SubUrban Vinyl x Tenacious Toys x TLS x Hasbro...
As action figure collectors, many of us don't necessarily have an appreciation for the vinyl collectible crowd, but if The Loyal Subjects have taught us anything, it's that there are a wealth of collectible opportunities beyond just action figures. What they've done with vinyl figures for the G.I. Joe brand is pretty impressive (see HERE), and now these G.I. Joe vinyl figures are being celebrated in a G.I. Joe Custom Show on May 31st in Waldwick, New Jersey.
Hosted by Suburban Vinyl with Tenacious Toys and representatives from The Loyal Subjects in attendance, the G.I. Joe Custom Show promises to have Hasbro reps present as well, and sounds like a fantastic opportunity to talk to some of these incredible designers and get perspective on the vinyl figure market.
All of the details can be found below:
