loveforstitch - Does he fall in love? I like a little romance in all my movies.

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

He's Mega City 1's own Don Juan.

I bought this for my son early in the year and on closure inspection, i thought maybe it had a real look even if slightly of Mongrol.

It's possible, although I think it's the kind of look that people could come up with independently.

God came up with the design first when He created the gorilla. ;)

I wouldn't be surprised if the designer borrowed from Mongrol though, even if unconsciously.

Yeah, it looks similar doesn't it.

Would be a good candidate for a custom job - new paintwork and it could be a reasonable likeness!

It's a possibility. I think Derrick J. Wyatt does the character designs for Ben 10, and he did Transformers Animated where Prowl's design was influenced by Joe Pineapples or something (I know he said ABC Warriors was an influence).

Rebellion best file an IP infringement suit against Evolution.

Looks like a gorilla designed by Jack Kirby to Stevie.

Boloxx, more like. No reason or anything, just wanted to crack that clever, Wildean joke.
