Tested Interviews Bigshot Toyworks

by Lambert Varias

You may not be familiar with Bigshot Toyworks, but chances are you’ve come across a collectible that they’ve had a hand in creating. Tested visited their booth at New York Comic Con to speak with the agency’s Creative Lead Klim Kozinevich.

Using two of the action figures they helped design and develop – Sideshow Collectibles’ Jim Raynor and Mondo’s Iron Giant – Klim reminds us that at the $300 and up price point, quality is king. They work hard to ensure that customers get both a character’s essence and a figure’s articulation, which are more often than not at odds at each other.

I’m really intrigued by Klim’s implication that the tooling for Raynor – and deluxe figures in general – is crazy expensive. I wonder if they have a deal with the factory to pay that off over a long period of time or if they reuse the components to get their money’s worth.
