If you missed picking up the Indrid Cold Mothman from davidhorvath.com, well, you missed out. They sold out in 30 minutes. Which, ironically, is the length of time it takes me to watch Golden Girls on Lifetime. Maybe if I wasn't entranced with Bea Arthur, I would have picked up the Indrid Cold Mothman figure. Nevertheless...we all will have a chance to pick up the Point Pleasant Type Mothman next week. Get to davidhorvath.com on Wednesday August 23rd at 11am PST (2pm EST) to pick one up. And remember that these go fast!
Itokin Park has produced another amazing handmade figure - Kawadoji. The creator of some of the most insane handmade creations, Itokin Park has assembled another killer design.

They are up for pre-order now for £33.95 plus shipping (about $64.42).

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.
