One of the most exciting booths we were able to check out at Toy Fair 2014 belonged to Kidrobot, producer of designer collectibles and venerable Comic-Con exclusive exhibitor. The company was showing off its 2014 retail offerings, which included a treasure trove of licenses every SDCC attendee would salivate over: Futurama, The Simpsons, CAPCOM, and now Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel and DC. But what really got us excited wasn’t just what they were showing, but what they were talking about in terms of their big plans for this year’s SDCC.We spoke with Allen Richardson, Director of Product & Marketing at Kidrobot, about what we can expect at San Diego this July.
And when we were making our short list of booths to visit during Toy Fair 2014, Funko was at the top. The company’s line of licensed Pop! Vinyls have always been a big hit with our readers and Comic-Con attendees, and the addition of Super7’s ReAction line made Funko hotter than ever. We were also able to chat with Super7’s owner, Brian Flynn, on how the ReAction line came to be, what the partnership with Funko might bring to the line, and – most importantly – what SDCC exclusives we’ll be able to get our hands on this year.
Check out both of these interviews on this special Toy Fair 2014 SDConCast.
