Bromance alert: Here’s Scott Tolleson and Gary Ham. Their booth at Comic-Con was colorful and happy (despite Tolleson’s efforts to be a downer). They stocked their stall with a good variety of price-points, platforms and mediums (vinyl, resin, customized toys).
Tolleson had a huge amount of stuff: Along with his previous Tricycle Terrors and Doc Von Blocks, he had a new (green) edition of Otis and Otto, the debut of his Noselots plushes (for which his excitement was palpable and possibly contagious), an army of customized Androids, his Uncle Argh 5-inch Qee and two versions of his self-produced Chipster vinyl.
Well-designed toys plus bromance produce smiles on the faces of two angsty toy critics.
Click through to keep reading! You haven’t even seen Gary Ham’s stuff. There’s a new prototype, an animated gif and a tale of suspense and smackdown ahead!

Wooper Looper prototype by Gary Ham and Chauskoskis
Ham was honored with the Designer Toy Award for Best Self-Produced Toy for Hermees the Bat. Well, Gary is gearing up for another round of self-production. This time, he’s brought on Walter “Chauskoskis” Jacott to do the sculpt. The new character was on display in prototype form. His name is Wooper Looper. A name like that can only mean one thing: it’s animated gif time, holla!
DTA-winning Hermees the Bat by Gary Ham
Ham’s green bat, Hermees the Trickster, though recipient of aforementioned award, was also the subject of multiple scandals. I’ll have to save one for later, but the shorter scandal involves a thief attempting to steal Hermees right off the table…until he was chased down and schooled by schoolteacher, Kathy Tolleson. So awesome. Wish I could have seen it.
Guess who picked up the one on the left?
