Officially Launches

Today, A Little Bit on the Awesome Side, AKA, evolves and expands. While Albotas has been covering the designer toy scene since its inception and predates many of today’s popular designer toy blogs, our priorities have shifted based on our fans’ and readers’ feedback. As hardcore fans of the scene, we’re not willing to just drop that topic, so we’re spinning off the designer toy stuff into a new site, Blindboxed, where we can have a more dedicated and focused set of content for all the vinyl, resin, and plush fans out there. With the majority agreeing it’s an eye-drawing domain, if you’re in need of an attention catching domain name, you may want to run through a few different domain name generators to see if you can settle on one you like the look and sound of.

What Can I Expect from Blindboxed?

We will be posting daily updates on industry news, upcoming releases, new reveals, and the latest work from our favorite artists and designers. As you might have seen, we’ve been filling up the site with pre-launch content already.

We’ll also be posting plenty of original content, such as artist interviews, DIY tips and tricks from established designers and customizing pros, event coverage, toy reviews, and more.

Finally, we’ll keep you on your toes with cool surprises. Keep an eye out for a special Blindboxed launch celebration sponsored by some of our awesome designer toy friends and artists.
