Bluefin Distribution, a leader in delivering the best hobby and collectible products to the U.S. market, is pleased to announce their new partnership with vinyl figure innovators, The Loyal Subjects®. The new deal sees Bluefin as the exclusive distributor for all of The Loyal Subjects® product catalog both domestically and internationally.
With the new partnership, Bluefin adds a new category of collectibles in the form of highly articulated, nuanced ACTION VINYLS™ collectibles to its vast portfolio of amazing collectible items across Japanese and American pop culture. It directly serves Bluefin’s mission of delivering fans, dealers and distributors around the world the best the toy collectibles industry has to offer.
The Loyal Subjects® have signed major licenses with the likes of Hasbro™, Nickelodeon™ and Saban™ to produce uniquely stylized collectible products from some of the world’s most popular properties including TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS , MR. POTATO HEAD, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, MY LITTLE PONY and MORE! Their product lines consist of the very popular three inch blind box figures (which feature multiple points of articulation, accessories and other features such as lights and sounds), 5.5/8 inch collectible figures, keychains, apparel, skateboards, surfboards and more.
Each line has been meticulously designed by talented artists including Les Schettkoe and Joe Allard and crafted out of hard durometer vinyl to capture every miniscule detail. Given the high quality craftsmanship, cool styles and limited nature of their products (most notably the chase figures), their items have become exceedingly sought after by collectors.
When asked about the new partnership, Bluefin President, John Parker stated, “We are very excited to partner with The Loyal Subjects and offer our customers some really cool products they’ve never seen before. Fans love the “thrill of the hunt” when it comes to blind box figures and these TLS ACTION VINYLS™ take the category to a new level.”
Jonathan Cathey, Founder and CEO of The Loyal Subjects® said, “I couldn’t be more stoked to join forces with Bluefin. It’s a “Hey, you dipped my peanut butter in your chocolate!” “Hey, you dipped my chocolate in your peanut butter!” moment. Or that scene in ET where ET pronounces Elliot’s name for the first time and the two touch fingers, (except none of our fingers were glowing). Or the, “where have you been all my life!” moment. All kidding aside, Bluefin has amazing taste, the Staff is top notch – they understand our Brand and the relationships that we’ve created and the support group that proudly props our Brand up. Only big things to come and excited to build with this dynamic Company. The next few years are going to be bonkers and expect ONLY the best through all facets of the TLS personality; collectibles, features, innovation, quality, apparel and more.”
