Waaaay late on this one, but so what? To get caught up, read Part 1.
The package said ten days and they weren’t lying. That’s about how long it took for these guys to reach their maximum size. And then they continued to sit in those glasses of water. I even changed the water a few times as if they were fish who needed fresh water. I just didn’t want to deal with doing this post and I didn’t want to take them out and have them shrink up again. So every few days, they got fresh water until I was ready to take pictures.
Y’know, right before typing up this post, I realized I don’t really have a point of comparison for how much this things grew. I mean, seriously, they got pretty big. I didn’t think they would, but they did. Oh well. Too late now. The woman threw them out today. =\
These figures grew so big, their colors were fading from being stretched so much and their paint job was even cracking. Santa particularly took an awful beating looking like he had been chewed up, partially digested and then thrown up.
Awwwww… Isn’t a fully grown Rudolph the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? This shot makes having three glasses of water sitting on my kitchen counter for 2 weeks taking up space sooooooooo worth it. He looks kind of like a chihuahua. Notice the whites of his eyes and chest hair are barely holding it together.
Look at Bumble in the back, apparently, he’s being held up by a mugger stationed off-camera.
I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve seen a guy in a Santa suit passed out cold on the ground looking just like this while lying in a puddle of something or another. He looks gross and he felt gross. For some reason, he was completely slimy and the only figure to be so. Ewww….
