Dixiebull - I didn't even know there was a ring until you said something!  SO I wondered what it looked like (and did some googling).  I thought I would post a pic here in case anyone else was curious too.

I somehow also missed that a ring exists. I see from a UoM blog post that pic was from an auction a few years back. Is this the only example known or have others been spotted?

Dr. Bo won the ring for $53.  Maybe he would provide some hi-res photos and such.  This is his blog:

I'm about 1/2-1/3 of the way there....is it just me, or are the 'flesh' versions much harder to find in the wild?   I wish they'd have continued the line.  Just imagine the malformed and diseased freaks we would have gotten!

Dude, I wanna know how you did it, considering I bought most of your collection a few years back. I'm finding it super hard in the UK getting anywhere close to finishing.

I bought 3 lots (60 bucks total) over 2 years time...One lot had 9 flesh figures and the other 2 had 30 figures combined. I traded the flesh figures and the remaining colored figures for the ones I needed. I then sold off the remainders. I got 2 of the final 3 from Bladerunner (thanks man) and bought the last one! Took some work and alot of searching!! How many do you need now!!
