Eck! Eck! Eck!

Here he is, the very first prototype Eck. I may be prejudiced, but I think he is the most delightful creature in nine thousand galaxies. He is nearly 7 inches tall and comes in a (very) limited edition. The one pictured here is Number 1, and I'm afraid he is mine, but each subsequent Eck will be handmade by Nick Godlee, numbered, and unique. Please note his long sticky tongue. This is not some cheap facsimile Eck.

The Eck costs £20 + £2.50 ($31 + $4 in the U.S.) postage and handling, which is quite a good price for a nearly-extinct animal. A percentage of the purchase price will go to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund charity) which protects endangered animals like Ecks. Although there really are no animals very much like Ecks.

For the moment, not being what you might call "a retail outlet", I can only accept cash or cheques. If you would like to order an Eck, please let me know and I'll send you payment details. He will have to be made for you and then travel from Brooklyn so there may be a wait of a week or two before he arrives on your doorstep. But Christmas is coming much sooner than you think (shoot me now) and we expect to be inundated with literally millions of orders, so you might want to order soon.
