    Hey why not, Sesame is producing pro war "educational" specials and having Elmo's dad go off to fight wars.

    Now as far as parody law...well...I mean Palisades did release Kermit Indiana Jones and a Muppet R2D2(MAMMA) But straight up Batman and Robin, R2 and C3PO, and Bert and Ernie? These are not parodies.

    Thats like if Kubrick never asked for the licences of the franchises they make, which is a lot of popular(and some obscure franchises)

    I do not believe sature can cover these.

    Well... That's rully up to the various entities' lawyers and Ken to sort out. Which is wy I kinda fear the future of the Bert and Ernie and Indiana Jones Smart Bombs Duo-Packs won't be sunny if you know what I mean. But there's the rest of the planned potential lineups for that franchise and of course, the one that's commanding greater interest among the community over at the CMX boards... KBZ! Have you seen these things? Seriously, you should.

    Yea i do agree there isn't much that is actually parodied. It's just the character likeness on a bomb. I get the message of the pop culture icon on the bomb, but then who wants a bomb? It doesn't do anything. I think the idea for the Kockblockerz is ok (although the name is awful once you've laughed for the initial 0.2 seconds), kinda a Block figure Garbage Pail Kids, but it needs proper marketing resources. I admire him for having the balls to do his own thing, but then his talent is not getting the attention it should with him not being at one of the major toy companies.

    Congrats Foodie. Thats awsome. There was a Gobo puppet going off too. I meant to post about it... i dunno if i ended up doing it or forgot tho. I do however remember trying to send you a message on it but your mailbox is packed. It was created by Muppetmanican. Same fellow that created Wembley awhile back. It looked great!

    Maybe if we have an all MC event you can bring it for us to see in person.

    Yay! Gobo's here!

    Just to let whoever's interested know, I got the Gobo prototype yesterday. I reattached his bum leg and he's wonderful! Hopefully I'll get some photos of him soon. :smirk:

    Heh heh. Yes. I didn't pay for it though. I made an offer to have the Gobo prototype as payment for artwork and some one took me up on it. :smirk:

    It's not really a toy though. WAAAAAY too fragile.
  15. Foodie Active Member

    It came off somewhere along the line. It said it was glued on in the auction description though so it wasn't a suprise. I used some epoxy clay and re-attached it. :smirk:
  16. Foodie Active Member


    Ah! So that's what happened. :smirk:
