    You seem to mistake this for some sort of community where you have earned rights and representation. That isn't the case. No one here is beholden to your wishes nor are you entitled to anything. Just as easily (and as controlled) as accounts are activated, they can be shut. Just putting this out there now. Getting put on a timeout isn't something you should brag about, it's for little children.

    Chill out, and contribute to the discussions in a constructive way; that's what forums are for. Otherwise just go elsewhere.

    And in the meantime please refrain from spamming up threads with unrelated subjects and multiple sequential posts.

    Whoa just seeing this. Kudos. Cool story and great toy. As a kid I always wanted a patrol dewback and wampa.

    Thanks for the support, everyone, it is appreciated.

    Unfortunately I got COVID-19 right before All Monsters Attack started, so I wasn't able to sell the Spring Mudbellies there. This means there will be more of them at Five Points Fest (provided I don't get Ebola or something before that show). I'm quarantining at a friend's house right now.

    Meanwhile, I got a message from a customer in Serbia who didn't receive their order. If anyone has had any experience with tracking down missing packages there, please let me know.

    So I got super lucky this Saturday at the 50/50 show at the Scumpit, and then my luck continued into Sunday during the swap meet when @3wing showed up with a bunch of fun painted toys including this little guy:

    What a fun toy @Roger! I’ve missed the regular version each time there has been a restock… and I’ll get one eventually; but this is a heck of a way to start my collection/herd of these fun little guys. Neil’s paint fits this guy perfectly. I know he had at least one other mudbelly, but I don’t know who it went home with. But I’m glad I got this one.

    Fantastic pics, thanks! I really love Neil's paint on this one. Looking forward to seeing the other(s) posted.

    Because I love you, Skullbrain, a heads-up that the leftover Spring Collection Mudbellies are up on gardenstatekaiju.com now. Each color variant is limited to one per customer. I will be announcing them on Instagram in an hour.

    I missed them because I went to bed at a reasonable time for once, and didn’t check my phone beforehand! Lol. But seriously, congrats on another fun release and to everyone who nabbed one. I’m glad Mudbelly continues to do well.

    Sorry you missed them, guys. My schedule is weird this week and I had a short window in which to get these sold, and I was getting a lot of requests. As it was, I only

    Looking ahead, the next exclusives are going to be sold online later this summer, then after that, more green "Wild Types." After that I don't have any other immediate plans for limited editions in 2023. The only show I think I'm going to do Mudbellies for in 2024 Mudbellies is Five Points Fest.

    This is the lamest thing I've ever read here. We tend to lean Autistic, but this guy gives a bad name to the rest of us.

    Nice timing.


    Personally, as much as it pains me. I’m going to have to sit this one out…due to postage costs. At just $25 for this lovely little beasty but then $20 for shipping to Australia it ends up near $70 (au) landed. These shipping companies really need to give us all a break! Not that I can see it happening.

    UK posse should have coordinated - as @GERMS has said, postage is killing small orders - and it would have been great to get a few to the UK and then done local post out to the new homes.
