Background

If you’ve ever seen David Horvath’s work, you know that he is a fan of the paranormal and unexplained.  In the past, he teamed up with Wonderwall to release his take on the Mothman, Flatwoods Monster and Chupacabra legends.

But David and Sun-Min have self-released a new line called the UMA Super Market Toys SeriesMothman vs. The Flatwoods (Green Monster of Braxton County) is the 1st set from these grocery store inspired collectibles.

These figures are based on real entities and actual events which took place in West Virginia between 1952 and 1967.  Mothman can still be seen to this day.  You don’t believe in creatures living on a planet in outer space?  Isn’t that what you are?  Giant corporations and a “powerful” few have been telling us what is and isn’t real for far too long.  And not just about aliens.

Packaging

The play set is bagged and carded similar to the toy sets you’d find randomly placed at your favorite super market.  Each figure is individually bagged so you won’t have to worry about paint exchange.  The information above is listed on the header card, as well as illustrations of the characters.
