Digging these guys. I got the Mr Death painted when it came out, and it has a great feel in hand.
They should be mascots for a line of breakfast cereals
The overalls make the two-headed guy about twice as monstrous and scary. Seriously, there's nothing more terrifying than a backwoods mutant (or whatever his deal is). And the mummy's cool, but for some reason it just makes me want to see more in the (presumed) series. What exactly's going on with his toe, though? That looks bizarre,
The Mr Death I'm just not that crazy about for some reason. On paper this should be something I'd love, but I dunno... Maybe I need to see it in the right paint or something.
Kind of funny that when I was into action figures, he was doing action figures and now that I'm into this stuff, he's doing this stuff.
Mummy Man is reminiscent of Bounty Hunter's first Kaibutsu set to me, just more of a Fink - ish type feel. These are pretty cool.
Overall nice sculpts but really love the mummy man. Not into blanks but looking forward to seeing him with some paint. Is that articulation the Mummy has on his forehead or just a line?
Phht... Everyone knows all self-respecting mummies have articulated foreheads!
Probably the opening in the mold where the vinyl is poured into. Kinda like the aesthetic idea of a cap on his head. Hidden brain sort of deal.
The mummy is awesome, really just reminds me of Marx Nutty Mads, especially since it's unpainted. I don't even mind that it's flipping you off. The other 2 I'm not as into, but hope to see more in the series.
The Mummy is probably the best RJB toy to date. Would be interested in seeing a painted version!
Nobody's mentioned how monstrous that mummy's pinky toe is....That's not natural. Someone give that man some pills to stop the swelling.
Hahahahaha of course the one post I didn't read. figures.
I thought the exact same thing David. I love it.
When you're a mummy walking around can be kind of challenging...it's easy to stub your toe.
The Mr. Death figure doesn't really feel like it's from the same "series"...
Debating whether to pull the trigger on the 2.
All 3 are sculpted by different artists, the Mr. Death is done by Restore, and the 2 headed is by Knuckle, the mummy is by Motor Ken, who I have to admit I have never heard of or know anything about.
It's always kind of weird to see a non-woman figure from Rockin' Jellybean and none of these figures immediately trigger thoughts of his artwork. But many early Japanese street figures were inspired by hot rod and low brown/fink culture. All three of these seem to be paying tribute to that era of toy design. The raised toe is pretty much on every rat fink figure and is the obvious inspiration.
Huh. Ya learn something new every day! I will admit my knowledge on Fink culture is quite lacking which is ironic since fink and tiki culture go hand in hand... :/
one mummy, please
