    Meh it's ok. Saw the IG post when it was first released. It piqued my interest, and I actually had to take some time to decide, but eventually I passed on it and this was before knowing who the maker was. I guess you could say it failed my toy litmus test.... It'd be contradictory of me to start liking it now just b/c we all now know HxS has a hand in manufacturing it. Not everything he touches is gold. I still don't want a Tyranno Ju.

    But with the crappy look, crude sculpt, rotting flesh, and sick textures bruh, this is a sure fire hit!

    I liked the first version but the second version is even better.

    Looks so mean and evil.

    I like this new head, but I preferred the first version paint-wise.

    They're too cool! The sculpt and colors have been great so far. I hope to add one to my collection :)

    I like the new head too.
    That goofy, shining-teeth smile just adds more character to it.

    ^Pretty much feel the same.

    My gut reaction when I first saw it was Nag ripoff, and I am not a Nag fan. And the sculpt is not derivative enough to pass for its zombie source material. I dig crude sculpts when done correctly, but this feels a little too crude for my tastes. To each his/her own.

    This guy is really cool. Like BD said maybe the texture looks Nagish in small pictures. But up close most of it looks like dripped was. Like it was sculpted in wax and the texture is just hot wax dripped on and making this drippy texture.

    So I got to meet Izumo tonight. Regarding the toys, he said the main influences are Fulci Zombies but also Toxic Avenger and Jason without his mask. He also said he'll be at NYCC this year. He's a cool guy. No plans to jack prices up lol. Plus he's a killer tattooist. I hope he keeps true with awesome art and killer toys.

    That's great news! I haven't liked the first two versions that much.. I'd rather wait for a version that I really like.. Good to hear prices won't be crazy by the time I see what I'm looking for. Winning the lottery at that time.. Well that's another thing...

    Definitely a standout. Personally, I'd like a mixed parts version. :D

    Would also be cool to see drawings/sketches of what the fig was based off of. As a tattooist, I'm sure he has mad skillz.

    Not going to lie, the toxic avengers nod made me like it a bit more.

    Someone I know recently did some art for Izumonster. And he sent them this. They were excited to say the least.

    I hope Izumonster is prepared to be inundated by half-assed doodles from random needy strangers he's never met!
