Mighty Men & Monster Making

Last night at Drawing Club we made a bunch of these 'exquisite corpse' type characters, inspired by this awesome toy we all had a little kids.I cut a bunch of the iconic yellow, orange and red polygons out of colored cardstock, showed up, chowed down on some pizza, and then we all went to town. Sorry for the crummy snapshots. My digital camera is the same vintage at the Mighty Men & Monster Maker.
Anyway, until I build and upload a Flash Module allowing you to build your own, here are a few more randomly generated characters:

Those are super-fun! I forgot about the MM&MM too. when I was a kid I made a whole set of superhero paper dolls with the MM&MM. I remember in particular the Mr. Fantastic... I cut off his hand, taped on an accordion folded strip of paper, and taped that back to his wrist. Then he could "stretch" his fist to punch somebody out.

This is fantastic, what a great idea! I know what I'm doing while my boss is away.
