The corner booth at DesignerCon that housed Scott Tolleson, Lana Crooks, and Carson Catlin had a eye-catching combination of plushes and figures, both original and customized. It also had several tantalizing con-exclusives available for purchase to attendees. Scott’s Kookie Glo Good (seen in the header) was a special glow-in-the-dark version of his Kookie No Good vinyl toy. Completing the lifecycle of the Deadbeet plush, an artist collaboration between Lana and Scott, is the Beetling, exclusive to DesignerCon.
While Carson did not have an exclusive for sale, his custom figures more than made up for it. He also had blind boxes of some of his Micro-Munny figures. There were even some extra prizes involved, depending on what figure was in your box. It was a really clever idea.
The DesignerCon exclusive Kookie Glo Good can light up a room with his grumpy luminance. The latest edition of the fortune cookie sofubi from Scott Tolleson and De Korner is limited to 30 pieces and will be available at both Scott’s [#301] and DeKorner’s booths [#822] for $35.
Three powerhouses in the toy game are working together for this special pre-order made-to-order release! Super7, DKE, and Scott Wilkowski are excited to bring to you the 4” Infected Halloween Dokuwashi, which features Brian Flynn’s Dokuwashi figure in a orange translucent resin with Scott’s signature skeleton in a GID resin….
Scott “Toy Guru” Neitlich, the de facto face of Matty Collector (not to be confused with the mascot), has announced his resignation from Mattel in a lengthy interview with AFI. Neitlich is announced as leaving his dream job at Mattel for a dream job at an unspecified toy company. (Hey Scott, is there room for one more over there?).
Neitlich worked for Mattel for over nine years and was instrumental in the founding of Mattel’s Matty Collector imprint, in addition to having been an influential (and visible) figure in the industry. Although Neitlich has been mum on details pertaining to his new job, he’s revealed that he may be functioning in a similar capacity at the new company and will continue to attend conventions, etc, in addition to keeping the name “Toy Guru” (and also the name “Scott Neitlich”).
Neitlich has specified that his departure won’t change the Masters of the Universe line-up for 2015 (as he was working on 2016 at the time) and says that you can blame him for anything you don’t like in 2015. In many ways, this represents the end of an era for Mattel as both the long-running Masters of the Universe line is wrapping up at around the same time as its immensely popular brand manager is leaving. While it’s unclear what the future holds for Matty Collector (Neitlich was unsure of who might replace him), this could be something really cool for the toy industry. Will we see another major company run a new fan-centric website? Could a lesser-known company rise to greatness? Will Neitlich make the mistake of working for JazWares? Only time (but mostly Neitlich) can tell.
