Manos: The Hands of Fate....Figurines?

Perhaps some of you are familiar with the TV show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (MST3K), which lampooned horrible science-fiction B movies with their quick wit, drawing from literature, music, pop culture, and other more obscure references for their comments (also called MSTing).

As I was poking around on eBay to see if any MST3K seasons were on DVD, I came across some figurines from their #1 most hated movie that they made fun of, called "Manos: The Hands of Fate." One of the characters, Torgo, has become a cult favorite from the movie.

They also included one of the Master as well, complete with his arms outstretched to show the red hands on his gown (hence, Manos). This was one of the worst movies ever made that they MSTed, but it was also one of the funniest. If you haven't seen it, you can view it in installments, starting with 1 of 10, here.

I'll just stand there screaming as he tries to fondle my hair rather than running with a clear route of escape and time to spare...
