As much as I do feel they could look better (though I do like them as they stand), the plushes are more a piece of Oddworld history to me. It's the first time any of these characters have been rendered as an officially licensed physical model/toy. Maybe in the future we will get statues, figurines etc. But these plushes will always be the first

I've not been using Twitter and so only just noticed that ESC Toy have posted some pics of the finished KickStarter rewards (not sure why these weren't sent to backers in an update?)



Someone asked about changes to the prototypes - Munch is now grey not pink, which I must admit I prefer! Other than that, seems to be the same. There's also a photo of the PVC tags (Abe + Munch), which are stated to become available through the ESC Toy store. No mention of the Stranger tag that was the project add-on.



Backers can expect to receive them in January!

Yeah, the art style is somewhat different between the tags and plushes. Originally Munch plush was pink, while his PVC tag was always grey. Even the limited edition Lulu Munch tag seems to feature Munch drawn in a different style to his regular tag

I adore the PVC art style, I never knew the Oddworld cast could be so freaking cute.

I just received mine!

Edit: Currently carefully digging around Abe's head for the "on" switch to make him fart.

E:E:
Abe plush https://imgur.com/a/UkBj1

The lioncloths "simplicity" bugs me but the stitching at the seams are tight and very sturdy and put up fine during brief unfortunate
tug of war amoung toddlers before i
I saved him D:'
Those vultures ! Lol

The scars are stitched amazingly. I'm nitpicking at the design a bit but is well built and now farts when i hug 'im.

Overall happy to have this plushie

Nice, I've had shipping confirmation too. Looks like US customers are likely to get them before Christmas, overseas... not so likely

Couldn't see any image via your link! With regards to the sound effect switch/mechanism, are they accessible through any kind of velcro pocket or are they permanently stitched inside? If the latter, I guess the battery will die eventually
