If you’re a reader of the Sunday Comics, you might have seen (and even read) the rather popular strip named Mutts – by Patrick McDonnell. Dark Horse has the license to produce figures of the Mutts characters, and recently launched two lines of figures: Vinyl and PVC.
Working directly with Patrick McDonnell and the sculptors at Yoe! Studio, Dark Horse brought main characters, Mooch and Earl, to vinyl form in 8-inch tall rotocast figures. They also released a boxed set of 4 PVC includes Mooch, Earl, Shtinky and Guard Dog.
Both lines have similar box artwork, as well as being window-front. I give the advantage to the PVC packaging due to what’s on the back of the box. The vinyl figures simply have a photo of the alternate vinyl figure, however, the PVC set has a comic on the rear (as well as character drawings).
