    The more I look at him, the better he gets..

    Once again, I feel like an idiot for running my mouth so quick and for not bringing him outside..

    I wish I wasn't so quick to run my mouth..

    You're suppose to wait a week before talking shit, that's in the rule book. Did you not get that when you signed up?

    Apparently my rule book got lost in the mail or stuck in customs.. It's the book with the robot head with a circle and slash through it, correct?

    ;)

    I absolutely love when artists selflessly get involved and contribute like this. A tip of the hat to Aaron and the Retroband name!!!

    Thanks Aaron for this! As a fellow Texan, I am glad we can all come together as one and help each other out. For those that would like to donate, please consider donating here. This goes directly to the victims. No paying a CEO of an organization or printing checks, just straight to where it is needed. THANKS GUYS!!!!

    I wasn't aware there was anything going on down there, and that looks awful, but...I lost my Troll's dagger already? :cry: It's my own fault for living in a war zone. I guess he just looks like he's punching now, but I know what's going on. I only just learned it's based on Cat's Eye. If we can say that ;)

    Like I said, I don't really know what's going on in Texas, but my folks' house flooded a few times, a couple while I was there; nothing I would call a tragedy, but they did have to rebuild last time (and I only have a handful of pics left from when I was a kid). Anyway, I feel for those folks and good on ya, Aaron.

    Retroband added a red cross shirt and a texas flag header for the special auction.

    also I think we might see a maba zombie play mechanic with the oily maniac 油鬼子 figure
    [​IMG]

    seeing the hole on the bottom of the oil drum accessory we might get a "black goo squeeze action" if the material is soft enough...

    For all you Retroband fans out there, his reinterpretation of The Oily Maniac (from the 1976 film) is now available as a 48-hour pre-order from Unbox. I had the honor of talking with Aaron (Retroband) and Dan (from Unbox) about this project, which you can read all about here:
    https://coartmag.com/news/feature/oily-maniac/
    (and a link to the pre-order page is located at the bottom of the article as well)

    I gotta say, Aaron's sheer versatility with this sculpt and its various accessories genuinely astounds me.

    Dracula is absolutely nuts. Definitely my favourite Meats release; if the drop hadn't happened at such an unstable time for me I'd have been refreshing away on the page as well. Congrats!
