Ten Questions About The Great PickleBaby (AKA Halloween PickleBaby 2014)
Lcfr - Linus and Charlie Brown from the great Charles Shultz! I love Halloween and year after year, since I was a lil’ kid, poor ol Carlie Brown gets the shit kicked outta’ him by my favorite holiday. Too many eyes in the ghost sheet, rocks instead of candy, best friend’s the nutter in the pumpkin patch etc etc. I figured a good Halloween hug from your friendly neighborhood space alien might just cheer him and Linus up. Then I figured I should hold open adoptions and give a bunch of people a chance at a Halloween PickleBaby Hug!!!
Lcfr - This release is limited to about a “box of puppies”!!!
SS - Huh?
Lcfr - Well mabbe’ a few more or less! See the photo? Looks just like a box of puppies!!!! Cute as hell right? W/ out all that poop covered newsprint and empty beer bottles!
Lcfr - Yeah, PB’s are very responsible recyclers. Puppies get drunk and crap all over the newspaper and then leave the whole mess on the kitchen floor! Picklebabys LOVE good beer and recycling!!!
Lcfr - He’s a little less than a banana tall, but bigger than a beer - which is a tad taller than a Scott Tolleson’ super secret gold DeadBeet, which in turn is a smidge taller than Brandt Peter’s amazing “Pierrot” Stingy Jack. Those three can throw a HELL of a party w/ just a banana and a beer!!
SS - Pierrot the French Mime!
Lcfr - I though it was sparkling water?!?
SS - Ok, so moving along… Let’s try color selection and perhaps manufacturing material?
Lcfr - Black and orange Halloween colored all swirled and marbled in vinyl by those mysterious genius space aliens living under Japan. That’s where the highest quality sofubi comes from!!!
Lcfr - Why do you think the technology is so good there!?!
SS - Space Aliens?
Lcfr - Space Aliens!!!!
SS - Historically your space alien has been gobbled up before the wider world knows about it. What’s the deal? Is it a like a “Bill Hicks UFO Tour”? Which, like UFOs, they only appear in small out of the way towns in front of a handful of drunken locals?
Lcfr - Well the first few releases were exploratory scouts - random sightings. I still drop some of the older ones on the site from time to time. However there'll be more sightings and close encounters as we work our way up to full on PickleBaby INVASION!!! #PBInvasion Even now there are plenty of huggy lil’ dudes in the works w/ lots of cool toy retailer/site specific exclusives coming and more being added (those that need it please hit me up if you want specific participation info - email@example.com). More general public release info soon!!!
Lcfr - http://houseofleecifer.bigcartel.com It’s closed right now, but come this Friday October 24th - say around “noonish”, it’ll be chock full of The GREAT PICKLEBABY!!!! I’ll dump a few more in off and on until Halloween so everyone gets a chance. So if it say’s “sold out” try back again later.
SS - Price?
Lcfr - $60 plus tax and shipping.
Lcfr - Was that like 10 questions?
SS - Close enough!! Thanks Leecifer and we’re outty!!!!
