Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES figures!

I was up in Toronto last month for the recording of four of the six CROGAN ADVENTURES episodes (based on my graphic novel series) that Decoder Ring Theatre is putting together for their 2013 Summer Showcase, and while I was there Gregg (the show's director, producer, and, in all cases save the Summer Showcases, writer) mentioned how he'd like to collaborate on making some paper figures for the Red Panda Adventures (possibly my favorite franchise, and certainly the one in which I'm the most emotionally invested - think the Shadow as if it were seamlessly integrated into a Tracy/Hepburn zinger romance) done the same way as my Sherlock Holmes figure series.  I thought it was a great idea.

He sent me a list of the characters he wanted to see, along with short descriptions of each (descriptions that were both concise and funny; even with Gregg has an audience of one, he never fails to deliver).  Based on those, my own thoughts on the characters, and my limited knowledge of the voice actors' physical appearances (with the exception of Harry Kelly and Dr. Chronopolis, who I doubt look anything like their real-world counterparts), I worked up this batch.  Hope you like 'em!

The Red Panda, played by Gregg Taylor, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES The Flying Squirrel, played by Clarissa Der Nederlanden Taylor, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES The Mad Monkey, played by Christopher Mott, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES Harry "Eagle Eyes" Kelly, played by Shannon Arnold, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES Constable Andy Parker, played by Brian Vaughan, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES Dr. Theo Chronopolis, played by Peter Nichol, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES Professor Zombie, played by Andrea Lyons, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES Maxwell Falconi, The Stranger, played by Peter Higginson, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES The Electric Eel, played by Scottie Moyle, from Decoder Ring Theatre's RED PANDA ADVENTURES I believe Gregg plans to make these available in the not-too-distant future.  Check the news page of Decoder Ring Theatre to keep up with any such developments, and be sure to give it a listen!  And don't forget to tune in next summer for THE CROGAN ADVENTURES Summer Showcase!

Cool beans, Chris! BTW I changed some of the formatting around this past season, and the "Summer Showcase" isn't really for summer any more. Crogan Adventures will start on the 15th of March, 2013, and run on the 15th of each month for six months.

These are incredible. And, being the fortunate voice actor who portrays Constable Parker, I can tell you that some bear an uncanny resemblance to the actors behind the voices.
Thanks for your work!
