Buzz Carney Gets Inked


Buzz Carney made his television debut on last nights episode of TLC's Miami Ink.  He was perched on
the shelf (still in the box) right behind Chris Nunez's workspace.  One
of the guys on the show was also sporting a carnival cartoons tee
designed by Garnet from Carnival Cartoons.  The episode entitled "Staff, Staff, Staff" will air again
on July 3rd at 8PMJared Deal sent us these screen grabs, who got them courtesy of mfmunny on the Kidrobot board.




UMA: Unidentified Mysterious Animal is the newest line from David Horvath and Wonderwall.  David sent along song photos of the three characters...carded.  Those characters are Chupacabra, Flatwoods Monster and Mothman.  (Am I the only one who hears Super Furry Animal's Chupacabras every time I see these?)  The above set is known as the Newborn Types...there should be several other colorways available.  But these should be ready for San Diego Comic Con at the Giant Robot booth (we don't know the run number or price yet).

Sloth Loves Chunk…


Ahh yes...It feels like yesterday that we saw the initial prototypes of The Goonies action figure line at Toy Fair '07.   It was actually about four months ago.  Lucky for us, Mezco has posted the painted prototypes of everyone's favorite gang of misfits.  If you grew up in the 80's, you definitely know the names: Mikey, Data, Sloth, Chunk and Mouth.  (Well...Mikey isn't all that unique.)  The line will be released this summer and loaded with accessories from the movie.
