REVIEW: Corpse Bride Figures

P1020180

McFarlane Toys has released a number of new Corpse Bride products.  If you enjoyed Tim Burton’s film, you’ll find yourself in love with these figures.  They are the spitting image of the movie characters.

The Corpse Bride 2-Pack was released as a commemorative set for the release of the movie on DVD.  The set contains two 6” tall action figures of Victor and the Corpse Bride. With the characters having such long legs, I thought this might be an obstacle in creating action figures.  However, McFarlane uses small, attachable bases that help keep the figures balanced.

New Burgerman Toys

Zeebsbigwhitesm_1

Jon Burgerman has some brand-spanking new items in the works with Flying Cat.  His Zeebzeebs plushies are cheeky little creatures that like to do a spot of doodling and stickering around city centers late at night.

They've been featured in Jon’s work over the last few years - on record sleeves and in magazines. There's currently a little comic about them in the new Wooster Collective comic book.  They will launch in Dublin on the same night Mr. Burgerman is giving a talk as part of Candy Culture's  Sweet Talk on March 22nd.

Doodlebot is a vinyl figure that Jon is working on.  The photo here is a pre-production sneak preview shot.  Look for a good bit of doodling on this figure.  Very cool…I must say.
