Seen: Craola -- Stair Monsta Signing at 3DRetro

craola_monsta_release-1

Last Saturday evening, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins released and signed his surreal Stair Monsta figure for a large group of collectors and fans at producer 3DRetro’s location in Burbank.  Joined by sculptor Kevin Pasko who brought both Stair Monsta and the previous Ralf figure to 3D life, Craola debuted perhaps the best vinyl translation of his work to date. Monsta is a striking orca and cow hybrid—blended as only he can—masquerading as a harmless bunny. Lurking in the dark and seen as a menacing shadow, Stair Monsta is one of a long list of bedtime impediments and terrors faced by Ralf and his brother in the I’m Scared stop-motion short.

Fresh from the film festival circuit, collectors and fans were treated to an eagerly anticipated screening of the film in the store’s parking lot turned theater. Fun and humorous, the short delivers animated poetry visualizing childhood fears and imagination run amok, brought on by looming sleep time.

In addition to Stair Monsta and Ralf, collectors had plenty of additional Craola collectibles to choose from including the I’m Scared Mook, Tricky Treator Socks, Join Me giclee, and raffle tickets to win a Craola original coffin panel painting.

Super7 x Invisible Creature – Colonel Stinson + Leroy C. Wormwood (12.5)

Updated: Full final  photo of both releases  

Invisible Creature will be in the house at Super7 on Friday (12.5) for a double drop of fancy toys.  First up is the new Colonel Stinson sofubi (proto seen @ sdcc ‘12proto seen @ sdcc ‘12), the first character in Invisible Creature’s Odd Galaxy world filled with space misfits. Apparently cast in green vinyl with assorted spays, the Colonel looks spot-on atop a treaded vehicle and will come with a limited-edition box + art print. 

Secondly, comes Leroy C. Wormwood.  This one is described as deluxe wood + vinyl edition of Leroy C. and is a collab with Uncle Goose Toys who produced IC’s Stack and Scare creature sets.  While we had originally speculated that this one would feature a ‘worm’ wood accessory, we’re pleasantly surprised that it’s actually a clear Leroy (w/orange + lime green sprays) with a woodworm inside!   This one comes with a limited-edition art print as well.

In related IC x Uncle Goose news, it looks like the new Stack ‘n Scare tiles are about to drop as well.
