Trasher! Let's take a closer look at them after the break...
Height: 2 1/4 inches
Original Year of Release: 1991
* I love the headsculpt of the Sewerot. Doesn't he kind of look like Abe Sapien from Hellboy? This guy came out about three years before Abe Sapien, so he's clearly not based on Abe Sapein, though; Was Mike Mignola a fan of the Trash Bag Bunch? Who knows? This is a great looking minifigure, though.
* The Sewerot is posed in a pretty normal, neutral pose, which actually works really well for an army builder. I also like that he's toting a pipewrench. That just seems like a nasty weapon, don't you think?
* I wasn't that big of a fan of the neon speckling on Dr. Sheen, but I'm loving the spray effect on Sewerot. I'm also loving the loud and proud purple and yellow color scheme. There are actually a few different shades of purple and yellow here, so that just adds to the fairly complex paintwork for a minifigure that's over 25 years old.
I like this guy way more than I thought I would. When I've always seen him on cardbacks or online pictures, I thought he seemed kind of boring. In person, though, he's pretty cool. A nice simple pose, impressive sculpt, and a really eye catching paintjob make Sewerot a Great minifigure. I now only need 6 of these guys to complete my set, which is one of my goals for 2017! Wish me luck!

Minifigure Review: Sewerot from Trash Bag Bunch by Galoob
Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom)
As a child I was lucky enough to actually score two Trash Bag Bunch figures in a single bag, Sewerot here and Wastor, which really made my Easter (there was a slim chance of getting two figures in any given bag advertised on the blister card packaging if I remember right). My younger brother and I used to have a small collection of these figures, but I think I only have one or two left as an adult. I agree that the Trash Bag Bunch was a mighty cool line with a neat gimmick.ReplyDelete
Did you know there was a second series (a mix of new figures and recolored old ones) that was released in limited quantities? [And they'll cost you a small fortune to acquire if you want them, lol]:
Oh my gosh! I get to say something I've always wanted to say. Ready?Delete
"What a story, Mark!"
Anyways, that is actually really cool. I remember seeing that promo, too, and always hoped I'd be luck enough to pull. I do know there is a second series, although the prices are insane on those! I'm pretending they don't exist for my sanity. ;)
