"Puck" figure from Uncanny Critters... up for pre-oder TODAY!!!

Matthew Dennall, an artist based in South Yorkshire in the UK, shares with us today a new designer toy product that he has been working on and is up for grabs in his store... called Uncanny Critters. This toy is the first toy made by Matthew and this line of figures will be based on British folklore. This particular figure is called "Puck" which is an old word for a forest goblin. Matthew goes onto mention "I was inspired by the Shakespeare character of the same name (also known as Robin Goodfellow) who looked more like a faun but rather then having the wild hair all over, I covered my puck with strange wooden growth that protects him like a crab shell because he is the roughest of the characters I will be creating." A very strange looking creature indeed... standing 4" tall, Puck has articulation in the head and shoulders and is hand painted. This figure is in the classic "goblin green" colorway for his skin and reddish brown for his barky bits.... but look for other versions in the near future! If you dig this as much as we do, head on over HERE right now to pre-order this beast for just $49 a pop!
