Pulling some TLS Blind Boxes, then talking about them.

joints

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m a huge fan of The Loyal Subjects and TMNT is a a shared interest between me and my son. This time the little guy was in trouble, so I pulled and discussed two blind boxes by myself. Enjoy in the video below. If you dig what you see, keep reading below the video!

I became a big fan of the TLS figures after checking one out when interviewing their CEO for the Nerdrahtio Podcast.  You can head straight to their store here to dig into their upcoming wave 2  or if you wish you could use my amazon affiliate link to grab some wave 1 boxes on Amazon view the link below. This is the first time I have put up an amazon affiliate link, and want you to know that yes, If a purchase is made I get a small “bird dog” fee that could add up, and help me pay for the site’s hosting, give away items etc.

The Loyal Subjects Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series 1 Figure

Examining the NEWLY REVEALED Loyal Subjects toys (G.I.Joe, TMNT, MOTU, How to train your dragon)

blueboardNPART 1: The Loyal Subjects has become one of my favorite companies and that’s probably obvious by now! The latest batch of new images has me excited. The black Friday sale means an amazing Pre-Sale price, 40% off of these items that were just revealed, and most of them are must buy’s for me! Some of them I know I will have to get more than one of! Where do I start?  Brand by Brand, Pic by Pic, I wanted to provide some commentary on each image!

Glow in the Dark He-Man makes the silver become Glow in the Dark. The Power Sword will look great pointing towards the sky glowing in a dark room. It also features mini comic inspired Axe and Shield combo. This means you get to have your He-man how you want him ! Mine will probably go Sword and Board style, like a rpg tank.

Those eyes look like creepy as heck. I’m looking forward to seeing how well these translate into the paint masks used on the factory produced figures.  They really remind me of something from Zelda, like those pesky statues with an eye that shoot lasers at poor Link.

Joe Allard let us know that the plan is to go with Orange glow in the dark for this one. His design his awesome and I think a new GID color is a perfect way to spice this fig up! (although the green face would look good in traditional GID too.)

My fav out of the Masters of the Universe online exclusives (note: all single carded) would be:

podcast 015: Interview w/ Toy Designer Joe Allard MOTU/TMNT/G.I.Joe and more for TLS/MONDO/Sideshow and more!ndo and sideshow

In the latest episode of the Nerdrahtio podcast we discuss Joe’s past work with Sideshow (including an unreleased pimp daddy Destro) Mondo (, the1/6 scale turtles)  and his ongoing work on The Loyal Subjects action vinyl lines.

You can listen via the embedded player below   or find us on Stitcher and Itunes using the drop down menu above. Be sure to keep scrolling down to find links to our image galleries as well as some text notes from the interview.

shoutouts from this episode were: Springboro Hobby and Action Figure Fanatics.

text notes:

Clutch was revealed via Nerdrahtio on time while I was behind on editing,this podcast should have come along with it. Expected to be open window boxed or classic closed box , but obviously won’t be a blind box.

Want to get a non chase Baroness?  Will red or blue do ?

No official announcements, but keep an ear out for Thundercats as it is a very strong possibility. (Update, thundercats ARE happening!)

Due to licensing TLS does not have the rights to do vehicles for TMNT and it’s not likely they can do playsets either. Tell playmates you want them to be allowed to!

Upcoming figs are designed to be workable with their vehicles and animals, and while it may not be true for the turtles you should be able to get a Joe on battlecat or he-man in your vamp.

Power Ranger wave 2 will still be MMPR, still working on how to get the individual zords to combine!

BONUS UPDATE: Jonathan Cathey has confirmed Street Fighter will have knee articulation and “be like Joe”

Hot Topic interviews Jonathan Cathey of the Loyal Subjects #tlsarmy #stayloyal

blueboardNWe interviewed him awhile back HERE but Hot Topic has a short video interview you should check out below. It has some great clips from their Transformers vs. Joe webisodes.

I can honestly say that Jonathan is legit. The company gives artists a lot of credit, he shares the credit, brags on others, lifts others up rather than puts them down, owns his mistakes, listens to fans, and clearly has passion. I have a couple of favorite small companies out there, but it’s very easy to root for TLS.
