    The 4th AnnualDesigner Toy Awards

    The quality of being cleverly inventive or resourceful has

    transcended through traditional mediums and can be found

    in non-traditional products – including toys. Designer toys

    have been a growing form of expression and creative outlet

    for artists. The Designer Toy Awards celebrate the communityof artists that are at the forefront of this trendsetting

    industry. The 2014 award ceremony recognized the best of the

    industry’s artists, designers and brands, as well as honored

    those involved in championing Designer Toys throughout the

    world. With over 700 entries placed for consideration, the

    Designer Toy Award's Nomination Committee — comprised of

    over two dozen industry professionals — were tasked with

    selecting six nominees for each category.

    We want to congratulate the 2014 Designer Toy Award

    winners and encourage everyone to support the artists

    and brands that have dedicated their time to a pursuit

    of designer excellence.

    Aaron Moreno established his brand ‘Retroband‘ for one reason – to make the toys he wished

    he had when growing up. An example of artistic DIY fandom that would be close to many a

    pop culturalist’s heart.

    What sets Aaron and ‘Retroband’ apart from other players in the scene is perfect execution in all

    aspects: figure design, figure creation, artwork, card-backs, and packaging. This commitment

    to perfection has caught the eyes of fans worldwide, leading to ‘Retroband’ figuresselling out within a day or two of release.

    Spending most of the 90's traveling the globe as a muralist and theatrical designer, Jason joined

    MTV's Special Events department in 1997 as a freelance designer. Jason helped design

    and create stage sets, props, and custom artwork for MTV Networks live events and trade

    productions worldwide. Jason's most recognizable contributions were his custom trophies created

    for MTV's "Rock-n-Jock" series and "TRL Awards" televised events.

    This custom 10-inch vinyl Labbit is hand painted and the stems are real bamboo!

    The glow-in-the-dark figure set includes three characters – Ruth, Void, and Omen –

    as they paddle in a rowboat across a black sea, lit only by their illuminated features.

    The boat also includes smaller Coarse cubes inside, and measures 16” x 8.5” x 11”.

    The Passage By: COARSE Toys



    Founded in 2001 as a magazine devoted to the obsessive-compulsive world

    of Japanese toy collecting, Super7 embarked on a mission to become the

    premiere outlet for information and reference for the obscure oddities of

    the toy universe. The success of the magazine immediately led to Super7collaborating with Japanese toy manufacturers to create exclusive toys

    and various special editions, evolving over time to Super7 designing and

    manufacturing its own collectible toys.

    Super7’s philosophy is to make products that the founders would want,

    resulting in Super7’s products being recognized by fans as original, unique,

    and most of all genuine. www.

    “Star Wars on the Betamax was the gateway to my

    Geekdome. At age six, I was already hooked. The pencil

    was my weapon of choice as I began to draw my favorite

    characters, illustration quickly became a lifestyle. As an

    adult, not much has changed. My passion for illustration

    and design have led me down my current path, where I

    met Chaz Gray, Obi Wan Kenobi and Co-Founder of Geek

    Fuel. Thanks to Chaz and the entire team at Geek Fuel, I am

    We are proud to present a first look

    inside THE VALIANT #1–the FIRST

    ISSUE of a new four-part mega series

    format beginning in December 2014

    from New York Times best-selling

    writers Jeff Lemire (Green Arrow,

    Animal Man) Matt Kindt (RAI, UNITY,

    Mind MGMT), and Eisner

    Award-winning artist Paolo

    Rivera (Daredevil).

    A battle ten millennia in the making

    is about to begin with the Eternal

    Warrior, yet again taking up the

    charge of protecting Earth againstgreat peril and a quite familar foe.

    A master of countless weapons and

    long forgotten martial arts, he is

    guided by the Geomancers – those

    who speak for the Earth. During his

    long watch, the Eternal Warrior has

    failed three times. Each time, a

    Geomancer was killed…and a newdark age for humanity began. Each

    time, he was unable to stop The

    Immortal Enemy, a monstrous force

    of nature. This civilization killer has

    lead waste to countless numbers of

    people over the course of time.

    A horror that appears differentlyeach time it arrives…and whose

    seemingly only purpose is to bring

    disorder and darkness to the world.

    Now, the time has come for The

    Immortal Enemy to return once

    more. But, this time, the Eternal

    Warrior will be ready.

    This time, he has a force greater

    than any single warrior. This time,

    he has…THE VALIANT.

    The entirely self-contained, reader

    friendly comic event spotlights

    a redesigned format, which is easier

    for newer Valiant fans to fall in love

    with. And what a smorgasbord they

    will have to choose from between

    the folds of this mamoth installment.

    We can’t wait to add all four issues

    of this mega series to our already

    overflowing Valiant collection.If you haven’t taken the time to

    get to know the Valiant canon this

    will definitely be the comic that gets

    you hooked.
