Hiya! Is there any place I can get a Toasted Marshall? Any plans to make a Marshall that can hold a marshmallow stick like the package? Thanks!

The Toasted Marshalls that were given away at the signing were handpainted....so, as of right now, there is nowhere to pick one up. :(

While we don't have firm plans to do a Marshall with stick, it's something we're considering, though it would likely be a bigger Marshall....but like I said, don't hold your breath just yet...it's just something we're thinking about right now. :)

i think there were 4 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/28148859@N06/3590229289/) and then another 4 for the new show, similar designs, but this time without bags/header cards.

kirby can confirm, but i'm 99% sure that's the way it went down :)

Wow, only 4 toasted MArshall were given away? There must have been more than 4 attendees to the initial signing. Were they given away based on a drawing or something?

i wasn't there, but from what I understand (somewhat corroborated by http://marshalltoys.com/?p=125), they were randomly dropped in the goodie bags. a nice giveaway when the second set of 4 sold out quickly at $100 apiece!

Correct on all accounts.

The first four hand-painted Toasted Marshalls were goodie bag giveaways. The first 40 attendees got a goodie bag, each with a random prize. Four people got Toasted Marshalls, four hand-painted Tear Drips...etc.

The more recent four were sold as part of our current exhibit with 64 Colors and Chema Skandal. We'll have the pieces from that exhibit up on our site in the next day or so, but the four Toasted are sold already.

We're working, somewhat slowly, on the idea of doing a production version Toasted Marshall...it's just too good of an idea!
