REVIEW: Bossy Bear Vinyl



David Horvath, the creator of Uglydolls, Little Bony and plenty other popular characters, has launched his first picture book – Bossy Bear.  While Bossy Bear is produced by Hyperion Books for Children, grown-ups will also find the domineering blue bear a comical read.

Bossy Bear is very bossy.  He wants everything HIS way, and he wants it NOW!

In conjunction with the release of the book, and David’s reading tour, Toy2R has developed and released the vinyl version of Bossy Bear. 



The figure is packaged in a partial window-front box.  If you’re a fan of seeing 2D work along with your 3D toy, you’ll obviously be pleased.  You can see how much Horvath artwork is peppered around the box.

The Vader Project


The Vader Project, a re-imagining of the iconic Darth Vader helmet by some
of today's hottest pop and underground artists, will have its World
Premiere May 24 to 28th, 2007 at Star
Celebration IV
, a landmark event being held at the Los Angeles
Convention Center to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. The
five-day event is expected to attract more than 25,000 Star Wars fans
from around the world


The Vader Project is presented by
Master Replicas Inc. and curated by Dov Kelemer of DKE Toys. Kelemer gathered 75
of the hottest underground and pop surrealist painters, artists and
designers to participate.  Each artist was given a Master
Replicas 1:1 scale prop replica of the actual Darth Vader helmet used in
the Star Wars films. Each helmet served as a blank canvas for each
artist to paint, design, mash up, and customize. 

Here is a partial list of artists, as well as some smaller photos of some of their work.  When they say 75 of the top artists...they really mean it!  We've shown you works by Suckadelic (top) and Alex Pardee (middle) thanks to DKE Toys!
