Mothman vinyl toy and festival photos

Mothhorvath Yesterday, Point Pleasant, West Virginia hosted its annual Mothman Festival, a celebration recognizing a strange bird-like cryptid whose reported sightings in the 1960s were linked by some to a string of weird events and a tragic bridge collapse. Last time I was in New York City, I spotted this amazing Mothman vinyl toy in the display case at Kid Robot. Released last year, the limited edition Mothman was designed by David Horvath, co-creator of the wildly popular Ugly Doll toys. Link to Vinyl Pulse's Mothman toy review from 2006

And for a glimpse of this year's Mothman Festival, the Charleston Daily Mail has a small photo gallery of the festivities. Link
