Tag

The Frankentoast plush sports a rather simple swing tag. It has an illustrated version of the character, as well as details such as edition size and Comic Con 2011 Exclusive.

Our Opinion

While plush collectors might think that they get the short end of the stick when it comes to Comic Con exclusives, there are a few spots that have limited edition, special runs just for San Diego. Dan Goodsell and his crispy slices of bread (they're actually plush) seem to always make the annual SDCC appearance with an exclusive piece.

The Frankentoast is exactly what it sounds like. Mr. Toast...looking like Frankenstein's monster. The green plush features a dark brown crust. Little black arms and legs hang off the plush. The embroidered parts include Frankentoast's closed eyes, the slightly open mouth and that nasty incision (with staples) around his cranium.

The Frankentoast plush runs $10.00, which is about what I would have expected. The quality of the materials used isn't that of Uglydolls. But Frankentoast is extremely soft...I think because it's lightly stuffed (not packed with stuffing). It's a fun character, so if you collect plush toys or like old-school horror movies (or enjoy the occasional piece of toast)...you'd probably enjoy Frankentoast.

There are several of these 2011 San Diego Comic Con exclusives Frankentoast plushies available. So if you didn't get to SDCC, or didn't get a chance to pick one up, now's your chance.
