2006 Toy Fair: STRANGEco Part 2

Superfun Company is following up their Toxic Teddies Ramones set with a set of the Misfits.  They also have a brand new Toxic Teddies line based on classic horror films.  It looks like The Shining, Jaws, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Planet of the Apes to me.

Ron English’s Cathy Cowgirl might
have been one of the more shocking figures at Toy Fair (well maybe not
as shocking as devil baby dolls).  The figure is statuesque and made of
resin.  Some might call it udder-ly ridiculous (bad, bad joke).

Will Sweeney's comic, Tales from Greenfuzz, has introduced us to a number of wild characters. Next up is The Kebab Henchmen (Kleptikos and Periwinkle).  They are the skewered sidekicks of Helmut the Hot Dog Man…remember the hot dog with a tommy gun?

Superdeux’s new Shikito figure was on display.  It looks like a multi-colored, smiley-faced Hershey Kiss (…or maybe a turd).  Wootini and Jermaine Rogers’ second figure – Squire – was also being shown off.  This figure might be the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen!
