Who would have thought up a line of law-enforcing swine, other than the minds of SEEN and Planet 6? The Phony Baloney pigs seem to find themselves in some rather precarious situations. The team of police officers can be seen in their first full length comic book – Phony Baloney: Phony Island Phiasco, which is produced by Terminal Press. They also have been immortalized in plastic as a set of 8 figures and claim to be feeding you the truth about pork.
The Phony Baloney line can be purchased individually or in an 7-piece box set. I guess it depends on whether or not you like a specific character or the entire line. The box set does not include one figure – Porked! However, I would recommend picking up a copy of the comic book, as it gives a nice background to the entire line.
Planet6 has opened their online shop for all of your SEEN needs. You can pick up Phony Baloney, SEEN signatures, Thundermutt or Spraycan Monsters from the store. They also have some photos of upcoming projects such as Dem Bones, Teddy Troops and the Phony Baloney Qees.
Terminal Press has joined forces with the folks at Planet 6. They are currently putting the finishing touches on the premiere issue of the Phony-Baloney comic book. It'll be nice to have a little back story to go along with the hilarious line of law enforcement pigs. Look for the comic to launch early 2006.
Rocket World Gallery exhibited the work of SEEN in the opening of Monsters That Scare Me on October 29th. You can now view and purchase any of the 42 hand painted canvases through the Rocket World website.
SEEN and the folks over at Planet6.com have done a complete redesign of their website. You'll find a ton of toy related info, with the launch of Phony Baloney almost upon us. There is also past projects such as Spraycan Monsters and the SEEN tag.
