PostSubject: Centipede (Target Brands - Hyde and Eek! Boutique)   Fri Nov 03, 2017 12:29 am

OK, this is a rather fun and silly walk-around. I like to do reviews of obscure or unusual figures, or neat figures of odd or unfamiliar brands. Today I bring you the review of a centipede, gen. sp. by Target Brands, as part of their Hyde and Eek! Boutique line of Halloween decor. This past weekend I was visiting a friend in Minnesota for her annual Halloween party and when I walked into her house, this is the first thing I noticed! She took me to Target to get another, but they were out, so she gave me one of the two she had bought earlier!

The figure is LARGE, measuring 52 cm, not including appendages. It is articulated (see the third image) and can be manipulated to some degree. It is not super accurate from a scientific standpoint, especially given its size, but it's a fun figure nonetheless.

I also have a large stag beetle in this series, and my friend gave me a couple large cockroaches that may be in this series (you probably saw them all in General Acquisitions).

Really not much more to say, so on to the pics:

With my smallest centipede figure, a small hard plastic vintage figure (possibly inspired by the old Creepy Crawly Thingmakers sets):

If you are adventuring in Halloween figures, you will surely get scared if you try to get them all. Laughing
The figure has a certain level of interest, I think spiders are more common in that niche of market, so a centiped is something less trivial. Your small vintage figure is surely very interesting. :)
