Mutants in the FLESH

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:
