    The colorway in this one it's just amazing, but they use the Bullmark Hawaiian Hedorah colorway for this one? or it's just a coincidence :?:

    Yea, I ordered one but unfortunately wound up with the pink/green skull jinmenken. Blind bags suck. Will somebody please trade me?

    Not that big a fan of the movie, but this was too awesome to pass up.

    I would imagine that in person have to look better.
    Personally I like the detail that has the hair of another color.

    The clutter versions looked great in person and they are actually quite large, at least 13-14"

    Agree!
    But why so small. Don't get me wrong, I like small figures, but this just seems to want to be more standard.

    Those eyes work great with the human skull dog body!

    I really like the paint job on these two, it looks great and the curly hair also gave an extra kick; I imagine they are two evil beings. :twisted:

    It has it's moments, and small bits are pretty brilliant, but TBH it's kinda boring. Plus, Rowdy Roddy is no Kurt Russell. :)

    Thanks! And I will.

    Wow, I didn't think of that but a Yeti would be sick, for sure.

    I feel like a lot of their stuff is just a little too derivative.

    ^^ to be fair, they did say in their IG post that it's just a large resculpt of a vintage toy, so at least they are not claiming to be original with the sculpt.

    does anybody out there have an image of the original vintage version ?

    side note: would love to see more bigfeet and less creepy mutts with spooky human faces.
