Joe the boxer is always playing with his ball bag!? No wonder his vision has been impaired. Part of a hilarious new range of Bearlimpic figurines from the Bad Taste Bears launching this Thursday 19th January.

We've wanted to make this Peter Underhill classic for a while now and we knew that the Olympics would be an excellent opportunity to do so. Named after the late, great Joe Frazier - RIP.

Lilly seems to have an enemy wanting to slow her down and stop her from winning gold?! Splash!? Part of a hilarious new range of Bearlimpic figurines from the Bad Taste Bears.

The Eagle eyed among you will notice that Lilly started life as a boy, however sculptor Wayne Taylor and creator Peter Underhill decided to change her into a girl!?


Check out these frickin' awesome Scarlet and Willy costumes made by the lovely Gemma Cook. Thanks SO much for the brilliant promo Gemma! You both look terrific (if a little creepy!?)

Some of you may have heard by now that one of our longest standing OddCo members, Kerry Balfour, will be moving on to pastures new today!? Kerry has been with us for around 11 years, so this will be a massive change for us all...

Needless to say we are very sad to see Kerry leaving, but we are all very excited for her and she has our 100% support for all her exciting future ventures!

We have had some amazing times here at OddCo with Kerry. We've laughed, cried, shouted, stomped and hugged and we've always worked as a great team.

We love you very much Kerry and you know that the door is open whenever you want to pop in for a cup of tea and a luxury biscuit.

Thank you for ALL those years of very hard work.

Miss you already,

OddCo Team xxxxxx


Geoff Grapes has taken the strain a little too hard and spilled his gold winning guts all over the gym floor!?

We're very excited about a brand spanking, fresh New Year 2012 here at OddCo towers and guess what? The lads in the workshop have been having their yearly clear out!!? Good lads!

Gavin and Nigel have found some amazing little gems sitting around the workshop gathering dust! We have paint samples that never made it to production, figurines that never made it to production, greys, whitewear and even a little jewelry too!

So, we thought we'd have a little New Year Curios auction on our official BTB eBay and give these unique items some brand new homes.

Check out a sample of images below or see them all on our BTB eBay and treat yourself to a unique piece of Bad Taste Bears memorabilia!

Black Clark – “This was a paint sample for the original Clark Variation before it was scrapped and electro plated.”

Red and Gold Iron Bear – “This colour version was amended and changed to red and silver in order to avoid any litigious altercations.”

Hanging Tough - "Although we love this figurine internally, he never made it into production due to cost implications and gravitational issues!? Don’t ask!? Needless to say, there was a lot of blood, sweat and tears in this model and in the end it was decided to put on one side in order to move on with a tight schedule".

Basil Whitewear - "This should be an exciting addition to any collection! As well as being only one of two worldwide, standard Basil hasn't even been released yet!?"


If Bad Taste Bears were to sponsor any Olympic team, I think we would be most happy to sponsor the Thailand Ping Pong Team.

One of seven Olympics inspired Bad Taste Bears figurines, Ping and her teammates will be available to purchase later on this month!

OddCo and Peter Underhill are excited to share the first of seven Olympic inspired Bad Taste Bear figurines, due to launch officially this month! Here's Ian Ferno!

Let's face it, we're not huge fans of sports and exercise here at Bad Taste Towers... We'd much rather have a cup of tea and a Hob Nob, than prance around in the rain getting all cold and tired.

Having said that, we'll be more than happy to sit on our fat arses next summer and watch our country failing to win anything other than a massive bill for all the new sports stadiums.
Ian Ferno was one of the first designs sketched out by Peter Underhill, who instantly came up with the name too!
Watch this space for more info on launch dates for the full range of Sporting Bears!


A Huge thank you to all those who have entered our charity raffle over the Christmas Break! You will be delighted to know that £900 has been raised and has been handed over to the charity of our choice, Bryson's Animal Refuge (just round the corner from OddCo towers.) The hard working team at Bryson's are doing some terrific, hard work for cats and dogs and they were over the moon to here the generosity of our BTB customers. Thanks again on their behalf!
