Friends are the Best

Virgil brought his wee Wage friend January along for the day.  January is having such a good time watching, meeting, and greeting that he may become a constant companion.  Virgil admires January's natural flow with people, who seem more likely to speak to wee Wage than Virgil. It's a curiosity, when you consider  the massive charms of the Abima family.

Make Room for Uglydoll x Funko

Make room on your Uglydoll collectible shelves. Uglydoll and Funko got together and made these funky, funny, squat little figures of our favorite characters, Wage, Ox, Babo, Ice-bat, and Batty Shogun.

Once again, following the Ugly Brick Road has lead me to a new experience in toys. I'd never heard of Funko, but now that Uglydoll has joined the line-up, I may have to pick up some of their other amazing pieces. Funko has a nicely endowed website with a Forum of devoted fans and collectors.  Some were unaware of Uglydoll, and I was unaware of Funko, so we'll all have loads of newness to enjoy.

Cool looking window boxes make these just that much more desirable.
Mr. and Mrs. Kasoogi's investigative work on the Funko site makes me suspect these will be 3.75 inches tall and somewhere between 7-12 bucks each, with possible articulation. They are part of their Pop Vinyl collection along with Micky House,  V for Vendetta figure, Tinker Bell and more. Sweet!

My next investigative task is to discover a release date.

A Moment Between Friends

Little bits of magic happen all the time.  It happened for these two best friends many years ago when they first met.  It happened again when they came to live with us in their forever home.

And it happened again tonight when Wedgehead found you could connect Halloween with Christmas using a simple plug!

These two old friends know how to live. They know how to enjoy a moment, how so share it, and how precious it is. It's all in the connections.
