Coming soon, you may be greeted by Design Toscano’s “Garden Yeti” or “Garden Bigfoot” in a replica form you could hardly imagine: lifesize.
The “Giant” size is going to be new to Design Toscano’s Spring catalog, coming soon after March 15th to a mailbox or inbox near you. In the meantime, Cryptomundo has the EXCLUSIVE NATIONAL pre-launch special announcement .
Sky Mall will also do a big splash on airlines later in the spring, but you can see the critter here first.
You are already familiar with the medium and slightly larger garden variety models (see here).
Their Holiday Bigfoot ornament was a best seller and flew out of their warehouse.
Now Steve Pseno, Design Toscano’s Vice President of Creative/Merchandising, sends along the word that they are going GIANT for the Spring of 2012, with this six foot tall model. For the collectors, museums, schools, and committed Bigfoot fans and Sasquatch researchers, get your full-sized hairy hominoid replica soon. (The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot, btw, is generally agreed to be 6.5 ft tall, not 8 ft tall.)
If everything works out correctly, you will be able to see one of these, close up for your personal examination, at the International Cryptozoology Museum starting this Spring 2012.
Assist us with donations to set this up….Simply click on the following button to give $5, $10, $50, $100, whatever you can send…
Start 2012 on a positive note. Give to a good cryptozoology cause.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
