NYCC 2022: Handmade By Robots Pushes the Cuteness Boundaries

NYCC 2022 Handmade By Robots Vinyl Figures 12

They've got visible stitching, but they aren't stitched. They've got squishy-looking bodies, but they remain squishless! They've got little buttons for eyes and yet, IT'S ALL AN ILLUSION!! Everything about "Handmade By Robots" adorable creations screams "craft project", but it's all just a super clever art style used to make vinyl pop culture figures that no one ever thought of before. ..well..except for Sack Boy. Since we first spotted them at a Toy Fair booth many years ago, the company has grown into its own and boasts a wide array of characters you'd never think of making cute..from Robocop to Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs. Amazing. Check out everything Meghan Lee saw at their booth at New York Comic Con...

NYCC 2022: Playmobil Shows Naruto, A-Team & New Star Trek

Playmobil has been hitting it out of the park with their licensed toy lines re-imagined in the signature art style of the Plamobilian Peoples. For me, the two highest points have been Ghostbusters and Scooby-Doo, which lent themselves exceptionally well to the redesign. Ghostbusters in particular had so much potential that I hope the crew will go back to the license and explore the Real Ghostbusters cartoon universe and their endless legions of ghosts, demons, and unforgettable legendary nightmares. IT'S ON MY WISH LIST! While these items are not on the schedule (so far), we did get a look at what's to come in the next few months at New York Comic Con 2022.

NYCC 2022 Marvel Legends Ghostrider Engine of Vengeance 008
New York Comic Con is in full swing as we speak, with the largest geek-fest on the East Coast finding its sea legs in a post-Covid-lockdown world. While the vibe is said to be significantly different, the enthusiasm of fans hungry to celebrate their fandoms and visit with long-missed friends is evident in every corner of the massive halls. One such missed brother is Matt Booker of the UK based, who sent in these pictures of the latest Hasbro Pulse funding project known as GHOST RIDER: ENGINE OF VENGEANCE. Since the project's launch, Hasbro has added the hellish fiend Mephisto and the Goblin Queen action figures to sweeten the pot. Check out the project details...
