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.

The Figure

The Monster Burp rotocast vinyl figure stands approximately 6” tall and has two points of articulation (the arms on the burp).  The Monster and the Burp are sculpted separately; the burp is then inserted inside of the Monster’s mouth.

The figure includes a reproduction of the print that inspired it.  And on the other side of that print is a “mini zine”, which includes a six-pane comic and a solvable maze.

The vinyl is limited to an edition run of 800 pieces.

Our Opinion

I know you’re probably wondering, “How does ?hat thing not fall over?”  I know it, because I was thinking the same exact thing.  The burp section is probably 5 times as big as the little monster base.  The center of the burp is fairly close to of the center of the monster, and the burp is so lightweight that it doesn’t pull the entire figure forward.

While the little monster is cute, what makes this figure fun is the fact that it’s burping.  How can you visually capture a belch?  Well, Peskimo has figured it out.

The sculpt is well done, in that it duplicates the look of the original artwork from The Monster Burp show.  There’s minimal paintwork on the piece: the monster’s eyes, feet, scales and the face on the burp.  But the colors that are used definitely catch the eye.
