Ringo Bear?!? Yes!!

Ringobear_web_ad

There definitely were rumors that we'd never see Joe Ledbetter's Ringo Bear made into a vinyl figure.  We saw the prototypes last year, and it looks like the final product is going to live up to the hype all of Ledbetter's Wheaty Wheat products have.  There will be 5 color variants, including several exclusives (including our sponsor - 3DRetro). 

Standard Orange Edition: 600 figures

Polar Bear Edition: 210 figures
Brown Ringo Bear (European exclusive): 300 figures

3DRetro Exclusive: 100 figures

5 & A Dime Exclusive: 60 figures

Look for it around Spring 2007...with more Ledbetter-WWS projects to come.  This figure is going to be hot!

REVIEW: Andrew Bell’s Zliks

Background

ZLIKS are a strange species of creatures that live primarily underground. They often travel in packs and will only emerge from their burrows in search of food, fun, friends... or revenge.

The line, produced by Wheaty Wheat Studios, has been designed by Andrew Bell.  They’re based on drawings from his immensely popular website (and book) – The Creatures In My Head.  There are currently 3 different “species” of Zliks – Oil, Natural and Psycho.

Packaging

Zliks come packaged in a window-front box.  It’s designed as a forest type scene.  There are instructions to create a Zlik environment from the packaging...as well as reading on drawings on the rear of the box.
