|What is up bros and bro-ettes? I think I've
f*ckin died and gone to f*ckin heaven. Look at this fine hunka-hunk-of plastic in
the iconic shape of the man himself, mini-Elvis.
Girls often say that "good things come in small packages.." but they're just lying to ya bro... unless they were talking about Furi Furi's new Elvis Aloha toys... then um... they're right... it is good.... just not when they are um... talking bout... yah... yah I know... it's cool... you got a small... huh... ok... back to Elvis?
Furi Furi Company of places unknown, only cuz I can't ready japa-germanese... or whatever the f*ck their website is written in.... anyway Furi Furi, a design company, has paired with PPFM a plastics manufacturer to um.. manufacture.. elvis toys! Available June 9th... golden weekend or some such nonsense... 1000 made with aloha shirt... 100 made with skull shirt...
Yah, that's right... this Elvis fig comes wearing a little black skull shirt... so aggro... so punk... Is Elvis Emo?
|Furi Furi designs all kinds of criz-ap for all kinds of
meglomaniacal companies.... like McDonalds... They've designed a
"Japanese-style" Ronald McDonald as well as new designs for Birdy, the
Hamburgler, and Grimace for American kids.
Is it just me or does Grimace look really cool here, if not slightly high.... im not sure if that's a cup or a pipe of some sort... hmm... you tell me...
In any case Furi Furi designs some really rad stuff... but it doesn't end with Elvis and Mickey-D's... they've got a line of clothes called "Girls Power Manifesto"... how deep is that?...
|Furi Furi also designed a really rad Terminator 3 logo for the new
Arnold flick coming out this summer... just a guest artist... but pretty rad design work.
And a line of soft vinyl toys for "Electronic Virus"... just click on the image to the right to go to the "Electronic Virus" website and check out what exactly this is all about... cuz I can't tell ya. All I know is it includes a super cool pirate character named Frankie.
|And from what I can decipher on that website... there are about
three or four different paint variants of Frankie and friends... at some of the stores
that the variants are made for... you canget this really rad t-shirt like the one on the
left with your soft vinyl character. Too cool!
Furi Furi busts out some really cool stuff... They put out books... toys... websites... clothes... art shows...
Furi designed a game for the Nintendo Gamecube called "Giftpia" and a line of
stuff called sima sima.. i can't tell..
But it's all about the Elvis in the end. Only 1000 Elvis Soft Vinyl's being made... available the "Golden Weekend"... is all I could decipher from the Furi Furi website... now I just need to find out how to get ahold of them... especially the rocking skull one!
