The Erik Plush Project

Post  HDKingsbury on Tue Oct 13, 2009 2:53 am

Is anyone interested in getting their very own Leroux Plushie? If so, I hope you don't mind me trying to drum up a little business a couple of folks who have created just such a thing! Here's what they have to say on their website:

The Erik Plush Project
http://www.sixpoint.us/erikindex.html

The purpose of the Erik Plush Project is to raise awareness of literature in general and the works of Gaston Leroux in particular. In the time since Gaston Leroux first published his novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, (The Phantom of the Opera) it has been the inspiration for a number of movies, stage plays, and other books, but the original is often unheard of, even to those who believe themselves to be great fans.

Both of the creators of the Erik Plush Project possess degrees in language. We believe that the book is almost always better than the movie. If you have not yet read The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, we encourage you to become acquainted with it now. Additionally, while The Phantom of the Opera is Leroux's most well known work in America, he is the author of several other novels including Le mystère de la chambre jaune (The mystery of the yellow room) and Le parfum de la dame en noir (The Perfume of the Lady in Black). Check out one of Monsieur Leroux's books today!

In the meantime, we at Six Point Design are pleased to present for the first time ever as a plush toy, Leroux's original Opera ghost, Erik.

Here's a picture of the plushie:



It's a very limited edition, with only 250 being made. You can pre-order yours now, and they'll be shipped out around the end of November.

I've been thinking about getting one, depending on price. Leroux-based merchandise is rare, and the kookiness of Leroux!Erik as a plush toy is right up my alley Smile

I believe the price for the plushie is about $24.95 + about $3 shipping US/about $10 international. I hate to admit this, but I'm over 50 years old and I've talked my mother into buying me one for Christmas! santa

Aww, that plushie is adorable! (Which is the last thing one would expect to say referring to anything based on Leroux's Erik. Wink)

Are there any left? I'm sorely tempted...but also pretty broke... He looks lovely. I especially love the fact he comes with a black mask.

While it apparently wasn't a large production run, I believe there are still a number left. I ordered one about a week ago and eagerly anticipate it's arrival.

That Leroux!Erik plushie is really quite precious (and no, not in the way that Raphael talks about his PonR Apple, lol). Haven't decided if I'm going to get one or not, but it is really nice to see Leroux's Erik getting some lovable representation. Smile

I think there are still 100 or so in storage, so you might be able to pick one up yet. I'm considering buying a second Erik for my nephew Very Happy

I took Lil' Erik (as I've dubbed him) along with me on vacation last month. I took more pictures of him seeing the sights than I did of myself!

I showed the photo of the plushie to my hubby and he said, "It's kinda cute in a hideous little way..."

I patted his cheek and said, "Just like you, baby."

Hahaha!

And Raphael, I think you're my new hero.

I still need to get one... Somehow, there wasn't one under the Christmas tree this past year. Sad

I am very tempted to get one but I keep getting indecisive. Are they still available?

Speaking of which, for you Facebook users, the album's available to the public, so this link should work:

Scorp, I think there are about 100 left in stock.

Does anyone know where I can buy an Erik plush?  I really like the one in the back with the sad eyes and yellow skin:

Riene, these sold out some years ago, your only chance if getting one would be if someone would re-sell theirs to you....
