I think 2012 will be remembered as the year in which the cost of collecting MOTUC increased every month, culminating in December, in which we have Mosquitor, Procrustus, and Granamyr.
GRANAMYR. I mean, holy ****, we’re actually getting a Granamyr figure!
Now, I stand by my slight disappointment that he won’t be able to stand up – which strongly contributes to my impression of him being the ideal decoration for a head shop, right next to the wizard bong* – but, frankly, how many of us would have posed him differently anyway?
Mattel released the packaging art and bio for Granamyr yesterday. Evidently Gran will be shipping disassembled to save space and shipping costs, which is fine with me.
I’ll get to the bio discussion at a later date. For now, let’s all appreciate Rudy Obrero‘s beautiful art. Click on either pic for the larger version.
*Note: Poe has never even seen a head shop much less been in one, despite living in San Francisco for a year back in the early ’00s. Yes, he was and is a total square. He assumes wizard bongs and dragon decorations are common in such places based solely on pop culture depictions of head shops and that Simpsons episode where Homer takes medical marijuana and Dr. Hibbert offers him two bongs, the “wizard or the skull.”
