this was never to be released. you think if they wanted the number in circulation out there they would have graciously posted it. H, might not be at liberty to say how many are out there but that there are some.

upon closer inspection even if the paint was bad it doesn't look like the drawing fits the right perspective on that platform. the head of the labbit didn't really lend it self well to the shape of the charachter

if you look at the way he drew the fox on the box its not even close to the same as how it got printed on the labbit. i think that might be another reason why it didn't come

i think someone also suggested how the fox? on the face doesnt even match the cigarrete..
however, apparantly the paint job was the main problem cause apparently some jled bandages were made in hope to help out covering the poor paint job, but jled still decided to pull them out.. probably will remain one of the greatest vinyl mysteries..

I wonder why they just couldn't get it to be consistant with the register? It just sounds strange that it kept being so off...It's a shame too and prolly cost them a bit but atleast they pulled them cause of bad quality.

Happy to see it happen..I mean lots of people would have complained if they were really bad :s

It's because the vinyl on the large Labbit was a bit too soft and pliable for the printing pad.
