    I was just looking through some old threads and found this. I wonder if this is the same sculpt or something that inspired them to do the new one. :)

    EDIT: I had a couple people hit me up about this saying that they thought it was sketchy that Greg and Joel acted like they didn't know what this was. I wasn't trying to imply anything negative at all by pointing this out, I just thought it was interesting!

    Looks like something the Gaulung guy would sculpt. I always wished his stuff would have got made into toys...

    I don't think it's sketchy. Just another knockoff, ripoff, homage, of a toy. I thought that this was always intentional? I mean they pretty much took oculus orbit, horn head and other nods to madballs aka "mishka bootleg/ madball popper"....tweaked it and made it their own.

    I don't know if they've ever stated it but it seems pretty obvious that the toys aren't totally original in any way. Didn't they just make a new toy based off that teen movie Scream?

    Just another monkey, whats the big deal?

    I thought the sculpt looked ok. Nothing wrong with making toys that people will want to buy, not that I would. But theres something for everyone.

    actually mishka did quite a lot changes, new figure has totally new feel to it imho.
    what about gorilla yu - thread where quotes have been taken from???
    not much more than just blown up version of vintage character,
    still good enough to me, totally love gorilla yu.

    anyway some more info on two head ape would be much appreciated!!!
    propobably im totally wrong, but looks more like a proto
    rather than a vintage figure to me...

    it's either an homage or completely original & they were just hyping their toy on the low.

    I bought one of these from the Mishka booth at Designer Con. I really like the "Heavens Gate" reference, it's pretty creepy.

    I really thought that Mishka toy was pretty crap, others seemed to have better sculpts or more interesting concepts. Didn't like it much, but then again, I really dont like mishka toys that much.
