Reliving painful gaming memories we've repressed is the norm for this gig. Upon seeing Splatterhouse's Rick in glorious custom toy form over at Tomopop, I was reminded how I never did beat Splatterhouse 2, and was forced to shamefully watch the final level's conclusion on YouTube.
For the record, Rick's sprite was freaking huge. In fact, from this day forward, I'm blaming all of my mishaps on his freakishly large sprite. That goes for non-Splatterhouse games too.
The creator, Jin Saotome, has a great picture gallery dedicated to the figure's intricate paint details. Jim was telling me how much he hates it when he sees a particularly sweet toy only to find out it's a custom. I'm right there with him -- we want these things in stores so we can throw money at their designers.
