With the popularity of Treeson, Crazy Label is not only releasing variant colorways...now they are preparing to bring us a 3" tall (mini) Treeson. That's right folks! You can now attach your favorite vinyl character (if Treeson's your fav) to your keychain...or just carry him around with you. Look for it to be released in late November or early December and retail around $11.95. Each figure comes with a hand strap and protective bag.
Jamungo's 9" Kozik Anarchy Nades are set to hit the distributor - DKE Toys - this week. These will be the first designed 9" Nades available to collectors. You were previously able to pick up the blanks, but that's just not the same as having a Kozik...right? Look for the Black version to retail around $70, while the more limited white will go in the $100 area. Also...this release might have the first parental warning for box art!

There definitely were rumors that we'd never see Joe Ledbetter's Ringo Bear made into a vinyl figure. We saw the prototypes last year, and it looks like the final product is going to live up to the hype all of Ledbetter's Wheaty Wheat products have.

Standard Orange Edition: 600 figures
Polar Bear Edition: 210 figures
Brown Ringo Bear (European exclusive): 300 figures
3DRetro Exclusive: 100 figures
5 & A Dime Exclusive: 60 figures
Look for it around Spring 2007...with more Ledbetter-WWS projects to come. This figure is going to be hot!

Jamungo's Sqwerts are about ready to leave the distributor - DKE Toys - for your favorite local or internet-al (pretty sure I just made up a word) shop. The line features designs by Frank Kozik, Tara McPherson, TADO and the Jamungo guys - Ferg and Van Beater. Each figure is about 4" in height and 5" long. 350 of each design ( except the Pink Van Beater design - 250 pieces) were made...so they're very limited. Look for the Sqwerts to retail around $20 each. (Ferg's design - white above - is actually clear...see below)
