The Murks: Smurfs gone bad!
Ironhaus Productions--and by putting a dark spin on the famous stubby, hat-wearing, blue-skinned creatures--tap into the same kind of parody fun that makes something like Garbage Pail Kids so appealing. Or Trash Can Trolls (does anyone else remember Trash Can Trolls?).
There are currently two different Murks available as a pair, with Jimmy mentioning on his blog that a few more sculpts have been in the works and may become available depending on how the first ones do.
I especially like how one of the Murks appears to be a twisted version of Papa Smurf!
They're pretty well-timed, too, since Jakks recently released their Smurfs Micro Village mini figures. Which means that now you can have some demented fun by using the Murks terrorize your Smurfs village.
So, if you'd like to enrich your life by way of cool, mini, rubber, evil, Smurflike monsters, you can head on over to the Ironhaus store and grab some of these little weirdos for yourself.
