Mighty Muggs are one of those toys that I somehow never really talk about here, which is a shame. My Mugg collection (or Mugglection) continues to grow with each series released, so my shelf has guys like Dr. Doom comparing capes with Cobra Commander. My favorite, however, is Mighty Muggs Hulk. His crooked teeth, his unibrow, I don't know. I laugh every time I look at him!
I keep looking at the designer vinyl toys and, while I find a LOT that I enjoy, the price keeps me away from 99% of them. I do own some and really enjoy them, but really, $40 for a 6" toy? Man, I'm on the wrong end of the toy equation. I've gotta start making the figures instead of photographing them.
Hugg was taken at Chicago's Garfield Park Conservatory, and excellent indoor garden that is free to the public. If you're in the area, please check it out.
All Photoshop had to do was tweak the Lab Colors and hit Save As. SO EASY!
Why Hugg's pants turn EXIF?
