    Love me some Sally Joe all about this guy can’t wait!
    I’m actually a sucker for most of the Paul villains as that tokusatsu guy in a rubber suit villain aesthetic always shines on them. Sally, MGG, and Unchiman just scream guy in a suit.

    Yeah. Totally agree, Unchiman even has the zipper :razz:

    Sally is my favorite and this big size is going to be so much fun

    like Paul said the other day on stream, it’s going to be a great center piece for any of us that collect his stuff

    I wish I can get a blank to knock around everywhere with me

    I had gotten the ear bug more than a few times about Sally.
    Had pondered some other designs and whacked out mutated versions, but I was never moved and tired of that endless goofy train. I just woke up and did it from my mind without any reference (or an OG fig anywhere near me). The work went incredibly smooth.

    So I went with something big, cuddly, and vintage looking as figs like that make you feel like a kid when you held it. I really did this for myself and it's very self-indulgent, but I wanted a sort of reset for 2021
    I'm actually very excited about it. Sally always painted himself. Hope people like it.

    @Paulkaiju Always some of the best insights to the creative process when comin’ from your mind. It’s interesting to know you’d toiled over mutated versions, whether on paper or with clay, which I’m sure would’ve came out killer! This huge version, though, keepin’ close to the chest worked out so perfectly. And I’m amazed, yet equally unsurprised how incredibly executed this is with no immediate reference, other than memory.

    One weird phenomenon during the sculpt.
    The concentric layers on the legs and arms kept joining in a screw pattern
    Sorry, I can't look back and see that far ahead. LOL.

    I am really so excited for this giant Sally Joe. I have a regular size one and love it. I hope i'll be able to grab one when it is finally birthed into the world.

    I had look back at the start of the thread. I can't believe it's been almost ten years. Such a great toy.

    This weekend was great for PaulKaiju fans and in particular Salamander Joe fans which I am one of.
    The big sally release looks amazing! Cant wait to see it in person.

    Dr Velm Q has really grown in all that time splitting!

    and the chrome that was teased is going to be a banger too! (Sorry, dont know how to post insta pics here)

    Splurged on a birthday vacay for the missus over a long weekend, so I couldn’t come in on this drop. But I’m very much lookin’ forward to potential Big Sally appearing at Summer Slime! Congrats on that Thrashout score, Manny!!! It’s also gotta be stated that Paul teamed up with Dave Burke for the header art!!!
