Coming from a love of bootleg & knockoff toys, specifically M.U.S.C.L.E. or Kinkeshi, when I think of "flesh" the range is all over the place. Flesh in minifigures seems kind of a generic term for the pink color that toys like M.U.S.C.L.E. came in as a standard run. Most of these types of toys came in a base pink color, and some of the knockoff versions even had a tan color. Within both bootlegs of Kinkeshi and knockoff toys that followed there is a huge range sometimes even with the same company producing them.
When it came to thinking of how we were going to do a standard run of "flesh" for the Mutants to start off with, I started thinking of my big old pile of bootlegs. Seemed only natural with this mix of mixed up characters to give them some type of individuality within a set. It occurred to me to try to represent the different "flesh" I have seen in the 10 different Mutants as well as the Hunter.
Using the same 3 basic colors of Red, Yellow, and Brown that comprise typical "flesh" in varying degrees I ended up with a wide range from pale pink to fairly brown. Even a tan type color representing Future Strength is present.
If you made it through reading my ramblings, congratulations, enjoy some pictures:
We have received a new transmission in regards to the recent discovery within Imperfecz. Images from a new realm. To our eyes the inhabitants seem to be mutants, or malformed creatures. Cobbled together bits of humanity, fauna, technology.
We'll let the pictures tell the story for now. 10/19/13
Well, there's been a lot of research and exploration happening. Travelling through the pinhole entrance from our world and reality, a team of researchers have been transmitting information back.
Here is what we have so far.
Apparently the makeup of this... I don't really know a word for it. It's not really a place as it has no tangible fabric of its own. Think of a quilt. Made up of stitched together remnants of every galaxy, planet, dimension, reality, you name it. Everywhere has an entrance. But even this doesn't follow any laws of physics we know of. More like the points from Imperfecz push through every reality. This is where you enter.
On the other side is apparently a stitched together fabric of planes. You can seemingly get to anywhere from here. Each reality seems to be a different puzzle to get to. This is due to the shifts in factors between planets or even dimensions.
The latest word from this new frontier is, they have managed to achieve entering another place.
Unsure at this point if this is simply another planet...
... or a whole new reality.
The first image they tried to transmit didn't come through so well. The plan now is to send a few team members back as runners with images.
Once they reach the point of Earth's patch in Imperfecz (zone?) they should be able to transmit better images without coming all the way home.

This little guy was found at the dump. Apparently he has been assembled from various discarded objects. Not sure if the rust is due to age of the JunkBot or materials... Creepy little sucker got cornered & was thought to be under control for a possible capture. Hoping for further up close study. Still not sure where these are coming from.. sightings have been few and far between.
