    Arrived yesterday - vinyl colour a lot nicer than in photographs as there is a greenish tint to the yellow, at least it does to my eyes. :D

    Sprays are simple yet effective and the eyes, in particular, really pop. I hope Ken-San decides to produce a GID version because a green glowing Creature would be superb.

    This yellow vinyl is spectacular, but BOY, is it hard to capture correctly. Good Lordt. There isn’t a whole lot more I can speak on that myself and others haven’t already said. I just wish Arizona had something useful by way of a swamp, marsh or literal lagoon for me to take this out to for photos!

    Because the only other Mr. Hyde to exist dons the suit this version benefits one over its predecessor for having color coordinated sneakers. Face, hands and shoes, all aligned with their respective colors. Classic sweater. No graphic on the back, and only the “S” on the pocket area. Because of the Lil’ Franky/Sick Boy Billy body, but the Hyde face I’ve labeled this one the Sick Boy Hyde.

    A year and a half after I started hoping we'd see mini versions of Lil Diablo and Bonehead, and here we are! Dropped a couple of days ago by lottery.

    To my surprise, this was also my first win directly from Headlock. With the ballooning interest I'd written off online lotteries, but there we go. I hope others on the boards got lucky too! :)

    Good to hear someone different is winning. Seems like the same people are always posting every new piece, especially on IG. I have yet to win a lottery direct, but this keeps the hope alive! I do wonder how many are available to those who don’t get them every round... Losing that kid creature hurt.

    Congrats!! I thought about entering but prefer the fullsize. At this rate there are so many releases.

    I'm the opposite and prefer the minis. Mainly because there are so many sculpts and releases.

    It looks like there may be a Creature Bazaar release for them as well - so that also may help.

    From a post on social media, it would seem that the five shops, in five different countries, will be getting Headlock stuff in the future, perhaps to help with lottos and spread things out further. This may help with Mini Bone and Diablo.

    I could be barking up the wrong tree but the post was accompanied by the Mini Bonehead card; so I hope that those that missed out may get a second chance. :thumbsup:

    @Mr Fox on that note, I do love the bits of regional exclusivity and distribution Headlock is doing. The same behaviour is frustrating when it's a maker that rarely releases and sticks to a single market, but with the number of Headlock toys out there it's just another opportunity to win, and perhaps snag something special when they earmark an exclusive for the US.

    This approach only works because they've decided to make the brand accessible and can make quality toys in large quantities for this hobby. Hats off.

    @Anti Social Andy Indeed. Headlock and Creature Bazaar’s color coordination between the two works perfectly on so many levels.

    Signature?! 8) I do love it...

    ...and totally. The contrast makes the edges pop all the way around. My eyes sort of vibrate when I focus on the borders. I really appreciate having this one. It’s also kinda cool to have the Puri Puri Fink in a similar matching blank color.

    Happy Friday!! :mrgreen:

    Headlock Studio x Haunted Mansion. The minis did well sitting in the diorama the missus has at her desk! Yet another flawless translation from full size to minis. These were fun to do.
