STRANGEco presents Nathan Jurevicius' Mini Treehouse series of vinyl figure.

Innocent-looking
Naal is the first character in the series - a determined keeper of the
mushroom patch. Naal’s ultrasonic helmet listens for the sound of any
unwanted shroom-spiders and once engaged in battle, Naal furiously
defends his plantation decked in robot arms, war pipe and visor. 

Naal
comes complete with a complement of accessories for both his Action
Hero and Mushroom Lover forms, including 2 separate helmets, arms and
pipes, as well as 2 mushrooms and a small family of shroom-spiders.

Look for both the Red and Green versions are 6 inches tall and made of soft vinyl.

Buzz is set to be the first vinyl toy launched by Carnival CartoonsJared Deal and Garnet Syberg-Olsen are the artists responsible for Carnival Cartoons.  They have combined to create some amazing artwork as well as some hilarious animations.  Buzz can by seen in the "Carneys" promo on their animation page.

Look for the vinyl figure to land sometime in late January or early February.  He is limited to 250 hand numbered figures (complete with a certificate signed by both artists and the sculptor) and should retail in the $65 area.  There are also plans for Carnival Cartoons to produce more Carneys characters.

2005 Toy Awards: Best Plush Figure

2005 gave us a number of new plush lines and it introduced us to some new characters from several well established lines.  We chose our 3 favorite plushies (well...one might not actually be a plush) of the past year.

Cosmic

Thomas Han's trippy artwork came to life with his Cosmic Quigly plush line.  With three super limited versions, this plush from Wheaty Wheat might have been the year's best kept secret.

Uglydog

The Uglydoll family added another member this past February.  David Horvath launched the Ugly Dog plush right around last year's Toy Fair.  It was the first Ugly to have two color variants - pink and orange.

Eggstrcp

Hmm...are Circus Punks considered plush? Well, they definitely aren't vinyl and they do have stuffing...so they fall under this category (in my book).  Even though there were so many amazing designs, Sket One's Eggster Punk stands out as on of the year's best.

Winner: Thomas Han's Cosmic Quigly
This plush didn't nearly receive the amount of attention it deserved.  With the applied vinyl detailing and super soft material, it was the most unique plush of 2005.  I'm not sure if there are any available (or where they might be purchased from) but Wheaty Wheat did have a number of these available at SDCC.

Series 1 of Voodooz

Vdz001set1

People have been anticipating the Voodooz plush line of toys from Mezco for a while now.  It appears that they have set a tentative date of April/May 2006.  I am a fan of this line as I own a handmade version of Uchawi (formerly known as Stitch).  The line was created by everyone's favorite horror toy creator - John Pinkerton.  The characters in Series 1 include Uchawi (pictured above), Ezili, Baka and Kennis.

Sket’s Buckeye Rot

Be_release

Ooo...all of the talk is over and we now have an actual sneak peek at what Sket One's Buckeye Rot will look like.  We've all heard about Eggster's tomato friend, but this pic is even better than the description.  That little thing in Buckeye's back is a knife, which you can place in his hands.  This is the first project between Wheaty Wheat and Sket.  We can't wait to get some real pics from next month's Toy Fair.
