Ice Ice Baby: Brutherford’s Bite Size Ice Scream Men
If you thought Brutherford was onto some next level shit with last month’s Tarantino-tie-in “Badass Brown,” prepare to melt. Meet Phantom the Scream Queen and her bounty of bite-size Ice Scream Men! Fuzzy black cat? Check. Tiny toy food? Check. Somewhere in the world, there’s an imbalance of cute because of this.
The Bite Size Ice Scream Men are hand-made by Brutherford using
the finest organic milk and sugar urethane resin. They come in both flat-top (2.25-inch) and cone-head (3-inch) styles and a blind assortment of flavorways: Spiteful Strawberry, Villainous Vanilla, Malevolent Minstachio, Badass Brown, BOMB POP, Beelzebanana, Oil Slick, Grotesque Gold, Blackberry, Grape Ice, Aqua Glow, Strawberry Ice, Ice and a special golden ticket collaboration with Kevin Herdeman of Melt Monster acclaim.
Individual Ice Scream Men will be on sale tomorrow, Friday, June 29th in the Brutherford shop at $15 each or in sealed cases of twelve for $165. There are only forty-five cases in existence, and every single Ice Scream Man is hand-made by Brutherford himself.
As for Scream Queen Phantom, she’ll soon be starring in a direct-to-YouTube production of Phantom the Scream Queen Batting the Spiteful Strawberry Ice Invasion (film still above).
I’ve seen that last picture several times and each time, I ask myself if I somehow missed the slightly smaller gray cone next to the normal 7.5 strawberry or if I’m nuts and the size is an illusion.
Anyways, I was glad when the minis came out! These little guys were one of the few blind boxes I’ve ever picked up (aside from the three blind boxes I bought from the one time I actually visited a real vinyl toy shop).
Also, I’d love to see a mint chocolate chunk full size cone. Perhaps it could be the first in a series of flavors infused with chocolate chunks. =)
