    Thanks for digging those photos out Moog, as they aren't something I had seen before. While I think I have preference for the resin Shedorah, I certainly think those Marmit versions are well done and have been executed well. Hey, no saying I can't have enough she-smoggy love to go around. Though actually, personally, I much prefer the original artwork shown there - presumably by Liz. Not sure if that is standalone inspiration or might form the header for the figures, but I dig it.

    There are 3 Karzworks versions, kneeling, standing and mermaid.Pics on the Marmit insta.

    Not to further derail, but just to clarify my earlier comments and bring some focus back to the main topic of this thread - I like @happiness bastard's version because it homages a classic '50s mermaid figurine aesthetic* , in 'alluring' siren pin-up pose that has been mimicked much subsequently. I just love it because it reminds me very much of cheesy souvenir figurines or the wonderful Mold-a-Rama machine toys (does anyone else remember that awesome subscription project years back?)
    * or so I would have believed, but darned if I can't find it now

    Need to be careful what I post here, as venturing into NSFW territory, but this is the sort of thing I meant, in pose only (though really not at all the item, sadly)


    Though of course the arms down version has also been used in a similar way,
    These ones at least capture what I was trying to go on about above, even if I could not find the version of it I was looking for.


    And I feel like the Marmit toy, while also very excellently rendered in its own right, is going for a somewhat different look, and has more modern sofubi renderings in it (and is very Hedorah-y).

    In any case, both are cool, and I am happy to see the concept re-envisioned, but would also like to keep the credit and appreciation/discussion for this thread to the original Shedorah topic.

    This is actually what he was going for. I still have 2 of the originals.

    Hey there folks!
    I happened upon this thread recently and I thought I could add a little clarity to the topic ^_^
    I am the sculptor of the Marmit Shedorah. (Hi, I'm Liz) When I started on the sculpt, I was unaware of the preexisting Shedorah. I thought I was being clever adding an "S" in front of Hedorah, lol. I love drawing monster ladies, so I thought it was a cute idea and just went with it.
    The sitting poses do appear similar. I sculpted her this way to make an easier one part mold. I imagine it was the same for the other artist ;)
