    I love this piece! This reveal completely surpassed what I had envisioned. The paint fits so perfectly for the sculpt! I have my fingers crossed so hard for this release!

    It seems like the doll has an underbody of wraps. O_O

    For a future 'Mummy' release maybe?

    Given the Classic Monsters theme I think there’s a really good chance we’ll see a mummy release in the future. Hopefully it’ll be 2021!

    Okay, I am throwin’ jazz hands of excitement for this announcement. Not even halfway into the first month of 2021 and Headlock drops this yellow lagoonie. Absolutely love seein’ these green sprays over the highlighter yellow vinyl base, and the purple lips and wiry eyes perfectly encapsulate the expression. I’m also appreciating the minimal approach of the sprays, despite how heavily textured the sculpt is. Classic.

    sigh...all I see is another lotto...most people won't win.Beyond that love the first release but not a fan of the purple lips. Congrats to the winners.

    Is it too soon to dub it “Banana Kid Creature”!?

    Actually really liking those purple lips ... no idea why, it does look much too much. ​

    If there’s anything Golden Age DC taught a young me, it’s that purple and green go incredibly well together. The purple lips immediately attract to the green to my eyes, and not the dominant fluorescent yellow vinyl base. I also like that the yellow in the eyes is a standard, flat yellow.

    I was hoping to see a painted release of the swamp creature, I just didn't realize it would be so soon. I love it. I'm hopeful I'll be lucky for the inevitable lottery.

    I have been hunting for a fairly priced Mr Hyde for awhile and had to keep passing on them when they went for high $s on YJA. However, I got lucky late last year and found one that didn't go above my budget; photos of it just showed a bagged toy from the front and the description, when translated, was very basic. I held off shipping until I had a few items to send over and therefore it only arrived yesterday. Upon unpacking it, I found that although the bag was sealed and, it looks like, the header is unmarked and has been unopened, the Hyde is signed by Knuckle-San. What a nice surprise and certainly an added bonus that I was not expecting :)

    Fantastic surprise; congratulations on the score!

    Re: the new Creature, I am regrettably still allergic to yellow dolls, as @ungawa222 put it. Excellent work though; I hope we get similarly restrained and bold paints on future releases. Fingers crossed for a blue base next, personally.

    Dang, apparently there was a lotterly for the painted Creature today, but it seems like it was a short window. Completely missed it.

    @SteveGo I actually entered it yesterday! He generally keeps them open around the 24 hour mark. Gotta turn on those post notifications, dude!

    You can set notifications on when people post? Not sarcasm but my instagram sucks and I'm rarely on it.

    @bryce_r Yessum! It’s been a feature for a bit, since they very first started fuckin’ up the algorithm. If you tap the three dots on a person’s post(upper right hand corner of the photo) you should get a list of options, one of which is “Turn On Post Notifications”.

    I roll the dice and just check it every so often. Have to admit, yours is a much easier way to go about it.

    PURIPURI FINK!!! All sorts of adorable, fuzzy and funny. A bit of a friendly poke/rip on Modoki’s Puri - Kun(his captions read Curvy - Kun), sculpted to perfectly fit Knuckle’s sculpting style. A simple two part toy. Stands great! So far I’ve only seen blanks hit collections, but Ken did post a story earlier yesterday of painted samples. Side note: this yellow vinyl was HARD to shoot and edit!

    This is simply another Amabie, and my personal favorite to date. The cream colored vinyl is classy lookin’. Seashell, almost. The blue sprays bounce off the vinyl nicely as a contrast color.

    And these two are Lil’ Franky planter pots! They’re ceramic, highly glossy, so I’m sure you could do anything liquid with it; coffee, planters, mini cereal bowl, whatever. In any event, they’re wonderful decorative pieces for sure!
