You're very welcome Dan. I'm glad you like the pics so far. While I'm here, I can't forget about the Funko Sleestak. They had a few versions, especially my favorite, the Glow In The Dark variation.

Ha ha, those Sleestaks are cool.

The Uni plush is interesting.  The Lugosi does looks really cool considering the artwork they used, I'm surprised.
Looks like they are based on the most recent Stock art versions of them, like the Jigglers.

It definitely is the stock art, which is why I am surprised these turned out so well, especially Dracula.  Perhaps the art bears a closer resemblance to Lugosi than we ever thought.   :P

Oh, if you guys have never done the Build-a-Bear thing, you're in for a treat! It's like being Dr. Frankenstein without the electricity!  I can see the General now screaming It's alive.....

I think you'll have a good time Mike

I remember getting my daughter a stuffed rabbit there for her birthday.  The girl asked if both my wife and I both wanted to put a heart in it.  I looked at her solemnly and said  "That's just wrong"  No, no Frankenstein monster mutant rabbits for my daughter on her birthday.

Some unbelievable shots that hopefully will show the sheer size of this show.


The first thing that you see is this huge ToyFair banner welcoming you.


walking up the stairs with butterflies in your stomach knowing full well what you are about to see.

I haven't seen them yet and I've been in and out of stores quite a bit lately. I even went to a couple of cons and so far notta. If I happen to see them I'll post here.

Looks like the only way you can get them is if you happen to live close enough to one of these "stuff your own animal" places, and if they happen to carry the line.  This might be something that will be more available around Halloween?  No matter, these things are pretty darn expensive - you are paying for the novelty activity of building your own character, not just a plush toy.

But aside from stuffing, these don't seem to offer many building options.  Their costumes are what they are.  I guess you could stick a brain in Frank's head.

What sort of price range are they in general, thanks.

I went on their site and it looks like you can order them, but the Monsters were not in the list.  When I get some time I'll see if I can email customer service.
