SDCC 2015: October Toys Attack Comic-Con with Skeleton Warriors & More
Some companies bring hordes of new, exclusive toys to sell at San Diego Comic-Con...and that's awesome. Some bring a straight up artistic approach to the show and create hand painted plastics you can't find anywhere else and will never see again...and that's cool too. October Toys always makes sure their booth space reflects their kick ass attitude and presents a sampling of everything they've been working on all year, with plenty of those projects available to take home, even if you missed out on a killer Kickstarter like SKELETON WARRIORS!!! Now's your chance to snap up one of the best new toys of the year and shake hands with the fine folks who make dreams come true. Bony, awesome, retro cartoon dreams. My dreams.
