The Loyal Subjects

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!

Toys R Us MOTU Exclusives are now on shelf at participating Toys R Us!  Get Disco with it, get Maskor with it, get Mini Comic Variant He-Man with it!  The Disco Skeletor is where it's at.  Certainly a must have for the TLS MOTU Action Vinyls collectors!  Very limited quantities are available so check with your local Toys R Us for stock!  This set does include a Club 28, a couple random prototypes, and a single Gold He-Man!  The Toys R Us assortment ties up the last Retail Assortment for MOTU Wave 1!

TLS Nation!  We're extremely proud of this new bundle.  It's a limited edition Action Vinyls Power Rangers set exclusive to Amazon, and get this! ---> You get a first look digital HD copy of the 2017 Saban's Power Rangers Movie!  How killer is that!  The inspiration behind the set from TLS' creative; TLS is known for being the Gen 1 guys.  We rewake the spirit of very influential, legacy, steeped, rich pop culture properties.

Finally!  We know!  This project was certainly a labor of love and went through several itirations.  As they say, patience is a virtue and for those who have been patient, our sincerest apologies but we know you'll be exceptionally excited by the high quality, poseability and detail in this Exclusive Dragons Action Vinyls set!  We thank you tremendously for hanging in there.  And for those who have not purchased, this is a must have.

THIS JUST IN!  HOT TOPIC MOTU EXCLUSIVE ON SHELVES NOW!

Hello He-Man fans!  TLS just launched another MOTU exclusive and it's ONLY available at Target!  Items are hitting the shelves as we speak so definitely check your local Target for availability.  The Target exclusive includes several of your favorite variants, including a Club 28 Slime Pit He-Man!  Also included are Mini-Comic and Mini-Comic Variant Editions!  The TLS x MOTU x Target offering are extremely Limited.  A great and rare collection for all He-Man fans!

GO! GO! POWER RANGERS!  I hope all of you were as hyped as we are on the new Power Rangers movie!  So fun!  The Loyal Subjects is proud to be part of the Power Rangers Universe, having the only Power Rangers collectible on shelf with removable helmets, Mini-Rangers with removable helmets, and all the killer accessories, collector cards, chase figures, bells, whistles and the kitchen sink!  No doubt, TLS has the most dynamic products in the trend and collectibles section at Walmart and Target.

Some of our friends have been on this journey with TLS since day 1.  We've sold well over a million products worldwide since the Company's start.  We're a unique story.  We've certainly bucked the trend, we're steadfast in making sure we bring a quality experience to our collectors, we pride ourselves on imagination over quantity, quality over price points and we have been a boot strapped ma and pa operation since day 1.

We've had a great start at Walmart.  Thanks to you we've had top 25 items in Boy's Action Figures and Construction.  That is HUGE!  The Walmart Exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers "The Movie" Exclusives are hot!  Very limited supplies are left but perfect timing!  The Power Rangers Movie releases tonight in a theater near you and there's no doubt you'll fall in love with the Red, Blue and Yellow Rangers!   These Three Rangers have Metallic treatments and are ONLY available at Walmart!

It's been an honor for TLS to have the opportunity to work on DBZ in our Action Vinyls format.  What a great legacy, what great characters, what great stories!  These exclusives are one and done so definitely hang on to them.  In each retailer packout, all things considering these were very low runs.  More so, we packed a lot of awesome in each figure; including killer articulation, interchangeable hands with different grips, all 7 Dragon Balls, a Shenron Build-A-Figure (FREE!), a Power Up base, accessories and collectors cards!

In celebration of International Women's Day, The Loyal Subjects would like to acknowledge the great contributions of women the world round.  Our heroes include Mothers, Sisters, Wives, Neighbors, Freedom Fighters, Equal Rights Fighters, Our Business Leaders, Our Intellectual Leaders, Our Political Leaders,  Our Spiritual Leaders, Our Professional Leaders, Our Service Leaders, Our Educators, Our Mentors, and ALL the women whose contributions are too mant to list.

Hello all DBZ/Action Vinyls/TLS faithful!

When the DBZ General Release packs hit circulation, you may notice that the Super Saiyan Vegeta is labelled as a chase.  This is in fact not the case.  The ONLY chase figures in the General Release are the 1/24 Kid Buu and the 1/96 Super Saiyan Goku.  Super Saiyan Vegeta is common in the Walmart exclusive which eliminates it from being a chase in all other sets.  Although still limited edition, more of this particular character exist than a 1/48 edition.
 

Leaving Hong Kong, on a big ole Jet Plane, thinking about my home!  Not quite sunny LA, but my next favorite City, NEW *bleepin* YORK!  We're coming for ya'!  We, meaning, TLS and we are bringing fire!  Sneak peeks of our Summer and Fall lines (sure, many of you can guess - something about a Cat who is Thunderous, another about an Alien or Aliens, and another about a Man who is Mega!).  We have big 40' profile, showing off current lines and new lines.  The things Action Vinyls dreams are made of!

Hello DBZ Fans and Collectors!  Another exclusive set is hitting retail.  Hot Topic's Exclusive packout from DBZ is available now!  Very limited in availability and includes THREE NEW CHASE Figures, including; Metallic Krillin (1/96),  Metallic Super Saiyan Vegeta (1/48) and Neon Vegeta Club 28!  A single Gold Super Saiyan Goku with official stamp, plus two prototypes are also hidden in the packout!  This will be collectors first shot at Gohan too!  Shenron Build-A-Figure is also hidden inside the 12 count Power Pak!

Gudetama, "The Lazy Egg" available now and Exclusive to Hot Topic!  

Here's my story about Gudetama -

If you haven't heard, G.I. Joe Wave 2 is out!  ONLY select retailers stock these beautiful, detailed, articulated, and nuanced Action Vinyls!  Harkens back to the days of old when we suspended reality, got lost in the backyard and created a whole world where Snake Eyes battled the onslaught of Cobra Soldiers!  Wave 2 is packed with a rich arsenal of signature accessories and blasters!  A must have for G.I. Joe fans and fans of the Action Vinyls Universe!  AND they are available at your local Hot Topic now!

The Loyal Subjects is proud to add Walmart to the TLS Retailer family!  Starting this weekend, TLS faithfuls will find The Loyal Subjects Action Vinyls showcased in a designated Collectibles section at 2,353 Walmarts.  TLS is launching Exclusive Walmart characters and colors for Dragon Ball Z, Masters of the Universe and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers “The Movie”.  Here’s what to look for (shows picture).

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):

IMPORTANT NEWS:  Tomorrow's Super Double Diamond Membership Offering - Both the Domestic and International Pay In Full Membership packages WILL BE LIVE @ NOON PDT tomorrow, however, the LAYAWAY PACKAGES will not be available until next Thursday at NOON PDT.  Reason - the widget needed to create the recurring 30 day billing for 4 months, keep the correct inventory intact and track the single purchase will take a few days to create and test.  We've gone over this extensively with our web master and unfortunately there will be a delay. 

The thought process was simple - How can we give our HxC Loyalists the best of TLS, make it insanley EXCLUSIVE, cap the membership for life and as long as our TLS Family retains this Membership we'll give them the ride of their life, and currency to trade inside the TLS Universe and Community.  The Answer was more simple - let's give them everything under the sun and then some.  Only 1000 Members for life and we'll call it the Super Double Diamond Club.

Dimitri Coats has a marvelous life; a dad to two great kids, a musician in an influential band, a good pal to his friends, a healthy dose of SoCal sun beating down on his mop top, nary a care in the world until one day he's visited by an alien being who goes by the name Optimus Prime.  From that day forward Dimitri corsses paths with Optimus Prime, a robot and self proclaimed Autobot descending from planet Cybertron here to protect sentient beings from the impending threat and invasion by the rival Decepticons.  Even Dimitri's neighbor gets caught up in the scuffle.

Optimus Prime has been haunting our dear friend Dimitri Coats for some time (guitar player for the criticaly acclaimed Vice Records band OFF!)  We believe he's giving Dimitri "fair warning" about the impending Decepticon threat.  Dimitri confused by Prime's random appearances and seeming ominous predictions wrestles with the message - is he here to help me?  In this case, Optimus Prime shows up in the most unlikely places, Dimitri's office; the stage for his show last weekend at Riot Fest in Denver, CO.

Here's the scoop!

Limit 3 per exclusive per customer, both online and at the show.  The show schedule is posted above - the Nickelodeon exclusive releases are our suggested times but you'll have to go to Nick's booth to confirm.

Online Schedule:

If Wave 1 wasn't good enough, sheeeueee!  Wave 2 is H E A T!  Your favorite Turtles are back with bigger expressions, brighter colors, new accessories and donning (no pun intended Donny) the classic cartoon Turtle Letterplate belt buckles!  Shredder is back, so is Master Splinter but we've added a whole new mix of your favorite villains; including Leatherhead, BeBop, Rocksteady and of course, the classic cartoon edition Foot Clan Solider.  The chases will be hot, plenty of easter eggs to collect.

I feel like I'm 1000 miles behind of blog posts.  Instagram has been our visual narrative but we have to connect back to our writing tools to plug in the details.  The last 8 mos have been insane - we've been overseas for much of it, producing our new lines, pushing new licenses into various stages of development, getting ready for our Hastings releases, for our SDCC releases, getting ready of our Fall rleases and the many releases stacked up for Holiday.  These last two years have been bonkers!

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 has been a show of force.  The biggest one we've hosted to date.  Today is the LAST day for those crazy stepped super discounts!  Don't miss out.  It's equivalent to buying a case and getting one for free.  How insane is that!  Happy Holidays folks.  Thak you for all of your support!   You're minds are going to melt when you see Transformers Wave 3 and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Wave 1.  These Action Vinyls are sooo next level!

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.

If you're watching our Instagram, many of you know about our GameStop exclusives hitting the stores in a couple days.  A couple of days?!  What?!  Yes, that's right, December 10th!  Woot woot!   What's in the offering you say?  A face full of awesomeness from our two favorite platforms; TRANSFORMERS and TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURLTES.  What makes this product so special you ask?  For starters, these are all windowbox so you can pick and choose your favorite characters.

Our friends in the world are receiving their TLS Action Vinyls TMNT Wave 1 Collectibles.  Click Read More for video of our friends Josh Ty and Ben Tenn getting some choice pulls!  If you're not a member of our FB Trading club please join - www.facebook.com/Groups/TLSOFFICIAL ...saweeeet!

 

COMIKAZE!!  Crazy like it sounds.  We popped up our little 10' x10' Shop not expecting too much; dipping the proverbial toe.  We were shocked with the turn-out.  Saturday looked like Comic-Con 12 years ago - tons of energy, great vibes, community, a ton of look-i-loos,  generally curious about what was happening.  You could feel the swell.  This show has legs and we'll be sure to stretch ours next year into a deeper shoe.  Halloween brought out the costumes?

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.

They're not glam shots, but here's a sneak preview as to what Super Double Diamond Club members can expect to be seeing in their shipments very soon!  

Note that there's only 98 of all crystal clear versions. The other two colors are 451 each. (*Missing* Clear Purple Skeletor. )

Thanks so much for your loyal support!!!

Please see below for all the Target locations carrying TLS!

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!

Happy Friday!  This week we've got a TLS collector whom many already know and love, Robert Strawder!  Rob's truly a unique character, and a person who TLS will always consider one of our own.  We would certainly be pressed to find anyone else who can rock geek swagger harder than Rob does.  Our friend has it down pat, and makes being fly look easy.  He's also got a true passion for collecting, and knows his nerd-canon through and through.  We can ramble on about how awesome this fella is, but let's hear what he had say...

Happy Friday to all the good folks out there!
