THE LOYAL SUBJECTS ACTION VINYLS COLLECTIBLE FIGURES TAKEOVER NEW YORK AT ANNUAL TOY FAIR

THE LOYAL SUBJECTS ACTION VINYLS COLLECTIBLE FIGURES

TAKEOVER NEW YORK AT ANNUAL TOY FAIR

Poseable Action Vinyls™ Illuminate a Pathway Back to Play for Collectors!

Los Angeles, Calif. – (February 16, 2018) – The Loyal Subjects™ (TLS) – a collectible toy company – is bringing its World Without Borders™ to the Big Apple during the upcoming annual North American International Toy Fair February 17-20. The company will preview its exciting 2018 product line-up in booth #6665, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Not all collectible figures are treated equal, unless they’re from TLS. The company creates collectible three and a quarter inch (3.25”) stylized Action Vinyls™ (AV), highly detailed, poseable figures that are like nothing else on the market. Action Vinyls lines feature fine-tuned elements, including 12 points of articulation – making them hyper-poseable – plus great sculpt and paint details. AV figures include accessories and collector cards, and many AV lines are packaged in a blind box format with rare chase figures, all for an approximate retail price of $12.99 each. Small figures that PLAY BIG!

All this attention to detail with Action Vinyls styling enables deeper play experiences with dynamic interaction among figures from different lines. In the TLS Universe it makes perfect sense for Skeletor™ to take on the Red Ranger™ or have Raphael™ (TMNT) battle Vegeta™ – it’s action figures in “Super Smash Bros” style! Having a uniform size and style plus interchangeable accessories across AV lines makes the worlds blend seamlessly.

“The uniqueness of our Action Vinyls is that there are no borders within the TLS Universe. We give the controls back to the collector, so they’re in charge of their own story, their own army building/capture the flag campaign. The power of TLS Action Vinyls are the story telling capabilities inherent in a highly detailed, poseable collectible. We provide that little spark to the collector’s imagination and watch that fire ignite when the collectors go knee deep into their stories. It’s magical!,” noted Jonathan Cathey, The Loyal Subjects Founder/CEO and President. “We are driven by consumer passion. We hear time-and-time again that The Loyal Subjects collectibles are drivers for a more enhanced, fulfilled customer experience. It’s like the “Indian in the Cupboard” – our figures spring to life! Collectors become their own screenwriters, producers, actors, and directors of their own show and that’s really powerful!”

The Loyal Subjects is an emerging brand that is thriving at big box retailers, such as Walmart and Target, and is also formidable on specialty store shelves, including Hot Topic, GameStop, and Toys“R”Us. The company has sold more than 2MM Action Vinyls collectible figures since its first AV release in 2012. TLS has enjoyed rapid expansion over the past couple of years as it moved to the “main stage,” propelled by a growing base of passionate collectors who are known to drive hundreds of miles to visit many stores in order to load up on TLS AV figures.

· Mega Man: Available now at mass market and specialty retail locations

IAmElemental to Unveil New Female Action Figure at Toy Fair NY

IAmElemental to Unveil New Female Action Figure at Toy Fair NY

NEW YORK – February 1, 2018 – IAmElemental, creators of the first female action figures designed specifically for children, will reveal the company’s new Series 2/Wisdom Warrior Core Power action figure at Booth #5207 at the North American International Toy Fair on February 17-20, 2018.

IAmElemental’s strong, healthy female action figures invite girls and boys to develop their character by playing with “The Elements of Power.” The company’s Series 1/Courage figures, modeled on Joan of Arc, were launched on Kickstarter to worldwide acclaim in 2014. Series 2/Wisdom followed in 2016, with ancient Alexandrian STEM pioneer Hypatia as the muse. Each series culminates in the release of a 6.5” Core Power figure, which is a fusion of all Elements in the series.

According to IAmElemental’s Chief Elemental Officer, Julie Kerwin, “Our Series 2/Wisdom Warrior Core Power Figure represents seven Superpowers that reside inside us all: Creativity, Ingenuity, Curiosity, Logic, Exploration, Mastery and Oblivion. Kids and collectors alike are sure to appreciate this fierce Wisdom Warrior. Her translucent bow, shaped like a sliver of the moon, references both Artemis, the mythic huntress, as well as Creativity’s power to hunt down new ideas. Her armor and cape combination derive from both Logic and Mastery. And her hair’s intricate yet battle-ready style — a nod to Hypatia’s Egyptian birthplace — continues our theme of power as action.”

The Wisdom Warrior Core Power Figure features more than 30 points of articulation and includes removable accessories including a helmet, armor, powerful bow and arrow, and Wisdom shield. The figure will retail for $24.99.

IAmElemental was named a 2017 Toy of the Year finalist by the Toy Industry Association in the Rookie of the Year and Action Figure of the Year categories for its Series 1/Courage figures. Its Series 2/Wisdom figures are finalists for 2018 Toy of the Year in the Action Figure category. In November 2017, the company announced a partnership with The Jim Henson Company to develop a new animated children’s television series based on its popular female action figures.

Playmates Voltron 84 review

I guess I should really quickly explain what Voltron is, just in case you stumbled upon this article. Voltron: Defender of the Universe was an animated television series that featured a team of space explorers who piloted a giant robot known as “Voltron.” The series was initially produced as a joint venture between World Events Productions and Toei Animation. The original television series aired in syndication from September 10, 1984 to November 18, 1985. The first season of Voltron, featuring the “Lion Force Voltron,” was adapted from the Japanese anime television series Beast King GoLion. Now that you know, let’s talk about these figures! Playmates 100% delivered on the goods with their Voltron ’84 lions. We were sent two of the iconic lions, the legendary Green Lion:

 

And the amazing legendary Yellow Lion:

These figures are not just reminiscent of the orignal diecast lions:

but also have a bit of the Panosh Place lions as well:

These figures come fully loaded for battle. And with the simple edition of a locking system for the weapons that go inside the lions’ mouths it really helps to make these toys feel like something special. The accessories are exactly what they should be. Each lion had a unique weapon and fit the overall design. I guess the only real con I find with this set is that they aren’t diecast metal. Being a fan who grew up with the diecast metal lion set as a child, you really want them to be like you remembered. But honestly you would never pay the price for a full diecast set (at retail). So for the price, overall design and for the sheer size this is to me the definitive Voltron set! We 100% recommend you buying the whole set and enjoying the nostalgia, but enjoy the playability and construction of this new lions as well.

Voltron Classic ’84 Legendary Lion Collection Overview: Combine all five Classic Legendary Lions to form a fully-articulated 16″ Classic Voltron figure with a chest that lights up and unlock over 60 sounds from the original 1984 show! Each lion is fully articulated, with the Blue, Red, Green, and Yellow Lions including jaw blades and projectile firing battle accessories. Also, the Red Lion comes with Voltron’s sword and the Green Lion comes with Voltron’s shield. The Classic Legendary Black Lion has electronic lights and features over a dozen phrases and sound effects from the original 1984 show. Unlock the Black Lion’s 60+ sounds by assembling the 16″ Classic Voltron figure. The Black Lion transforms into the head and body of Voltron, while the four other Classic Legendary Lions transform and combine to form Voltron’s arms and legs. Recommended Age: 4+ MSRP: $17.99 each for the Blue, Green, Red and Yellow Classic Legendary Lions $29.99 for the Black Classic Legendary Lion.
