TRWG! is the newest limited edition vinyl figure from artist Pete Fowler and STRANGEco, and begins shipping in November 2006.
TRWG (pronounced troog) is a walking, talking encyclopedia of the unique musical styles found
on Monsterism Island. Bred and schooled on a commune in the hills, he
now writes his own music fanzine (titled It’s Fragly!) and is always found in front at local gigs. He’s the first to know about the new local bands, where they are playing and what they eat for
Retail will be $59.99 and it'll be available in November.
The first toy from artist, designer, and photographer Kii
Arens is sure to please both mods and toy collectors. Standing 7"
tall, its working eye light glows while its magnetic feet keep LA-LA (produced by Munky King) firmly planted on all metal objects. The figure is packaged in a printed plastic tube simulating Kii's lightbox piece "Highway
None." Battery is included.
Less than 400 of each color (glossy black & pearlescent white) are
available for wholesale from DKE Toys. Look for them to retail around $40.
