Don Hertzfeldt at Silent Movie Theatre Tomorrow!

For animation fans...

How did this slip past me? Tomorrow Don Hertzfeldt is screening his new animated short "I Am So Proud of You" at Silent Movie Theatre. Two showings are already sold out but they added a midnight screening that hasn't sold out yet. BEST PART? The man will be there for a Q&A.

I wish he had some toys.

Evil Poopicorn - Evil Poopicorn Dropping at VTN After-party

Evil Poopicorn - Amanda Visell - flyer

VTN is going to be superb this time around, and the fun don't stop there. Saturday, December 6, Switcheroo will be hosting the VTN after-party at their private workshop. Amanda Visell's Evil Poopicorn will be released (yay!) in an edition of 25, and Michelle Valigura will release plush toy Brass Knuckle Bob.

Wait, there's more. Vinyl Pulse reports that there will be free drinks and a few surprises to expect. Now this is one more thing to be thankful for...

(Happy Thanksgiving!)

Doc Von Block - Paint Samples

So, last week I said I would post more photos of Scott Tolleson's Doc Von Block (and sidekick beaker Ivan). We just got these preview photos of factory samples that are currently being worked on. (Thanks, Scott!) Look for Scott's booth at VTN, where he will have new paint samples of Doc in these colorways.

"Ill" Doc... Poor guy. I hope he hasn't been drinking the ethanol.

Rainbowasaurus - Party with Switcheroo

Going to a Switcheroo party sounds kinda dirty, but the closest to dirty you'll find at Switcheroo may be Poopicorn and his cute little droppings. (And if you're of the poop persuasion, check out their doodie dolls by Anna Chambers. Adorable filth--gotta love it.) Anyway, this is going to be a good one:

According to Bwana Spoons, Switcheroo is throwing a release party/mini Rainbowasaurus show on December 20 at their new place in LA. Bwana will be in attendance, as will anybody else in their right mind.

More info to come SOON!

VTN News!

VTN is coming up in less than a month and I am super excited!! VTN is Vinyl Toy Network and will be taking place December 6-7 at the Pasadena Convention Center. We'll have a booth with some exclusive guests--Brian Castleforte a.k.a NiceBunny's Wack & Blite toys in a special colorway. We'll have six for sale, and they come with a print and special packaging, too.

And for those who didn't see Wack & Blite at Brian's Mobius show in June, be sure to check these out at our booth. I'm looking at one right now and photos don't do these guys justice.

(But here's one [of the original colorway] anyway.)

Also, be sure to check out Scott Tolleson's booth at VTN. He'll be showing new paint samples of Doc von Block, who debuted at SDCC earlier this year in a limited edition of 25. These are awesome, so go take a look!

I'll be posting more photos of Doc soon.

This comes to you first from our Pretty in Plastic newsletter, so be sure to join our mailing list.

Hey, remember these?

Bush buttplugs sculpted and cast by Julie B

Soon, they'll just be funny and not funny-tinged-with-the-sad-knowledge-that-he's-STILL-our-president. Huzzah!

Obama may not be as good fodder for buttplugs as his soon-to-be predecessor, but there are already all kinds of Obama action figures (ranging from ultra-cheeze to Suckadelic) AND even an Obama "pleasure toy."

Get with it and make your own paper Obama toy! Check out:

In other good news...
We've been working on a lot of great new toys, so stay tuned!
