The Dish on the upcoming SDCC and Hastings The Loyal Subjects Action Vinyls exclusives (TMNT, Transformers, Power Rangers)

The Loyal Subjects Official Facebook group  has revealed a ton of images of the upcoming Exclusives in their action vinyls lines. (CLICK THAT AND JOIN FOLKS, it’s full of great stuff and gets news first, it’s closed for those of us who don’t like public groups too!)

First up lets look at their pile of SDCC Loot (minus one turtle set)

Metalic Rita and Pink ranger, Yellow Constructicons, Buzzsaw and transparent frenzy, an opened package TF and 3 rangers, and not just the TMNT box set shown (that’s battle damaged) but another one too !

 

Winner of the SDCC stuff in my mind. May actually be my favorite exclusive from the entire show this year.

autobot06_transformersAMERICANFLAG02

The latest video is up on our youtube channel, check it out below!  I pull a loyal subjects Transformers blind box, and although I didn’t get the one I was hoping for, I was impressed. This was my first TF from the Loyal Subjects, would you like to see more? -Sam

 

Would you be interested in a Sightline (Gary Goggles) Vinyl (and why you should be if you are not)

goodbyegary

Gary Goggles Head was a vital member of the community of Joe fans. His work in Declassified allowed us to see images, and learn info we most likely never would have seen. More than just getting it out there, he brought “old guard” prototype collectors together with so many other types of fans that the community really transitioned into something entirely different than it was before him. His life was cut tragically short when his heart gave out while shoveling sno, due to an unknown heart condition. He left behind 3 kids, their mother, and a whole lot of dear friends.  His legacy in the community was so prolific that Hasbro named a figure to be released this year, Sightline, after him.  (You can hear more about Gary in our tribute episode to him HERE)

Drew Gaska photoshopped the following for us, since it came up in our recent podcast interview with Jonathan Cathey, CEO of the Loyal Subjects (Click Here for that full article and the audio), who was very willing to talk about and consider doing more modern Characters rather than just 80’s Joe and took particular note of the fan response to Sightline when announced at Joe con (a standing ovation… and a few people with moist eyes… okay at least me shedding a tear or two but I won’t rat anyone else out.

The first is more like the actual Sightline, figure (pictured below) but the second is has more character as a figure, and has Gary’s trademark arctic goggles.

If you would be interested in purchasing something like this in a future wave of Joe, PLEASE let The Loyal Subjects know on their facebook page or their official Facebook group. Jonathan assures me they have an ear out to their fans, and I believe him!

Even if you didn’t click the tribute podcast link above, the impact should be obvious.  Gary made a giant impact, and I think this connection Hasbro made with the fans was wonderful and a nice tribute to Gary.  Of all the Joe figures I would want in alternate style to have just a desk version, this would be the one. It has a great story behind it. (I am of course buying tons of these things, I mean one I’d even set on my work desk etc.)  The look is also bit more kid friendly, while not intended for kids, I’ve enjoyed my TMNT’s wtih my son, and I plan to do the same with future Joes. This would be a great way for Gary’s kids, for  all the kids who knew Gary to have a little piece of him, and a neat way to pass a story down to our kids.  -Sam

blueboardN

Check below for our first youtube blind box opening video ! The kiddo wasn’t going to let me edit podcasts like I would like to be doing, but it didn’t take much convincing to get him to open and look at a TMNT blind box by the Loyal Subjects. Keep your eyes peeled this week, should be able to drop multiple podcasts episodes! -Sam.
