    I'm really looking forward to seeing the Keep Watch Mummy Boy in a vibrant, neon colorway!

    Sorry Sam, this is the best that I could find:



    Mishka's cool, but to me all of their 'Keep Watch' stuff is just an Oculus Orbus rip off...

    and as long as James Groman et al. are still going at it I can't really justify buying it.

    However, if someone makes an Oculus Orbison figure I'm all in! How would the shades fit on a giant eyeball?

    S7 has their own expensive toys made in Japan, Mishka has their own expensive toys made in Japan.

    S7 caters to "nerd" culture, Mishka caters to "nerd" culture.

    S7 founder has beard, Mishka founder has beard.

    S7 "rips off"* classic images for designs, Mishka "rips off"* classic images for designs.

    S7 makes $100+ shirts, Mishka makes $100+ shirts.

    Sooooooooo......seems like it's a pretty solid match here guys.


    *- rips off, pays homage, whatever, I'm not using it in a negative way, I'm all about that crap

    Basically, Greg and I have been friends for years, and at last SDCC we were talking about toys and such, as well as the Baseball Boy t-shirt design. We joked about making a Mishka eyeball version, and then said "why not". We have always made toys with our friends, so this was no different. I don't really see a lot of streetwear kids knocking down the doors to get a Mishka Boy figure, it's just a fun spin for the new year. I think reading into it as a larger business strategy is putting the cart well before the horse. That said, I do think it has almost become a sport for some people to try and hate on Greg and his toy releases on this board, which is kind of said. I still don't like nags, but I like Greg, and making this with him was fun to do. Isn't that what toys are supposed to be?
