    Love the paint-job, but I'm torn on the release.

    Perhaps these body mash-ups are only exclusive to this Sofi event, and not just the paint job. Maybe there are two because of this also. They do have that custom / re-imagining thing about them.

    Anyone have a favorite of the two?

    Seems forced, though I was never a fan of mash ups to begin with, for the same reason. I like Longneck's chest burster better. I agree, paint job is nice.

    Mash-ups can be Really cool and we see good ones all the time, but other than these 2 technically being done well, I also think the custom design idea comes across as amateur. Surprising too.

    That is the flesh version of Armor Jack. The other version is the same except painted silver all the way.
    One of Amapro's first figures. It's the 'hero' from his short films. I think he released it in 1996.
    Here is a good article about the first 3 amapro figures:

    Thanks to a kind boardmember I was lucky enough to get the set with the silver version.

    Love these two, hoping they aren't too painful to get stateside!

    Even though he might not resemble a banana (or plantain) as clearly, I like Amapro's Bananga better than this Kasa Obake looking nanner (I dig some Kasa obake tho).

    But I really enjoy the look of the Panapool. I wonder if I could fit a couple shrimpies in those hands.

    These food mashups are definitely fun, though I don't know if I am as into them as I am the straight up bizarre pachi monster creations Amapro has done. He also has this guy coming out at WF, 'Balger,' ;) who strangely enough I am digging for his quirk.

    He looks like a crappy fast food hamburger. And I simply adore him for that

    Nailed it. The oversized, flattened Styrofoam-like bun, over the extra thin, may-contain-paper byproducts patty, sans any fancy accoutrements, perfection. Cheap, 'tasty,' and just the way I like it. :razz: All I need now is the perfect actual Styrofoam pop-open square container to sit this guy in.
