Viva la Revolución, Agent Calavera!

I loved Grim Fandango when it came out in 1998, and to this day still have my original copy of Tim Schafer & Co. at LucasArt’s love letter to noir. It’s simply one of the finest adventure games I’ve ever played (if you don’t know what all the fuss is about, check out this link) – and what do I see on Offworld this morning? Why Grim Fandango figurines of Manny and Glottis!! Woo-hoo! WANT! Really WANT!

Glottis and Manny figurines - Grim Fandango FTW!
Glottis and Manny figurines - Grim Fandango FTW!

They’re not mass produced, and just one-offs by talented media fella Iain Reekie (go to sculpture from the flash blob), but wow… 10 years too late and I’m still going Coo….

Awesome is timeless.

P.S. Grim Fandango quotes! “My scythe… I like to keep it next to where my heart used to be.” – Ahh, happy memories =D

P.P.S  To run Grim Fandango on modern hardware (multicore CPUs, high-end graphics etc), you will more than likely need to run it through a side-project of the ScummVM people called ResidualVM.
