Throwback Thursday: South Park A.W.E.S.O.M.-O Medium Figure!

July 13, 2017

Welcome to another Kidrobot THRRRRRRROW BACK THURSDAY! The Kidrobot x South Park A.W.E.S.O.M.E.-O
 There are two take always from the South Park episode that debuted A.W.E.S.O.M.-O to the world.  The first is that you should never trust a robot, especially one that magically shows up on your door step.  No matter how innocent they seem their intentions are never in your best interest.  The second is that digging up dirt on someone may unearth something terribly embarrassing about yourself, like a secret video of you dressed as a famous pop star dancing in your backyard.  Oh, and no robot is ever supposed to fart.  So I guess that’s three life lessons packed into one episode.
    Kidrobot has paid the ultimate tribute to the robot with the best movie ideas ever with this medium vinyl figure.  Lift up his square head and reveal his true identity as one Eric Cartman, South Park’s resident trouble maker.  While he may be made out of plastic, I wouldn’t divulge my secrets around him.  You can never be too careful about the events surrounding Spring Break 2012.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj

Rejects Art Toy Figures by One-Eyed GirlQ & 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
