Underground Toys, who make the lions share of GB merch these days (mugs, glasses, cufflinks, keychains, and of course plush toys, etc.) have revealed their upcoming plush Slimer at New York’s Toy Fair. Like last year’s plush Stay-Puft, the Slimer comes in a medium (approx. 10″) size that plays “movie sounds” when you squeeze him (the Stay-Puft played the theme song) and a small, plush sized, non-singing dolls with a clip, suitable for your backpack, etc.
The big surprise, in most every sense, are the large sized dolls, both for Slimer and Stay-Puft. These look more like 15″ or bigger, but just like their tiny cousins, they feature “movie sounds.” Check the photos below to have a look and stay tuned!
Regularly $14.99, it’s on sale for $9.99. All you have to do is go to www.eonentertainment.com and enter the code CHR11GS in the box above the Get Slimed DVD cover.
Here’s some information about the documentary from their website:
Go behind the scenes into the making of one of the most iconic and recognizable creatures from any film. Special effects legend Steve Johnson takes us back to 1982 and talks about the creation of Onionhead (later known as Slimer).
We couldn’t leave this DVD alone. We’ve packed more into it than we ever planned!
15 minute interview with the man who made Slimer, Steve Johnson
Over 200 behind the scenes photos of Slimer, the Librarian, and more
Over 40 minutes of raw, behind the scenes video straight from Steve’s archives
Art Asylum has posted two pics – front and back – of their soon-to-be-released light-up Slimer. Basically a thinner shell version of the Slimer piggy-bank they released in 2009 with a battery powered light inside, the light-up Slimer would look cool on my desk.
As well, Art Asylum is saying we can expect to see some of the upcoming RGB line of Minimates at February’s New York Toy Fair, at the latest. So, stay tuned for more on those.
In a pinch, a ghosthead can put up a poster or even these inexpensive (in every sense of the word) decorations from Rubies (no-ghost and Slimer.)
But a serious ghosthead with serious skills can come up with some serious decorations.
Check out this amazing Slimer wall sculpture that Jason Kisner has made. Latex rubber, and individual teeth (all decked out with black-light paint), this bad-ass display is 33″ (the arms alone are each 18″ long)! And he has his own slime “dripping” down the wall.
Jason gave me a sneak-peak at his latest project, and it’s a doozy – hopefully we can show you more about it later. In the meantime, oogle these pics of Slimer he sent.
