{     PEECOLs from EbOY     }    

eboy-peecol-1.jpg

For many years now Berlin-based EbOY have been making beautiful pieces of meticulous goodness in a signature pixel-by-pixel style, but until now their work has been available only via screen or paper with few exceptions. In their own words, "EbOY is Steffen Sauerteig, Svend Smital and Kai Vermehr. We create re-usable pixel objects and take them to build complex and extensible artwork." However, in a stroke of "why the hell hasn't this been done before" genius, the kids at Kidrobot finally matched up the pixel-pushers with the plastic-producers, and thus the Eboy PEECOL figure series was born.

The quick and dirty facts are this: they're cheap at $10 a piece, are 70 to 90mm tall with articulation and interchangeable parts, and are seven in a series with what appears to be six readily available characters and one collector's piece. The first in the series (Nuke) is slated to be available on October 10th with the remaining six available October 25th, with a second and third series already slated for release in the following months. It honestly looks like they've just created the next benchmark in collectible toys, or toys period for that matter - a collector's dream and a casual buyer's money still well-spent.

There is already a Flickr group for the PEECOL series with many pics of the first series already available, and to see some sneak peaks of the upcoming series you can check out this thread in the Kidrobot forums. To read more about what PEECOL is, how the toys came about, and who Eboy are, check out this great interview with EbOY at TOYSREVIL.

I'm smitten.
I don't appreciate the jerkaround on this whole Nuke figure giveaway, but I'll admit that the only reason I'm pissed is because I want one so bad.

I'm so happy to see eBoy taking the mini-figure where it needs to go, away from the "blocky" feel towards a more fun and organic shape. The design is simple and classic, they've broken with tradition in the best way possible.
