|When a vinyl part is pulled at the factory, there's excess plastic jutting out. That's cut off one piece at a time with an exacto knife.|
|Two holes were also punched in the bottom, and the band was tied in place there, completing the figure.|
|The elastic bands let you stretch the figure and pose it with a lot of flexibility.|
|A kind of natural point of articulation at the neck is also created, as the head easily swivels left and right, and even up and down to a degree. It's a flash induced ball joint!|
|The arms also articulate, which is very cool.|
Plastic pontificating aside, the figure is downright fun!
Luke isn't sure how he'll be selling/distributing these yet. They're labor intensive, but he wants to keep the price super low - maybe even in the single digits. So really this figure, if it moves forward, is about hooking up dedicated Grody fans with something fun and different.
I hope we'll have a chance to see some flash monster mobs form in the future!
