San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
Becky Bones; an entertainment fashion brand for inspired tweens who want to save the planet, is unveiling three new characters at this week’s 2011 Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas.
The three new characters join a cast of the 20 existing Becky Bones characters and significantly deepen the story of Becky Bones. CEO and Co-founder, Krista Kokjohn-Poehler shares “the new characters are members of the Eco-mafia, the nemesis group to Becky Bones’ Green Team. They are akin to the existing Eco-mafia bosses in that you almost love them, until you realize who they really are!” The devastation they cause to the environment is multiplied by their duplicitous efforts to convince the public they are leaders of the innovative green economy. It is Becky’s adventure to uncover the truth and blow the whistle on the Eco-mafia gang…and it all starts with her finding Lucy Lies in the closet of an abandoned factory.
Who is Becky Bones? Becky Cooper is president of her school’s environmental club in Kippford, Washington. When a mysterious brown sludge begins taking over the town river, Becky falls into the river while trying to get a water sample. It is then that she is transformed into Becky Bones. Becky’s crazy adventures take her from her hometown all the way to Colorado, through ominous Plastic City, onto mysterious Light City and beyond. She encounters a group of villains called the Eco-mafia, but also finds many friends. Together, Becky and her new pals form the eco-friendly Green Team.
The current cast of characters in addition to Becky Bones include:
Drip: a former refinery dog who helps Becky sniff out eco-problems
Lucy Lies: a robot doll programmed to tell lies about the environment by a secret factory
Tree: a regenerating tree and Becky’s oldest friend: he is cut down over and over again and turned into paper products until Becky finds him and recycles him. He especially hates being turned into toilet paper.
Nerdy Nate: the whiz-kid programmer who worked for the secret factory that programmed Lucy Lies
The Ninjas: Ry, Frank, Ed and Winston are bite sized ninjas who call up all their ninja buddies to help save the earth
The Green Team minions: Recycling Rex, Mighty Lighty, Cooler, Re-usable bag and the Becky Bones Cans
The Boss (of the Eco-mafia): An extremely brilliant wizard who tricks the public into thinking he is good though his true purpose is to destroy the environment
Plastique: the leader of Plastic City which is supposedly built out of all recycled plastic water bottles. She is a fashion queen, wrapped in gowns of plastic and she leaves a plastic sheath behind her.
Drain: the leader of Light City, a glowing vacation hotspot that is supposedly powered with all renewable energy. With outlets for ears, he sucks energy wherever he goes and leaves darkness behind him.
The Eco-mafia minions: Zippy, Chemy, Batteron, H2Face, Trashu, Spray and Guzzler
Becky Bones success has resulted in their selection by Licensing International Expo for inclusion in its new Brand Showcase featuring upcoming innovative brands during the Expo’s June 14-16th tradeshow in Las Vegas. Becky Bones will also host a booth at the show where the new characters will be unveiled next Tuesday (Booth #3874).
