The last two years I attended San Diego Comic Con, I carried on my iphone a virtual shopping list full of con exclusives and random merch I planned to hunt down and pay ridiculous amounts of money to obtain. I’d spend the lion’s share of my time at the con working my way back and forth across the show floor attempting to cross everything off it. I’d end up flying back home with two or three bags and a suitcase full of goodies, toys, comics, shirts and the general swag you collect over the grueling, yet enjoyable 4-5 day geek-fest.
This year however, I simplified. I had a single, solitary toy on my list. Just one. 1000Toys Synthetic Human Test Body which was being sold exclusively at the Bluefin booth. 1000Toys, for those not in the know, haven’t been cranking out figures very long. In fact, this is their first con exclusive and only their second figure to officially release. The first being the original Synthetic Human. I was excited and anxious to be a part of that relatively small group of people who could get their mitts on an awesome looking toy from a fairly young, promising company.
This little write up isn’t going to be so much a review as it’s a quick overview of a recent release that just arrived at my doorstep.
Ashley Wood’s WWR Square design is one of, if not the most iconic toy designs from the artist. As a supposed last hurrah to celebrate the love many have for the little fellah, 3A released a limited 60 min sale of this great 8 pack in what is meant to be the last time we see 3A/Ash post a classic WWR Square for sale.
Ash has changed his mind in the past, but if these really are the last of their kind.. they’re leaving on a pretty good note! The new designs are not tied to previously existing World War Robot factions as in the past.. ie: Iron Panda, Emergency, Medic, JEA.. but instead seem to be pulled from creative thin air, loosely tying into things most of us have no previous knowledge of. All in all, I love the set. It’s bright and colorful and it’s hard not to love that toothy grin.
Here’s a few more pics to enjoy! You can view the full gallery over on our facebook and flickr pages!
