SO MUCH FOR SLEEPING IN ON MY DAY OFF, THOUGH. :lol:
You and me both. I think I'm still sleeping in, I'll worry about the night drop and if I don't get it I don't get it. I get the impression "Santa" is going to probably be more akin to Odin, that he's derived from (aside from the St. Nicholas composite) with the flying horse etc.

I don't know that anything could really top the Headless Horseman, I wouldn't say Krampus in either color did.

I would be happy if it's a 4H version of Ralphie in his "Pink Nightmare" bunny costume. Maybe a 4H version of an Abominable Snowman / Bumble or a reindeer.

I got Santa. I like it and the Naughty or Nice Santa. A multiverse of Santas for me.

Pretty much exactly the type of Santa I wanted to pair with Krampus. Easy purchase for me!

I hope the variant is an Eastern Father Christmas - sort of like the look from the Russo-Finnish film Morozko (parodied on MST3K under the title Jack Frost).

Father Christmas. I dig it!

I bet they could create variants of this fellow through the years. They could do other characters like Jack Frost or a Sandman. They really could do just about anything.

This offering is so elegantly simple it could be a magical character or just a guy who wanted to bring some cheer. Very nice.

Thwipp!

Meh. A bit too precious for my tastes. And way too mainstream to be called FIgura Obscura, for that matter.

It looks fantastic. I just don't know that my collection needs such a straight up Santa. With how much else is vying for my money right now, I may just let this one go.

Dang all in sold out on under two minutes. Spent just a bit too much time looking at it and got cart jacked. Got the regular. 4H shipping costs are insane. If you buy all of the all-in items separately, the shipping is over $50! Even just a pack of cards and a pin was over $23! They really need to get that fixed if they’re going to have smaller items available. No wonder they still have Krampus cards. Nobody wants to pay more in shipping than the actual item is selling for. Might try again for the evening drop but wasn’t going to risk missing the figure.
