The Rhaal have become deformed and delirious from our toxic waste, pollution, and the over fishing of the waters. They are retaliating with prejudice and fury. We have provoked a slumbering giant. Rhaal is the high cost to our blind consumerism…”

Limited to a run of just 8 hand cast resin pieces, the 5″ tall non-articulated figures each come dyed in a variety of vibrant Monster Kolor hues. Currently available in the Gorgoloid store right here, these signed and dated blanks will set you back just $70 each plus shipping…
