Well guys it's finally here! It's been another long wait and I've been dying to show this stuff off for months and months now. I definitely feel like this is some of the raddest stuff to ever come from 8BZ and I think you guys will agree. The centerpiece of all of this awesomeness definitely being the lunchbox. It was a long hard road getting those made and I almost gave up but I'm so glad I didn't. They turned out better than I even imagined and I still can't help but smile when I hold one in my hands. Such a perfect throw back to the 80's in every way.
With this release I wanted to do a mash-up of all things 80's rather than focusing on just games or just movies. And I think we did a pretty good job on that! Did a few packaging parodies and those turned out so amazingly good. Matt Skiff and I also created out very own MOTU character/toy. THRASHOR is one of my all time favorite things.
I also decided to start a "Kids Club" of sorts. The lunchbox/shirt/patches are the first of many exclusive and limited 8BZ Kids Club items to come. I'm excited to go further with this idea in the near future and make it even more fun for the die-hard fans.
Another fun thing I did this year was putting embroidered patches on some of my hats. They all turned out so amazing. Specifically the Madballs and Robocop hats. And I'm going to be doing this more from now on. Looks so rad!
HUGE thanks as always to all my artists. I couldn't have done any of this without Matt Skiff, Pitchgrim, SKUMMIE, Chad Manzo, AtomicChild, Cutty Bage, Gaunty, Johnny Crap, Michael Shantz and Cryface. Best people in the world to work with.
And thanks for the support Mintees! Check out the store and let me know what you think!
Oh and if you want a lunchbox, better act fast! They are super limited, Sadly, no one even makes plastic lumchboxes any more. So once they are gone, THEY ARE GONE.
UPDATE - GIVE'EM SOME MINTY LOVE!
