Kiwi Lubies: Four Sizes

lubies kiwi 01

Rocket USA has released the Kiwi, from their popular Lubies line, in three additional sizes variants. Of course, there's still the 5" regular version that we previously reviewed. But they've added a smaller keychain version that's 3" in diameter. It has a rope hoop on the top of its head, which is where the keychain is attached. If you'd prefer the smaller Kiwi as a plush, you could always remove that.

They also released a pair of slightly larger Kiwi Lubies. There is an 8" Kiwi and a 10" Kiwi plush also available. These are nearly pillow-sized...and soft enough to use as a pillow. One thing I noticed is that it looks like the fur on the Kiwi gets shorter the larger the plush is.

These are the first animal Lubies (not MLB Lubies) that I can recall seeing produced in various sizes. And while it might not be cost effective to do this with all of the characters (I'd prefer seeing more characters than various sizes), I think they chose a good plush to start with. The Kiwi is one of my favorite Lubies because of its soft fur and goofy look.

As far as picking one of these up, I've only seen the 8" Kiwi available and that was through Amazon. I'm sure that most of the usual locations will be picking up these Lubies.

Dead Presidents’ Crimson Buildman

crimson buildman 1

So the rumors are true...Plastic and Plush does have a special Buildman (Onell Design) variant that I've had hidden away for a little while. It's done in a dark crimson red with silver highlights and black face shields. And while I'm still waiting on a few things before we release the line...there's another surprise.

We have a run of 20 custom pieces from artist Matt Walker (Dead Presidents Designs) and we're going to drop 10 of them tomorrow (Friday February 25th 2011) at 8PM EST. These are done up in old-school G.I. Joe Crimson Guard style. They sparkle in the light...just amazing work. You can pick one up for $30.00 shipped to the US (add $10 for international shipping) through our online shop.
