The lights are on
Myplasticheart sculptor Matt Siren says that "Ghost Girl was born out of two loves, the female form (specifically
the face), and the Ms. Pac-Man video game (specifically the ghosts)." If you're interested in purchasing these hideous amalgamations, you can do so here starting on September 22. Otherwise, you can take another minute out of your day to hear me rant.
Dear Mr. Matt Siren, some things should never be mixed together. We've never seen a mash-up of a puma and a hippopotamus for a reason. Same goes for chocolate and Doritos. Matt is tinkering with subject matter beyond mortal comprehension. Truth be told, this is how black holes are created. Some hot shot artist thinks "I wonder what a human Pac-Man ghost would look like," and then BAM! Earth gone! Humanity gone! No more games.

What!??! Reiner, these are awesome!! Designer toy appreciation fail! ;P
I'll take all four.
those are pretty dang cool. i'm not much of a toy collector, but if i was these'd be on my list
These are scary. With the knowledge that these are ghosts, and that they chase you and ultimately kill you, albeit in a video game, these faces are sort of creepy. Like the sirens in God of War II, they look like they'll morph into something distorted, with fangs, and try to eat you.
These are awesome...don't know if its worth the $45 though.
That's not that terrifying. Now, if this person were to make plastic "Link Effigy's" from Majora's Mask, THAT would be horrific.
Yea there REALLY scary.
They're not that scary. Really weird, yes, but not scary.
GI's resident shooter is afraid of ghosts? I'd say these are more cool than scary.
Personal taste for these sculptures aside, dissing an artist's vision of video game characters is the same as thinking cos-play is ludicrous and fan art should not exist.
What is a cos-player's costume, than a VERSION of the real deal. Sometimes the costumes are far different than the original character's garb. Same goes for fan art.
Game Informer praises readers that send in envelope art and think outside the box....pieces that usually cross totally different game characters or styles humorously or otherwise.
Video games are creative expression. Praise the fans that contribute.
Dissing these "hideous amalgamations"
No me gusta.
Ahhhhhh! If there is a black hole then I'll never get to play fallout new Vegas!
lol "then BAM! Earth gone! Humanity gone! No more games."
No thank you. Those ghosts are supposed to be scary and dudes!
I think they're really cute, actually.
They look cool enough, but being a dude, I don't know if I would have them set up in my room, lol.
they look pretty well made... I want some of that....
Why does she have a beard?
way to promote the preppy stereotype as being creepy
But chocolate and Doritos tastes AMAZING!!
