LEGO They Might Be BrickHeadz

MusicTMBGVia the official They Might Be Giants Twitter: They Might Be BrickHeadz. The rock duo is presented in an older incarnation, younger, and with a bluebird. Thousands of signatures are needed for LEGO to pay it any mind, and it's been getting a couple hundred signatures since I loaded the page and hit reload when it was time to write this up.

It's a neat idea - I'm curious if it has enough appeal to make plastic!

Kaiju Big Battel Tooled, Tested

KickstarterPheydenVia Kaiju Big Battel's Kickstarter: Test shots. Brown-colored test shots of the figures are on display... and they're not bad. I'm glad I supported these.

They write: "Also was told we just might be able to squeeze in some time at the factory and have these by New Year's, cross your fingers." That may still mean it takes 4-6 weeks for the boat to land in the USA, but hey, sooner is better than later. Original plans called for June.
