    these look so nice, sort of remind me of a Del Toro monster, I would love to see the full toy.

    Looks great kichigai! Did you sculpt the new head?

    I'm sorry PK, you didn't answer in the form of a question so no points.

    Nice catch! Knew it looked familiar. Very cool!

    What's Garbage X based on? Is it a Madball like Argh and Lock X that I just can't ID?

    Ah, yeah, I think so. I was thinking American junk, like the horror movies and Madballs, that I didn't even think about Japanese monsters, duh!

    Dust-Garbage makes sense.

    So good. I really like how it almost looks like the original. Very well sculpted!

    I would love to see a swamp thing palette on this one.

    If testicles grew eyeballs and a horn, that is what it would look like. Happy, angry monster cheery face morphed from two testicles.
    I love it.

    I feel this is suffering the same issue with the poorly proportioned body we are seeing on a lot of these recent two-headed figs. They need to retool to make a larger torso, not just add extra heads - at least I think it looks better with a bulky frame.

    Could not agree more. Seems like there is some great detail on the heads but the bodies are just plain awkward. I for one am getting a bit tired of the two head/three head sculpts. They are cool and a lot of work goes into them but it's a little repetitive.

    I think with this sculpt that the problem is the opposite. I think if the chest would have been slimmed down the sculpt would feel more in portion with the rest of the figure.

    I'm interested if you guys might agree and here's a link to a full body pic I took of mine...

    With that said...I still think the figure is really nice and the torso does not bother me in hand.

    Have a lot of companies started doing three-headed sculpts? I can't think of any. With all the two-headed ones coming out I've wondered when someone would up the ante and throw a extra head on the thing.

    I like most of the two-headed figures coming out but would prefer to see some figures that stood on more than two legs(Always thought the Maza would have looked good if it was tripedal).

    Splurrt will help you out with this pretty soon. :)

    As far as the 2 heads go- This SHBxWombat body style doesn't bother me near as much as the new Mishka monkey with long-ass titties.

    that marmit? two head (gold) with the clubs totally look like they pinched in the waist of a marmit Sanda Gagantua figure, same scales and texture and such.
