Ugly Is Still In!

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Geeez…I haven’t posted here lately. It doesn’t mean that I totally abandoned my Uglydolls fandom. I have just been pretty busy lately. I still buy Uglydolls and other Horvath-related stuff even if I’m busy! Hehe.

Let’s see what I got so far…

  • Menta Ice-bats (Both blue and white eyes that was released last 2007 at the first Deharavath. Yey! Been jumping up and down with these. I’m glad I waited and didn’t pay flipper price. XD)
  • Uglydolls Postcard Set
  • Little Uglys Babo in Purple (Also wanted a Babo’s Bird to match it but it was out of stock.)
  • Uglydoll Kaiju Babo with cookie shop (Solid Blue and In the Dark versions. I already have these, but the local store had them on super sale. LOL!*)
  • Uglydoll Kaiju Ice-bat (Clear Glitter version. My third one!* O_o Will probably have it customized.)
  • Flatwoods Monster (Fire-type version. I want to complete all 13 versions. XD Oh no…my shelf space!)
  • Grass Nut Bear Qee
  • Signed and doodled (by David Horvath) Bossy Bear book
  • God Noupa
  • Little Bony plush
  • Toothy Turtle (Yellow GID and Standard version)
  • Super Puncher

Hmm…I still lack a lot of stuff. @_@ Oh well, will just wait when the price is right.

*LOL! What’s the deal in buying the same thing over and over again? XD Some collectors have a rule to always buy in duplicate or even triplicate or even more. — One to open. One to keep. One to show-off. One to customize. The list could go on. Hehe.

Horvath Qees

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

Qees (pronounced “keys”) are a collection of designer toys created by Hong Kong-based company Toy2R. For those who are unfamiliar with Qees, you might have encountered them along with the LeSportsac Tokidoki line. They’re the colorful bear, cat or dog keychains that come with some of the bags.

Qee figures vary in their design. The original Qee has a body that resembles an extremely simplified human form, somewhat similar in appearance to Playmobil or LEGO figures, though distinctively round and squat. Depending on its theme, a figure may have the head of a bear with asymmetrical ears called a BearBearQ; a cat called KitCatQ; a dog called DoggyQ; a monkey called MonQ; or a rabbit called Bunee. The Toyer Qee has the same body type as the original, but a head that resembles a cartoon skull. The Knuckle Bear Qee resembles a graffiti-style caricature of an anthropomorphized bear. The Qee Egg simply resembles an anthropomorphized egg.

Here are some cute David Horvath and Sun-min Kim 8″ Qees design:
