I had been wondering how they were going to go about accomplishing this, but here are all of the details...

The folks from Mystery Science Theater 3000 are taking on a whole new medium - comics. Created for Dark Horse Comics by series creator Joel Hodgson, Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Comic finds Jonah Heston, Crow T. Robot, Tom Servo, and Gypsy thrust into the 2-D world of public domain comics, with riffing as their only defense. Comic #1 will feature a variant cover by longtime MST3K DVD artist Steve Vance. Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Comic #1 (of six) goes on sale September 9th 2018, and is available for pre-order at your local comic shop.

Kickstarter: Creamsicle Kaiju Bunny Plush

Fat Rabbit Farm has unveiled their latest plush creation - the Creamsicle Kaiju Bunny plush toy - which launched on Kickstarter.

The Creamsicle Kaiju Bunny plush toy is a mash-up of Fat Rabbit Farm’s infamous character, Babee Bunny, a creamsicle ice cream, and a kaiju (Japanese term for strange beast or giant monster). The Babee Bunny character inspired by the creators’ real bunny can be seen on Facebook’s Messenger Stickers, with millions of downloads worldwide.

The 9.5-inch tall Creamsicle Kaiju Bunny plush is made of super soft and vibrant minky fur. It has an a belly pocket that be opened to store small items.

You can back the Creamsicle Kaiju Bunny plush now on Kickstarter, starting at $35.00 with other optional premium tiers that include vinyl stickers and enamel pins.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution.

The Breakfast Bears from Kasey Tararuj

Kasey Tararuj - aka One-Eyed Girl - will be debuting a series of Scratch 'N Sniff toys at this weekend's Five Points Fest (Brooklyn, NY). The first set - The Breakfast Bears - consists of Pancake Bear, Need More Coffee Bear, Bacon Bear, Donut Bear, Cinnabun Bear, and Waffle Bear. These will be available, with other pieces, at Booth #532.

When you touch or "scratch" the bellies of each figure, it activates the delicious and realistic scent of each food. Pancakes smell like maple syrup, bacon smells like bacon, cinnabun smells like cinnamon, etc. It's a fun way to make the pieces more interactive and who doesn't love to smell their favorite foods any time of day!? The scent will last for hundreds of scratches. To make the scent last longer, avoid hard or excessive scratching or rubbing. A gentle brush is all you need to release the scent.

Brutherford Industries x Kean University at Five Points Fest

Five Points Festival, a designer toy, street, and alternative art festival, has announced a partnership, working with the next generation to further their education. 

Students of the industrial design program, under Professor Ryan Rutherford in the Robert Busch School of Design within the Michael Graves College at Kean University, have been working hard to create a marketable, well designed character, to produce and sell in a real-world experience model. The character they created, titled OTTO, was then sculpted in clay and molded in silicone. Five Points Festival is excited to have partnered with the program to provide exhibition space for the students to create and sell their goods LIVE. 

Guests to Five Points Festival will be able to experience the process - from the spark of an idea to buyer ready product. Pieces will be made to order using Brutherford Industries roto-casting technology and packaged right before your eyes!
