Tenacious Toys Custom Marshall Blind Box Series reveal: Den Ramos

by
Den Ramos is a pretty quiet guy, usually. 
I've always said that it's those kinds of dudes that you have to watch out for. 
Underneath that subdued exterior is a tattoo-slinging, Corvette-driving badass from Long Island, NY. When Mr. Den is not working at the Elite Gudz design studio, or laying down ink, he's hacking up toys and sculpting on them like a madman. Remember that crazy Rat Fink-style giant Munny at the Kidrobot MunnyWorld group show? The one with the full huge red car that the munny was riding in? That was Den.
I told the artists that sculpting was not necessary on the Marshalls they were doing for us, they could just paint them and send them back. Well, Den didn't listen and he sculpted the crap out of his Marshalls. This was right after the BP oil spill; Den did up 3 Marshalls like this in Tarball Brown and the chaser in BP's lovely Corporate Green. Lookin' slick, Den!

Lemi mini plushes coming soon

by
Eric of Thunderpanda wrote to us to let us know he has created mini versions of his awesome Lemi the Space Wanderer plushes! The minis come in 3 different colors: blue, pink and green.

The different colorways were handmade in different-sized runs: green is limited to 50 pieces, pink is limited to 100 pieces and blue is limited to 150 pieces. Eric says he'll probably sell them as sets of 3, and Tenacious Toys will be the exclusive North American distributor of these sets. $25 gets you all 3 plushes, packed inside a multipurpose bag with a sticker. Hoo-RAH!
9/7/10 update: Lemi mini plushes are on the way to us right now from Indonesia!
