MadKnits, which does a 3rd Saturday release every month, will be releasing Pratt at Noon on September 20th 2014.

Pratt the Outlaw - Pratt follows no one's rules, including his own! Since the crash he has been cruising the planet on his own, making his own way and cashing in when he can---legally or not. Pratt is suited out with a wool holster and ray gun. Each monster comes individually numbered on his ray gun

Obviously modeled after a recently released blockbuster film, this 10-inch tall guardian is limited to a run of only 20 pieces. While pricing details weren't released, if it's priced similar to past 3rd Saturday releases, you're looking at around $38.00.


Kat Killer Plush Toys


It's times like this that I regret my high school didn't offer up a course in Portuguese. At first blush, I was pretty sure that Kat Killer (maybe that means something different in Portuguese) was producing hipster dolls that you could take on your urban foraging escapades.

I was wrong. They've actually produced several plush dolls on licenses I'm pretty sure they don't have. But these are homage pieces to television shows, films, and musical acts. And there are plenty of original characters - such as the Old School Tattoo Guy shown above. Prices on the Kat Killer plush toys - some around two feet in length - are pretty attractive...falling right around $50.00.
