Thanks for the feedback - I obviously have more than a healthy affinity for this line. This is where my imagination always took these characters in my mind. After over 10 years of practice as a customizer, I finally had the skill to make them a reality on my toy shelf. I don't have a website but you can see more of my customs on thIs site:
I sent Toyfare some Inhumanoids pics last week, so keep on the lookout for an article in upcoming issues. I really gotta setup something to take good pics with a white background, the bed sheet really isn't cutting it.

Hey guys. I'm 34 -- I've got sons who are 4 and 18 months now.
Thankfully I've still got a toy box w/ a bunch of my old toys. I've got mostly Transformers. Got some GI Joes, a couple of He-Man toys (I really regret giving most of my He-Man collection to one of my cousins). Also got assorted other toys. Found a visionary.
d'compose and tendril are 10 kinds of awesome! metlar not so much. this line suffered the most on the earth corp figures and there wacky proportions and goofy head sculpts. not to mention they were essentially bendy blocks. absolutely love the toon though and have it complete on dvd :-)
"I'm actually keeping a couple of duplicate trees in case they grow on me..."
Pun Intended lol?
I remember I wanted Metlar very badly and asked (begged) my Godmother for it for my birthday. Tbh I didn't even know there were human figures, only knew or cared about the monsters. Well I got the package from my aunt in the mail and it was one of the trees (the orangish one with green eyes) and while I was disappointed at first I grew to love it. It displayed very well and when the sunshine/light went through the green plastic on the top of his head his eyes lit up green pretty awesomely. He ended up getting chewed by the dog but that is another story. If I could have any of these I would probably want that tree guy back. I'll bet the decompose guy is hard to find because no mother would allow their child to get something so utterly distasteful lol. Tbh the figure is a little creepy.

I never saw any of the figures for these but I LOVED the show. It was creepy and disturbing and a little grotesque even. Especially Decompose. Well I have to face the fact that it wasn't well-made. MOre of a trainwreck you have to watch. It had some great ideas and concepts. The dialogue was just too melodramatic
