Nice. I'm definitely planning to pick up a Paw! when the restock hits.

I was wondering - does Paw or Jaws have any articulation? Like, in the neck maybe? For a long while I somehow felt like "toys" had to have some articulation, but I'm revising my thoughts on that. I mean, all of the COARSE stuff looks like it doesn't need any articulation at all. BUT - I do love the reposition-able shark helmet.

The Paw! has no articulation whatsoever. I kinda feel the same way about "toys" and articulation, but the Paw! does very nicely as a solid statue. A quote from Mark:

For me making figures isn't really about making toys. Its more like making statues.


That should explain the lack of articulation. I also agree that Mark's toys don't really need any articulation; the surreal feeling they can cause is enough to keep me in awe and stop me from thinking "does this arm move," or "does the head turn?" I think the arms and legs of the Jaws may swivel, or the head may turn, but those are just assumptions. Doesn't really matter though, 'cause they still look awesome. The bite of the shark alone is enough for me. :D
