Chain: PoC Storm Shadow Accessory

The American Greeting Company launched My Pet Monster in 1986. The plush doll was available in several sizes and always included a pair of plastic orange handcuffs. These could be worn by kids and could break apart. The toy also spawned a live action film and an animated series that ran for 13 episodes.

My Pet Monster-I vividly remember this doll, some cartoon episodes, and seeing numerous commercials. I remember wanting it for Christmas one year, but not getting it. I do believe that was around the year where we had some financial struggles, and we didn't get much at all. As a kid, you don't understand, as a parent, you do :-) . I got over it pretty quick. While researching some 80's properties for the project, this guy came up and brought back some memories. I'm not used to making non human customs, so this one was a nice change of pace, and a different challenge, as the joints and rubbing points were different from Joes. I lucked out in Beast had blue fur to begin with, so that helped out. Instead of going cute and cuddly on him, I went the actual Monster look. I'll save the cute and cuddly for later in the reveals.
