I gotta say – I wasn’t sure if I should file this one under “Toys & Games” or “Family Music,” and the reason is that it’s both. On the surface we have an announcement that Baconstein is coming – a “plush posable action figure” that will become available this Friday. But then we have the fact that Baconstein is the nemesis of Gustafer Yellowgold, who has a new record coming out… also this Friday. Check out a commercial for this delicious-looking figure below…

It is said that “Baconstein serves as a reminder that Earth (like the sun) can have its own hazards, personalities and egos to navigate when the previously known nemesis (and fan favorite) Cakenstein creates a partner in crime to seek revenge on him. It’s a reminder that there is good and bad and tension and ease in everything.”

BRIGHTER SIDE is the first music-only release from Morgan Taylor’s Gustafer Yellowgold. The album features guest appearances by WILCO’s Pat Sansone, and can be ordered direct from the official site.
