Oh Gosh... They are so creepy. They shouldn't have the faces. The faces make them so creepy! And the mustache? They cost the same but GIANTmicrobes are my first choice. :eek:

The Thing that makes them creepy is the fact that GIANTmicrobes have Eyes added, that's it (With the exception of some like Flesh-Eating which have a fork and a knife stitched on), the faces, hats, ties, mustaches, all of it! TOO FAR! TOO FAR! I hope if they make something like a Water Bear, they make it NORMAL!!!

When Swine Flu flies.
More likely Gm would sue, though I doubt it. Gm is a lot better, I think they won't be nearly as successful as Gm and these, maybe a Water or Daphne, are the only ones to be produced.
They won't sue, OR take over. They came out the same year. Within those 8 years, one went to create an "Arriba Amoeba" Keychain and Pen, the other made over 70 more to the collection. Your Algae is safe. Until Flesh-Eating Arrives...

I think they "Lost" for 2 reasons back around 2003:
1. Over the top/Price
WAY TOO MUCH "detail" and additions. Not just that, but for most, on the other side, they look like they should. Both are $7.95 for a 7 inch plush.
2. Irony. More irony giving a virus or bacteria then a cell.

Oh wow!

Those are a little scary........

And horribly overpriced! Giantmicrobes are much better, the so called 'silly cells' look like some kind of joke made out of uncomfortable cloth that will end up in a yard sale!

And the name will give you nightmares along with their creepy faces......

ATTACK OF THE SILLY CELLS!

See, the problem there is that the design is way too complex! Almost like they worked too hard over their concepts. Over here, the design is simple and as you can see, very effective, which often equals, cute! :D (just like Hermes mentioned) I believe this is the age of minimalism ;)

fixed!

They're not overpriced, they're the same price as a GIANTmicrobe, just way more "detailed."

Who would buy one of these things? The Giantmicrobes have good, plain names for theirs, like just 'Brain Cell' Instead of 'Johnny Joe Brain Cell'. And the Silly Cell stories are bad too, like this one from Peppi Paramecium:

Peppi Paramecium

"Mama Mia!" While definitely one of his favorite phrases, it's also the one that you'll exclaim most often as you follow the crazy antics of Peppi, the happiest, most loveable and most emotional of the Silly Cells.............. His squeals can shatter glass, knock down trees, and send those muscle bound body-builders running for their mamas! :rolleyes:

Who would buy it, just who would. We should tell the Silly Cell company just how much better Giantmicrobes are.

Billy Bob Brain Cell and Ellie Ebola or something. I also hate the genders. I mean, Gm has certain ones like Mono and two or three others that have specific genders, but with Silly Cells you can't pick! I like the fact that it's open with Gm, for you to decide.

Let's compare the only one they share: Amoeba.

Arriba Amoeba
What can you say about Arriba? How about walking target practice! This guy is a magnet for bad luck. If he were standing in a lucky phone booth, it would be the only one backed over by a garbage truck, even if there were no garbage cans within ten city blocks. Arriba’s the millennium version of Steve Urkel, with a twist: that being, it seems like all the bad things happen to him. Not the others! And, just like Steve, Arriba has such a great personality and big heart, you just gotta love him. Though a dark cloud hovers overhead and a lightning bolt aims right for him, he somehow manages to find the silver lining!

His friends can always count on him, especially when it comes to test-driving the super-charged, rocket-propelled skateboard that Hippy ordered on eBay, or taste-testing Stella's gourmet, fire-breathing chili peppers. Who else can fall 100 feet off a cliff and be stampeded by a herd of chickens, or be used as a parachute, a punching bag, and a crash dummy, and live to tell about it? Why Arriba, of course! Most of the time he gets the short end of the stick, yet remains full of zest for life's little adventures. No doubt about it, he is definitely the "go to" guy everyone should have around.

Facts and Fun vs. Random weird story that only makes sense if you own all the others and... Fun?

These Silly Cells are definitely junk. They probably copied from GM, then added scary faces, names, genders, and bazaar stories, hoping to sell one or two. But look at that unprofessional website!
