Adventure Time Time: Gallery 1988 Show, New Season, Toys

-Jensen Karp, curator and owner of Gallery 1988 explained how the upcoming Adventure Time art show came about. In a recent e-mail to TTDILA he wrote to

"We actually were approached by the clothing brand Rook. They were working with Adventure Time/Cartoon Network and had hoped to bring us in as another component. Pen Ward has purchased from our gallery before, but this was actually the idea of Rook, and we're happy they approached."
Pen Ward has bought from the gallery before, will he be presenting any of his stuff? You'll have to find out by going."

If we here anymore special news on the vent will share it with you.

On the statues from Cryptozoic

Each statue is a diorama featuring three 12” figure sculpts of your favorite characters from the Adventure Time universe. The three dioramas scheduled for release are: a “Finn, Princess Bubblegum and Peppermint Butler” statue, a “Jake, Lumpy Space Princess and BMO” statue, and a “Marceline, Ice King and Gunter” statue. Each statue set features one interchangeable variant character (Peppermint Butler, BMO, Gunter) making it possible to change the scene to fit your mood.
Fans can display each statue set separately or collect and display all three together to form the ultimate Adventure Time diorama. The first statue set will be available this fall for a suggested retail price of $100+, while the remaining two statue sets are planned for next year.
