Sculpted by Julie B., the frost edition is cast in clear Japanese vinyl and is filled with prismatic tape which gives the cool cat an iridescent shine.

Brand Loyalty’s Tsaur Proto @ NYCC
One of the toys that caught our eye @ NYCC was Tsaur, a mecha-style lizard, from Brand Loyalty. The 7” figure slated to be released in Japanese Vinyl from Lulubell toys, was shown in proto form at their booth in two colorways. Tsaur was also sighted at the Lulubell event at the Cotton Candy Machine on Saturday evening in a special baby blue/salmon edition. The sculpt on this is dead-on, chunky yet nicely detailed. Tsaur nails the toy mecha reptile vibe while bringing its own style and flair. In other words, it telepathically whispers to you, “buy me”.

Andrew Bell – myplasticheart NYCC Exclusive Glop in a Box

This resin figure marks the third release and is limited to only 8 pieces. He will be available beginning on Friday, October 14th for $100 each.
“They told the public it was excellent engineering, but there was another reason those Mars rovers lasted so long… someone or something was fixing them. The cameras captured glimpses, an eye here, an arm there. A top secret mission was mounted to investigate, samples were acquired and sent back to NASA. Unfortunately as soon as they arrived, the entire project budget was slashed and the boxes of samples sat unattended in a dark closet somewhere in Florida… until today.”
