PRODUCT-DESCRIPTION-CONTINUES: Bob has painted each of his 5 figures in a slightly different color scheme with various brain and arm inserts that can be seen through the clear part of the skull and arm. Both figures are made from clear vinyl produced in Japan.

BACK-STORY: "TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE" or so the story goes. They met in 1956 at Paradise Ranch aka Area 51 millitary testing facility in southern Nevada. The Skulloctopus was a survivor of a flying saucer crash thought to have come from the planet Mars and General Kyoufu, a bio-cyborg soldier the government was experimenting on to create the ultimate killing machine.

It was a match made in Hell and to make the most of it they exchanged heads as a symbol of their alliance before escaping into the moonlit desert.
