Play With This Walrus Too!

I just got a news update from the Play With This Too! Kickstarter that I wrote about before. Two new characters have been added to their line-up;

Obviously, my request for a Not-Longtooth hasn’t fallen on deaf ears. Apparently, a third walrus-humanoid is on his way. Here’s hoping his armour is blue, and he has a peg-leg.

So, what to say about Count Tuskula and Lord Tangent Von Tuskuleser? They’ve got a nice, solid body shape, presumably they’ll have the same impressive articulation that existing PWTT prototypes have. The square black patches on their armoured collars remind me of Battle Beasts, the little rubber animal-men with stabby weapons and sadly easy-to-break shoulders, not the female-fronted metal band.

These two things aren't quote the same.

These two things aren’t quite the same. You’d be forgiven for mistaking one for the other though.

In particular, Lord Tangent’s colouration calls to mind series 2 Battle Beast Wolfgang Walrus. As with Catastropheles and Calamitous Haagenti, PWTT have managed to mash-up several 80s toy references into an aesthetically-unified whole. This Kickstarter is kicking a hole in my wallet.
