From Nashville to Tokyo.

First off, I have 100 blogs to write.  My last update was a shout-out to Predators making their way to the shelves at Walgreens.  It looks like folks are enjoying the Predator packouts.  I love this line, I say this about every line but of course they're all my babies.  I dare not cast any one line into the shallows, they are all precious, my precious (hint).  A ton has passed since the last update – plans, tra

This year marked the 5th annual Fan Jam.  An idea first presented by a friend of the Company, with the simple implication, “Let's do something special for folks who like, and support TLS”.  Great idea (I thought), a fan appreciation event but without the walls and borders between folks who like TLS and the folks who work at TLS…a “break down the velvet rope” style event in which we all mingle, chop it up, share

Nashville, here we come! 

SDCC 2019 is in the books.  It's a long journey; no wonder there’s a void, a little emptiness the week after.  We’re busy all year; we have deadlines, releases, timed releases, retailer exclusives, set dates – a smorgasbord of frenetic activity played to the cacophonic, yet harmonic tune of everything and all things into the stew pot at once.  And the stew still tastes good…better than good…great!  We have no downti

It’s hard not to be Pollyanna about your Brand.  Hopefully my stoke transfers, and becomes your stoke.  I make collectibles because I like to build, I build because I like to share, I create because creating is sharing on a much more intimate level, sort of a soul bond per se, especially if your creation connects with another human, and hopefully your creation takes on a whole new meaning, or an amplified meaning with it’s ne

My grandfather used to have a study.  More like a converted bedroom/study.  My grandparents were born in the early 20th Century, my grandfather a WWII vet, the “Greatest Generation”.  In so, very old school, traditional, he used to warn about the “laying on of hands”, his way of saying “shake my hand but don't hug me.”  He was born in Columbia, Tennessee, not far from Nashville.  My father was born i

The Loyal Subjects was born from a letter to friends, and family, aptly titled “The Loyal Subjects”.  I was going through a transition; a failed attempt at a business, a musician, and a show creator.  I had creative juju but zero business sense.  A literal creative in the wholesome term – all things creative matter, everything else a distraction.  After my failed attempts, I received a divine moment of whiplash, the

Winner!  Winner!  Chicken dinner!

I said, train kept a-rolling all night long, train kept a rolling all night long!  It's been two weeks since the pallet train hit the tracks, two weeks, and TLS has been flyin’ like a freight train, on the ole pallet train…choo choo!  When I started TLS, almost 10 years ago, and if anyone came tappin’ on my shoulder, “Hey there buddy, you’re going make a bunch of killer collectibles, it’s going to be in a giant Dragon head ca

The Game continues.  No spoilers here. 

For Immediate Release - New York Toy Fair:

Feburary 15th, 2019

I woke up this morning, ready to track the wilds, through the old town Nuremberg.  Reconstructed after the Allied bombings, sweepings, takeover.   Flash marks stain the bricks, where the flash marks are none new bricks appear in the old style, the reconstruction of this fabled town brought on by its destruction.   All is quite in Albrecht Durer’s house, large quarters, prestige and well postured below the shado

“It's Friday night, I got tears in my eyes, I have to go to hell before I get to heaven, big ole Jet Airliner!”  I don't have tears in my eyes, but I am hitting the road Monday, off to Nuremberg, Toy Fair.  The Toy Fair with the killer name – Spielwarenmess…make sure to pronounce those “W’s” like “V’s”.  Maybe I have a couple tears.  The forecast is 70 degrees all week in Los Angeles, snowy and chilly all week in Nu

I was living in West Hollywood.  I had a friend, a really funny guy.  Loved music, loved tattoos, loved comic books, loved horror movies, a big Star Wars fan.  We met skateboarding in the quads at Santa Monica City College.  A funny group of folks hung on the quad – Mike Eizinger

I have an older sister.  Being the kid brother I was put through the sibling gauntlet of experimentation.   Occasionally I would get a hug and compliment but mostly terror.  A hose turned on while dressed for church, a practical joke extending to my sister and her gaggle of gossiping goons (aka mallrats), the “I’m going to lick your

I wake up, excited, feelings of surging adrenaline, anticipation; I can hardly control my speed – my brain a million miles a minute, my speech volume on 10, my feet fast as Scooby Doo’s.  The sun is piling in the open aired home.  A breeze settles.  The flowing fabric, rippled in waves, like the movement of a flag proudly cresting it&rsq

I’m sure you’ve heard it before.  It goes by many names; Murphy’s Law, Mercury in Retrograde, Human Error, Bad Luck, Black Cats, Lucky Number 13...if you believe in superstitions or voodoo (I do), some times the Universe has its own inexplicable plan and the best thing you can do is surrender to it’s omnipotent and unrelenting forces.  In the end, everythin

When I was 19 I got a job at a NaNa, a sort of punk rock atelier.  A fresh face from Orange County, new to LA, just enrolled in Santa Monica City College, came to LA to play in bands, make records and make it big (so I thought).  Anything music related I was drawn to.  I had begged a friend’s girlfriend who had managed a NaNa location on 3rd Street in Los Ang

I live in a great part of West Hollywood.  I feel connected to my community, I should, I’ve lived in West Hollywood going on 22 years.  Originally from the suburbs of Laguna Beach I vowed in a praetorian declaration to my mother as a wholly confident 12 year old that I would never live more than 5 miles from the ocean, and if circumstances were such, death would become me.  Shortly after High School I traded in my surf gear for a pair of drumsticks, stricken by Rock N Roll fever I followed my sickness to Los Angeles where a cure waited from

"La-dee-dee-la-dee-da!"  Spring is here!  The flowers are blooming, the leaves are sprouting, dogs and cats are tap dancing, jackets are being stowed away, a fresh new batch of short sleeve shirts are making it to the top of the wardrobe heap, socks are coming off revealing some pale loafs that once resembled feet, and folks like TLS™ are clearing space in their warehouse for a new batch of Action Vinyls™ goodness.  In order to do so, we need to create an awesome sale.  Just so happens said space is being occupied by rem

Booth #4951

Waiting on the door step (T-Minus 4 hours and counting) of another great TLS showing at SDCC!  Here are the updates and schedule (below):

CYBER MONDAY!  Afterall, we're all online ALL THE TIME!  This sale makes the most sense, especially for you savvy collectors.  Stay at home or shop from work.  Let your fingers do the bidding and voila, Holiday Super Savings!  

BLACK FRIDAY!  Sounds ominous, no?  Not here at TLS.  Santa's Little Elves have been working tirelessly to bring you SUPER DEALS for this Holiday Season.  We're feeling a little extra generous these days so we decided to roll out our Two Most Prestigious offerings and wrap them up in the BLACK FRIDAY DEALS!  Here it goes - Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Transformers Wave 3 both will be available for Presale this Black Friday, or Thursday Night at Midnight EST and will end Sunday at Midnight.

COMIKAZE!!  AHHHH!

I’ve explained this for years – Comic Con is like Halloween but in July.  It’s colorful, a celebration of (nearly all) things pop culture; folks are happy, engaged, invested, and whole heartedly adopt the suspension of disbelief for the better part of a week as (most do) dive in head first into the “Let your freak flag fly” mantra.

Our pal Pixel Dan visited us at San Diego Comic Con 2016 to discuss everything new and exciting with Action Vinyls!  We're talking previews of Gudetama, MMPR Wave 2, Street Fighter & Dragon Ball Z!  Take a look at the video, and see what we have in store for our familia of Action Vinyls collectors.

See you all next year!

TLS Official is always finding new ways to surprise us with it's outpouring of wit and creativity. In a most recent giveaway, admin Steve Johnson told the group to post a pic of 2 and only 2 Action Vinyls, with the condition that each must be from a different TLS series. Leaving the submission rules open for interpretation inspired some increbly hilarious Action Vinyls pics and memes to surface.

As a reward for all of the early adopters and believers of the brand, we are proud to announce a Super Double Diamond Club Membership event that is sure to excite…
