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.

The Figures

Both Milk and Cheese are made of rotocast vinyl and are approximately 6” in
height
.  They have four points of articulation (arms and legs).  Each
figure has a fist sculpted to hold a specific weapon.  Since the
weapons differ in size, they cannot really be interchanged.  Milk holds
a broken gin bottle, while Cheese is equipped with his “Hammer Time”
hammer.  There is the trusty Stick-With-A-Nail-In-It…but it’s an
in-between size that doesn’t securely fit in either character’s hand.

Our Opinion

Well, we’ve been waiting for over two years for Monkey Fun Toys to
release the Milk and Cheese set.  And if you’ve been waiting as well,
you won’t be disappointed.  This is by far and away the best product
that the company has put out.  However, it would have been to their
advantage to include the company’s name and logo somewhere on the
figures (rather than a Made in China sticker).

The paint and sculpting work on these figures is very well done.  There
are some issues around the bottom of the figure with excess glue.  But
since it’s in a hidden area, you might not even notice it.

You can pick one up at the following:

  1. These are exactly like the comics. Same look, feel and bad ass vibe. They make me want to run around the house waving the toys and scream Merv Griffin!!

  3. It's here! The time has finally come! The price of plastic has at very last exceeded the price of gold! Damn! I knew I should have invested heavily.
