You know what is "EVIL"? "Evil" is SuperPlastic posting their Gloomy in Pink SuperJanky from Japanese creator Mori Chack (@morichack), but we cannot get to it, as it was a Kickstarter Only Exclusive! Even "eviler", is them teasing the impending launch of the 8-incher tall "BLACK GLOOMY JANKY", with a October release! Stay tuned for more reveals and product details updates on Insta @superplastic.
It truly has been a minute since Gloomy Bear toynews graced this blog, going as far back as 2011 with plush and 2010 with BE@RBRICKS - although my most memorable HAD to be my iCollect feature with Lekky...! The infamous Pink and bloodied "Naughty Grizzly" has never really strayed from it's form/identity of a "bear" (unless you count that "bunny", but...), and this looks to be a first?!
Scroll thru for a video clip (last posted in 2010) and a Wiki-description of the artists and the origins of the "Naughty Grizzly"!
"Mori Chack (森チャック Mori Chakku, born on March 23, 1973) is the artist name of a Japanese graphic designer, who was born in Sakai, Osaka, Japan. He is famous for his Chax product line, and especially the character Gloomy Bear: a 2m tall, violent, pink bear that eats humans.
The design is an antithesis to the excessively cute products produced by Disney, Sanrio's Hello Kitty, and other companies. Mori Chack believes that humans and animals are incompatible, and an animal is wild by nature.
This is expressed most pronouncedly by the Gloomy Bear, which is often shown blood stained and attacking humans. Gloomy Bear is also available in different colors with slightly different designs." (Wiki)
