Vinyl Toys have become a very highly collectable nowadays. From Kidrobot to Muttpop, there have been many companies that have jumped in to the industry. Even some of the major brands have lend their licenses to these companies. The Simpsons, Futurama and Family guy have joined them and even their blind boxes. Now Bethesda’s games have joined with Symiote Studios to let their famous characters be done in vinyl. I am looking forward to these toys, if done well they could become a collectable for any video gamer. Here is the press release below.
