Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced that it will show several upcoming collectibles at Fall Toy Preview 2017, October 3-5 at the World Trade Center in the Dallas Market Center. In Room #8400, Cryptozoic will display prototypes of early 2018 releases such as Cryptkins, an original line of vinyl figures based on legendary creatures, and the Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman vinyl figure. In addition, it will showcase DC Pumps and DC Teekeez, two new lines of vinyl figures that are scheduled to be released later in 2017. Fall Toy Preview is the Toy Association’s annual show that brings together manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers to preview products, with a special focus on the following year’s holiday season.
“Fall Toy Preview is a great opportunity for us to give the toy industry a chance to check out the exciting collectibles we have coming out,” said Jamie Kiskis, VP of Marketing & Product Development at Cryptozoic Entertainment. “We’re gaining momentum with our existing brands, which is providing us a chance to build upon that success with innovative new lines of vinyl figures. 2018 is going to be a great year for fans of our collectibles products.”
Cryptkins are Cryptozoic’s first original series of vinyl figures and are inspired by various creatures that have been the subject of folklore and tabloid headlines for decades. These figures are each approximately 2.25-inches tall and include Nessie, Chupacabra, Cthulhu, Bigfoot, and more. There are 13 figures in all, with 2 of them being rare and 1 of them ultra-rare. Sculpted by Sam Greenwell, each figure comes packaged in a collectible, blind-reveal miniature crate.
Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman is a 7-inch vinyl figure that pays tribute to actress Lynda Carter’s iconic portrayal of the Amazonian princess turned Super Hero in the classic 1970s TV series. Designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg, the figure features the Wonder Woman logo from the TV show on the base and comes packaged in a display-worthy window box.
DC Teekeez are 2.75-inch vinyl figures that feature a distinctive wood-carved aesthetic inspired by tiki culture and iconic DC characters. The five figures include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker, and Harley Quinn, with each figure packaged inside a display-worthy window box. Designed by Mark Doublin and sculpted by Stephan Ehl, the figures are stackable, allowing collectors to create impressive displays.
DC Pumps are vinyl figures of miniature high-heeled shoes inspired by the costumes, props, and personalities of DC's favorite female Super Heroes and Super-Villains, including Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and Supergirl. Each shoe is approximately 2.25 inches tall, finished with high quality paint, and packaged inside a blind-reveal, high-fashion-style shoebox. There are nine distinct vinyl figures in the DC Pumps collection, plus two rare variants and one ultra rare variant.
