Goodleg Toys and Teptec Studios honor Bud Spencer


Goodleg Toys x Teptec Studios have produced and released the Bud Spencer Action Figure. Dropping for Bud’s 85th're probably wondering "Who the hell is Bud Spencer?"

Bud Spencer is an Italian actor who teamed up with fellow actor Terence Hill on over 20 films. Personally, I remember him from his work in spaghetti westerns. Specifically, there's the rather unique spaghetti western comedies - They Call Me Trinity and Trinity Is Still My Name.  

So Goodleg Toys joined up with Teptec Studios to produce a figure compatible with the classic Hasbro WWF figures. Their unofficial Bud Spencer action figure, named Bud “The Bomber” Graziano, is available to pre-order in both bagged ($70.00) and carded ($85.00) versions. You can also pick up a blank, unpainted figure ($45.00, bagged).

Worry Beans


Taylored Curiosities has released the Worry Beans. These roughly 1.5" tall handmade resin figures are available for £6.50 each.

As you may know, I have always offered a selection of art toys that addresses anxiety issues and worrying. I had my plush line of Feelings and now I am introducing 'Worry Beans'. Feeling Autumnal I have adorned the first batch with little acorn caps. Each set comes with a Worry Bean (each one hand sculpted and painted with an 'aged' face effect, so no two are alike), a Worry Beanlet (waiting to grow big enough to wear it's own acorn hat), instructions, stickers and a badge (both with original illustrations on), all gift wrapped and ready to give to someone special or someone who needs to worry less. I think anxiety and worry is something we don't always think about and actually a lot of people struggle with it every day. Keeping a Worry Bean nearby may help in small way.
