Hey, howdy, hey! It’s Woody the…Midnight Cowboy? Just in time for Halloween comes this unexpected mash-up from New York Illustrator Anuj Shrestha. This is a very different kind of buddy movie for our pals Buzz and Woody and we think it’s just great. We knew Anuj would bring an interesting perspective to our tribute and he certainly doesn’t disappoint with this humorous image. You can see more of Anuj’s thoughtful work at his website. Some of Anuj’s clients include The New York Times, Playboy, Financial Times (UK), and Kahani Magazine. His comics work has appeared in the Rabid Rabbit and Secret Identities comics anthologies.
Here’s a fun mash-up for all you retro-toy fans out there – Buzz Lightyear as Shogun Warrior! Concept artist and visual developer Barry Prioste sent us this awesome piece based on his favorite childhood toy. We think it’s a good match. Barry is based in the San Francisco Bay area where he is currently employed in the video-game industry. Check out more of his great work at his blog. And if you aren’t familiar with the original Shogun Warriors toys, look ’em up. These 1970’s precursors to TRANSFORMERS were a lot of fun.
We’d like to thank Barry and Anuj for contributing as our countdown celebration is nearing its goal. TOY STORY 3 comes to DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday! Read more about the great special features on the sets in our in-depth review here.
