Tiki R Annoyed
Well, not this one in particular. This is actually a MindStyle Stitch that an artist who goes by the terrific moniker of Peekaboo Monster has repainted into being a kind of iridescent pirate thingie.
No, it's just, there's SO MUCH that is cool Stitchie stuff to find and buy and appreciate, but the universe is tilted on its axis currently so much towards figure collecting, that all THEY seem to think I care about is figures. Thus all the super limited edition gotta-inherit-one-from-your-uncle-to-buy-it kinda thing. Which, I don't know about you, but my uncles tend to wanna drink beer and ride motorcycles and really couldn't give much of a spit about a little hunk of vinyl. Even if it is vaguely Stitch-shaped.
I dunno, am I just being an old grump? I mean, it's not as if something being rare and/or 'spensive is gonna prevent me from actually obtaining anything at this point.
I've got a bunch of APs now. So many, they've got their own photo set, here. Peekaboo seems to have gone particular batspit in decorating a bunch of figures (I agree with a friend who speculated he has pallets full of the things out in his garage and goes to paint one up every time he gets a little bored.)
