Hi there. I'm your kidney. You may be familiar with my friend, little kidney, but I'm bigger than him. Not necessarily better, but definitely bigger. We look the same, especially on the internet. But let me tell you, I am so large I have about twice the nephrons he has (ladies, take note). I'm not trying to brag or anything, I'm just sayin', if you like clean blood, I can get the job done in half the time. I also produce important hormones, such as calcitriol, erythropoietin, and the enzyme renin. If that doesn't knock your socks off, then kindly take note of my marvelous hangtag, which tells you all about the joys of homeostasis. It's also filled with pictures of me (yeah, I have a twin brother, double trouble), your kidney, bad kidney jokes and pee puns, but who doesn't like an organ with a sense of humor? Picture's worth a thousand words, so why don't you just read it for a second and tell me if you like what you see? I am big enough to hug, and did I mention I love to cuddle?
Maybe your brain wasn't burning with the question, "What's new with guts at Comic Con this year?" but we're gonna share anyway. Some more BIG GUTS will debut at Comic Con, specifically the new Colossal Kidney, Big Brain, Immense Intestine and Prodigious Pancreas, all pictured here. These are so fun and fluffy and fabulous, we cannot wait to share them with our favorite folks at the world's largest geek convention (being geeks ourselves, we're allowed to say that). If that's not enough, we'll also have our brand new plush appendix and plush thyroid, seen below, so please stop by our booth, #932! We'll also have our usual array of tees, pins, posters and other fun stuff. And for those of you who can't make it, don't worry, these guys are on now for sale on our website! And there's still a handful of the lifesize kidneys, pancreases and intestines left if you want 'em.
