Since we’ve moved production to a new factory, we’ve had to adapt to their different process of production. A welcome and unexpected change to the process is their vinyl approval process. Before doing any paint tests for the figures, the factory pulls vinyl rotocasts of the figures from silicone molds. Photos of the vinyl rotocasts are submitted for Muttpop’s approval. Curiously, the new factory uses a “non-colored” vinyl that is a slightly translucent pearl white plastic. The factory sprays the figures with a mist of brownish-gray paint to accentuate the details of the figure. Even in the crude pictures that were sent to us, we knew that both “Raw” editions of the figures had to be made. Here they are. “Raw” and “Smoked” versions of El Panda, Red Demon, and Mini Gobi. As with previous Raw editions, each figure comes in an unprinted package and a super limited run. Only 20 figures of each “Raw” and “Smoked” figure will be made.

these are awesome, but only 20, sod me for being a completist, ill sell my soul to Muttpop, honest.
Man I need to get me some of these.
I bet I get my hands on at least 3 of these , anyone a gambler?
Very appealing, any hand drawn boxes to stoke the mania ?
These feel more like Qee than the original RAW Tequila & El Panda figures were. Interesting though. BTW - haven't seen any El Panda customs. Are they out there? Anybody know/gotpics?
What's up folks. Thanks for your responses.
We're looking to sell these exclusively through our Website Newsletter. If you requested to subscribe to the newsletter at firstname.lastname@example.org you should get an e-mail newsletter sometime this week. If you haven't received anything by Friday that means you ought to send us another e-mail. An e-mail announcement regarding the Raws and Smoked figures will probably go out in late April (around the time the figures have safely arrived). As with the El Panda Original Raw, we will do a lottery system to ensure that everyone has a fair chance at a Raw and/or Smoked figure.
Good luck and thank you.
