The folks at MadKnits have announced June's Monster-of-the-Month. Otis is a closed release of 20 pieces, with each one signed and numbered on a laser-etched cassette tape. Standing in at 10" tall, Otis features a fur mohawk that runs down his back.

A little bit about him:

Otis is the lead singer of one of the sweetest bands to ever hit the Northwest: Otis and the Canadian Soldiers! His band is a killer blend of punk and dance jams, and is made up completely of MadKnits monsters. Originally from Canada (and before that outerspace) Otis is stoked to be travelling again and bringing his unique sound and fashion sense stateside! Keep an eye out, he might be hitting a venue near you soon...

Tentatrio Plush Pals

Tentatrio Plush

Inki Drop (Shelly Rodriguez) has created a Kickstarter project, trying to get her Tentatrio plush pals into production. Each plush measures 4" tall and is constructed of super soft, high quality minky fur and embellished with embroidered details.

The initial $8,500 goal amount for the project has been met. It will allow Shelly to produce 250 of each design, for a total of 750 plashes. (There's also a Starwhal stretch goal at $17,500)

As far as pledge levels, a plush squid can be had starting at the $25.00 level. This project will be funded on Thursday June 5th 2014 at 5:22PM ET.

Felix the Traveling-Man

MadKnits Felix 1

MadKnits' Saturday release was Felix the Traveling-Man.

He used to explore the furthest reaches of outer space with his big brother Chaga, charting new nebulae and star systems but since their crash to earth he now settles for hiking the Himalayas and backpacking through Nepal. Maybe his next adventure will take him somewhere near you!

Felix is May's Monster of the Month. A closed release of 20 pieces, each signed and numbered plush stands 9" tall and has a removable wool backpack. You can pick one up now for $38.00.

MadKnits’ Shiloh

MadKnits Shiloh 1

Shiloh is April's 3rd Saturday release from MadKnits. This is a closed release of 12 pieces. Each piece comes signed and numbered on a laser etched wooden film reel. Shiloh stands independently - approximately 12" tall - and has fully articulated arms. Each piece comes with a red fez and a wood film reel. You can pick up one for $60.00 at the MadKnits Store.

Shiloh is a quiet soul. She has taken a job at an old movie theatre as a projectionist where she can indulge in her love of collecting vintage film reels. Unfortunately, while watching all those movie marathons, she has gotten quite fat on all that free popcorn!

REVIEW: 8 Little Zombies Plush

8 Littles Zombies 01

Background

Eight Little Zombies, rising from the dead. One got shot and lost his head. Neighbor called the Sheriff and the Sheriff said, “No more zombies rising from the dead!”

John LaFleur and Dave Metzger have taken to Kickstarter to get their 8 Little Zombies hardcover book produced. The story is a zombified spin on the classic children’s tale about eight little monkeys jumping on someone’s bed and then falling and being brutally injured.

The 8 Little Zombies plush - one of the backing rewards - is available at various funding levels. Hopefully, it will also be able to be purchased following the successful completion to the Kickstarter project.
