Plastic Skateboarders Giveaway

UPDATE: Stephen won and has been contacted.



I'm a little amazed that there aren't a lot more plastic figurines for sale - - action figures have been priced out of impulse buy territory, and meanwhile every wargaming miniature kickstarter seems to raise tons of money.  Simple plastic minis based on God of Blades would have sold like gangbusters.

Anyway, Toy Boarders are very cool - - $6 plus shipping for a bag of 24, featuring 8 different poses.

I also have one bag to give away.  To win, simply comment on this post, and leave your email so I can contact you if you win.  USA only, one comment per person.

  16. Agreed, I've supported 3 or 4 Kickstarters for simple molded plastic toys, it is being done and done well. I think the days of assuming you know your idea will sell and going into production without croud-sourcing are coming to an end.

    I keep thinking of how awesome Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics line could be if they would just look more closely at this model.

    Anyhoo, would love a bag of these dudes.

  28. John, in regards to seeing more molded plastic figures, the old school (Star Wars riff-offs) TimMee Galaxy Laser Team figures are back in production. I bought a pack last fall--even comes with a couple of starfighters.

    I have a space yeti watching over my desk at this very moment!

    1. I've seen those. A little too expensive, I thought. Did you ever see the Aliens vs. Colonial Marines plastic figs? I bought a pack years ago.
