Metin Seven is a Dutch designer whose weekly three dimensional webcomic - Seamour Sheep – has garnered interest due to it’s funny story line and hilarious main characters. The comic follows the adventures of a Scottish sheep named Seamour and a wiseacre mole named Marty.
Metin teamed up with Crazy Label to bring Seamour Sheep and Marty Mole to life…in vinyl form. Now, you can act out your favorite Seamour Sheep comic, or just sit them on your shelf and stare at them for hours.
Seamour Sheep is packaged in a bright green box that shows the figure from various angles. The bottom of the box has a comic printed on it and the figure is secured in a pullout tray with one twist tie. Marty Mole’s packaging is a little simpler. He comes bagged in a black bag that has information about the figure printed on the outside.
The folks over at Suckadelic have produced this great commercial that spoofs the old Star Wars ads of the late 70's and early 80's. Now, the language might be a little too graphic for younger viewers...but it's definitely a hilarious acting job by the Sucklord. And there should be more spots for the vinyl figures that are set to be released. Can't wait!
We told you a few days ago about the Toys Kill show taking place at Meltdown Comics on October 6th. Jim Koch will be debuting his limited edition Gosho Doll (from Super Rad Toys). Here are some preview images of the piece.
I warn you, do not stare into the Shiitakes' cyclops eye for too long. These monster mushrooms have a variety of bizarre powers that eventually led to their escape from their creator. Presently they camouflage themselves as regular toys with a convenient clip-on in efforts for you to take them with you! But always keep a good eye on a Shiitake, you never know what they're up to.
Erick Scarecrow’s Shiitakes line of clip-on plush toys was recently released through his ESC Toy label. Series 1 contains 5 original colorways as well as several secret plushies.
As with most plushies, the Shiitakes line has minimal packaging. You might still find them in a plastic bag, but the plush will most likely only have a tag attached to it. The tag has some background information as well as drawings of the characters.
The folks at Crazy Label (and artist Michael Fleming) are asking you to go ahead and vote on your favorite Putrid Pal toy colorway. Actually, you can vote up to four times. They'll use your opinion to produce alternate color versions. I'm a little partial to number 8...especially with Halloween approaching.
UNKL has announced two additions to their UniPo line. You might recognize the design from UniPo Series 4. It was apparently so popular, that they've launched a Skeleton Series. The pink colorway is limited to 200 pieces and will be exclusively through UNKL's website, while the silver version will be available at retailers and limited to a run of 500 pieces.
