    Great factory work and video. But that HUF middle finger is horrible.

    I wish it was a better interpertation of Haroshis work: the shapes of his sculptures are not special, its the medium and execution. So a vinyl of any of his works looks like nothing really. That being said im partial to the literal "fuck off" attitude this has and if its released in black or gid ill probably pick one up to go with my large mickey middle finger toys. Enough of a derail tho...excellent video work!

    Done by a group of buddies and parties of mutual respect for shits and giggles . . . the end result is almost irrelevant!

    You guys were seriously starting to make me think I'm colorblind, as I could swear it's orange vinyl from Hirota's pics...

    Not orange, more a dark salmon . . . like an aged and weathered vintage red Bullmark toy.

    What do you know? It's not like you're some kind of designer or something.

    :lol: that should be a bumper sticker!

    too bad the salmon color HXS could not be
    salmon scented too- cats would go nutty!

    i used to have the scented 1st press of the
    Damned "Strawberries" it smelled aweful

    wasn't there a sKullhevi that smelled like sulfur a while back?

    I thought it was orange but looking closer at the pics it does seem to be a slight "salmon" tint ...

    but congrats to the winners .

    Same header as previous releases

    No omake, but I believe all came with a sticker.

    I still have mine, and since it was always stored in a closed bag, the lyric sheet still smells somewhat strawberry like. :)
