The Loyal Subjects announces 2018 mini-figure lineup at NY Toy Fair

The Loyal Subjects (TLS)is bringing its World Without Borders to the Big Apple during the upcoming annual North American International Toy Fair February 17-20. The company will preview its exciting 2018 product line-up in booth #6665, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Not all collectible figures are treated equal, unless they’re from TLS. The company creates collectible three and a quarter inch (3.25”) stylized Action Vinyls (AV), highly detailed, poseable figures that are like nothing else on the market. Action Vinyls lines feature fine-tuned elements, including 12 points of articulation – making them hyper-poseable – plus great sculpt and paint details. AV figures include accessories and collector cards, and many AV lines are packaged in a blind box format with rare chase figures, all for an approximate retail price of $12.99 each. Small figures that PLAY BIG!

All this attention to detail with Action Vinyls styling enables deeper play experiences with dynamic interaction among figures from different lines. In the TLS Universe it makes perfect sense for Skeletor to take on the Red Ranger or have Raphael (TMNT) battle Vegeta – it’s action figures in “Super Smash Bros” style! Having a uniform size and style plus interchangeable accessories across AV lines makes the worlds blend seamlessly.

“The uniqueness of our Action Vinyls is that there are no borders within the TLS Universe. We give the controls back to the collector, so they’re in charge of their own story, their own army building/capture the flag campaign. The power of TLS Action Vinyls are the story telling capabilities inherent in a highly detailed, poseable collectible. We provide that little spark to the collector’s imagination and watch that fire ignite when the collectors go knee deep into their stories. It’s magical!,” noted Jonathan Cathey, The Loyal Subjects Founder/CEO and President. “We are driven by consumer passion. We hear time-and-time again that The Loyal Subjects collectibles are drivers for a more enhanced, fulfilled customer experience. It’s like the “Indian in the Cupboard” – our figures spring to life! Collectors become their own screenwriters, producers, actors, and directors of their own show and that’s really powerful!”

The Loyal Subjects is an emerging brand that is thriving at big box retailers, such as Walmart and Target, and is also formidable on specialty store shelves, including Hot Topic, GameStop, and Toys“R”Us. The company has sold more than 2MM Action Vinyls collectible figures since its first AV release in 2012. TLS has enjoyed rapid expansion over the past couple of years as it moved to the “main stage,” propelled by a growing base of passionate collectors who are known to drive hundreds of miles to visit many stores in order to load up on TLS AV figures.

The 2018 Action Vinyls product line-up from The Loyal Subjects include:
· Mega Man: Available now at mass market and specialty retail locations
· ThunderCats: Available now at mass market and specialty retail locations
· Horror: featuring characters from It, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Exorcist: Available May 2018
· Aliens: Available May 2018
· Predator 2: Available June 2018
· WWE: Available June 2018
· Game of Thrones: Available July 2018
· Gudetama: Available July 2018
· Nickelodeon ‘90s Splat!: Available July 2018
· Ghostbusters: Available September 2018
· One Punch Man: Available November 2018
· Naruto: Available November 2018

TLS pays homage to the collector base by offering branded scarcity items and “Easter eggs.” Club 28™ is a very limited edition of 28 figures included in an AV line! Aftermarket values on a single Club 28 figure can swell into thousands of dollars. These scarce products are stamped with a “28” to commemorate the edition. Additionally, in its retailer-exclusive editions of each AV line, the company produces a single Gold figure stamped with the retailer name (i.e. Walmart’s Gold figure has a “WM” stamp, Hot Topic “HT”, Toys”R”Us “TRU”, Target “TG”). These figures are a collector’s “Holy Grail,” with some Gold figures trading between collectors for upwards of $5,000.

Expect more coverage of TLS later this week after we visit their booth during NY Toy Fair 2018!

Playmobil “Ghostbusters 2” Peter Venkman – figure review

Who ya’ gonna call? Playmobil, as they just released their new line of figures based on Ghostbusters 2. This new series includes the four boys in grey, and is focused purely on mini-figures and no vehicles or playsets. It also integrates some new app play with their free Playmogram app that projects a holographic image of a ghost via your phone. Is this line worth checking out? Watch our review to find out!

Ghostbusters 101: EVERYONE Answers the Call – The “Answer the Call” crew work alongside the original ‘busters in New Graphic Novel Collection

Dohhh-Reyyy-Egonnnnnnn – all the Ghostbusters are back in Ghostbusters 101: Everyone Answers the Call, a trade collection of all six issues now available for purchase!

After making their cinematic debut last summer, the latest iteration of Ghostbusters answered a new call in 2017 – appearing for the first time alongside the original Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters 101, resulting in a sold out debut due to overwhelming demand.

In this new adventure, the ghostbusting team of Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan, and Gilbert cross paths with Venkman, Stantz, Zeddemore, and Spengler, set in the long-running IDW continuity from the fan-favorite, critically-acclaimed, and prolific Ghostbusters comics creative team of Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado who have collaborated on the IDW comics for the past five years. In addition, the new collection also features a special introduction by director Paul Feig.

Ivan Reitman, Co-founder of Ghost Corps, in addition to director of the original films, said about the comic book event series, “I’ve always wanted to meld the two worlds. I think it’s important for the future that we bring it back into a single universe.”

When an inter-dimensional mishap merges together the Ghostbusters’ universe with that of the new crew of paranormal police, the fate of two dimensions (maybe more?!) hangs in the balance. Can these distinctly different teams come together to repel the greatest supernatural challenge any of them have ever faced? They’re going to have to find a way if there’s any hope for survival. Prepare for mass hysteria of the dogs and cats living together variety, because this time everyone… ANSWERS THE CALL!

Ghostbusters 101: Everyone Answers the Call is in comic shops and bookstores now.

Ghostbusters Event Comic Series Sees Every Ghostbuster Cross Over This March

A wise man once said, “don’t cross the streams!” Guess he wasn’t counting on this! Ghostbusters: Crossing Over is the massive 8-issue event series IDW Publishing’s line of Ghostbusters comics have been leading up to which features the original Ghostbusters, the “Answer the Call” crew, and everyone in between from the world of animation and video games. This crossover has them ALL!

Just as exciting as seeing all of these Ghostbusters form the ultimate team-up, this series also sees the return of the fan-favorite creative team of Erik Burnham, Dan Schoening, and Luis Antonio Delgado!

“This story has something for everyone who has ever loved an iteration of the Ghostbusters,” said series writer Burnham. “The Prime team from the original movies? There. The Real Ghostbusters? Present. The Extreme team? Accounted for. Not to mention the characters from the video games, the 2016 movie, and the originals we’ve created for the comics! If you don’t like one character, don’t worry, we have others! BUNCHES of others.”

“The biggest challenges from an artistic perspective is emulating the styles of the Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, Sanctum of Slime and any other teams that may pop up,” said series artist Schoening. “Not only do we want to honor the distinct look of the characters, but also the backgrounds and ghouls. Luckily and gratefully, we have already had a chance to play with many of those characters in previous books.”

For a while now, the original Ghostbusters have had access to an interdimensional portal that has given them all-new ways to research the paranormal and consult with Ghostbusters throughout the multiverse. But when it unleashes the contents of the Ghostbusters’ Containment Unit, it’s going to take a lot of Ghostbusters to recapture all the ghosts!

Who you gonna call? EVERYONE!

Ghostbusters: Crossing Over #1 arrives this March with covers by Joe Quinones, Dan Schoening, and Tim Lattie.
