Icebat Kaiju (GID)

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

icebat gid

Yey! Another Icebat Kaiju! He glows! XD All the Icebat Kaijus really look nice together when displayed. I’ll post a picture when my pink and GID version arrives. :) Btw, my pink version is on the way! Yipee!

Collectors should get this while pre-orders are still up. This version is only limited to 50 pieces and will be available mid-June.

Where is Pink Icebat?!?

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

*sigh*

I’m so worried now. I ordered a Pink Icebat almost a month ago and he has not arrived yet. The online shop has not said anything if they already shipped him. They usually send an e-mail if they shipped out an order. Those who ordered from Korea got theirs, but I ordered mine from Japan…

Where is Pink Icebat? I hope he’s not lonely out there. I want him to join his other Icebat kaiju brothers. They’re very worried as well. :(

Plunko

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Here’s one of the new Uglies, Plunko!

plunko "Plunko is a business man. He’s got his own car wash, his own tire store, and ideas for lots of other stores. Some of those ideas are his very own! Plunko is a good guy to know. If you know Plunko, you can say you’ve got some connections. And if you call Plunko’s phone, you may get a bad connection. So anyway, are you sold on Plunko? Are you ready to do business? Plunko is the ultimate business partner because he only wants 100% of your love and even less of your money."

I just got my Ugly Guide books! There are currently two titles in this series available: Ugly Guide to the Uglyverse and Ugly Guide to Things That Go and Things That Should Go But Don’t.

The content of the books are really funny and inspiring.  I can’t wait to read the future volumes. :D

minty choco

Choco and Minty, formerly candy bar mascots, now have their own chocolate bar! Dark Chocolate with Mint~ a very good combination. The wrapper is too cute to be torn apart though. There are a bunch of other designs from different artists, too! Eat or collect? Hehe.

Hungerrrr!

bossy bear hungry

B@erbricks serving Bossy Bear?! What has the world gone in to?

Bossy Bear is becoming very influential. Maybe in a few years he’ll be running for President…Oops, he won’t be doing any campaigns, he’ll just claim the position when he’s up to it. Hehe.

Goodbye Toodee

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

I found out a few days ago that Uglydoll Toodee has been retired. I’m glad that I adopted one. The reason behind the retirement was not because people doesn’t love him. In fact, he is very well-loved, all Uglies are.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I was browsing our nearby designer toy store and saw a figure named Toodee from the Yo Gabba Gabba series. Apparently, Yo Gabba Gabba has a TV show. So, here’s the story why they had to let go Uglydoll Toodee:

"The final word on TooDee is that our friends decided to produce a TV show with a guy named TooDee. We didn’t get in trouble. They didn’t get in trouble. Neither of us knew the other was working on something with the name "TooDee" in it. It was just in the air. So we decided to retire TooDee out of respect for our friends show, which would have been VERY expensive to re-shoot at that point. I am sure they would do the same for us next time."

Goodbye Uglydoll Toodee! You will always be in our hearts!
