While there may be one or two of the limited edition vacuum-metalized Fugitoid figures on display at the San Diego Comicon this week, sadly, it appears that there will be none available for sale there. Fans who want one of these shiny robots will have to wait a little bit longer.
However, progress is being made, and here are a few photos to prove it.
What you see here is one of several samples that we received from Playmates a few days ago -- not many, but enough so that Mike Dooney, Dan Berger, Eric Talbot, Jim Lawson, and my brother Bruce each now possess one of these beauties.
I'm happy that Playmates revised their packaging plan, which was originally to just package each 'Toid in a plastic bag. Instead, they have wisely opted for that bag PLUS a molded two-piece plastic "cradle" that offers much better protection for the figure. Thanks, dudes! -- PL
