i'll bought the peecols cause i like them...they're unique in eboys ways of seeing toys...if you don't like them don't buy them...there are so many toys out there to rip on...i think peecols are fun in their own ways...if you felt scammed by buying the toys then dont buy any more...its just art man...just take a good look at your paintings and see what people will say about thems...

my 2 cents



I see your point, and I did go too far. I shouldn't have said that about eBoy getting paid for these things. I really don't like the toys, but that's not eBoy's fault. Plus, like I said at the end of my rant, his art is fine I just don't care for the actual figure format. So I apologize for rip'n him. The fact that he gets paid to make art/toys is pretty cool.

thats the beauty of art....if you don't like it, you go to the next piece...thats how life is sometimes...sometimes things are better left unsaid...obviously eboy has made his point into his toys, he wanted to make it simple yet fun...i like it because of the simplicity and ideas behind each characters...i can see my children in the future enjoying these toys...it's just another idea that eboy created and people either like it or not...we all get paid at something we do in life...eboy chose toys...so i respect him in that area...just like i respect you as a fellow board member...rock on and play with your toys...

Ironically, if you feel a need to draw a toy:whore analogy, I think JLed colorways (you know, like the ones in your WTB sig) would make much more sense. Peecols would be more like the unpopular kid at school who is really nice if you'd only condescend to actually talk to him.

My only complaint about these guys is that they are not vinyl. If they were they'd be fantastic and great for customizing. I still love em though ;)

Your use of the word ASSume has deeply offended me and I would like a written apology and some sort of monetary payment for my pain and suffering due to your actions.

My point is is that...well I could find something more likeable at Toysrus....at a better price.. They are qauasi-limited figures in a feeble attempt at reaching an even broader range of customers... I'm not a prophet, but I think in the next year, KR will learn to covet the hand that feeds the mouth. Just sayin.

The only peecols that ACTUALLY sold out were the first 3 limited editions ones. wow.
BTW, this forum is a ghost town minus this topic.

none of the KR toys carry any of the latter 'limited editions' though. and KR did not distribute any of the 'limited editions' to any of the official kr retailer. you can only get them from the online store.. ts weird how they run things..

I liked them, and heard they were even better in person.

I bought 9, and they didn't fit in with my collection, so I gave 2 to my son and sold the rest.

I don't think I'll be buying them again, but more power to anyone who diggs 'em.
