Unkle77 Medicom cover
What do you get when you take graffiti, mix it with music, and add a dash of toys? The creative alchemy that is this month's cover. The December issue of Lee's Toy Review brings to you an account of the brand new product from Medicom, based on the graffiti artwork of Lenny McGurr (a.k.a. Futura 2000), and inspired by his friendship with James Lavelle, member of the abstractionist band Unkle. Also featured in this issue is the newest Microman assortment from Takara and a checklist of the UK's G.I. Joe Action Force releases from 1982 to 1984. Find out what you might have missed at the October 2004 New York City's Tag the System celebration of art and the 100th anniversary of the subway car. For those of you who are FunKo funatics, check out the first page of the issue, and learn how to order your Glowing Gil and Karl, the latest Lee's Toy Review exclusives from FunKo. And while you're at it, revisit FunKo's Hanna-Barbera Wacky Wobblers in a continuation from last month's issue. But the FUN-ko doesn't stop there. A whole slue of Wobblers based on cereal characters, as well as a heart-to-heart with FunKo C.O.F. Mike Becker on the meaning of cereal, is also featured. Bonus features include Mechabot, Dusty Trail Toys, McFarlane's NHL Sports Picks, McFarlane's Dragons, and NECA's House of 1,000 Corpses and Iron Maiden, and much, much more.
