Ectotron Mono Prototype at the PBJ Show


The Ectotron Mono toy from Level 5 and Dave Quiles of Me Llamo Jellyfish Studios is an exclusive design to the Uberbot gallery in Winter Park, Florida.  Uberbot is celebrating its 1-year anniversary with the Peanut Butter & Jellyfish Show - featuring the talented artists of Me Llamo Jellyfish (Nakanari, Jorge and Kelly Aponte, Dave Quiles, and Julius Santiago).  This design is being released in conjunction with it.  It was designed as a subconscious tribute to the first show, Ghost in the Shell (which also featured Nakanari, as well as Bloo Empire), and portrays a good-natured, yet tough robot being possessed by an evil apparition that emerged from within.  The pictures are of the color sample from the factory.  The edition size is limited to 100.

Sophisticated Sasquatches


Everyone loves plushies...and at least I am a big fan of Bigfoot and Sasquatches.  Maybe it was the 452 times I watched Harry and the Hendersons as a kid.  Rosey from Sophisticated Sasquatches has sent news of the launch of her website.  She describes the line of 12" Sasquatch plushies (made of fur and felt) as follows:

The story behind them is that there's some sasquatches out there that have a huge urge to go into urban areas and try to learn how to be cultured. Unfortunately their love for eating garbage, loud music and roughhousing often gets in the way of them trying to enjoy the finer points in life.
