Treats from Brian

Brian Romero stayed up all night designing these boxes. He's on his way to the Con now and I'm sure most of you are, so maybe you won't even see these.



Barack is done, but I don't know if I wanna give it all away just yet.

Awesome designs! I'm warnin' ya though: now that Hilary is out of the race, expect her to get low sales.

Nice work.

...I'm gonna be honest here. I wouldn't of known that was Bill had I not know it was Hillary.

It struck me more as a Tony Randall/Bill Murray combination.

From one designer to another, these are great looking designs, Brian (and John)!

David said...

Hillary is hilarious!!

Ryan G. said...

These are sweet! Where could we get one?

Timefishblue said...

Tons of people have always and will always passionately hate Hilary, and a lot of her supporters are so into her that they said they'd rather vote for McCain than Obama. All hope is not lost.

Thats like the best Barack caricature i've seen. the newspaper political comics will get the likeness but it's really repulsive and here it's appealing too.

Jeremy said...

beautiful work! I really like these box designs!

Well done!

Ted said...

I like the packaging, but I don't think Cindy McCain is that stacked...

Timefishblue said...

By the time the toys come out, I'm sure his new wife will be.

Phantom Spitter said...

When? When?! WHEN will these become available?!! Besides at the Comicon, that is.

Dan Spilatro said...

That picture of hillary's ass as a text bubble is so funny. As soon as it caught my eye I started cracking up.

David Germain said...

That's some great packaging. I especially love that Bill Clinton caricature. Although I do believe he is much more overweight than that.

Where's the Obama toy's packaging? Are you afraid of some sort of a backlash similar to the recent New Yorker cover?

Josh Latta said...

How big are these toys?

Jim Rockford said...

These came out really nice!

I especially like the box designs for the Clinton doll and the realistic holes from "sniper fire",the George Liqour gag is great too.

I see Jimmy's riding shotgun with McCain on the double talk express.
Who is the chick with the nice rack in the bus along with Wally man?? I know its not Sody.

Cant wait to see the box for Obama.

Now if there was just some way to get you to spill the beans about the King Of Toylands "secret" suprise!

Jim Rockford said...

Is the "secret" suprise the name of the guy who commisioned these toys? and is the king of toyland a caricature of that person?

Gabriele_Gabba said...

Oh man! These designs are awesome! I think the 2D REALLY enhances the package and the choice of colors is perfect!
