AFJ-SDCC ’17 BEAST KINGDOM
By Jarrett Kruse
I was super-psyched for AFJ’s appointment with BEAST KINGDOM as we had been corresponding in the weeks leading up to SDCC ’17. Fortunately, I was given the tour of their booth by Wilford and his team that came all the way from Taiwan for the big event. I had known the EGG ATTACK line fairly well but my ears really started to perk up last month when word spread that they were making the foray into the 8-inches tall action figure market starting with the BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE figures. Boasting 30 movable ball-joints for crazy posing possibilities, these new figures are going to be a hot item after examining them closely.
It is all about quality with BEAST KINGDOM and value for your hard earned Junkie dollars. These pieces are finely crafted and the company has acquired A-List licenses like PIXAR, DISNEY, DC & MARVEL. We were even treated to an AFJ LIVE! session on Facebook where Wilford demonstrated the amazing AGE OF ULTRON IRON MAN that sports brilliant signature looking sculpts and amazing articulation with dazzling LED lights–it was a real treat to see how enthusiastic the BEAST KINGDOM staff was about their product. Expect big things from these gents when they start to aggressively expand their brand into the aforementioned 8-inch articulated action figures.
