Throwback Thursday: Marvel Phunnys
It’s anther Throwback Thursday post by our favorite..Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking.
There has never been a better time to be a comic book fan than right now. Super heroes dominate the movies every major television station has shows centered around them, and comic conventions are so popular that barely a weekend goes by without one happening somewhere in the world. With popularity at an all time high one of the best side effects is the massive amount of amazing products to own. For instance, how about all of the super soft Marvel Phunnys that Kidrobot has released. You could fill one of those plastic kiddie pools with these to create the perfect lounge chair to watch tv. Or if you’re fandom is way more reasonable, then you could just use them to make your own plush versions of the films, upload them to the Internet, and be world famous!!! My ideas of “reasonable” might be a little different I suppose.

"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
