From McFarlane's Monsters series 4.

That's one ******-up Red Riding Hood.

I don't even know what to say to that ??? :o ::) :-X

I won't be buying it.  I may even be afraid of someone that does.

McFarlane's toys used to have a slightly creepy feel to them.

Now they're all about the gross-out. I guess the success of the first series of Tortured Souls went to their heads.

I mean, who the hell is going to want a scantily clad she-bitch with an eviscerated wolf on their shelf?

I have most of the first series of TS on my shelves, not to mention Elizabeth Bathory, Attila the Hun, and Jack the Ripper from the last Monsters series, but this is going a bit far.

Holy lick, I didn't notice that until you pointed it out.  I think Mr. McFarlane may have gone just a tad overboard on this one.   :-X

Yeah, I noticed it right away.  I was looking at it and thinking, hmm, she eviscerated the wolf and......holy ****, that's disgusting.  And well, not overly realistic either - the wolf ain't THAT big.  Riding hood herself isn't all that disturbing, it's the accessory.

I'm all for the twisted thing. But this one for me is just too much.

I'm sure it'll be like Dorothy in the Oz line- this will be the only figure in the series that's hard to find. :)

I kind of like Gretel, she's the best of the bunch. That Red Riding Hood though is disgusting

MWC Toys

The good Mr. Crawford has a review of the McFarlane Dragons boxed set up.
I can't wait to find these. They're going straight to the top of the bookshelf next to the Alien Queen. ;D

Pretty kick ass Military figures from McFarlane.



A couple of these appear to come in black/white variants.
