Oktoberfest/Deathbot Lederhosen Release Party

On Monday evening City Beer Store was packed to the gills with friends, well-wishers, and Deathbot devotees as we celebrated the release of the new Deathbot Lederhosen. The Oktoberfest brew was flowing, the Deathbots were circulating, and a great time was had by all. Many thanks to City Beer and all those who made it to the party!

Jeremy from Toycyte stopped by and afterwards posted a few photos alongside this interesting comment about the Deathbot:

"...besides digging the toy itself, I want to mention that the Deathbot is a relationship-bridger. Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/mother-in-law who just barely tolerates your toys? Is it the modernism and the coldness of urban vinyl? If so, perhaps, like my girlfriend, your partner will embrace the warm wooden antiquity of the Deathbot." (emphasis added)
So there you have it: there's nothing to rekindle the flames of romance like a heartless, drunken, killing machine.

Dbot Dbate

We got a good chuckle from Jager of Millionaire Playboy's review of the Barack Obama action figure, in which he photographs the figure in debate opposite one of our wooden Deathbots. We appreciate Jager's snarky political commentary, and remind our American friends to vote Deathbot on November 4th in support of his "Kill!" platform.

In other Obama-related news, our third run of Yetibama shirts sold out yesterday in an astonishing six hours!
