    2018 12" Membership Figure Arriving

    Got mine in today's mail. I gotta admit, I really like it.

    But, mine arrived box unsealed. Nothing to stop someone from snagging the contents (or even keeping the lid from popping and the contents falling out). Anyone else have this? I've not had it before.

    Though I've never really paid attention (to the box as opposed to the goodies inside), but it seems like mine have only occasionally been sealed.
    The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs, trying to turn itself over but it can't. Not without your help.

    But you're not helping.

    With a comparative actually black and white photo. Not too bad, I think.

    Yea, I'll be doing some augmentation, but I planned too anyway. Gonna give him authentic Prototype "raccoon eyes", and lower/enlarge the pupil, and recolor the lips and scar.
