Rock America and Alex Pardee are set to release 4 new Bunnywith designs: Bunnywith Recent Steroid Abuse, Bunnywith Job Interview, Bunnywith Anger Management Issues and Bunnywith Homesick Abortion.  The Bunnywith Anger Management Issues was to be the SDCC exclusive...however it didn't arrive in time.  That plush is limited to a run of 300, while the others will be runs of 600 pieces.  We aren't posting photos of the Bunnywith Homesick Abortion as this might disturb some of our younger readers.   Look for the plushies to retail around $20.  If you're interested in stocking them, DKE Toys is handling the wholesale duties.

REVIEW: Rocket World’s Sasquatch and Yeti

Img_0093

Background

For ages, Sasquatch and Yeti have been living as myths and in the shadows of the human world.  With the introduction of the internet and email, Sasquatch and Yeti were able to meet and fall in love over the web.  Learning of each other and then of the I.nsurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo, they knew they had to join forces to fight against the bad humans who have been polluting their wilderness homes and killing their furry friends.

These figures are the latest addition to Rocket World’s IWG line.  They are the first mythical creatures, as all of the others are modeled after actual animals.  These are modeled after Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman…err…Snowwoman.

Packaging

The window-front box is designed in the same fashion as past IWG figures.  It’s a little larger than the rest of the line, but that might be due to larger figures.

CONTEST: A Tourney For A Bunny

Mrbunny_1

Yeah...do you remember this toy?  How everyone went crazy over trying to get one?  Well we have a Mr. Bunny figure thanks to Wheaty Wheat Studios and we have thought of a somewhat interesting way of giving it away.

The contest will be exclusive to our Plastic and Plush Discussion Board.  You'll need to signed up and have 25 posts to your name.  Then we are going to take the first 64 people who sign up and enter them into a March Madness style tournament.  Each person will secretly be assigned a toy and then we put those 64 toys into a tournament to decide what's the best designer toy out there.  Whoever was assigned that toy will win Mr. Bunny.  Get it?  Just read it 3 or 4 times...I swear it'll start making sense.

Once we have 64 people...more details will follow.

West Virginia…1966

Mothman_1

Yes, folks...it's Mothman!  The creature was written about by John Keel...who was portrayed (although as Klein instead of Keel) by Richard Gere in The Mothman Prophecies.  Mothman gripped the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia in 1966 and 67...and now you can invite him into your house.

Wonderwall and David Horvath have added a few more colorways to the list of mothmen - Indrid Cold Type and Point Pleasant Type.  All of the colorways are named after people, places or events from the Mothman story.  Look for the Indrid Cold Type and Point Pleasant Type mothmen to be available at DavidHorvath.com later this month.
