For those who can’t get enough Tim Burton, Dark Horse Deluxe has announced new products based around his bookÂ The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories.
Springing from Burtonâ€™s sketchpads and notebooks, these charming little characters have taken on a life of their own. They are his strange little children, and although some have described them as twisted or odd, as Burton himself has observed: â€œOne personâ€™s craziness is another personâ€™s reality.â€
Dark Horse Deluxe now proudly introduces large-size vinyl versions of these characters for the collector market. While the same faithful attention to detail is present, this new 6â€ and larger size brings forward the special nuance of each individual creation, and fits very nicely into the ever-growing popularity of â€œdesigner vinylâ€ collectible toys. Three releases are planned for the end of 2009: Oyster Boy, Stain Boy, and Toxic Boy.
Be on the look out for two heat-sensitive coffee mugs, a tabbed journel, a light-up journal, cards, T-shirts, note cards and more.
