My newest vinyl creation is nearly here! Inspired heavily by Krang and the Dick Brain from Invaders From Mars with some random shapes and orbs tossed in for good measure. It's just under 2 inches long and just over 1 inch tall and produced in the highest quality child safe vinyl by Unbox Industries. 

 

One of the most exciting parts for me is that even though it is factory produced hollow vinyl it will still be the most affordable toy I've ever made. Thankfully Unbox loves to help make toys that everyone can afford so unpainted versions of Plorp should only cost around 10 bucks while most other companies sell similar sized vinyl figures for 30 to 40 bucks.

 

Your first chance to snag one should be sometime this month!

First online release will be this Saturday at noon PST through the little rubber guys store.

 

Three marbled colors to choose from. Only 10 bucks each! No limit on quantity so no one feels bad about the shipping cost. Free Plorp sticker with each one purchased and each color has it's own header. All the marbled groups are still very unique as no two figures are exactly alike. The whole monster is about 2 inches wide. This will be your best chance to snag one and the only big release there will be possibly for an entire year. The pics are pretty clear but the first one is very hard to capture. Those are almost solid red with touched of green jolly rancher color mixed in. The purple are mixed with yellow and a little flesh/pink. The other and mixed with lemon colored vinyl and a little pink and white too.

I'm definitely feeling a bit skeptical on what constitutes a big release for these things. Especially if there was no limit on quantities.

I'm definitely feeling a bit skeptical on what constitutes a big release for these things. Especially if there was no limit on quantities.

 

There were less than 100 available but for me that's a pretty big amount. 

 

Didn't want to limit them to 1 per person because it sucks for people overseas to spend more for shipping than the toy actually costs itself. Especially for something mini-figure sized.

 

I'm just happy I was able to sell a factory produced vinyl toy for $10 bucks thanks to Eric helping me get headers and stickers done and Karis helping get everything packed and shipped. 

 

One of the main reasons it was affordable is because I let Unbox just do their thing with it. They picked colors and amounts and sent me some and kept some for overseas convention tables. So I don't have any real control but I don't mind at all because it lets me sell these for $10 bucks instead of $20 or $30 like everyone else. These aren't solid injection toys like OMFG or GLYOS stuff made by the hundreds or thousands. These are hollow vinyl that are poured just like the big vinyl toys.

I just packed and shipped all orders. I held one of each back in case the store glitched like last time. I just put them back in stock.

One of each available. Go now!

I was having trouble with storeenvy on my phone. Was cart jacked 3 times. The purple sold out first, then red and lastly the candy apple. Ah well. Hopefully better luck next time.
