    Harry, A Radioactive Ape By RedMakiToy

    On 26th April 1986, at 01:23, Chernobyl's number 4 nuclear reactor exploded, releasing large quantities of radiation and contaminating an enormous area of the Soviet Union. This forced the government to quickly evacuate the entire human population, but nobody took care of the animals. Two weeks after the disaster, a baby monkey was born in Prypiat's zoo. Radiation must have affected him, for he was evidently different from all of his kind.

    Harry is a 6" resin figure with lots of detail, from his radiation gloves to his skull-bearing barrel of toxic waste.  But the really intriguing feature of of this piece is Harry's teeth.  Harry's teeth are made from real bamboo.  Now that's attention to detail.

    Harry is available for pre-order now from RedMakiToys and will ship in August.  This a 200 piece limited run.

    RedMakiToys is also running a contest to design the packaging for Harry.  Get your design in my July 5th and you could win $100 and Harry figure.
