Resin Is King Series 2

What's this?  For me it's the chance to mingle with prime talent & skill, osmosis some of that magic, moonwalk as a resin devouring caterpillar, & blossom into a resin crapping butterfly. 

Alas Benny Kline of the illustrious Tenacious Toys explains it like no other.  Thank you Benny Kline, Dead Hand Toys, & Golden Ticket Eric Nocella Diaz.

Tenacious Toys in conjunction with Dead Hand Toys announces Resin is King
Series 2: a blind-boxed resin mini figure series featuring the sculptural
resin work of 16 artists! Each artist was asked to develop a new sub-3"
resin sculpt and submit 10 pieces to the series using that sculpt. With
160 pieces in Series 2, this promises to be a much bigger release than
Series 1.

We even worked with our good friend Lisa at Kidrobot: the KRNY store will
host the Resin is King Series 2 release party on October 4th from 6-8pm!
Many of the artists will be there in person to sign their pieces, and
there will be exclusive and highly-limited prints by some of the artists
available for purchase. Blind boxes and full, sealed 16-pieces cases/sets
of the RIKS2 BBs will also be available, and we'll be hiding a Golden
Ticket in one of those blind boxes that will get the lucky winner a sweet
prize from Argonaut Resins! On October 5th, any leftover Resin is King
Series 2 blind boxes will be put up for sale online at


The idea for the Resin is King blind box series was born out of an
interest in artisanal resin collectibles. Brian Ahlbeck (Dead Hand Toys)
and I decided last year that we wanted to shine a light on the top-level
craftsmanship and creativity of resin figures and the artists that make
them. We made a few phone calls and Resin is King Series 1 was born. Now
for Series 2, we've expanded to reflect the wide variety of resin figures
being produced day in and day out. We're always really excited as we
prepare for these releases because every single WIP shot that rolls in is
a brand-new sculpt! We hope you dig these resin figures as much as we do.
