As I recall, only two have tikis, including one of the ones you posted. The other one is Leo / "Hilinaehu".

All these great designs with a really distinctive style - someone out there must know who sculpted this stuff?

One of the "old timer" carpenters I was working with said he used to work at Coco Joes back in the day and he remembers one of the sculptors name being "Andy", he couldn't remember the last name. Maybe BigBro has that info in one of those awesome Lavaflow newsletters? Freddie

Here's front-and-back photos of some bigger Coco Joes pendants. They're about 2.5 inches across.





The ones with the asian symbols say "double happiness" and "long life" on the back. I've seen another on e-bay that said "health".

Thought I'd contribute some more images to this thread. Some nice stuff on here! First some followups to some earlier posts...

Here's another one of the chinese character pendants, this one for good luck.


And some more of the "fertility girl".


Here's the biggie ashtray that Freddie referred to. She's called "Twinkle Toes" on the paper label.


Some more of them - note the smaller one on the left with the magic sparkling nipples! I really like the two in the middle - they're by HIP, and sort of a before and after.

Someday when someone does the great book on lava tourist stuff, they'll go into some of the interesting variations on the stamps they put on the bottoms of the figures. Coco Joes seemed to have some special stamps they used for some of their more unusual ones.


This stamp is a little different, and only seems to be on a few figures. Kinda looks like the seal of some secret society.


The amoeba stamp with handwriting seems to be on some of the nicer Legends in Lava kind of stuff. The one on the left is the chrome dome guy that Freddie posted, and the one on the right is a nice big lava girl figure.


Here's the upright view of the lava girl on the right from the above pic. I like the ones that have that theme of an alluring female emerging from a lava background. Here's some more...


The one on the right has the "secret society" stamp on the bottom.



And here's some more ones I thought I'd post.


Dig the finish on the Alii Gold series.


I think the one on the left is a coaster; not sure what the one on the right is.


Side view of the two from above.

Hope you enjoy these! Seems like there's always new discoveries with these, so keep em coming!

-Randy

Here are my pen holders. I remove the pen holding part, and hang them on the wall like plaques. I've posted most of these before, but those shutterfly links eventually turn into little red x's.

Dear All My New Cocojoes Friends:
If any of you have time in your busy schedules, could you post more pictures of these Alii Gold series tikis?

Thank you very much,
Buzzy
