They will be producing 5 figures based on in-game character content, the first to be revealed was Eric Cartman. The figures will be 6 inch and will coincide with the release of the video game itself.
THE LOYAL SUBJECTSAnother interesting company exhibiting at Toy Fair was The Loyal Subjects from Los Angeles, Califonia. With licenses for G. I. Joe and Transformers, The Loyal Subjects introduced 2 lines of 3 inch tall figures for each brand. All figures have moveable arms and swivel heads, and each one comes with a weapon. Diehard fans and collectors will notice that the figures will be sold blindly in packaging that mimics the original G.I. Joe and Transofrmers style guides.
In addition to it's 3 inch figurine lines, The Loyal Subjects also had G.I. Joe and Transformers skateboard decks on display. However, what truly caught my eye was the collection of Designer t-shirts. I was really keen on the high end art style on the Transformer shirts. We were told that the t-shirts are currently on sale through the company's website at www.theloyalsubjects.com.
