What’s a Gwin?  It’s a brand new  penguin vinyl toy  from October Toys.  The shape is based on the original "Tux"  penguin (Linux Mascot) designed by Larry Ewing. What a cool idea and sweet inspiration!  Series 1 features nine designs including those from   Mimic, Doctor A, Nixon Scratches, idlechimp, Eric Treadway and SpookyAMD.  Not only is the shape interesting, I’m a huge fan of both Mimic and Doctor A so its doubly sweet!  While series 1 won’t drop until  late August, it  will be on display at SDCC (July 14th – 17th) in the Tower Records booth (#4729).   The Gwin’s are available for pre-order directy on the website at $8 each or $64 for the full set of nine, so check ’em out!
