NYCC 2011: Greg and Fake

New to the whole designer toy scene, and previewed over HERE a little while back artists Greg and Fake had on display their awesome assortment of hand drawn art... all of which was done on cardboard, and was super stylized! They also had up on display/sale their new resin cat figure... the Rick Ross "Necklace Man" Plastic Cat which came fully packaged for $10 a pop... in a multitude of colors as well! It was really great to meet these super talented artists, and I look forward to seeing more from them in the very near future! Hit the jump for more pics!

NYCC 2011: Fugitive Toys

Last time we spotted Nelson, owner of Fugitive Toys, was at SDCC 2011... and just like his booth there, the one he had setup during NYCC was popping off every time I walked by! He not only had designer toys and vinyl, but he mixed it up with more commonly found goods at toy stores giving all who stopped by many options to pick and choose whatever they wanted to buy... and buy they did! Fugitive Toys also had some really nice display cases of toys that had just been released... a great visual for passers-by! It was great to see the enthusisiam that this booth always had... spreading toy joy is a beautiful thing :-) Hit the jump for more pictures of Fugitive Toys booth!

NYCC 2011: Erick Scarecrow of ESC Toys

Every year I am always so intrigued with he booth that Erick Scarecrow of ESC Toys sets up as he has soooooo many releases, some of which are announced a few days before the convention... but he holds off a ton to be surprises for all con goers! This was totally the case this year as Erick brought everything but the kitchen sink to show off (maybe he had it in the back actually) and I gotta say that having each cabinet filled with his figures, all lit up nice and good... wow did they all look fantastic! Whether it was resin or vinyl each piece had it's own unique characteristic... making it no wonder why they are so sought after! Get ready ESC Toy fans, the end of this year is going to be epic and 2012 shows no signs of slowing down! Hit the jump for some close ups of all the figures! It was a pleasure to see your smiling face once again Erick and keep bringing the heat :-)
