Numskull launches new TUBBZ collectables and its a pop-culture licensing dream

Numskull Designs is answering the call of the geek movement with the launch of a new, multi-licensed series of collectable, cosplaying duck figurines.

Yes, it’s a sign of the times and it doesn’t really get much nerdier than this as Numskulls joins the thriving collectables scene with its very own TUBBZ, representing some of the biggest video game, film, TV, and comic book brands of the moment.

TUBBZ transforms some of the most iconic figures and characters from geek culture into a series of duck-style figurines, each featured in individual poses to reflect their characters and packaged in a stackable box with a bathtub-shaped display stand.

Already, Numskull has licensed the likes of DC Comics’ Batman, Robin, Joker, and Harley Quinn, as well as Egon, Ray, Venkman, and Winston from th classic Ghostbusters IP, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, and Blanka from Street Fighter, and Frodo, Gandalf, Sauron, and Legolas from The Lord of the Rings.

These are joined by characters from the Borderlands video game, Fallout, Destiny, Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

TUBBZ will be released in regular waves, featuring a new assortment of collectables in each to represent new fan-favourite brands.
