Any suggestions? Questions??

I like the idea of Spaced figures even though I won't let myself spend my money on toys any more. I got a bit addicted. Honestly? 'Urban Vinyl' is so four years ago. I'd rather see something with a caricatured likeness and some smart detailing along the lines of Mezco's Scarface figures (which are real nice). That style lends itself well to capturing the spirit of the characters as opposed to, say the McFarlane method where an attempt at a realistic likeness of Chris Walken comes off the production line looking more like Steve Buscemi. You know what I mean?

At the end of the day though my toy-buying decisions were always down to the licence first and foremost and you've picked a good 'un.

The clothes you've picked for the concept art there are pretty bland, especially Daisy's. That could be anybody.

Top suggestion, whites. I vote for her "My Brain Hurts" t-shirt. happy.gif Plastic jewelry couldn't hurt, either.

Thanks for being pro-active on this, BTW, Jason. *thumbs up*

Fine point. It's a rare bird who looks so good in yellow. biggrin.gif

What should we stick Bisley in? Hicky, Hicky, Hicky? Tenderloin?

And don't tease us too long for the others...I'm dying to see the Marsha mock-up. (Deluxe 2-pack - includes the paper boy!)

They need actual expressions rather than characterless inoffensive smiles and blank stares. It's amazing how many toy companies mess that up. Compare Playmates' Series One Homer figure to their re-release Homer. No contest.

Wow. Fantastic. Great to see so much feedback already.

To give some background and address a few things right away....

I first put this 'plan' in motion almost a year ago, to set up a toy company and go after licenses, properties I think are cool, Spaced being the first. My initial contact with anyone connected to Spaced was around October of '04. Long story short, the go ahead to make the announcement at Comic Con was given last Thursday, I left for San Diego on Friday.

So, there was a period a while back where I had to hope for the best and assume I'd get a 'yes', and to plow through with designs, promotional materials, etc. All of which cost a bit, but nothing too crazy. When you get into prototypes, that's another story. Then a bit more substantial sums of money start to change hands. So without a firm commitment, I had to stick with the 2-D designs, and have something to present.

Now, as all of you know, the series isn't available on DVD over here, so I've converted several episodes to hand off to interested parties here that are working in tandem with me, including a very talented young man named Ching Lau who's doing the actual drawings (you should see his details/portraits of Daisy, wow). So in addition to some photos of the cast, he really has only had those episodes and my direction to go off of, and we've only been able to sit down together once in the past several months, due to both of our schedules. It was important to me, however, to make an announcement at Comic Con and get the ball rolling.

So I want to stress again, bear with me. What you're seeing so far is early days. These are going to be super fucking cool, and they're going to make just about everyone happy. Remember, I'm a fan as well, I don't want them to be shit.

Two other points. I didn't want to put anything too specific on any shirts just yet, for two reasons: any clearance issues that may come up with logos and such, and I wanted to get feedback from the cast and you lot before we locked anything in.

Secondly, the urban vinyl thing. Contrary to Whitey's opinion, it's actually still extremely popular, with new companies and product popping up all the time. It appeals to toy collectors, and especially non toy collectors who would normally be slightly embarrassed to buy such things. And, it's actually fairly cost effective. When you get into multi articulated figs (which would be great), every piece brings the cost up a bit. These will have about five points of articulation. But Whitey, I'm with you on the Mezco types figs. Believe me, if the other properties I want work out, that's exactly what I want to do. Spaced included down the road, if it flies.

Sorry that's so long winded, hope it helps. Keep the feedback coming!

Best to you all.

JL

Make sure Mike gets either the pink top (the rave outfit in general), or the tight blue jogging outfit. Or you could go with the Rough Ramblers approach.
