With a Demcrat House and Senate, Obama will be be able to do more than "hope"... God forbid.

Joey's daddy said...

those are so cool.
are they for sale anywhere or just a fun project?

Jeremy said...

Are these for sale? if so... where?

JohnK said...

They will be for sale. Keep posted and I will anounce where to get them.

jhbmw007 said...

I think the Obama one is going to sell 3x as fast as the others- awesome work!

Mitch L said...

They are great! So detailed!
I would buy them! I could use some hope.

Brian Romero said...

I can't wait to get my filthy hands on these toys!

Payo said...

The mottled skin on MaveriCain is an excellent touch. And the packages are teh awesome.

Can't wait to try to buy them.

Michael Turek said...

these are amazing sculptures.

Jorge Garrido said...

My favourite toy/candidate is/was Hillary. Her head reminds me of Time For Beany. I love the colours, especially on her face and hair. The use of sharp angles in 3D reminded me of Madagascar.

I feel you were too easy on John McCain, as you made him look like a thinking human being. But a great depiction no matter how much stupider he is in real life.

Barack Obama? Eh, I like the guy, but I'd rather give money to you for these toys of him than to his campaign, what with his recent flip-flops on FISA and public financing.

You should do a series on TV News Rage-a-holics. Colbert, O'Reilly, Cafferty and my favourite newsman, Keith Olbermann.

Taco Wiz said...

I'll buy a Hilary and a Barrack.

Joseff!!1 said...

R2K said...

So cool : )

koreymartin said...

Are this by John Kricfalusi, most commonly known for his Ren and Stimpy creation?

koreymartin said...

...wait a second...

Chip Butty said...

Is McCain's ass detachable from the missile?

Dan Spilatro said...

WHEN???? WHEN????? WHEN!!!!!!!!!

lastangelman said...

Oh man, they are so funny and the best damn packaging between Alaska and Key West. Wow, McCain has got Jimmy, Wally and Sody on the box! Yay! Super Fun Time On The Red State Blue Coat Bus - don't get thrown under it kids! - hooray!

Ryan G. said...

These are sweet!

trevor said...

I especially love the liver spots on McCain! Excellent detail!

Can't wait for these to go up for sale!

- trevor.

crazyharmke said...

these are amazing!
love the packages too ^_^

The Butcher said...

I don't like how you potrayed white people in these toys. Especially the black white guy. You racist!

Tone down the features and maybe I'll buy one. Maybe you should make them look all anime, like Boondocks! That would be swiggity sa-weet yo!

Seriously though, they look awesome. I hope you can get them on the shelves soon.

Michelle Klein-Hass said...

I look forward to collecting the whole set!

I was telling Jim that the next target should be Steve Jobs and Steve Ballmer. Steve Jobs would be for people who want to take out their Mac frustrations, and Steve Ballmer would be for people who want to take out their Windows frustrations.

Steve Jobs should have his "uniform" of Black Turtleneck and jeans on, and have a latte in one hand and an iPhone or reasonable facsimile in another. He should have a blissed-out expression on his face.

Steve Ballmer should be in full bellow...watch the "Dance Monkeyboy" video to get a feel for what I mean. He should be holding a broken chair, because Ballmer is known for breaking furniture at Microsoft, particularly when Google does something to annoy him.

Alternately these two could be done in foam-rubber "squishy ball" material, with a coating of vinyl over it. Actually the "squishy ball" treatment would have been good for Obama, Clinton and McCain as well, so you can throttle them at will.

I have a squishy LAPD police car that I tend to throttle when the helicopters fly too low and wake me up. Ironically it was a SWAG item I got...from the LAPD.

Nick H said...

Woot. Can't wait to get a set of those. Hope you got a fast boat from China lined up!

akira said...

can you say, "COLLECTOR'S ITEMS"!!!!!
making history once again with political merchandising!

hopefully you'll have these ready in time for the conventions, they'd sell like crazy there! i'd like to have a little cart selling these outside of the conventions, damn everyone would be getting them!

i love the mccain face paint job... man i really wish there was a Ron Paul one, though. Ron Paul and Hilary were the only real men running this year!

Jack Ruttan said...

I think celebs in general (as well as politicians) could use a bit of being poked-at via caricature.

I'd love to see Paris and Brittany figures, a raging Russel Crowe or Mel Gibson, plus all of those media types. Maybe some legal problems with likenesses?

craig clark said...

I want them ALL! Excellent job you guys!

Alex Whitington said...

These are fantastic.

Jim Rockford said...

These are a roit!
I like the Obama box..it pretty much sums up his entire act.

Empty pretty sounding words like Hope,change,Wish.

As they say wish in one hand and well you know...

Jim Rockford said...

That bottom photo of Hillarys head chopped off brightened my day..was there any caramel corn in it?

PCUnfunny said...

These toys are priceless. I love that McCain one. Another great idea would be to have McCain come with a Vitenamese prison camp toture fun set.

Harveyjames said...

These are excellent. I want to buy a Barack figure for my mum!

The best of luck with these. I hope the Barack toy is a best-seller!

I posted this on digg to help generate interest. lets try to get this on the front page.

Yas said...

what trips me out is Hillary has the same figure as my mom... at least according to you she does.. lol

Kali Fontecchio said...

Happiness!

The very best part of this whole thing is the xmas picture with all the animals. Primarily the wombat and platypus are genius.

PCUnfunny said...

Wow, this has to be the greatest year of my life. Batman, Indy, turning 21, being here in Panama, George Liquor in October, and James Bond in November. I have had one too many joy-gasms.

Taco Wiz said...

I'm gonna pre-order an Obama and/or Hilary RIGHT NOW! I still need to choose. But first, how much do they cost?

Shaun said...

sweet, sweet liquor

Fulle Circle Productions said...

This could not be more exciting!

Vince M. said...

I haven't seen toys this well-made since the last time YOU made toys! Can't wait for these to be available for purchase.

Great job, John.

David said...

I would like to have all of them! Including the Tenacious D toys! Speaking of which, where could we buy these?

SleighBoy said...

John, you do great work. If only there was a Ron Paul figure, then I'd buy for sure!

Jason Barnes said...

HAHAHAHHAHA amazing.
those package colors are sick!!!!

Rudy Tenebre said...

Sorry baby, but those sculptures don't do the drawings justice, old shitwad Rudy here again...

Bob said...

way to go!!!! and I really enjoy the wb retakes

Roberto González said...

Some more inking. Am I getting a little better?

Michael said...

Are these figures poseable? Do they have any joints?

Obama looks like he has arm joints but I can't tell.

Please answer soon!

Jake the Animator said...

Hey John!
I've been helping Amid with his project and in so do I've found your Preston Blair lessons from May 2006.

HOW DID I MISS THESE????
So starting last Thursday I put it upon myself to work on the assignments every day. I'm posting my scrawlings regularly on my blog named "Magic Nose Goblins."
-jake
p.s. - R&S made me a man.

Freckled Derelict said...

Hot Damn, I want em all!!!!!! They turned out amazing.

James Sutton said...

It's like I just saw an episode.

WOW.

Jeff Pidgeon said...

Hey John - the toys looks awesome! Great job! I'll be getting a couple when the time comes. Tenacious D, too.

I wrote to the email address, but didn't get a response. How is the pre-ordering going to work?

Ineedanewname said...

Will you be making a Sarah Palin doll?

The Super Palin dolls that have just been released are not as good as yours.

How about here holding a bazooka and hockey stick.

any other ideas...?

MrLeoC said...

Hi John,
I am interested in converting one of your comic stories to 3D (the kind of 3D that you view with red/cyan glasses). This would be done at my expense, and I would be able to show you the work in progress to ensure that you are happy with the results. I am interested in using the final piece (a page or one of the panels) as a folio piece for my 3D production studio: 3Dimages.com.au.
The comic book I'd like to convert is "The Turtle Food Collector" (featuring Johnny the Idiot Boy).
I think that covers the basics. I can provide you with more info if you are interested or OK with the idea.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Maheanuu Tane said...

My Set of Three arrived last week! I believe that they are the ultimate collectors items of 2008.

One thing for sure, they will be the only ones in French Polynesia and they will NOT be for sale.

Thanks John, they're better than excellent!

Bravo Zulu!

Just this old chief's 2¢
