Fandango Figures 14 Apr, 2009, 15:20 / 11 comments

Through some clever molding and a lot of time, sculpture artist Iain Reekie has created what we all desire: Grim Fandango action figures. The Manny figure comes complete with skeleton bird and sausages Robert Frost, while Glottis looks straight out of a Tim Burton animation.

Not available in stores unfortunately, as that would prove God existed and so therefore he wouldn't. QED.

    Those are beautiful!

    Wow, those look amazing. Especially the Glottis one.
    I'd buy it in seconds flat! :D

    That's weird. I seem to remember reading this on the Mojo before.

    That's odd, because I had the same feeling. I wasn't sure if it was just deja vu or not though - I can't seem to recall any specific details.

    Specifically about Grim Fandango, or other games?

    It's the Manny figurine that seems familiar to me, but oddly not the Glottis one.

    Maybe I'm just remembering a different figurine someone else made or perhaps it's just a trick of the mind. Who knows?

    At any rate it's not terribly important - I mean it's so freaking awesome it deserves to be posted twice anyway. Wish I could buy one :(

    The Manny one was posted ages ago in the Grim Fandango forum on LucasForums, and the Glottis one a few months ago — maybe you saw them there.

    Clearly the best things in the world, though. I'd buy them if produced on a bigger scale instantly. ;

    Marvelous. He made some great choices, especially on the Glottis figure. The hair, eyes and teeth look terrific.

    That would be a balloon Robert Frost, Manny is holding...

    Tryin' to stump me, eh?

    Oh yeah, 'course.
