Eric So Sprite figures:

(viewed 6277 times)
another way in which i'm turning the page - i'm cleaning out my closet.

in the late 90's i got into collecting vinyl figures from Hong Kong toy designers like Michael Lau (Gardener) and Eric So, and UK guys like Pete Fowler (Monsterism) and James Jarvis (Silas / AMOS), amongst loads of Kubricks and other such things. i managed to acquire some pretty rare pieces.

anyway, to cut a long, boring story very short, i'm selling up. most of this is probably going onto ebaY, but if anyone is into this stuff (alfie, bmal etc.) and interested in putting in bids on stuff beforehand, just drop me a line. i've got *alot of stuff to sell.

these figures are a set of eight that Eric So created as part of a Sprite promotion. they were never available to buy - you had to collect ringpulls to get hold of them! i have them all with boxes intact, so, you know what to do if interested...

i have an intense dislike for football culture, but on Saturday I was talked into watching a local derby by dontbelievethehype.

pink champage in plastic cups:

today our company celebrated a good first half quarter (and why not?), because so many targets have already been reached, breached, and in some cases, thoroughly smashed, notably by the recently promoted RickyGee. he silenced all tongues with an excellent performance, and so we toasted him with very hi-fi pink champagne, in very lo-fi plastic cups. congrats to you brother. cheers.

*slightly larger

i saw this guy in trafalgar square, totally in his own world, just dancing and singing to his hearts content. plenty of people stopped to check him out, but just as many strolled on by, without so much as a glance. you can see his expression a bit better in the bigger pic.
