Munktiki always kinda had a look-a-like. Says its only $18. One on Munktiki's cheapest. I should buy both.

......whoever makes these......please don't make this another shiny glaze mug!! this is screamin to be matte textured sand colored finish....




Kevin has told me that the mug will be a high-end collectible with matte bisque-finish exterior in natural "palm wood color" exactly like the original tiki on the show and it'll be food-safe glazed on the inside for liquid-usability.

Its not like there is a record of them claiming it to be a copy of the Hawaiian Eye carving. I think it's a great mug. This mug has been around for years. It's a more simple look of what could be the Hawaaian carving and the Hawaiian carving is a simple look for a tiki.

"Kevin has told me that the mug will be a high-end collectible" these words sound like limited number with extra greenbacks. The Munktiki is actually an very affordable mug and certainly an affordable Munktiki mug.

"Highly collectable" sounds like code for a lot of ohana are gonna get screwed. I apologize for the bluntness of that comment but....If it is indeed a good replication of and tribute to the Hawiian Eye signature tiki then you demand will be high. If so just name a reasonable price (cost + profit point) and sell the shit out them.I am a collector but also a tiki enthusiast. If you allow pre-orders at the above price point then make a limited run (plus a few extra) and it becomes a win-win for most of the ohana. At the same time you don't alienate anyone. At the end of the day I am psyched about this project and want a mug as much as the next guy (or gal)m

These comments are meant to help not hurt. If anyone takes issue with what I said just pm me and we can have a constructive discourse.

Matt

sorry to come off so angry sounding, teakey....i just really want this hawaiian eye mug to turn out as awesome as i think it will.....i think it will be one of the best mugs out there as far as looks......too many times a great mug idea has fallen flat on it's face due to whatever reasons.....



i'm sure the mug you posted is a good deal for some folks ...i still don't like it...even if it's not meant to be like the hawaiian eye tiki....


this new one should rank up there with the ken pleasant big joe tiki mug (which i did get screwed out of cause i didn't order in time to get one) -hopefully i'll get one of these this time around.....

"High-end" - Argh!! The two most feared words in the human language! (Okay, maybe just me there)
Thinks I'll just hafta look at my comic book cover & dream...
Or sell the comic & buy the mug, hmmm...

Although I also detest the words "Highly collectible" and "high end" I am still wanting to see a release date (and subsequent price) on this mug.
As a pi myself, this will be a must have for my collection. Hell, I'll have to get atleast two, if not three - one for my collection, one for my office and one for me to actually drink out of!

So...any more recent news on this masterpiece?

Patience. As far as I know, it's a next year's project.
And Kevin has been a proponent for unlimited Tiki mug editions for a long time, but when one sees ones artistically superior designs marred by low budget glazes, it is understandable to seek to fabricate an all around higher quality end product.

Does ANYONE have some current update info on this mug coming into production in 2009 OR 2010? Thortiki
