That's a surprisingly apt comparison, assuming you keep the toy's face-mask on. I have a CaRB (the second model they released) on my desk right now and another in the mail. It has these weird mangled hands and it can still do handstands! Such high quality on these guys. Perhaps not as 'artsy' as a lot of art toys, but by far the most fun toy I own.

Also I've heard the blue nozzel mentioned a few times - is it super rare or something?!?

Sorry if that's a silly question, I've only been into these little guys for a year or two.

Yeah, the blue nozzel is one of the rarest squadts - 15% of the run of the GID NKD nozzel were 'blueys' - I don't _think_ there is a definitive answer on how many were made but it's probably less than 50. blueGID

350 was the whole run.
15% are exactly 47.5 blueys. ;-)

I guess the 1/2 is really the rarest!

hah cool - I didn't know the run was 350. Very Happy

edit: looks like it was rounded up a little or something:

Yeah - I think the Petro is probably 50 too. - what with it being a retail run and it was 1 in 10 for the Petro.

I'm happy for you! Always feels so satisfying to pick up a grail piece after searching for a long time. I've really started appreciating Kenny Wong's designs after owning one of the Copperhead-18 1/6 figures; if Ferg somehow did another collab I would be all over it.
