One of the great things about making toys is being able to do projects that just *need* to be done. In our eyes, Chicago-based artist and comic book author Jeremy Tinder just *deserved* a set of toys. Jeremy's "Black Ghost Apple Factory" and "Cry Yourself to Sleep" books (published by Top Shelf) are purely charming, full of wonderful characters. With that in mind we set out almost two years ago to work with Jeremy on designing "Tinder Toys," small figures based on his quirky art. We're incredibly proud to (hopefully) be debuting the first three Tinder Toys at this year's SDCC. Why the hopefully? Well, these are on the way from our factory right now, so they may or may not arrive in time...though chances are we will have them there. smile From left to right we've got Clem, Rabburt and Boyger. All three were designed by Jeremy and sculpted by Josh Sutton at ERA Sculpture. Josh really captured Jeremy's style and we couldn't be happier with the final sculpts. We'll be debuting these mostly unpainted (Clem and Rabburt have painted eyes) all-white versions. Price is to be determined, but at 3-3.5 inches a piece, they won't break the bank. -From article by Squibbles Ink, Rotofugi and Tinder Toys 2011 see the article at http://rotofugi.com/home/template_permalink.asp?id=191
