Cinko (Teal version)

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

Teal mayhem once again! I don’t know what’s so special with this color, it’s probably the favorite of David Horvath and Sun Min Kim. 

cinko teal The original Cinko is green-brownish in color so this is an extremely rare color variation of the said Ugly. Like the Teal version of Wage, this Uglydoll Cinko was originally made for the Andrewshire Gallery. Only 10 of these hand made Uglydoll Cinko exist in this color. This plush doll is hand made by Sun Min Kim herself. This was one of the early Uglydoll shows and all the Uglydolls were created in Teal for this special occasion. These hand made Uglydolls are getting impossible to find!

cinko teal back This doll can be bought at around USD$500 and some pieces are even signed by David Horvath and Sun Min Kim at the back. This makes the doll more appealing and rare for collectors

 

 

 

 

Wage (Teal version)

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

Apparently there were different color variants that was released for some Uglydolls. Remember that Wage is orange in color and a very limited teal version was released way back.

This plush doll is hand made by Sun Min Kim herself. This was first seen in one of the early Uglydoll shows and all the Uglydolls there were created in Teal for this special occasion. These hand made versions are getting impossible to find! If you do find one, it will cost around USD$500!

 

Uglydoll Yeti

ugly gamma go rare

This is the elusive Uglydoll Hand Made Yeti. This Uglydoll was done by David Horvath and Sun Min Kim for Gamma Go. The piece originally sold with a print by Tim Biskup. This is undoubtedly one of the most sought after and recognized Uglydoll versions.

This Uglydoll Yeti is hand made by Sun Min Kim herself. The edition was limited to only 50 pieces and sold out immediately. It is also hand signed on the back of the card by Sun Min and David Horvath.

I saw this very special doll being sold for USD$1,500!!! Whoa! All that for a plush doll! Very rare and very pricey indeed. Hehe.

Forget about pink cat collectibles, start collecting the Ugly way! Who knows, you might become the lucky owner of something this rare and valuable.

 

Don’t Do This in the Office

Ugly2

The Ugly Dolls are up to their old tricks again. They saw a machine that can copy paper and they thought they can use it to increase their number. More Uglies, more snacks. So if you see a weird, flat and not-so-ugly looking Ugly Doll walking down the street, that’s just one of the copies.

Shameless plug: Buy the original! Don’t buy copies. (You can’t copy true Ugliness…)

 

Zero Dolls

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

zero dolls Two boxed “ZERO DOLLS” were made back in 2002. Why zero? Because NOBODY else had them! Hehe. They’re like prototype dolls.

One was given to the Giant Robot store. It was an extra carefully made Wage. The second was this Jeero doll of which the owner is unknown. They both came in blue boxes and had very fancy, laminated tags!

Ugly Dolls Keychain

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Don’t want to bring an Ugly plush doll around, but you still want them with you? Take the Uglies wherever you go with these plush key chains. They will guard your keys for you, but make sure you give them some snacks from time to time or they might end up swallowing your keys!

jeero keychain Why am I posting Jeero again? Well, he’s the most important Ugly Doll for me and he has a funny mannerism when in key chain mode. He likes to turn around as if afraid of something. Hehe.

My dad hanged him in one of the handles of our watch display cabinet and every time I get my watch, he’s facing the wall. He must be guarding the watches or must have seen something scary. So I turn him around again, facing forward. When I return my watch, he’s facing the wall again! Lol! Funny Jeero.

 

Spider Rug

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007

It’s not only in toys, shirts or books that you’ll see their Ugly faces, but in household items as well.  Ugliness has started to over-run not just your display and book shelves but other parts of your homes as well, starting with this rug.

Swamp Gas Type

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Oh it’s just swamp gas!

pinkglowmm This new set of Mothman and Flatwoods Monster  coming soon from Wonderwall. These may seem 100% see through but they have a glow in the dark substance on the inside, so they glow PINK in the dark. Like swamp gas.

 

glowpinkfw What is swamp gas? Swamp gas has been known by several names: ignis fatuus, will-o’-the-wisp, corpse candles, jack-o’-lantern, and marsh gas. Apparently swamp gas also flies up 15 miles within a few seconds and makes 90 degree turns. Yeah sure.

big toe 14 Watch your step! Big Toe has arrived!

“Big Toe is very busy, but he’s going to take care of everything. Just watch.

At first, Big Toe may seem a little slow… until you realize he’s always one step ahead. Those donuts you were saving for tomorrow? Gone. Those leftovers from the picnic? Done. Big Toe’s on top of things! An unstoppable force of knowledge, Big Toe’s got the scoop on all the latest info, and knows what’s going down at all times… Except for when it comes to you. What’s up with you? Big Toe wants to know.”
