As previously announced HERE, the first Best Fiends X Kidrobot Figures which Includes Best Fiends’ Slug Characters from one of the most addictive mobile games. I personally have been infected by the addiction by this game, thanks to KR! Anyway Kidrobot, the premier creator and dealer of limited edition art toys, and Seriously, a mobile entertainment start-up, today announced that they will debut their collectible Best FiendsTM branded vinyl at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2015. This marks Kidrobot’s first creation of products for a mobile game and Seriously’s first expansion into physical toys as they build out a global entertainment franchise.
Looking at these production Slugs they do look exact replicas from the game and KR have done a stella job in the transition from Game to Vinyl figure.
I am personally stuck on level 70 and have been for a good few weeks right now, lord help me pass this STAGE! I really hope they bring our the rest of the Best Fiends characters as it would be sad that they won’t be joined with these dam Slugs.
In addition to the premiere of the vinyl figures, Best Fiends will have a presence at Kidrobot’s booth with a full takeover on Saturday, July 11th from 9:00 am until noon. During this time, fans will have a chance to win special prizes including a SDCC limited edition Best Fiends premium screen print, as well as meet the lead character artist for Best Fiends, Miguel Francisco.
Further, to support the launch of the products, Best Fiends will release a game update which will introduce the super rare Best Fiends X Kidrobot “Labbit” fiend. The products will be featured in videos from some of the world’s biggest YouTube stars such as EvanYouTube, ToyBoxCollectibles and FGTeev.
