SDCC

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

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

July is a great time of year, it has always been, for me.   There’s a nostalgia about the seasons, for many centering around Holidays, family get-togethers, another story arc in the chain from years past, to present – “Hey, remember that time when Uncle Jimmy shorted the power out on the entire block when he tried connecting the Christmas lights to Aunt Jenny’s “Funny” back massager charger?  Yeah, that was awesome!  I hope Aunt Jenny catches the ginger bread house on fire again!” 

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

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!

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!

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:

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!!!

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!

Dear Loyalists,

Thank you to everyone for all the support, and patience these past few weeks.  We are truly grateful for the outpouring of love, and understanding in regard to the shipping delays.  We're finally getting things back on track, and shipping web orders at a steady pace.  We do however have some not so fun news to share about the 8" Metallic & Regular edition Jumbo Leo's ordered from our web store.

SHIPPING UPDATE: Good news everyone! We started shipping web orders today, so expect to see tracking numbers rolling through this week and next!  Big thank you's to everyone for hanging in there while we moved facilities.  Your support and patience is much appreciated.  Again, apologies for the delay >___<

We're bringing a double-whammy for this SDCC exclusive reveal!  Saturday, July 11th - 3p - signing with Joe Allard.  White "Metallic" Ranger and "Metallic" Lord Zedd 2 pack windowbox set. Only 500 avail.  Be there or be square.  Best set yet!   

Friday is not just fire, it's a caldron.  July 10th

Don't miss Thursday at SDCC!  We're bringing heat again!  Starting at 11a with Joe Allard signing what we're calling (in house) the Jolly Rancher Power Ranger but officially, Red Ranger "Crystal Edition".  This piece is gorgeous and limited to 500 piece so get there quick!  You're 3.25' ACTION VINYL format with loads of articulation and accessories, including his Blade Blaster and Sword.  Packed on a killer blister c

SDCC is right around the corner and we're ready like college students cramming for mid terms.  We are PACKED with Exclusives.  Bringing serious fire this year.  Our previous three years were a little light on exclusives but alas, we heard the calling loud and clear - our TLS Army spoke and we listened so here you go.  Let's make this the best Comic Con to date and let's have a really GOOD TIME!  Booth #5050 - be there or be square!

Shredder and his Foot Clan goons better watch their backs, because Stealth edition TMNT Action Vinyls have arrived.  These hidden heroes of the dark are the silent shadows every villain will fear, and cower to.  Assuming they even have the chance to spot them! 

With San Diego Comic Con just a few months away we thought we'd preview the TMNT exclusives slated for release at the convention.  Be sure to stop by booth 5050 while supplies last.  GO NINJA GO NINJA GO!

It's o-so-close.  Can't you feel the breeze coming off the bay, the salt water in the air, the anticipation, the smell of costplay, the crazies running wild in the streets, the bars overflowing with Spiderman costumes, Living Dead Zombies dropping limbs and drool?  I can.  It's that time again.  It's equivalent to Christmas Morning.  Not just for the fans but also the Companies.  We've been working on these exclusives since the latter part of last year and now it's time to unveil all of our hard work.

Hey all!  So, there's this little tiny show that we do every year.  It's called san Diego Comic Con.  It's basicaly us, the rest of the free world and a whole lot of sparkle, enough to turn Downtown San Diego into a Film Festival, Freak Show and Fan Mecca for an entire week.  If you haven't been, I strongly encourage you to go.  Experiences galore, new friends and great people in the perfect Southern California setting (outside Los Angeles and Laguna Beach of course).  Sun Fun and Pokeman.

We're mental.  Clearly.  Super mental - lock us up, throw away the key, stick us on an island and toss coconuts at us all day - mental.  We have 8 different Exclusives for this SDCC.  E I G H T.  Hurts just to say it.  So ritcheous.  We go the extra mile to stoke you out.  We want you to be so stoked on TLS, so stoked you'll have permagrin.  So stoked that it actually makes other people smile.  People will stop you at work and say "Hey, I really dig how stoked you are!

If you're going to maliciously take over the world you should do it in style.  Starting to think Destro and Cobra Commander were frequent shoppers at some very exclusive French Couture clothiers.  Where else can you purchase a sweet, slim cut tight leather suit, personized with some very nuanced details?  Or killer super villain belts and buckles with menacing capes?  These dudes were on the inside.  They had a pension for bling.  So much, they melded their faces in gold boullions.

In case the Illustration was too big a tease, or not enough tease, or maybe just the right amount of tease.  Whatever wets your whistle, right?   Here are full reveals of some of the hottest SDCC releases.  Cybertron Megatron- Midnight Edition; blister packed with a resealable card.  This piece is epic.  It's as if you were hit in the face by an incandescent alien life form which looks unbelievably cool.  Megatron can harness the power of the sun.  In case you were wondering.  He's a bad dude.

Be there or be Sq.  - 6 Exclusives - wha, wha! 

 

Thurs. July 18th (first day)

Wha, What?!  Astro Zombie Bunny?!  That's right folks, we're getting gangrene on you.  Astro Zombie Bunny style.  Brains!  Brains!  Brains, I tell you!  Also some radioactive gooey green goop oozing from this poor zombified Bunny's skull.  He is delicious!  Edition of 300.  150 Goopy Zombies will be available at SDCC from The Loyal Subjects Booth #5645 Saturday, July 20th from 1-2p - coinciding with a signing by Joe Ledbetter.  A raffle will be held 1 hour before.
