Straight From Boogilyworld

Boogilyheadsblast_2

Direct from “Boogilyworld” comes a distinct line of toys called Boogily Heads.  Produced by Rocket USA, these contagious little creatures feature bobble head action and a randomly inserted collectible mini comix and poster.  Each one-of-a-kind character has a name and story and is derived from sculptures that were created and hand made by artist Gus Fink, including original artist imperfections.  The first 3 series (including 18 characters) are currently available.

The company has also created two lines of poseable, huggable plush figures.  The Boogily Bunnies (above) and Stitch Kittens (below) lines each include 6 characters as well as some rare variations.  The Boogily Bunnies measure approximately 12" in height, while the Stitch Kittens are about 7" tall.

REVIEW: Milk and Cheese

Img_2855

Background

FreeBento.com sent us two of the baddest dairy products around.  The Milk and Cheese rotocast vinyl figures are based on the comic book series of the same name.  Artist Evan Dorkin teamed up with Monkey Fun Toys to bring the carton of milk and wedge of cheese to fans and collectors of all ages.

Designed by Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer, and sculpted by Mitch Martinez, Milk and Cheese are ready, willing and more than able to kick the living crap out of your pathetic junky little action figures and highfalutin' designer "urban vinyls".

Packaging

The Milk and Cheese figures are packaged in an oversized cardboard box.  The box is full of drawings of the enclosed characters.  But the best aspect of the packaging is the full-length comic strip that is printed on the rear of the box.
