REVIEW: Franken Monkey Resin Figures

Background

Out on his own and ready to explore. Our curious little friend escaped from the lab just in the nick of time...or did he?

Atomic Monkey has created a few new products based on their monkey mascot.  The Franken Monkey resin figure has been designed and sculpted by Roberto Jhareghi and is available in 4 different colors.

Packaging

The Franken Monkey resin figures are boxed in a rather ordinary brown cardboard box.  There’s not much reading, nor are there any product photos on the box.  The resin figure is securely packed in styrofoam, to avoid any breaking.

The Figures

The 3” tall Franken Monkey resin figure is currently available in 4 different colors – black, brown, green and pink.  The sculpt is similar on all of the colorways, however there are some slight differences in the color combinations.  The character is in a Frankenstein-like pose, with its tongue hanging out.  They are all secured to a black, circular stand for easy displaying.

Come meet the every-bully, Fist Face, and his many victims, real and imagined, from November 10 - December 4, 2006 at Wootini in Carrboro, NC. Celebrate his glory and defend the defenseless with us on Friday November 10, 2006, from 7pm - midnight.

The Octonauts and the Only Lonely Monster

1597020052_lg

Those of you who enjoy reading...or can read...might enjoy this!  Immedium proudly announces the publication of The Octonauts: The Only Lonely Monster,
written and illustrated by the popular design team known as Meomi. This
title introduces The Octonauts, a crew of adorable animals who roam the
oceans in search of adventure, treasure, and fun!

From their undersea base called "the Octopod", the Octonauts
explore a colorful world full of thrills, chills, and gills. The crew
of eight talented critters, including a brainy octopus, brave polar
bear, daredevil kitten, and scientific sea otter, is always ready to
embark on a new exciting voyage.

In this debut episode, the Octonauts encounter a giant sea
monster! What will they do? After taking a deep breath, the crew
discovers it is a case of mistaken identity. Certainly they can help a
giant sea monster find others of his kind, but there is a hook: is he
the only one left in the ocean? So, the Octonauts cheerfully proceed to
explore the seven seas and see exotic locales and fantastic creatures.
Along the way, everyone learns the special value of friendship and
individuality.
