Task One's Pillaging Pop Culture Series!

Task One and Tenacious Toys have teamed up for an awesome release called Pillaging Pop Culture!


The blind-boxed custom hand painted figures will be $40.00 a piece or $100.00 for all 3 designs released in each wave. Purchasing 3 bind boxes in each wave guarantees that you will get one of each of the 3 figures in that wave. This puts each figure, if the full wave of 3 pieces is purchased, at a mere $33.33. Purchasing one figure means you will get a blind boxed figure. Tenacious Toys will also make available a limited number of full sets- the whole series of 18 characters plus the chase figure- at $600.00, which is a lot less than some consumers spend hunting down a full set of a production series. There will be a "free" chase figure (not part of the 18pc set) that will be rewarded to 2 lucky orders each Wave and automatically to anyone who purchases the full set. While the exact run size is not revealed, the series is limited.

 Release schedule for Pillaging Pop Culture:
 • March 10, 4PM EST: Wave 1 
 • March 24: Wave 2 
 • April 7: Wave 3 
 • April 21: Wave 4 
 • May 5: Wave 5 
 • May 19: Wave 6

The Chase Figure!


A note from Task One: By stretching the release out over a 12 week period it prolongs the fun, interest and awareness of this project both for the collector and the artists. As a collector, it increases your chances of receiving pieces you want and gives you time between paychecks to save up for the next release. As an artist, the space in between gives us time to fulfill orders and keeps the project in the blogs and media for a while, instead of having a nice build up to a release date, after which the project is forgotten. Task One would like to encourage other artists or people putting together a blind box series to try this method out, and feel free to adapt and add on your own ideas to the process. If you do please contact him and let him know how it turns out.
