I’m sure any kid growing up during the 1980’s will have wanted their own Pet Monster. 30 years later Creepy Co is looking to bring back My Pet Monster in vinyl form, so now may well be your chance! We f’n love it. It’s hard to forget such an iconic figure from our youth, so once these become available we’ll defo be trying to snag one for the TTC HQ collection!
[quote cite=”Creepy Co”]In celebration of this milestone, Creepy Co. brings you a vinyl toy homage to everyone’s best bud of a beast. Hybridizing various character iterations over the 3-decade span of his existence, our semi-articulated toy takes cues from the classic form, both in construction and color. We’ve sprinkled in hints of “Neo Kaiju” and a reference or two to the time-weathered 1986 plush toy: the missing length of chain hearkens back to our own Monster’s forever-lost cuffs, and the smoothness of the form itself calls out years of tamped-down fur from his watchpost on our shelves.[/quote]
When launched there will be 500 of the ‘Classic’ My Pet Monster colourway, but there will be two other variants available too with 100 of each. Below you’ll be able to see one of the other colour variants, we’re not sure on the third colourway at this time. My Pet Monster will be produced in partnership with Shinbone Creative and Saban Brands and will stand at 6inches tall with articulation in the head, arms & wrist joints.
