David and Sun Min, creators of the Uglydoll toys, are launching the UMA SUPERMARKET TOY SERIES of polybagged, offbeat toys made to look like the kind of stuff you find hanging on the pegs at supermarkets.  Their first offering in this series of toys will be the Mothman vs The Flatwoods Green Monster playset.  That’s right, they’re kicking off this new toy line with a Mountain State connection! 

From the press release: “This is our first plastic self produced toy.
You know those toys at the super market? There’s the farm set, dinosaur set, cowboy set etc. But never a UFO/Cryptozoology set!
Why? What are they trying to hide!??? And why is the pig always larger than the COW?!! Why no UFO super market toys?!

Well now there is!!!

This special header card/baggie set includes Mothman,
the Flatwoods Monster (the green monster as he is called in some parts) and the tree and fence the eye witnesses saw Flatty
standing near that dark and oily night! “

The Mothman vs. Flatwoods playset will sell for $12.95 and will be released March 1, 2008 at specialty shops nationwide.  I wouldn’t be shocked to see these at Hot Topic, either.  I want one. You know that you do, too.
