The official release of the first plush collaboration between artists Luke Chueh and Scott Tolleson.
Bartholomew Punchyface is the collaborative efforts of artists Luke Chueh and Scott Tolleson. Chueh’s cynical narratives combined with Tolleson’s nerd chic culminate into a character anyone who’s had a hard time in school can empathize with.
The most pathetic nerd bear you’ll ever meet. Buy him to bully him or save him from the other bullies out there.
This limited edition plush bear produced by 3DRetro is making its debut at Giant Robot 2.

Giant Robot will also have a set of two prints edition of 50 by Luke Chueh and Scott Tolleson.

There will also be a special drawing contest with a prize!
