Even after acquiring lots of new pieces for the collection at SDCC 2008, the Toy of the Week goes to a vinyl we picked up at last year's New York Comic Con from Brandt Peters and Mindstyle--the hollow eyed, bomb toting Vintage Slap Happy. Limited to 100 pieces, the solid black on black color way is a stand out figure at 16".
Slap Happy is engaging and terrifying all at once. It is the figure you saw in your little head as a kid every time your parents made you wait, while the creepy clown made you a balloon animal. It's the dark reminder of evil at the heart of something fun-the exploration of a childhood staple manipulated by the the sinister thoughts of the adult mind. And the execution is damn good.
