"I grew up reading every issue I could get my hands on of marvel comics resident swamp monster, the Macabre Man-Thing. Having worked in the toy and collectibles industry for over 30 years it's so awesome to finally have the opportunity to do my own version of one of my all-time favorite comic book monster heroes. I hope all you vinyl figure and comic book fans out there like what me and the folks at Mondo have put together for you. It was a blast to work on." - James Groman
"James Groman is a legend in the toy world, and an artist I have looked up to for as long as I can remember. Never in a million years did I think I would get to paint a Groman piece, let alone have it be such a unique character in the Marvel mythos. I really wanted to do something different with these paints, so I instantly knew I needed two main colors: Pink and Blue.
James' main version turned out so great that this was no easy task ... and was frankly intimidating! There's just so much ground to cover on this sculpt, so many wonderful details and little hidden items throughout, that finding all the right colors that spoke with the Pinks and Blues wasn't easy! In the end, I think I found the right balance and I'm really proud of the result!
I hope everyone digs this wild, colorful, psychedelic version of our favorite swamp monster! And a huge thank you to James for trusting me to do something fun with his sculpture." - Hector Arce, Creative Director Toys and Collectibles.
