    So cool to see three different styles on one figure... this thing looks huge!
    Looking forward to hearing more about the idea behind each part, and how they tie together!

    Wow. Frankly this is insane. I love how you guys keep pushing the boundaries, I'm genuinely in awe. It's like the Toy Illuminati becoming flesh (or vinyl).

    I'll throw in my usual request for purple & glow together somehow; marbling, painted mixed-parts, etc.

    Insane!! This guy will need a lazy susan for displaying to show off each side.

    Plus I'm rooting for swirly silver like the recent Glyos figures.

    Wow, articulation all over the place. Real tight sculpting work, you out did yourself Rich. Inspiring how you guys push the bounderies of vinyl as a medium.

    Ran into some major glitches. But PK locked himself in his laboratory for weeks and salvaged the project. When you see this toy you all have to thank Paul, you have no idea what he went through to carry on this toy. Its back in Japan now, but It's still going to be quite a while until vinyl. It is an extremely large and complex toy with tons of angles.

    Thanks for the update, Joe. Really glad to hear PK was able to save the M.O.O.N. project from being doomed.

    Yup, this project was almost done for, PK saved it. The toy was basically sculpted, by three people, sent to Japan for wax, before our wax guy left Japan, only to find out the wax job wasn't so good. So the original sculpt came back to Paul only to be damaged in transit. Paul fixed it all, it was almost destroyed beyond repair. It's now fixed and back to Japan for wax work by another. Fingers crossed this is it.

    This is going on over 2 years of work.

    Wow. With all the trials and tribulations the sculpt has been through, it really does sound like PK worked a miracle. I can only imagine how gratifying it will be for the 3 of you when the M.O.O.N. Goon is finally pulled in vinyl.
    Fingers crossed as well that the sailing gets smoother from here...
