Holy crap, this is freaking great! I think this is one of your best of all time! You even got that spooky spark demon in its mouth! I think even a Xenomorph would turn and run.

HAHA! Really? Thanks man, I have to admit, I wasn't too fond of this guy, but like Soar Throat, I think it was just a matter of finding a way to make it work FOR me!

Thanks dude! I'm keen to see your spin on this/these guys. I was never a huge fan of the figure, but I think taking that stab at him's made me more appreciative of the figure. Great interview on the podcast by the way dude!

Oh, I am *almost* of two minds on this one.

The first thing about the toy that kept catching my eye were the sneakers, so it's a little sad to see them gone. But I also have to consider why they caught my eye: They were goofy. Terribly, terribly goofy. So much that they felt out of place even by Kenner RGB standards. And once that hangup is out of the way..

Holy crap, man, this is magnificent. It's clearly still the same character... But now he is a nightmare, rather than a silly stray thought.

HAHAH! Thanks man, I really appreciate it! I know the sneakers are what people remember most about the guy, but they just didn't figure into what I wanted to do with him. That said, a heap of people said the same thing and it's made me think I should put them in there on a second version. ..

Heh heh heh, they don't make sparking toys any more!

Damn, you took that dinky little toy and made it look actually scary!

Mission accomplished then! Yeah, I thought exactly the same thing when I was putting the flames in there!

Good call leaving off the sneakers. Even when I was little I thought they looked a bit silly.

Aww... you didn't let him keep his awesome sneakers? ;-) They were the most terrifying part of the original figure! lol

I want to catch it! I want to trap it! I want to see it scaring people in my local cemetary! Seriously in love with the effects and colouring. Ican imagine all the ghosts you have reimagined realisticaly hanging out in the containment unit, would look so cool.

Sorry about spelling mistakes, eating biscuits.
