eBoy new Blockbob Eater

eBoy has a new type of modular figure made of wood coming out. I like this more than Peecol. What does everybody think? I posted a brief interview with Kai from eBoy here: http://www.toycyte.com/sneak-peak-at-bl ... -from-eboy

I see. I guess Blockbob Eater technically is "so next fall" though. Moving the conversation back to here: http://forums.kidrobot.com/viewtopic.ph ... 96#1413396

well leave it here, since its by eboy.
these are nice too, but peecol is more affordable and more versatile.
only if they could lower the price a bit, i mean 200SUSD a piece is way too steep!

This guy is really old. The price point definitely kills any excitement for me.

I'd love to add this guy to my eboy collection, but I'm with you about the price.

That's what I really liked about PEECOL. a lot of play value, fairly inexpensive and no blind box action--can you imagine trying to get a 1/100 Roswell and ending up with 7 friends along the way? They were able to capture a lot of the Eboy characters/attitude and combine it with some kid robot spirit. I thought it was a pretty good combination.

I like what they're trying to do with Blockblob, but I can't afford it :(

I wonder why it has to be so expensive? It's not like they're using artisan wood. I guess it's the edition of 76 that makes the price so high. The price is going to be around $186.
