We beg EvilCorp.tv for Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy Toys

Evil-Corp-Andy-Gary

EvilCorp.tv has generated some buzz by posting three images that are their "very own EVIL homage to the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy." The Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost trio of films - Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End - have already been the focus of at least one recent art show (over at Gallery1988). And we've seen collectibles/toys based on Shaun of the Dead from the likes of Sideshow and NECA.

So what will it take to convince the folks at EvilCorp to roll with these and get them into production (dependent on, I assume, whether they can license them)? I know I would be in for all three sets.

MadKnits’ Lenore Release

MadKnits-Lenore-1
MadKnits took a month off from their Third Saturday release schedule, and dropped a new plush this past weekend. Her name is Lenore and she measures 10.5" tall - to the tips of her antlers. In her paw she holds a tiny bouquet of handmade paper flowers.
Lenore - the Light-bringer. Lenore is a very elusive MadKnit. She can only be spotted in the earliest of misty dawn mornings as the sun is cresting over the horizon. It is then that she can be seen running, swift as the wind, with her antlered friends.
Lenore is a limited edition run of 12 signed and numbered plush. You can purchase them for  $54.00 each.

Crittersaurus Print

Crittersaurus

Scott Wetterschneider has released a new 12" x 12" art print on 16" x 16" archival matte paper. Named Crittersaurus, you can read more about the character below. You can pick one up via the above link for $40.00.

Crittersaurus finds himself in a strange town, with no friends. Gently, he meanders from street to street, taking in the new sights and sounds, hopeful that, at last, he's found a place to call home. Scott Wetterschneider's giant, strange beasts are not your run-of-the-mill kaiju. They forgo violence, are often ill-at-ease, and do their best to keep a low profile. Accidents do happen, so be cautious.
