Kidrobot has teamed up with mobile games brand Seriously on a line of new vinyl and plush toys based on their extremely popular Best Fiends game. The line will launch at SDCC with a limited GID edition of the vinyl Slug figure –- the game’s baddies. Rather than just the toys following the game, Seriously will simultaneously launch the Valley of the Slugs update which will bring the GID slugs into the game.
If you haven’t played Best Fiends (me, until about 10 minutes ago…), it’s a well polished “match” puzzler with some light RPG elements than enable you to level up your group of characters(“Fiends”). It’s available on Android /Amazon Fire/iOS platforms.
We’re curious to learn more about the new line including product details such as the Slug’s size and whether these will be standalone releases only or if a mini-fig series might be in the works as well.
