July 2017

"Yo! Joe!  G.I. Joe!  A Real American Hero!" --> If that doesn't put you right back into the sand pit or curled up on your couch after school with a bowl of Captain Crunch then I don't know what does!  G.I. Joe is a pillar of our youth!  The TV series!  The Toys!  The Vehicles!  The Playsets!  Heaven!  I got my first G.I. Joe when I was 10.  There used to be a spinner rack at Thriftys that had Star Wars toys on it.

If you're an Attack on Titan fan these new Action Vinyls are a must have!  Packed with great story telling features; tons of articulation, great paint details, great expressions, tons of accessories, Build-A-Titans, collector cards, RARE chase figures, Club 28 and a whole mess of Titan battle carnage!  We love the Anime, it's obvious, right?!  How could we not jump at the oppotunity to extract specifics from this great and imaginative anime and fuse them into our Action Vinyls!

San Diego Comic Con 2017 was pure magic!  It's our 5th in TLS history, certainly our biggest, our most fun and undoubtedly our most rewarding!  The reward was the communion - an equal communion of play, fun, anticipation, imagination, friendship and connections all stemming from our mutual love of pop culture and, of course, the Action Vinyls!   We love what we do and we hopefully pass our passion to you in a fun, imaginative, playful, artful, quality collectible --> Action Vinyls!   

San Diego Comic Con is literally an entire calendar year in the making.  Our Goal is to communicate with our customers directly in a very unique, curated, visceral, experential and dynamic way.  By offering a range of offerings in very limited numbers.  We want each release to feel like Christmas morning.  We're infused with your excitement just as much as we believe you can feel our excitement!  The payoff is a great experience, a great communion - watching the joy as Christmas comes 6 months earlier!

Them Dragons are flying!  It's absolutely amazing seeing the TLS Army's support of the HTTYD TLS Action Vinyls Line!  If ever there was a labor of love it's Dragons.  We went through several conceptual iterations which took almost 2 years!  These were very intricate, detailed collectibles and we really were aiming for the sky.  Our first concept included sounds, LED effects but proved to be out of reach if we were to bring those ideas to market - just think, a Dragon that cost $60.00!!  Too much.

The Loyal Subjects BOOTH #4951 - Cutting to the wire!  A lot of work went into bringing 26 high quality exclusives, all very limited numbers, to SDCC this year!  Our biggest year yet!  Our aim is to curate a high value, story telling, high quality, nuanced, affordable, collectible and exclusive experience for the TLS fam!  We chose each exclusive carefully, we limited the production numbers and we think we came up with the best 26 exclusive releases on that Convention floor!  We're going to blow your socks off!
