Pushead @ NYCC
Pushead continued his annual NYCC event at Toy Tokyo earlier this afternoon. Following last year's successful and quite popular back room setting, this year's event was held in the rear corridor behind the booth -- allowing each collector a personal and private experience. Pushead graciously gave Vinyl Pulse a quick peek of the production releases which included a Rebel Captain, a Skull Captain, a Skull Pirate, a Skull Wing and a pair of Siamese Skull Wings. Enjoy the photos after the jump.
NYCC Flash: MAD Signing @ myplasticheart
MAD signed for fans and collectors at the myplasticheart booth on Friday afternoon. He brought along the new Bruce Lee minis from Round 5, as well as sever resin mini MADLs, a few solid color 10” vinyl MADL’s and a black proto of the upcoming Modern hero resin. Since the line continued to grow as his official signing session ended, he then switched to the side table to sign and sketch for all of his fans.
Modern Hero looks really good up close. While the proto has a bit of a matte finish, the final production pieces will be nice and glossy. An original Modern Hero figure has been awhile in the works, though the wait is almost over. Look for an end-of-the year drop.
NYCC Flash: Sitting Mini Greasebat Proto
