    I'm sure by now a lot of you have already seen the sculpt, but I received news the proto landed safely in Japan, so I thought I'd get this thread going since I'll be offering a simple pre-order soon.

    This little guy is 4" and will be articulated at the neck and arms. I'm really excited about this guy, I love the scale and proportions and textures in hand - he's just fun to handle.

    The design is a little more 'gross-out' than I collect, but I am super stoked to see you make the jump to vinyl!

    On another note, congrats on taking this to vinyl.
    Definitely can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Re: Splurrt vinyl

    I think the "gross-out" combined with cartoony elements are the main reasons I really like the sculpt. I think all of Joe's sculpts have that in common on some level. They all really remind me of madballs, my pet monster(Diggler specifically), boglins, and garbage pail kids. Basically a bunch of 80's gross toys targeted at my generation. Can't wait to see this in vinyl.

    Congrats Joe! I really like the vintage look to it, the stitching on his body is so cool!

    What's on the left of his chest?

    Just a big bolt. he's also got a few little metal pegs poking out of his head to have his brain jumped. Stitched up and re-animated, brought back to life with an electrical charge, like Frankenstein's monster.

    Exactly... there's clearly Madball influences, which are really well done. I'm just not a Madball collector ;) There's nothing wrong with doing a style outside of my wheelhouse really, really well.

    Congrats Joe!
    This madball-franken-potato definitely instills some 80's toy flashbacks while still remaining original.
    Good work, sir!

    Several features I really like, the pot belly, butt crack, deep set eyes, rotten teeth, autopsy stitching... just really cool figure all around.

    ...can't wait to see him in booger green vinyl or some other disgusting colors.

    Seems like an opportune time for a naming contest...fun, fun, fun.

    First Splurrt vinyl looks great! I'm hoping there's an eventual pink release so I can add some Splurrt to my collection.
