I am very glad I went on vacation, but I am sad that I have not posted a new exhibit in over a month! Today we resume Larry Tremblay‘s guest exhibits with another Electric Tiki Design Teeny Weeny Mini-maquette.Continue reading →
Today’s exhibit is the second of Larry Tremblay‘s Electric Tiki Design Teeny Weeny Mini-maquette figurines. This is another exclusive, but to a store instead of a convention. Electric Tiki made Little Audrey wearing a yellow dress instead of red for Nuff Said Collectibles. It appears that store has since gone out of business, much like Electric Tiki themselves.
Back in June, I posted one of Electric Tiki Design‘s Teeny Weeny Mini-maquette figurines in response to a photo Intelligent Collector magazine posted to Facebook. One thing I did not mention in that post was that Electric Tiki made a number of limited edition variants of their Mini-maquettes.
It was almost four years ago that I posted the Casper Bendables figure and mentioned that there was a lot of merchandise released in conjunction with the 1995 live action Casper movie. Today’s exhibit is another movie item, this time a very large keychain made by Dakin, a company better known for stuffed animals. I know I would not want to carry this around in my pocket, it is larger than a golf ball!
I really must apologize. I know I said things are crazy around here, and I know I was away for a weekend to go to TerrifiCon, but it has been more than a month since I posted a new exhibit. It’s great to make improvements to the Harvey Mercheum website, such as enabling Rocket Loader, but without exhibits, there would be no Harvey Mercheum website to improve.
Well, another birthday in the books, but today I am continuing the celebration by posting one of the most recent acquisitions for the permanent collection. I did not even have this item on my want list, because it is so rare, I never thought that I had a chance at owning one. Now that I own it, I would love to rip it open and play with it!
One of the biggest news items in comics this week was about Stephen A. Geppi donating over 3,000 items from his personal collection to the Library of Congress. This was somewhat sad news to me, because these items had been on display at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum since 2006, but I never got to visit.
Apologies for being so lax in posting new exhibits recently. Today we resume the number 998 short Richie Rich Three Dimensional Stickers with a new hanger and a new sticker sheet. The hanger is orange, and features Richie daydreaming about multicolored bags of money. The sticker of the same art work is right below this image. The most interesting thing about this exhibit, however, is that this is the first item featuring the The Clown Prince of Show Biz, Jackie Jokers!
