On Saturday afternoon, Mark Landwehr of Coarse Toys drew a very large crowd for his signing @ the Pixie Booth. Coarse Toys has in quick order captured the imagination of collectors looking for high-quality distinctive figures. The new Milky Bliss Paw and Jaw Switch proved quite popular, not surprising given the instant sell-out of line sales on Coarse HKG.
Coarse collectors not only purchased the new figures but also brought their prized pieces for signing including at least one 1:3 pain spotted in the line. Mark mentioned that one collector brought their entire collection featuring basically every Coarse toy including the old school switch/cream figures.
The popularity of Coarse toys starts with Mark’s fresh characters and continues with an extremely high-quality collecting experience from the pristine figures to the lust worthy packaging. While this may be known – it was a pleasant surprise to learn that Mark and his team personally hand-check each and every individual figure before it is boxed and have done so since the company’s start. Additionally, they have exacting QC specs including details such as an extremely tight scratch policy, how boxes are to be taped, and the alignment of stickers or labels on packaging. Mark feels strongly that collectors deserve the very best experience possible. Very impressive.
Next up? SDCC 🙂
