Bigfoot is Real, Part 4
A Bigfoot Menagerie
Here's my collection of Bigfoot figures, most of which I scored on eBay over the last few years. There are a few more that I own but haven't photographed yet, and many more that I have yet to obtain, and a few that I probably will never get my mitts on (both the Beastie Boys and the Six Million Dollar Man figures are way too expensive). But there's still no copyright on Bigfoot, hence the choice, ongoing variety.
Please don't feed the animals.
Notes: A plastic coin bank issued by Pacific Bank in the shape of their mascot (even though he's white, he was named Bigfoot). He's got a coin slot on his head, a plastic stopper on his bottom, and a dapper umbrella on his arm.
Name: Big Foot
Manufacturer: Milton Bradley
Notes: A prop from "Big Foot: The Giant Snow Monster Game." The goal is to amass gold in Alaska while avoiding Bigfoot. The figure is whitish on top (a dusting of snow?), and his feet stomp out little "footprint" discs around the gameboard. Made in U.S.A.
Manufacturer: Waddingtons (UK)
Notes: A prop from "The Bigfoot Game." The goal is to "race to the mountain top and be first to befriend Bigfoot." Unfortunately, the rods sticking out Bigfoot's side are so he can pivot on his "tree stump base," allowing him to "kick" little plastic boulders at you.
Manufacturer: Just Toys
Notes: A plastic bendie from the movie Harry and the Hendersons, copyright Universal Consumer Products/Amblin. Made in China.
Manufacturer: Shadowbox Collectibles
Notes: Heavy, comes with a little scroll with a few paragraphs about Bigfoot. Made in China.
Notes: More of a plush doll than an action figure, with removable jersey and trunks. Bought at the defunct Sonics team store. Can't find a manufacturer's tag in all his hair.
Notes: Has some felty fuzz covering his vinyl skin; accessorized with a chainsaw. Mine is stamped #437.
Notes: Comes with a little "plaster cast" of his footprint, loincloth. Made in China.
Name: The Bionic Sasquatch
Manufacturer: Tyke Witnes
Notes: This "Digital Manbeast" has fangs, orange eyes, and exposed bits of bionic circuitry here and there.
Notes: Designed by a San Francisco artist (also named Bigfoot). I'll happily trade my green one to anybody for a brown one (it also comes in a black/silver model).
Notes: This one's always on eBay, and comes with a stamp pad to make ink footprints.
Manufacturer: Toy Biz
Notes: Based on the Alpha Flight comic book character; has a zillion points of articulation; loincloth.
Notes: This "Big-Foot Paper Doll" by New Zealand designer Paul Shih may be printed out here... BIG-FOOT EXIST!
Notes: Picked up in Spokane Falls Community College bookstore. Has the SCC logo stitched onto the sole of the left foot with blue thread.
Name: Gary the Monster/Bigfoot
Notes: This horned, cloven character is called "Gary the Monster" in Little Nicky's closing credits, but is referred to as "Bigfoot" in the film's script.
Name: Bag "O" Squatch
Manufacturer: Kenny Lee
Notes: On the feet it says "#6 of 100 December 2007 Made by Kenny Lee," along with some cryptic Chinese character. Has a metal loop at base of his neck for hanging on an Xmas tree.
Manufacturer: Northern Gifts
Notes: As one of three mascots for Vancouver's 2010 Winter Olympics, Quatchi is far and away the best Bigfoot ever.
Manufacturer: Jack Link's Beef Jerky
Notes: A creepy Bigfoot bobblehead striking a Heisman, part of the Wisconsin jerky manufacturer's multimedia "Messin' with Sasquatch" campaign.
