Img_6239

Background

Peskimo – David and Jodie – designed a rather memorable art print for the London-based Monster Burp Show.  It was so memorable that they recently teamed up with Crazy Label to produce and release a vinyl figure based on their character design.

The Monster Burp vinyl is a two-piece figure that brings Peskimo’s artwork to life.

Packaging

The piece is packaged in a rectangular box with a small window front.  The window is just large enough to view the face of the burp.  The front of the box flips open, and, inside, the pieces are kept in place using small, clear rubber bands.

REVIEW: Poison Ivy – Sealed With A Kiss TCF

Img_6185

Background

The second character from Tonner Doll’s exclusive Women of Power line is Poison Ivy: Sealed With a Kiss.  This is the fashion doll version of Poison Ivy, aka Pamela Isley.  She’s all “dolled” up in formal attire as opposed to the classic DC Comics attire you would find her sporting.

As a nemesis of Batman, Poison Ivy is known for being the DC world’s most famous eco-terrorist.  Usually seen in an outfit made out of plant life, this Tonner Character Figure’s garb is a change of pace.

Packaging

The Women of Power line continues to use the same packaging that the DC Stars figures come enclosed in.  The all black box has the DC Stars logo on the front lid.  And the figure inside is fastened in with bows and Styrofoam (with a fashionable hairnet).

Bunnyfish_profile

Kozyndan - the London-based duo - have wanted to make a toy of their Bunnyfish character ever since a crocheted version of one was given to them by a nice fan named Jellibat in Australia.  They teamed up with Klim K at Bigshot Toyworks to develop and produce replicas of that character.  Each piece is handmade of cotton yarn with a polyester fill.  The 5" long toy comes in two colors - blue or green - and the suggested retail price is $18.
