I appreciate greatly they acknowledge the image of this beast is by Ron Cobb. He is what you could consider a legend among men. If you are not familiar with his work please educate yourself to the legacy of his work. That said it would be great to see a soft vinyl Conan based on his concept art. By the way Bemon was actually the 3rd entity to produce a likeness of the creature of this conversation. Also retail, if you could have bought one for that price; was about $180 for the Bemon doll so $200 for this doll is not too crazy. Personally I would have liked it to be half the size for half the price. I like mid size better than standard size. It's a neglected size by most companies. $100 would have made more folks happy and the size really would not suffer much critisism. Anyway it is what it is.. right? Back to other sculpts that predate the Bemon, older folks may recall the resin kits from the early 90's. So it has been loved as a concept long before the logic of SB. Not that this information will change any minds already hardwired to think otherwise. Just trying to insert objective viewpoints of a life long Monster fan. Make your own minds up. I wish more folks appreciated learning and spent less time on speculation without a drop of measured information. Monsters are good people. People not good Monsters.
