Tom, Scot, Patrick, Robert, Steve, Marc and Darryl, 'twas a pleasure.  I don't know if anyone noticed but the set did contain a first.  Though the great Paul Harris has designed countless Wacky gags this is the first time his art has been printed.  So we all get add a Harris to our collections this Holiday!

LOL!  Joe, you're being far too kind, but it's greatly appreciated.  You did so much work on this, and I'm still amazed
at how the "extra surprise" turned out, make no bones about it! 

And kudos to Mark as well for his generous contribution!

Brian, cool looks like the post office did fast work on this one!  At this rate most everyone should have theirs by the end of the week!

time for a pic, I think.
I skipped out on the toy this time, so I'm eager to see what little cool thing was put together this year

Kevin, Chad, Dennis, Mark, Mike and Dave it was truly a blast putting it together and myself, Paul and Mark are so glad it's brought a little Forum Holiday cheer.  Dave that's so cool that your daughter dug it!  I wasn't sure it would have appeal outside of the Wacky crowd.

Got my treats yesterday, and I think they're fantastic!  Thanks so much to the three of you!!

Now, the standard collector quandary - leave it in the package or tear it open?!?

Steve and Pat so glad you enjoyed them.  Pat since it was hand done, I'd say you could remove the staple and display the Bony toy.  Then at some future date re-staple it and voila MIP once again!

Patrick, well not sure if everyone had received theirs and knowing you're very technically minded here's a pic of the 3D model I made which the toy was made from.

Scot, I suspect you're referencing the correct gag but it actually dates back a little further than that.

It's wonderfully done!  I want to feed the poor thing...........................

Did you use a 3D printer?

Pat that is too funny!   I never thought of it as being skinny just Bony!

Yes, the model was 3D printed and then molded, cast up, painted and packaged.  The family chipped in so I was able to get them done in time.

Scot, you know, casting as in pouring a liquid material (metal or resin) into a mold to make a cast from the mold.  I've attached pics of casting the Bony.

Jim, my pleasure and dead is a problem it should have arrived undead.  Just give a second look, perhaps it is undead but just playing dead!
