Background

Rocket USA recently released Series 4 of Gus Fink’s popular Boogily Heads line of hand sculpted bobble head figures. The lineup consists of six new characters: Charlie Black, Giggle, Qually, Phant, Twinks and Gus Fink. There have been a few exclusive and limited run colorways (167 pieces each) released in addition to the regular versions.

If you’re not familiar with the line, Rocket USA describes them as follows:

“Each one-of-a-kind character has a name and story and is derived from foam sculptures that were hand made by Gus Fink himself, including original artist imperfections.”

Introducing Mugo

Unknown-1

Feed the Beast's new project is called Mugo - Music on the Go. Expected to drop in mid-October, Mugo is a flash based MP3 Player and storage drive. A limited edition designer MP3 player and collectible toy, Mugo features designers from around the world including Julie West, Shin Tanaka, Tougui, Yup, Pulco Mayo and a mystery designer. With a 4GB Hi-Speed USB drive, Mugo can store photos, videos, data or up to 1,000 songs. 

These are currently selling for a pre-order price of $39.99. A steal - I say! And since my iPod Touch just went kaput...I might need to pick up a Yeti Mugo.

Unknown-4

Mugo are a shy race of creatures. They are highly individualized – sometimes timid and resourceful, sometimes mischievous, but always on the cutting edge. Mugo are born with a natural gift for music, art and culture. They store knowledge. They inspire. You may not know it, but Mugo have been here all along, living in the background of your pictures, riding the wavelengths of your favorite songs. Until recently they felt too awkward to allow themselves to be seen, but they have grown more comfortable with themselves, and so they are coming out of the shadows and into you heart.

The Midnight Masquerade Dunnys

3862010183_c8f263253e_o

Sarah Miskelly (aka Lunabee) will be releasing her custom Dunny series - The Midnight Masquerade. They'll be available at lunabee.co.uk on Tuesday September 1st at 6PM London time. Each Dunny is signed by artist (a 1/1 piece) and will sell for $40 each.

Faraway in the small village of Orion's Hollow where the sun never casts her warm gaze and the moon presides over the land, live the midnight masquerade dunnies. Their gleaming eyes and sharp teeth have kept away unwanted visitors as they dance and play in the deepest dark woods of the hollow. Those who have been brave enough to venture to the village have never been seen again..
