We are on fire with our releases! Now to add to the fun, we have released The Simpsons x Kidrobot Flaming Moe’s Medium Art Figure. Here to say a little something extra to make the glass half full…totally full is our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking!
How many times have you thought of something that is super genius and the world needs only to never do anything with your idea? Kidrobot wants to see you live your dreams the way The Simpson’s bartender Moe did when he invented his signature drink, The Flaming Moe. Well, actually Homer invented it, but Moe had the vision to turn it into the huge hit it became. What good is the best drink the world has ever known if no one gets to taste it? I wouldn’t drink it myself, because anything that is that easy to set on fire kinda freaks me out. But then again I do enjoy consuming a certain brand of soda that can literally strip paint from a car, so maybe my choices in liquid refreshment aren’t the best.
This medium vinyl figure celebrates the gravely voiced proprietor turned beverage revolutionary before everything went horribly wrong. I won’t spoil it for you in case you’ve been living in a cave for the last 30 years trying to dodge those student loan payments, but everyone learns a valuable lesson when you put profits over friendship, or something. I’m not the bed at life lessons.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
