I ran across this online and a search on TC didn't show anything:

Anybody know who sculpted &/or manufactured these?

I was expecting to see something cheesy but this is a really nice mug. The sculpt and glaze selection are great. With 500 of these made I'm surprised that there's been no word of these before today.

A few TC members actually worked on Toy Story 3. I see one of them often, so I'll see if he knows anything. Since it specifically says "Crew" I'm guessing those are the only folks who got one.

These were designed by someone at Pixar and produced by Munktiki. They were given to Pixar employees. None were made available to the public.

My friend works for PIXAR and worked on TS3.

I am going to have to ask him about this mug since I know he isn't into tiki.

Looks like it was commissioned by Lee Unkrich "a known Tiki-aficionado". Didn't BooBen fix up his bedroom and/or office?

I've put three early un-numbered glaze samples of this mug up for auction on eBay to benefit Japan Earthquake Relief.

These mugs were, indeed, produced by Munktiki.

Well these bad boys certainly went for a bargain. The most i've seen a Munktiki mug go for was just under $500. I don't think we'll be seeing these sorts of prices for a Munktiki mug for a while.

So I wonder if it was a tiki collector or a Toy Story / Pixar collector that bought these..

Tried bidding on these but they quickly went out of range of what I could afford, which is a good thing since it's for charity. Good job sir!!!!
