We just got word that wholesale boxes of lil ol Grateful Bear are COMPLETELY sold out, so cop the remaining polar pals from retail while you can: Kid Robot, Turntable Lab, or anywhere else toysdolls urban vinyl (what up Hof!) are sold. And send in pics of your own GB, we want to see em – chilling at a show, cracking a brew, holding a roll of Indonesian Mentos.
We’re starting to think our furry friend has a drinking problem. More flicks of Grateful Bear on the road here. Don’t forget to send yours in! If you haven’t already, adopt a GB from Kid Robot, Turntable Lab and anywhere else fine collectible toy animals reside.
GB’s still kickin up dust on the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour, listening to flamenco, drinking cognac, and entering a whale’s vagina (San Diego). He’s probably doing all sorts of crazy shit in your town too, so be sure to send in pics of your own Grateful Bear adventures. We’ll run em every week. Also just FYI: Kid Robot has sold out of ALL wholesale boxes of the bear, so your only bet is to buy at wherever, store you see em, because when they are gone they are ALL GONE.
GB’s been all over the place this past week – posted up at his release party, hitting the airways, and getting busy on the road with A-Trak and friends for the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. Joshua Lekach even caught him cooling out in the freezer, as pictured above. Send in your own sightings and we’ll post the best ones every week! You can still buy a bear of your own at Kidrobot, Turntable Lab and wherever fine ursine products are sold.
Next Wednesday (July 1st) following the “Grateful Bear” signing / release event at the Kidrobot store in Soho, A-Trak, Dust La Rock and the rest of the fam take the celebration over to Trouble & Bass’ new party No Escape From NY downstairs at Annex. Our own Kingdom will be providing tunes along with the T&B selectors (including birthday girl Star Eyes!), there will be giveaways from both labels – and maybe a surprise or two?!?! Don’t miss out! Free with RSVP, full details over at Facebook.
Your eyes don’t deceive you – yes, that is the furry creature Dust La Rock dreamed up for various A-Trak projects made real. Or as real as an 8 inch plastic toy can be! Kidrobot will be releasing this limited edition (only 500 pieces made for the world!) “Grateful Bear” figure – complete with gold-plated necklace, leather cuff, cotton sweatband, snow-capped igloo, fitted baseball hat and wayfarers – on July 2nd at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers. As a bonus, A-Trak and Dust will be signing the figure a day earlier at the Kidrobot store in NYC.
