Mighty Warsaurus (Chap Mei 1990s)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bucky O' Hare, Cow-Boys of Moo Mesa, Cyboars, Earthworm Jim... Street Sharks, Dinosaucers, and Extreme Dinosaurs... If you take a look at the kind of stuff that came out throughout the 90s, you'll come to the conclusion that mutants, especially cyborg mutants, were pretty popular during this time period. The 90s were also heyday for all sorts of cheap knock-off toys jumping the bandwagon.

Battle Gaze Homophobos (BigManToys 2011)

If you're under 18, please stop reading now. If you won't get the point of a MotU bootleg with an ultra gigantic penis, please don't read any further either. Because what's about to be revealed now, is the "Real Mature Stuff".

You probably know, that I've gotten into resin art toys. One of my favorite artists these days is Lee Burbridge, the mastermind behind BigManToys. He's got famous for his Treegarr figure, which is nominated for the year's best resin piece at the Clutter Designer Toy Awards. Treegarr is a sick figure, and I hope it gonna win! (Even though "toy awards" don't mean a thing to me.) But I tell you what. The piece I got from BigManToys in the mail today is sicker! It's called Homophobos, from the Battle Gaze line, Lee's early creative period.
