Looks good Tony. Nice to see you have Teppic, not many people bought that one as it doesn't look like many readers vision as to what he looked like :)
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I wondered that about Teppic. He looks nothing like I imagined either. :D

To be honest, I got excited when the figures first came out, but that quickly changed to disappointment when I saw them. I've never liked the figures, but family members bought them for me for Christmas and birthdays. I tried to get enthusiastic and joined the Collectors' Guild, but that ended up being just so I could get the plaques - which I did kind of like. I also quite like the UU keys - but that was a collectors' Guild item as well.

Teppic is pants! :?
Why's he got a hunchback?

He's supposed to be bowing I think - it's the dodgy moustache that I dislike. Honestly, if it hadn't said "Teppic" on the box, I'd never have guessed who it was supposed to be. :lol:

I always thought that they started off modelling Victor "Can't sing, can't dance, can handle a sword a little" Tugelbend (Victor Maraschino) as a sort of Errol Flynn character bowing to an audience and then changed their minds and added the assassins bits and painted the costume black :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Now that would make a lot of sense - the moustache is certainly more like I'd imagine on Victor. :D

Teppic is definitely Victor :lol:

I'm sorry - I don't like any of the Clarecraft figures at all really, although I'm rather fond of my Death of Rats which was given me last month for my birfday...

I've retaken a lot of the photos so they aren't so bright. :D

Thanks Mad! It's amazing what natural light can do. I really wasn't happy with those original ones. :D

hey bigash! What is the cheapest clarecraft piece? I have always wanted one but they are always too expensive for me or I don't like the look of them.
