Tomorrow, Wednesday December 4th 2013, at Noon PT, Toy Art Gallery will be releasing a new project with legendary toy designer Tim Clarke - the TOTIMS. Tim was once known as the King of Gross after co-creating Sectaurs (Coleco) and Boglins (Mattel) in the 1980s.
Each TOTIMS set consists of a total of 4 interchangeable parts which can be rearranged into multiple configurations: one top, two sectionals 1 bottom, plus two connectors and an extra top cap. All combined, they stand around 12 inches tall. The debut TOTIMS release is cast in a pink soft vinyl (made in Japan). Am I the only one who sees a giant disturbing phallus?
For millions of years the TOTIMS have lived around us in virtual obscurity. Many thought that they were idols of a long lost primitive society depicted in stone. Little did we know that they are living, breathing creatures and they are tired of living in the shadows. Beware the rise of the TOTIMS! The Totims are made up of a highly classified society, with Kings, Generals, soldiers, and underlings. Many have said that those who possess TOTIMS derive certain powers to change the world around them. All we know is those that do have an uncanny power over those who don’t.
