Folkloric forest monsters like Bigfoot captivate man because of their harrowingly enigmatic combination of savagery and loneliness. Plus, chipmunks totally bite the big one. Now, some new creatures are here to stalk your imagination: Macrodons
Based on the color-soaked abstract paintings of award-winning Dallas artist Billy Zinser, Macrodons're 3- to 4in tall, blob-bodied limited-edition plastic art toys presented as scale models of gargantuan headless mythic creatures that roam Earth unbeknownst to our senses, also known as Canadians. Highlights from the current series
With a craggy, almost spherical physique, this wrinkly behemoth's got a bluish-grey topside, a reddish pink undercarriage, and five elephantine legs, just like the titular character in Horton Hears a 'What Kind of Evil Freak Elephant Is That With Five Legs?'
An upright-stander with broad shoulders and arms that drag the ground, this purple-and-green guy resembles a steroid-jacked headless Gumby, whose shrunken balls make it basically impossible for him to Pokey anyone
Related protoplasmic forms in bright yellow with orange bellies, one sports a sleek body with stubby bulldog-ish legs, while the other proudly shows off numerous pairs of teets, and is just happy to be getting its first work since Total Recall
Others available include just-released 1.5in "Macrodon minis", plus Series 1 leftovers and their matching gouache-acrylic paintings, because there's no combination of savagery and loneliness quite like the grown man who only decorates his home with toys.
