Dreams can come true...

If you have access to the Internet and a credit card.

In my trip to San Francisco last year I found a very cool tiny figure called Mini Gobi, the company that made him is Muttpop, and I said at that time that I wanted the figures from the Lucha Libre line Muttpop was doing.

But, at that time, I was one of two possible kinds of bastards:

1) A lazy bastard. Too comfortable to track this figures down.
2) A cheap bastard. Too greedy to buy the figures I wanted.

Well, I don't really like to call this personal growth, but Hell, I'm no longer cheap nor lazy since I tracked down those toys and I bought them like there was no tomorrow!

Yay me! (I think...)

Some of them got to me with the help of a dear friend of mine (more on him when I get to those toys).

Let's start with these.

I got this from an online toy store. First of all I got one of my Holy Grails Dr. Destruction.

According to his bio, Dr. Destruction is French, that explains his French mustache and the cigarette, because unless you are The Penguin you have to be French to smoke like that, right? Actually no, but hey, whatever, the figure is cool.

I really like the almost animé features of his smile. I can really see the artwork that lead to this figure. The cape, cane and cigarette are separate pieces, and you can display Dr. Destruction without them, but I don't know why would you want to do that. He looks so incredibly awesome.

There's almost no articulation but these are more like vinyl statues and not action figures, a shame since you can't really play with them and they look like awesome toys to play with.

Tequila is one of the big guys of the line. His bio says that he was raised by cacti, probably agave since his name is Tequila and that's the plant tequila is made of. I always thought tequila was distilled from drunken worms and broken dreams, a guy can be wrong y'know?

Tequila is great, the sculpt looks amazing and his poncho is removable. He was the first figure released by Muttpop, I couldn't get the original release of Tequila, but I didn't want to get one of the repaints (although there's a very very cool Incredible Hulk one...). Apparently the guys at Muttpop had us covered because they did Tequila 2.0

2.0 is Basically the same paint with a bloody fist and a blood splatter in his clothes. Fits perfectly for a guy that looks like this if you ask me.

These toys are great, and big, and for me are some of those things that you just know you need when you see them. Keep them coming Muttpop, and I'll keep buying them.

Did I mention they were big?

Until next time.
