We strive to sell at original retail pricing whenever possible. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't....I want to see these in peoples collections! It's a FANTASTIC toy.

I love this figure, and when I saw that you guys maintained the original retail price (anoter reason why I love roto), I had to snag it up. By far one of the best vinyl figures to date.

Gah! I totally should have got this when I had the chance. I wanted to think about it first, and now I feel like it should have been a no-brainer. CURSE YOU MONEY BUDGETING CONSCIOUS

I must admit that although I love and admire Taxali's work I am not as stoked by the toy. I doesn't feel right for me, especially regarding the color scheme (the blue is too saturated). Also, I have the feeling that the toy would have been so much cooler if it was kept within the context of Taxali's genre and that could/should have been a tin toy. That is actually the reason why I love the recent toy by Glenn Barr quite a lot (wood instead of vinyl). And even though the monkey has been around longer than some other stuff that has come up in the recent time I have the feeling that a lot of it is produced just to chime in on the hype.

Och well,.... sorry for the rant

*shrugs*

:? :)

Actually Taxali did make a wood one-handpainted. It was like $1000 or $1500, I can't remember. I think there might be a pic on his website.

The vinyl monkey is actually a very accurate representation of the monkey in the print named "Toy Monkey".

Hey Geo - you were probably one of the folks who ordered this directly from Chump Toys, right? The toy was delayed so Taxali sent us all serigraph prints called "Oh No" as a little something extra to compensate for the wait. Those were the days! I got that print, a Baseman print for the Toby delay, a Biskup t-shirt for the Calli delay, a set of Bwana mini-prints for the Steven delay...lots of cool stuff just for being patient! Seems nowadays similar situations just get ugly, which is too bad.

Yes. I did get the "Oh No" print for the delay, and it is really nice! Back in the good old days...!!!

Hello all,

All issues have been sorted out and I am officially firing up Chump Toys full steam ahead. I am working on my next toy which I hope to have out by the fall. In the meantime, thanks to everyone for their kind support!

As for toys currently available, I have my "Poof" Series 3 qee (2-1/2 inch) available signed for $12.

I also have, wait for it, a few DELUXE EDITION Original Toy Monkeys. The only thing that makes this baby a DELUXE EDITION is that it comes with a small 2 colour mini-print (postcard size), each one is signed by me (I also personalize) and a chance to win a FREE original piece of art from me. That is if your monkey is the one that comes with a Golden Tassle........only 50 of these in the DELUXE EDITION and they're going fast...! They're $200 plus $15 for shipping. And then that's it....no more monkeys. No black and white edition, nothing.

Thank you!
Best wishes to all,
Gary Taxali

p.s. What will be my next toy? Email me to be on my list to get firsthand news and updates: gary@garytaxali.com
