Gary Baseman – Happy Toby To You! Toby Plush Available Now
For Toby’s 10th birthday Gary Baseman has released a new limited-edition Happy Toby To You! 12” Toby Plush. Limited to 100 signed and numbered pieces, the new Tobys are available exclusively from garybaseman.com for $300 (+s/h) each. These are the first numbered plush Tobys since the original 15” versions back in 2005 which now command prices many times over original retail. After checking, it turns out that unlike the 2005 edition, the new 12” edition does not have armature for posing Toby.
In addition to the new plush, Gary Baseman and Toby will celebrate the character’s 10th anniversary in style with the opening of the Happy Toby to You! exhibition opening on Thursday, May 21st 2015 at Times Square in Hong Kong. The new exhibition marks a tremendous year or so for Baseman in Asia which saw his touring ‘The Door is Always Open’ make stops at MOCA Taipei (June 2014) and at the Chi K11 Art Space in Shanghai(December 2014). He also created an art installation at CentralWorld in Bangkok (July 2014) as part of the festivities for the opening of the new Groove entertainment section at the world’s sixth largest mall.

Revolution Brewing x Shawnimals – Galaxy Hero Plush at C2E2 (4.24 – 4.26)
For this weekend’s C2E2 convention, Shawnimals worked with Revolution Brewing on an all-Chicago collaboration to create a plush based on their Galaxy Hero India Pale Ale, created specifically for the annual nerd gathering as the official C2E2 brew. Wait…official beer…of a comic-con? Mind blown, confused, and I suppose pleased. Ok yes, it’s been around for three years, but I’m a toy blogger not a beer blogger… (err, nevermind…). Come to think of it, I first met Shawn at a Kidrobot Toy Fair Party in a bar…
At any rate, Shawn started with the action hero style alien on the beer label and transformed it into something just a bit softer and yes, cuter. Limited to 500 pieces, the happy go lucky Galaxy Hero Plush will be available at the Shawnimals/Revolution Brewing booth [#668] for $20. If you can’t make it out to Chicago for the show, they will soon be available from RevBrew’s online shop.
