Damn. I was hoping it would be Clay Fighter.

It's a video game that came out on N64. The characters were molded out of clay and you would fight with them Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat style. It is one of my favorite game series of all time.

The originals were basically TMNT sized, both being made by Playmates. So between 4”-5” depending on character.

I'm liking the size, and everything looks great.

Also yes, Clayfighter was awesome. Would buy a Bad Mister Frosty so fast.

How will they scale with Mezco's? (Which I totally thought was NECA until I just Googled to make sure my memory was correct, which it wasn't...)

They claim to be 1/12th so they should be fine

I mean, if these actually come out, I have the whole series preordered on BBTS, so it's not like I wanna use Mezco's with them. Was just curious, since the only vintages I have are Jim & monster Peter, but both are in storage (the Mezco one is too, but I've seen it more recently, lol).

I had these in my cart on the Premium DNA site but didn't pull the trigger. A while later I got a coupon for 10% off my first order. Still not sure if I'll do it.

Does anyone know when approx. the Banjo Kazooie set will be out? All I can find is Q1 2023 but have no idea how accurate that listing it (or if Premium DNA are like Mezco/Mafex and theres a good chance it will be pushed back)?

BBTS Exclusive Boxer Shorts Jim

Hopefully an indication that things will actually get produced for the line.

Also kind of shocked that Jim has robot legs. I don’t know what I thought was under there, but it wasn’t that.

I was wondering if Premium DNA was going to deliver. I hadn't heard anything about them for a while (granted I don't follow their social media, just hear about them here). The new BBTS listing says, "Ships Summer 2023 along side Earthworm Jim Series 1 Action Figures (sold seperately)!" So it sounds like BBTS is confident at least.
