From the "I wasn't kidding" department: I should have probably mentioned that two months ago the packaging for the Brick Mantooth dolls arrived from China.
Around February I gave some money to this guy I know, after two months of no communication, more money was requested. This all seemed to be leading down the path of tears but in June I got two large boxes of Odeon Toys logo'd goodness.
The art is by my good buddy and Mego Museum co-conspirator Scott Adams and seeing these slick little solid boxes in person is both awe inspiring and intimidating.
I'm pretty inspired that I had the wearwithall to actually take a crazy idea and see it through but I'll be plenty intimidated when I have a garage full of a plastic replica of that very same crazy idea in the coming months.
Like any sensible boy in this situation would, I've already begun plans on a villain.
