I don't know what you call those things, but I really want to kick that blue one in the balls. 

Those uniforms look like 20 year old flight attendant uniforms.

Yeah, agreed.

There was actual thought that went into making those creepy mascots. A LOT of thought. I was laughing reading this:

Every Olympics it gets worse. Uniforms that look like they're from a thrift store and mascots from Mars.

I'm still excited as hell, though.

The Mascot Story for Loc Nar:

"In October 2008 we advertised the opportunity to design the mascots on CompeteFor , the London 2012 procurement website. After more than 100 designers, artists and agencies applied, we spent the next few months selecting the best ideas and developing them based on this feedback.

When the final three ideas were tested with people all round the UK, we learnt that the British public didn't just want a character, they also want a story. We also tested the ideas with toy industry experts who agreed that Wenlock and Mandeville were the best choices.

Based on all the feedback we received, we selected Wenlock as the official Olympic mascot and Mandeville as the official Paralympic mascot for London 2012 in December 2009. The mascots were designed by London creative agency Iris."

Here's more (yawn):

I just double checked and the picture is the unveiling for the "British Olympic Team". Here is the site for that image:

Stella Mccartney!

ETA: Maybe they are being modeled by representatives from all parts of the Olympic games, but it doesn't say.

They are still butt ugly! I think I like Ecuador's the best.

ETA: I like Canada's but it just makes me cringe thinking how it would show all the cat hair happy.gif

Bad word choice for "shape". Look at the head outline. See? Gold, Silver, Bronze.

Hmmm
Around the...dip area ?? of the head where the W is, I see like an orange colour - OK maybe gold. The actual head and costume is grey - OK maybe silver...Is that what you mean? Where is the bronze?
