In an effort to bolster the compaign, any backer can add additional sets to their pledge in FLESH, GREEN, ORANGE, and VIOLET! $20 per set, simply adjust your pledge and make a note of what additional sets you want on the survey at the end. No additional shipping if your pledge already includes toys, but please add $4 if you are adding sets to a pledge that does not include toys.
Nothing to lose and only toys to gain!
Nearly there! Thanks for the continued support!

The Kickstarter campaign for these little weirdos is live. Flesh and Green are up for grabs along with some other goodies and the opportunity to claim some future colorways.
The Run-A-Mucks Kickstarter will be launching soon! Up for grabs will be a classic flesh set and a Kickstarter exclusive green set. Stay tuned.
The store is open! Just look up and click the “STORE” button.
Trash Bag Bunch XL figures, stickers, pins, shirts, and Trash Bag Bunch series 2 mini figures are all available to order.
Pre-orders placed in the next couple weeks will go out with the first wave of shipping in April, and then there will be continuous shipping after that.
Trash Bag Bunch XL figures are on their way from the factory now—they should be shipping out to Kickstarter backers in a couple weeks.
Blank green, glow in the dark, and classic painted versions will be first. Exclusive versions will be a little later, and the premium painted versions will be last.
Here they are, all packaged and ready to go!
Here are some of the photos I have received from the factory documenting different stages of the production process. Most of the toys are finished and packaged at this stage and I’m arranging shipping to the US. They will soon be distributed and available for a wider sale.
I’ve worked closely with the factory to ensure quality control and color matching. They have done a brilliant job and have really given these toys the attention they deserve. It’s great to get these behind the scenes shots from the factory and to be able share some of them.
To all the friends, family, strangers, strangers who have become friends, and fellow toy fiends who backed the Trash Bag Bunch XL Kickstarter, I want to extend a very gracious “THANK YOU.” Thanks for the support, the trust that I would execute this, and the continuous positive feedback.
Here is just a small acknowledgment of all the people who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign in May-June 2018:

This is the Tenacious Toys exclusive BLUE MUCKOID, only available from Tenacious Toys. This Muckoid features an all-new color palette. The green, pink, and purple are all different shades from the classic version, and the blue body gives ol’ Mucky a whole new appearance. It’s a limited release, so stay up to date with Tenacious Toys on social media for ordering info! In the meantime, enjoy some photos of the new colorway:
Things are trucking right along, it’s time consuming and hard to keep pace with updates!
Some blank green and blank glow units arrived in time for Designer Con and they are beautiful.
It was great to have a presence at Dcon and show the toys to the world and also preview some upcoming prototypes.
Take a look at the Last Resort Toys booth:
I met a handful of Kickstarter backers, which was so nice, and was able to connect with many other talented artists. Such a good convention!
Production is moving along well and I'm starting to get some goodies in! I've got some photos from the factory here (please excuse some blurriness, I'll replace them once I get a chance to photograph the pins.)
The details and colors on these came out beautifully. These will be available at Designer Con 2018 and fulfillment of the pin reward tier from Kickstarter will also start in just a couple months!
Here are some cool photos from the factory. These are the wax copies used to make the metal molds. Once the factory has made their molds, all the vinyls can be pulled with the same details and no degradation to the mold itself.
As you can see, the waxes are beautiful and well polished with all the details transferred from the prototypes.
Last Resort Toys will be vending at Designer Con 2018 in Anaheim, CA November 16-18.
Wait...that means there should be some merch...right? Right! So what's going to be available? All the Trash Bag Bunch XL stickers, enamel pins, and t-shirts. And hopefully some actual Trash Bag Bunch XL vinyl toys! And some other stuff...wait and see.
If all goes swimmingly with the first parts of production, I might have some stock by November. These will probably be blanks (maybe some exclusive DCon 2018 customs) in "exclusive" packaging (because the regular packaging won't be ready yet).
Anything else? Yeah. Prototypes of some new toys. Maybe a few surprises, maybe a few announcements. I can't post it all here or what reason would you have to come check out the booth?
The Kickstarter was successfully funded on June 7th!
So what's next? Now I'm just working out details, figuring out numbers, and placing my order with factory. There is still a lot to do! I'm finalizing things for the shirts, stickers, and pins too.
And of course, I'm planning more toys!
Thanks to everyone who pledged to the Kickstarter, and/or shared the campaign. It was a lot of fun, and a ton of work, and there's still much to be done, but these toys are happening!
Half way through the campaign and over half the money pledged so far, but still a ways to go!
Please keep up the support, and thanks!

The Kickstarter will be live as soon as I hear back from Kickstarter! Don't worry, I'll post about that too.
I've spent DAYS building the Kickstarter and creating the reward tiers and doing math and whatnot--so much involved!
The final surprise I've been keeping up my sleeve is a re-release of the 12 Trash Bag Bunch mini figures only released in TBB series 2.
If you're a fan of this line--then you already know what these are. Time to complete that collection!
