Tim Biskup's Alphabeast: Calli SetJuxtapoz // Thursday, 13 May 2010
Tim Biskup (Juxtapoz #109) always seems to make the best toys. It must speak to his lively inner child. His re-released Alphabeast is no exception.
The green and gold version of Tim Biskup's Alphabeast: Calli vinyl figure was originally released in 2006 as part of his "American Cyclops" exhibition in Barcelona, Spain.
However, within a few months it was clear that there were major issues with the manufacturing of the figures. As complaints poured in Flopdoodle Inc quickly switched factories and began production of a replacement version.
The offer was made to buyers of the green/gold version that if they sent back their figure it would be returned along with the new green silver version. In order to prevent people from re-sending the same figure for replacement a small hole was drilled into the foot of the original.
