I like the relatively rustic look without the rough textured surface that would make it difficult to clean. It's very sturdy and is a decent size for a décor piece.
This was exactly what we were looking for! It is actually smaller than it appears, which is what we were needing. The color is pretty true to the picture, maybe just slightly lighter in person. My husband put it together, but he didn't seem to have any complaints.
This item was included in a fanboy bundled item subscription service, something that seems to be a fast growing online business model for various types of items. If this book were a NYT bestseller, you could find it in the bookstores. As things are, the one you can special order from whatever bookseller you choose to deal with (or maybe buy on the spot if you're lucky) is probably going to be out of print soon. Either that, or this "green variant" (paperbacks do often have different covers than their hardcover counterparts -- nothing real significant about the change in color here) edition will be re-issued at some point for mass consumption. I don't really read books that much, so it's entirely possible every bookseller in my vacinity has this book and multiple copies of it. I don't personally care for the animation. It's OK for most of the stuff. The drawing of The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man looks to be lifted from the re-imagined Stay Puft that NECA sculpted back in 2004 or thereabouts. That thing was fugly! Since when does a giant friendly too big for NYC marshmallow have a turtle snout? Nothing good can be said about that drawing. All of them are in black & white. I was hoping some of the Dan Schoeburg drawings that popped up on some of the GB fan websites would be included, such as his ode to the Kenner Toy Co.'s "Gooper Ghost" named Squisher. And naturally, despite the fact that the aforementioned not-by-name (coughcough) subscription service costs $35++ a month, this item is being sold for less than $10, both here and most elsewhere. It's not a bad item, but I think it's laughable to make this out to be more than it is. It's a softcover re-issue, which is what one would expect to see happen with a book that sells well. The fact that the cover differs from the hardcover is not of any real significance.
