Pre-Order Brendan Monroe’s Sours

Newadd

Glen over there at Android 8 is now taking pre-orders for one of the most highly anticipated figures of 2006 - Brendan Monroe's Sours.  Hopefully he has enough mailbox space, because the demand for these figures are going to be crazy.  The Brown and the Green versions are what are up for pre-order.  They will run you $50 each - plus shipping.  Each figure stands at 7.5 inches in height and has a removable face.  How cool is that?  To get on the list email Glen at glen@android8.com.

Socialpest.com is going to be cranking out 100 hemp t-shirts designed by toy designer MAD.  The folks from socialpest are encouraging people to sign up for their mailing list as they will notify those people first of the t-shirt sale.  And I probably would recommend not trying to smoke the hemp t-shirts...

Yes, that's a gigantic Uglydog in the window of Forbidden Planet (at the corner of 13th and Broadway in New York City).  Just in time for Valentine's Day, giant Uglydog has made a...well...giant debut.  What better way to show your loved one you care?

Mixy and Joe Packaging

Mixyfront

If you haven't seen the Mixy and Joe action figures from UK based comic designer Chronic Fatigue (and produced by Wheaty Wheat) - where have you been?  These figures definitely lend themselves to the designer scene with their unique zombie-like look.  Here are some sneak peeks as to what the packaging for these figures will be.  I am a big fan of the retro-carding...and the artwork is very cool.
