Dianoga trash monster

Post by Nico on Sun Jan 29, 2017 5:19 pm

Hi guys, the Dianoga trash monster that was released with US Death Star play set, is this green monster made of a solid hard plastic or a rubbery more flexible one  scratch

From memory Andy, the one I have has some flexibility to it (I haven't handled it for a l-o-n-g time as it's in storage somewhere  scratch  lol! ).

They are made of a rubbery plastic that is most similar to the limbs of most standard figures - maybe just a slight bit more flexible then the limbs are though however .

On a side note: When having the Dianoga in my hand for the first time, I was surprised by it's sculpt.
I always assumed it was kind of Loch Ness monster having the eyes and mouth in the head part. But the mouth is located in the main body part.
Am I the only one? Very Happy

I also concur they're rubbery. I've had more than one in the past (only have one right now in my own collection), and the neck is pretty bendy. The rest is a little more rigid, but still fairly flexible. The mouth sculpt also took me by surprise.

Larry, that guy advertises on kijiji a LOT. He is also a guy who overprices everything he has. Not sure if it's still his policy, but he also refused to ship, even to someone like me who lives 15 minutes from Hamilton.

I'll keep my eyes open for more, for everyone still looking for one. Smile

Awesome picture James bowwing

Thanks again for everyone's input  cheers I just assumed that it would be made of a more solid plastic and when this rubbery type thing came out of the jiffy bag I thought WTF  affraid , however I do think it’s a cool figure, I like the octopus type sucker rings on the underneath and  the mouth is well sculpted despite being in a mad place  rockon

Maybe one day they'll do a 6" Black Series set with it, and then it'll probably be a decent scale to the 3 3/4" line. Smile
