Giant Robot Buttons UP!

Let's hear it for GIANT ROBOT webstore. Once again they ride to the rescue of this Uglydoll fan.  They have all the buttons and walked me through the process of getting a complete set at 1.00 each!

Here's what you do whether you want a few or all of them.

Click here.   Then when you get through the order process you'll see the comment section.  Tell them there which buttons you want and they will do their BEST to get you those buttons!

They are so friendly and helpful at GR.  Their cool factor is at least 1000!  Aaron helped me via email, and even lowered the weight of the buttons so that the shipping cost is affordable for a tiny item like this.
If you have any special needs for your order, I highly recommend the email contact.  They are prompt and go the extra mile.
Thanks to Aaron and Giant Robot I will soon be in possession of ALL the Ugly Buttons plus a few more to give friends.

UN Button It!

Ok Badgebomb.  UN Button It!  Let's have it.  Bring on the buttons. Roll em out.  The anticipation has reached uncharted territory.  (please?)

Uglydoll Buttons x 3 at Hot Topic

Uglydoll Buttons from Hot Topic.
These will not be part of the soon-to-be-released Uglydoll Buttons from Badgebomb. Nope. These are something else entirely.
And I have it on very good authority that they are strictly a Hot Topic item and will likely NOT show up in the Uglydoll store etc.  In fact, they are not even on the Hot Topic website.

Knowing some of my Uglydoll buddies are hurting for these buttons but do not live near a HT store, I went to the mall an bought the few they had. I plan to give these to my Uglydoll buddies and boardies who want them as much as I did, but can't get their hands on one.
So to my Ugly friend in Munich....guess what!!!! You're getting a button!

The crew at our Olympia WA Hot Topic is the best.  I called ahead and Mike had a nice pile of Uglydoll buttons for me when I went in.  Plus he let me rummage through  his cookie jar to find all the small Uglydoll pins. And he loves Uglys too!  Mike. You rock!

A Win-Win situation as Domo gives his back-up umbrella to his best buddy, Babo's Bird.

But where did Babo's Bird get those cool slippers?

Look Out Domo

Look out Domo!  I think Babo's Bird has his eye on your umbrella.  And Uglydolls have a way of getting what they want!

Thanks to my friend Ted for sending the pic.

Hat Wash Day

Hat Wash Day doesn't come around all that often, but sometimes the compass of cleanliness lands on your hat. When it's Fea Bea's turn our Ugly Stick becomes more of a Worry Stick.  He follows his hat along all day from soaking in the suddsie water to swinging in the warm, breezy air.  While we feel his angst at the separation from his beloved hat, we also admire his unwavering focus and patience during the drying process.
We found him sitting just inside with his eyes fixed on his hat as it hung on the porch to dry.  He never looks away.  We queried his Worry Stick side to hear his concerns. Squirrels. Birds. Bandits. Mad Hatters.
If that hat doesn't dry soon, we'll have to call in another Ugly Stick to give poor Fea Bea a couple of revitalizing raps to restore his happy.
Garden Wage hasn't left his side.  He says he can relate.

Just placed my order for the new Limited Edition US Open Big Toe.  

You will also find Little Trunko and Clip-on Ox in the Team Uglydoll US Open line-up. I may not be able to resist getting the entire team.

Get them here.

Trexi Inside the Box

I'm back.  I opened the box!  Always do.

Much to my surprise there was a two-sided 7.5 x 4.5 card inserted in the back of the box.  Big Noupa portrait on one side, and group scene on the other.  It's the coolest thing.  I'll be putting that between glass so I can flip at will to see either side.

Oh yeah. The Trexi's are awesome too. You can pivot the top half of heads to bring the battle damage face forward.

Trexi Noupa Battle Damage

Got a fun package in the mail today.  Trexi's!

This is a flashback item for me.  I saw it some years ago when I started collecting Noupa, but passed on it because I wanted to put my Noupa dollars in the big Noupa set.

Fortunately for me, Millo31 at the Uglydoll Forum posted a link to a few Trexi's that were still available...(but now gone. Sorry.)

I love the story behind Noupa. Noupa is in love.  His  girl is the leader of an underground movement to stop evil Security Monkey from global domination.   Together they save the world.

You know how I am about Uglydoll packaging.  Nothing has changed in that regard.  The box itself is  entertainment all on it's own.  Colorful David Horvath art peeks around every corner.
But there's more.  There's a philosophy that speaks to me.  The box top reads, "Forget violence...They are ready for that. Just stop listening to them.  They fear that the most.  Ooo la la!"

I am not alone.
