GORILLA BISCUITS SUPER 7 VARIANT FIGURE

/ 9 years ago

NYHC Heroes Gorilla Biscuits were lucky enough to be honored in plastic by Super 7. I was not lucky enough to get one of these when they came. aaronf8554 is selling a Super 7 Gorilla Biscuit’s figure. I don’t know much about this figure other than it is the Gorilla from the Gorilla Biscuits 7in cover. It is obiviously a super limited figure and a variant. The figure does not come with a package according to the seller. It was part of a lucky bag pull. I would love to own this figure but the price is to rich for my blood.

If you checkSKATENOIZE you will see that I also posted a Garfield Skate deck from this series. bigpearly is selling this extremely limited toy from The Hundreds. This piece comes with 6 points of articulation and fully rolling skateboard. The figure itself is limited to 100 pieces. So it’s not easy to come by. This particular one is a variant.

Mickey Mouse Isn’t Paying The Bills Anymore

/ 9 years ago

Have you noticed the recent of appearance in Disney in all sorts of new places? I know I have. It seems like Disney is attempting to branch out. After 90 years, someone realized it was time to mix it up. And this makes sense too. Traditionally, Disney’s target demographic has been children age 0 – 14 (or some where in the early teens). Courtesy of iPods, xbox and a shorter maturation time span, this target demographic window is shrinking. Instead of 0-14, Disney is lucky if they can hold onto 0-11. I’ve walked by a few Disney stores (the ones that didn’t out right shut down), and I would have to say the average age of the end consumer is getting lower and lower. I’d guess it is close to 4 lately (I think princesses are one of those Disney saviors).

This shrinking window must have forced execs to start thinking outside the box. In this post, I hope to give you a glimpse into this window. And oddly, most of these items are NOT in the usual toy range …

Lets start off with this lip gloss from MAC makeups. Yeah, not the typical item you would see branded with Disney characters. I’ve walked by enough Macy’s makeup counters and Sephoras to realize that makeup is big business. Disney execs can see this too. It seems everyone these days is getting into the health good collaborations from Kat Von Dee to Pharrell Williams. Makeup is big. And who’s bigger in a young ladies life than good old Daisy Duke. Seems like an easy transition product for tweens and teens.

Over to the mens counter, a few street brands have had success collaborating with Disney. These ones really struck me as odd. No disrespect to the brands Hundreds or Supreme, but the lifestyles portrayed by these crews seems very un-Disney. I believe The Hundreds kicked it off 2-3 years back. They did a big “Lost Boys” themed style drop. It worked, it even made sense. The Lost Boys were always the riff raff of the Pan world. I’m sure The Hundreds feels the same way.

Then Supreme (the king of collaborations) dropped these Mickey Mouse tees. You wouldn’t look at them twice if you saw someone wearing one on the street. They look like every other Mouse tee you’ve ever seen. Except these are branded with the name SUPREME. And that turns a $15 shirt into a $75 shirt. Good luck to the seller of this particular one …

Now I know what you are thinking. You didn’t come to this post to read about makeup and tshirts. Where the toys at??? Settle down, we’re getting to my favorite piece right now.

What you see here is the Kaws X Disney Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket Set. These pieces dropped on August 28, 2010 (just a few days back, mind you) over in Japan at the Original Fake store. Kaws has been going hard with art, beer bottles … and massive sculptures lately so I was very excited to see him get back into the toy market (doesn’t it feel like the kaws dissected figures came out a million years ago already??).

This one has classic KAWS styling. X’ed up hands, slashed mouths and tons of great details. Jiminy Cricket stands about as tall as a 100% Be@rbrick, where Pinocchio is more like a 400% Be@rbrick. Again, these would look great in my living room. Hook it up!

ps. Did anyone see this ridiculous “Kaws figure lot”? Whoooofffffff. Does this kid know how ebay works?? I’m guessing not. (more…)
