Dec 2 2010Burn, Little Men!: Melted Army Men Bowls
I can't count how may hours of my youth were spent having checker wars with plastic army men. And not just because I'm a bad counter, but I did give the bartender $17 for a $62 tab last night. Ha, not tip, in total. Apparently I'm not welcome back there. Anyway, these are plastic bowls made out of melted army men. Now I know what you're thinking, but no, they won't hold eggnog.
War bowl was designed by Dominic Wilcox in 2002. It has since been exhibited and sold in the world's most exclusive galleries and shops.
The War bowl is hand made using model figures from historic battles.
You can get a blue 'Battle of Waterloo' bowl above made with half British Artillery and half French Infantry soldiers, or a white 'English Civil War' bowl made with half Royalist and half Republican soldiers. What you can't get is one for cheaper than $248, which is why I just ordered 400 buckets of green army men and a wok off eBay. F***in' Daddy Warbucks over here! "Rock solid tie-in, GW." Thanks, I've been drinking!
