A Large Evil Corporation : Evil Vinyl Iconic Characters


After A Large Evil Corporation had amazing feedback from their Vinyl make-ups of Cornetto Trilogy (one of which is above) they have out done themselves with more iconic characters from popular culture. Everyone is bang on the money. Donald & Davey Stott I WANT asap!!! They are currently figuring out some logistics on potentially having them made on a, hopefully, much larger scale – the more you ask for them, the more likely this will happen – so if you haven’t already, go follow them on Twitter, or give them a like on Facebook.

I dont care what age you are…you gotta love Lego? Yeah? If not you will now…I  present you this amazing replica of the iconic 1962 Volkswagen camper van.

Amos Caleb Toys

After preview images of the newest addition to the Amos Toy line appeared online some time ago, the James Jarvis created Caleb has finally hit shelves in the UK. Star of his own online comic strip, ‘The Wisdom of Caleb’, he comes in 2 colourways with a selection of T-shirt prints, including a few references you might be pretty familiar with.

Caleb comes in at around 20cm tall, in white/red/blue and black/green blue and is one of my favourite vinyl releases in a long time. The ‘Sausages’ and ‘BARE’ Calebs, with their Supreme and Bape references respectively, are my particular favourites and I’m stoked to add them to my collection. James Jarvis is an illustrative genius and it’s great to see more of his work in the Amos Toys line.

Caleb is available now, online and in-store at The Chimp Store, but I’d warn you… The first batch sold out in record time, and these aren’t likely to be around for much longer, so be quick.
