REVIEW: Rocket World’s Sasquatch and Yeti



For ages, Sasquatch and Yeti have been living as myths and in the shadows of the human world.  With the introduction of the internet and email, Sasquatch and Yeti were able to meet and fall in love over the web.  Learning of each other and then of the I.nsurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo, they knew they had to join forces to fight against the bad humans who have been polluting their wilderness homes and killing their furry friends.


These figures are the latest addition to Rocket World’s IWG line.  They are the first mythical creatures, as all of the others are modeled after actual animals.  These are modeled after Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman…err…Snowwoman.


The window-front box is designed in the same fashion as past IWG figures.  It’s a little larger than the rest of the line, but that might be due to larger figures.
