IMG_7382_original

It’s been a while since we last featured one of ManOrMonster? Studios‘ One-Off Wednesday releases, largely due to them selling out before we can get a post up, but this week’s was simply just too good to ignore… the awesome “Beast” Back Alley Brawler! An ingenious homage to Street Fighter’s green skinned mutant Blanka – more accurately, his 3.75″ GI Joe action figure interpretation – the one-off custom piece has been kit-bashed and re-sculpted from a variety of different vintage toys including Thundercats’ Mumm Ra and MOTU’s Hordak. Standing at around 5.75″ tall and featuring 4 points of WoW compatible articulation, the hand painted figure comes bagged with a custom header card for just $75 plus shipping. Check him out in the MoM? store right here before he inevitably makes a quick exit!
