Painted Critters

Fans of cult 80’s horror films should be very familiar with Critters. If not, you should go seek it out immediately. It’s a super cheesy blast and one of the best mini monster movies that came about after Gremlins. Tenacious Toys alerted me to Eric Nilla’s awesome looking Painted Resin Critters and Unpainted Rubber Critters! Pre-orders will only be open for 48 hours, starting later today.

Check out a couple of images after the jump.

Look for more details as they become available.
