An auction of custom Qees benefitting tsunami relief starts this Thursday, April 14th on Ebay! This auction was organized through the Qeester.com message boards and features great one-of-a-kind toys by such notable names as MAD, Sket-One, TADO and Mimic. The customs cover almost the entire range of Qee shapes and sizes: 8-inch Qees, 2-inch Qees, Knucklebears, and a Baby Qee (MAD’s Starface). So be sure to check out these customs and make as generous a bid as you can afford! It’s for a great cause and you might get an awesome custom toy as well!
There are soo many cool designs but several standout for me:
Sket-one’s Ganesh Qee because it’s simply beautiful and seems to almost completely transcend its origins as a toy.
Mimic’s Yoda Qee because it’s very kick ass with a light saber to boot. Gotta love the facial detail!
Tesselate’s LED Qee which I previously blogged about — just such a neat idea and effect. I wonder how this is powered? Internal batteries?
And finally, Chad Mount’s 2-inch "Why?" Qee is a streamlined yet very compelling
design. In part, the expressive eyes of this figure really add to the
overall feeling. Check it out below:
