Exclusive Unseen Series Five line of fashion dolls and creative action figures by Bleeding Edge™ are available at the New York Toy Fair. Trade show visitors have to get to the booth early to pick up newly released merchandise including t-shirts, books and dolls since these items sell out. There's also a opportunity for doll collectors to meet Steve Varner, the toy sculptor and doll designer himself.

Bleeding Edge™ creations tightens the cinch on those immersed the designer toy craze with the launch of their Series Five line of Begoths™ dolls, figures, plush toys and other novelties. These exclusive items, not yet obtainable in stores or online, will be available for viewing and pre-order at the American International Toy Fair, booth #5832 in the Javit’s Center, February 12 – 15.

Series Five Begoths™ collectible dolls promise to enthrall all within the gothic realm with two new lines of plush toys (Rebecca’s Realm™ and Minor Misfits™), seven-inch figures, 12-inch fashion dolls, novelty picture frames, 12” fashion dolls and 7” figures from the Princess Ai line. The Princess Ai line, co-created by Courtney Love, brings to life the musically talented fashion diva featured in Manga from Tokyopop, immortalizing her adventures – from her escape from her war-torn magical kingdom Ai-Land to her life on the streets of modern day Tokyo.

Additional merchandise to be released at the fair include resin picture frames, and two new must read books of dark delicacies “The Enigmatic ABC’s” and “Rebecca’s Realm.” There will also be custom t-shirts with ‘your favorite toons,’ and other Begoths™ characters brought to you thru Wish Licensing.

The Bleeding Edge booth will also offer enthused collectors other ways to satisfy their cravings for non-conformist goods including Rigormortis™ cosmetics and Tub-Tastrophes™ figurines. These figurines bring to life every child's worst fears associated with the bathtub drain. Rigormortis™ cosmetics offers three scents of Lip Embalm, seven types of sin makeup sets (to fit any sin), and a skull cosmetic set. Each are excellent gifts for the non-conformist in all of us.

As the gothic wave continues to envelop the nation, limited production Begoths™ collectables are selling out at alarming rates.
