Milo Johnson says
DITTO! Please post the source if you find it!
Bob L says
That is almost as cool as Darth Tater.
K. Engels says
I don’t ever recall seeing any daikaiju movies staring Anomarokarisu!?
I can’t find any sites in English, but I found out Hank Fox can see into the future.
That is precious! :D Gimme!
my pal ikoi is reading the page, and it’s apparently custom-made to order, so you’d have to order it thataway.
she says there’s not a price on the anomarokarisu but the toy car ones start at $250. that’s like eleventy billion yen or something, isn’t it
here’s one you may like just as well

Yeah those are custom ordered. In fact it seems like they can make just about anything you want as long as its not a person, trademarked character or your pet.
I want this one..

PZ: Me too!
A strange yen, frustrated by the strange yen.
This guy looks like a Vermicious Knid from Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. I might have to get one.
Peter McGrath says
You can see why theists think we’re as weird as all get out.
You could ask Mary Robinette Kowal. She’s a professional puppeteer, and she may be able to give you some ideas for either making your own, or she may know someone who could stitch one up for you.
Other than that, I’ve got nothing.
SWEET. Can you get the eyes in a glow-in-the-dark color?

Plush Anomolocaris! KAWAIII DESU YO!
concerned: that does suck. i should have grabbed stuff last weekend at the comic con instead
Sorry I didn’t make this one post, but the manufacturer can be found at http://www.toyvault.com/cthulhu/ and they have a list (bizarrely prefixed with a bunch of hex digit gobbledygook) of places to buy their products with much better privacy policies like http://www.trollandtoad.com/privacy.php and http://www.warehouse23.com/info/helpfaq.html#privacy
If you’re going to shop for Cthulhu plushies, there are better places to shop. http://www.warehouse23.com/item.html?id=TYVHP517
You could make your own Kiwa hirsuta (Yeti crab). Patterns and sewing instructions are free.
I saw these instructions for making an origami Cthulu on BoingBoing.
Try Hobby Link Japan:
They might be able to hook you up.
This might the Pokeman Anorith, which according to Wikipedia was based on Anomalocaris.
Cool site about Anomalocaris
LOL @ “strange yen”
why didn’t they have those when i was a child?!?
Heathen Dan says
Bah, I’m still waiting for an Opabinia plushie. :p
That does look pretty ez to make. How big is it? How about if your put one of those voiceboxes inside– I have a baby otter that, when you squeeze it, cought, smooches, purrs, whines . . . it is a quantum leap forward, cuteness-wise. (What is the standard unit of cuteness?)
you know if you put any foreign URL into google, it will offer a ‘translate this page link’
the translations vary from spot-on to a bit shaky:
Scott Heath says
The Royal Ontario Museum has a set of Burgess Shale critters in plastic that are darn neat: http://www.rom.on.ca/collections/toys.php
Greg Peterson says
Gawd, those giant microbe plushies are so cute. I ordered a brain cell. I saw PZ’s lecture on the brain not having a ghost, but if brain cells have cute expressions like that–one has to wonder. (I’m referring to the “dolls” at giantmicrobes.com)
Adam Peter Stein says
OK, but is the Simplicity pattern on file somewhere? Could somebody with a ruler knock one up? My mom has a sewing machine . . . .
Will Von Wizzlepig says
According to the ‘order’ page, the animal you want is available by request- that is, they don’t seem to make it and distribute it. I could be wrong, my Japanese is a bit rusty.
I sent the maker’s info address and PZ an e-mail in Japanese and English asking how to order it.
Do they carry Hallucigenia too?

I make lots of strange plush creatures as custom orders and have been asked for an anomalocaris recently – I’d be totally up for more orders!
