If you've been visiting our Flickr gallery, you know we've been adding vinyl and resin art toy additions just as often as the Transformers/Marvel Comics/Movie/Comic Book related stuff! So why are we being dicks and not giving them their own articles? It's not for lack of love. The art toy community likes a slow reveal with teasers and specialization on the forums and 3 tons of foreplay before the big reveal. This generally means you'll see a full booth's offerings maybe 3 days before the show starts. I kid...but not very much. On the flip side, Toy2R have stepped up to scream "FUCK IT...WE WANT PEOPLE TO ACTUALLY BUY THESE THINGS!!" Very brave of them! They are rebels. Here's their shiny plastics list...
Scott Tolleson's Uncle Argh 5 Inch Mini Qee (debuts at SDCC) - "How would you like to spend the next several nights wondering if your crazy, out-of-work, bum uncle will shave your head while you sleep?" - Uncle Buck
We've all got them, some are great and some are just downright...well you know. Scott Tolleson offers up his relative to join the ranks of all our wacky uncles. Introducing the new 5" Mini Qee - Uncle Argh.
He's the uncle who hates visits.
The odd one without a care.
Run away if he comes calling,
Or he'll burn you with his stare!
Uncle Argh has been taken directly from Scott Tolleson's original custom 5" Mini Qee from the NYC♥QEE event from February. Due to popular demand, Toy2R is pleased to bring this custom to life as a limited edition production piece dropping this summer, just in time to get the party started! With an SRP of $28.00 each, you'll want to get your pre-orders in at your favorite designer toy haunt to insure you won't miss out on Uncle Argh's arrival. Just be sure to take cover when he arrives!
We will have a signing with Scott on Thursday at 1:00 in booth #601, and Scott will have additional pieces available at his booth (sorry no booth info as yet)
Voltaire's new 5 inch Deady "Big in Japan" Mini Qee (debut at SDCC with a limited qty available at our booth #601 - while supplies last.) - Voltaire's Deady character comes back to life in this new incarnation of the cuddly comic character. The newest Deady creation by famed poet, artist and singer Voltaire is prepared to hit the shores very soon. Taken from an original appearance of Deady in Voltaire's work, this figure includes an exclusive gaming code card that will allow online players of Adventure Quests Worlds to play the game with Deady tagging along for all the mayhem. With nearly 30,000 players online at any given time, retailers will want to place an order for this new Deady figure based on the speed of last year's 8" Deady Qee Bear sell-out, they won't last long.
With an SRP of $28.00 each - a case of 12 will make retailers happy as we have included three different versions of Deady for fans to collect.
Smash Tokyo Toys 5 Inch Mini Qee Atomic Beartank (most likely through October Toy's Booth #4838) - "Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil." Evil beware, cometh the hour...the hour of the leviathan...the age of the Atomic Beartank!
5 inch DIY White and DIY GID versions of David Horvath's Monster Bossy Bear - Bossy Bear, the demanding character from the mind of David Horvath, has transmutated into the 5” Strange Beast Bossy Bear or as witnesses have dubbed him – Monster Bossy Bear! With an SRP of $20, your chances of catching one is good but act fast as there have been rumors of multiple versi...ons as well as the Roseus (or Pink) version sighted.
Altering from his earlier form into a higher state – that of the Kaiju form – Bossy Bear is now more formidable than ever. As part of Toy2R’s scheduled releases for 2011, the Monster Bossy Bear Assortment will delight fans of both the classic form and new fans of his Kaiju inspired look.
Two versions will be released in the assortment – the Classic Blue and the Pink 'Cutie' Stomp edition. Fans should be on the look out for variant versions within the assortment as one can never be sure what mood Bossy will be in. Toy Tokyo will debut the Classic White and GID DIY Editions during SDCC. Rotofugi is currently offering an exclusive white DAY STOMP Edition while Tenacious Toys and Kidrobot are offering a black NIGHT STOMP Edition. This Saturday, Giant Robot will be featuring a signing event with David Horvath for the launch of the Monster Bossy Bear assortment.
Monster Bossy will be available at Toy Tokyo as well as a signing with David in booth #5437

NOTE: Reading this over, none of the items seem like ACTUAL SDCC exclusives, but with low numbers, this would be a prime opportunity to get the goods in person and assure your spot in history.
