myplasticheart @ NYCC
It’s safe to say that myplasticheart did work at this years NYCC. They had numerous toy releases with Adfunture, Abe Lincoln Jr., and Circus Posterus, Shawnimals, and of course MPH Labs. They also had some top notch artists sign at their booth, such as Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Lou Pimentel, Brent Nolasco, Abe Lincoln Jr., Shawnimals, Andrew Bell, and Patricio Oliver. They even had enough time to put on a mini custom Gordo show within all this madness. All I have to say is to look at the pics after the jump.
Abe Lincoln Jr. @ NYCC
We caught up with Abe Lincoln Jr. during his Sunday signing at the myplasticheart booth, where he not only sketched for the attendees, but he had a nice layout of goodies. One of them being a photo of his next resin figure release, which we cannot wait to see full photos of.

Mike Leavitt – Art Army Series: Banksy @ NYCC
Mike Leavitt’s on-going Art Army project features his hand-crafted one-of-a-kind action figures of notable artists in the lowbrow and pop surrealist genres. Now he’s bringing his wit and caricature skills to a new limited-edition figure series produced by Jailbreak Collective. The first (of 3) figures, featuring a likeness of infamous street artist Banksy, was shown at NYCC. The figure + included diorama recreates the elusive one’s Gitmo Prisoner prank done at the Big Thunder Mountain rider at Disneyland. Very cool.

King Katch, the latest brawler from Muttpop’s Lucha Libre universe, made an appearance at NYCC in the Vinyl Pulse Spotlight (booth #2577). Fabien’s character has made the jump to 3D through a long development process. Look for the King in the not too distant future.

Close-Up of Vinyl Pulse Spotlight @ NYCC
Here’s a close-up look at the Vinyl Pulse Spotlight @ NYCC (AKA a display case loaded with cool products). If you haven’t dropped by our booth (#2577) yet, there’s still one more chance to check it out on Sunday.
Doktor A – G.N.O.M.E. @ NYCC
Raje chose NYCC as the first release of Doktor A’s G.N.O.M.E. figure. The steam punk miner turned out quite nicely with excellent detail to be found throughout the ‘mechanical' elements including the arms, miner gear and more. The removable helmet is executed quite nicely with just the right fit to cover the drill which has clean, sharp lines. As with Patricio Oliver’s Tenebrae figures, G.N.O.M.E. builds on Raje’s basic vinyl body platform with resin pieces for nearly all the character-specific bits. At $60 G.N.O.M.E. is an excellent value.
Patricio Oliver – Tenebrae @ NYCC
New brand Raje Toys made the trip from the UK for NYCC. For their first showing in the USA, they released two new two projects including Argentinean artist Patricio Oliver’s Tenebrae figures: Argent Paladin and Ruby Paladin. Patricio was on-hand to greet collectors and chat about his new best rider figures.
The figures look nice, have a very solid, weighty feeling and feature riders that separate at the waist so they can be used in riding and standing poses. Part of the solid feeling of these figures comes from the use of resin for the detailed sections of the piece including the torso arms and perhaps also the arms themselves as a compliment for the base vinyl body which it shares with Dr. Brain, Raje’s first toy. Raje’s approach to creating limited-edition toys at affordable prices (the Tenebrae pieces are $60) through the use resin + vinyl is interesting and innovative.
ToyQube @ NYCC
ToyQube put together a pretty awesome display to show off Keith Poons Myth Warriors and the new Baby Sharky. The Teracotta warriors do look as they they pulled them from some sort of ancient Chinese civilization. Also on display at the booth (#2874) were some customs by Keith, which included his custom Berty mk2 figures based on Transformers characters. We also got a good glimpse of the first collaborative project of their new Baby Sharky with MCA Evil Design.
Brent Nolasco Signing @ myplasticheart
We stopped by the myplasticheart booth (#2879) to catch Brent Nolasco doing some sketches for fans. It’s always a pleasure to see him sketch and doodle at events, because you get to see first hand how he works. Be sure to also check out the custom Gordo show mph currently has in display at their booth.
LASH of Mutant Vinyl Hardcore @ NYCC
The doors to the convention just opened up and we found ourselves at the Monster Worship booth (#2682) checking out the highly anticipated Ollie figure by LASH of Mutant Vinyl Hardcore. These guys were huge and pretty damn amazing. The detail and work he put into these really paid off. He also brought some custom Sludge Demons for purchase as well.

Kidrobot has revealed their newest KR figure -- ‘The Deek’ by Jeff Soto. Limited to 150 pcs, his axe-wielding creature will drop @ NYCC on Saturday from Kidrobot’s booth (#2674) for $100 each. Jeff will be signing from 1 to 3 PM.
Alexone – Lowrider @ NYCC
Artoyz Originals sent several new toys to NYCC for display in the Vinyl Pulse booth including the never-seen-before Lowrider from French graffiti artist Alexone. Due in 2011, this sweet piece features a lowrider riding high on hydraulic shocks with an eclectic driver and a set of birds-in-crime as passengers along for the ride and painting mission. Blending car culture, graffiti, and characters which exude a measured dose of ‘toon DNA, Lowrider presents an attractive aesthetic. The slightly loose treatment results in a strong free-flowing piece. We’re really looking forward to this release – definitely near the top of our list for upcoming figures.
Quick Look: Vinyl Pulse Spotlight @ NYCC
After a few hectic hours arranging toys in the large display case, the Vinyl Pulse Spotlight was locked and ready for viewing around Noon on Friday in our booth (#2577). Drawn in by the large 1:1 Paw! bust by Coarse, vinyl collectors and curious passer-bys stopped to look at the collection of mostly upcoming figures including a few never seen-before pieces produced by Artoyz, Bic Plastics, Coarse, Kuso Vinyl, Munky King, Muttpop, myplasticheart, The Loyal Subjects and Vannen. It’s an honor to show the work of these top companies and artists. Thanks again to all of those that helped make this a reality. If you haven’t swung by the booth yet, come on by – to get a good look at some great figures. Full updates and pics early Saturday.
NYCC Off to a Nice Start
NYCC 2010 began on Friday (10.8) @ the Javits Center. The largest floor-plan to date featured plenty of pop culture, comics and video game action to go around. Of course our focus was on the new ‘Cultyard section featuring designer toy companies, alternative apparel, art and more. To help you get your vicarious bearings, here’s a quick overview of the show as a whole.
Jared Deal @ NYCC
It’s very convenient to be blogging from a booth here at NYCC, because we can just step out, take pictures, then blog it right away. I found myself at Jared Deals booth (#2686), where he his resin figures on display. He created these two new series for the show, The Flock and Timber – The Forest Spirit, which are all painted in various colors. Take closer look at them after the jump.
Paul Kaiju @ NYCC
Taking up part of the Onell Design Booth (#2780), Paul Kaiju has a nice chunk of both Customs and resin figures. Available today were a bunch of his mini Boss Carrions, Mock Bats, and Baby Biters. We also enjoyed looking at his collaborative Biter figures with Gylos bodies. My personal favorite would have to be the custom Boss Carrions and Biterman figures. More pictures can be found after the jump.
Monster Worship @ NYCC
We just stopped by the Monster Worship booth (#2682) and saw their table covered in amazing pieces! They had tons of Kusogon figures available and even a sweet little display of them doing some damage. Plaseebo also made his presence strong with a ton of his beautiful pieces. They are definitely something you would have to check out in person. We cannot forget about Jeff Lamm’s Greasebat, where they had a surprise release of a new fully painted colorway of Greasebat. Take a look at our pics after the jump.
