Craze One…Pail Kid

If you were wondering what the Craze One GPK-inspired vinyl card looked like, they've revealed the front of the sticker.   You've gotta love the old school Garbage Pail Kids.

REVIEW: Babo’s Bird Uglydoll

Img_4711

Background

Uglydolls have released the newest design from David Horvath and Sun-Min KimBabo’s Bird.

You know how everyone looks like their pet?  Well, Babo looks just like his pet peeve!  BIRDS!  Babo can’t stand birds!  They always eat the crumbs his cookies leave behind!  Well, too bad because one bird has taken a liking to Babo and now likes to call him mommy.

Sounds serious, right?  And Babo doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.  So now Babo’s Bird is...Babo’s bird.  Luckily Babo doesn’t have shoulders either.  Have any cookie crumbs?

Packaging

Nope.  None.  Nada.  No thanks.  While you might want to keep him in a cage, Babo’s Bird is free of any packaging.

REVIEW: Lara Croft TCF

Background

The Tomb Raider video game, featuring the female archaeologist Lara Croft, was originally released in 1996 for the Sega Saturn.  The game is probably the lone bright spot in the Saturn’s three-year run.  The third person game follows Croft as she searches for ancient treasures.  The character has seen her share of adventures in the video game realm as well as in Hollywood films.

Tonner Doll Company kept their Lara Croft TCF (sorta) secret for its Wizard World Chicago debut.  Now that you know who the mystery female gaming character is, you’ll be glad to know that this is the first in a line of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft inspired figures.

Packaging

The traditional Tonner rectangular box is done in black with Lara Croft Tomb Raider Legend in silver lettering.  (The Tomb Raider Legend game was released in 2006)  All of the accessories come individually packaged and the figure is protected like your high school lunch lady…sporting a hairnet.
