Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas never fail to astound our fans with their in depth characters and particular attention to details. This time, adding to the story is the Lucy Curious medium Figure, officially available online at www.Kidrobot.com with the rest of the collectibles. Here to add his two cents on the figure is our favorite, Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking!
With the help of Kidrobot, Brandt Peters and Kathie Olivas recently introduced us to the world of Dark Harbor with a mini series full of characters from the tale. Now their heroine, Lucy Curious, is getting her own medium figure that further expands upon the story already set in motion. Here’s a brief synopsis of what has happened thus far:
Lucy Curious is a mysterious girl on a mysterious adventure to find her dear lost friend, Lord Strange. He went out to sea to find her when her boat failed to reach harbor, but hasn’t been seen since. She washed up on the shoreline soon after her ship was destroyed and when he is nowhere to be found begins her quest to track his whereabouts.
The ocean is a place of wonder and danger and Lucy has found a friend in this seahorse (who also doubles as a reliable mode of transportation). Will she find her friend or will she find herself in a world she can’t escape from?
Available now in the standard and Kidrobot exclusive colorways at www.kidrobot.com.

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
