announced earlier into the year that they would be partnering
up with Sideshow to handle all of their distribution. This
seems like a very smart move, allowing them a broader reach
for their product and freeing them up to concentrate on
other aspects of the business like cranking out killer maquettes!
As part of the arrangement, Tiki shared display space with
Sideshow at SDCC this year. This gives them better visibility
than the booth they had in year's past, that's for sure.
And to celebrate, they unveiled a few of their newest maquettes
due to ship soon: Dick Tracy (with three variant newspaper/
wrist TVs), Lassie (in color & BW), and the three stages
of Woody Woodpecker evolution.
They also announced the addition of The Tick to their Classic
Heroes line-up. Look for an in-depth article on Electric
Tiki here on AFI quite soon!
