Canadian illustrator Patrick Wong presents his latest privately commissioned art toy, entitled Snow Pilot Killa Instinct. The 10-inch tall hand-painted one-off creation "plays off the urban vinyl / graffiti-inspired graphics of the original figure with the addition of the classically styled b-boy Kangol striped hat. Further emphasizing the graffiti and Hip Hop associations, Wong takes up the Pilot marker and snow camouflage military graphic motifs - the Pilot Brand's stripes being the street bomber's weapon of choice and signifying one of the best, sought-after markers in the graffiti canon."

The R.A.M.S. (Rebel Army of Military Sheep) and the P.O.R.K.S. (Platoon of Rebel Killer Swine) were rival groups of farm animals that somehow got into radioactive materials left over from an abandoned military experiment. Was it a big government conspiracy that they were trying to trick little kids into thinking that radioactive waste creates wonderful monsters rather than causing cancer and/or a painful death?
Playmates, which also released those other mutants – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, produced the toy line. In all, there were 16 characters produced – 8 P.O.R.K.S. and 8 R.A.M.S. There was also a 13-episode run of cartoons that’s likely still available at your local Blockbuster Video in VHS form.
I went on eBay and picked up a trio of Barnyard Commandos – all from the P.O.R.K.S. lineup. When I received them, I noticed the first one had a bubble that was slightly opened on the bottom.
