Double Trouble by Iconoclast Toys

Back of Header Card


These resin figure were created by Iconoclast Toys. The figures appear to be inspired by In-N-Out Burger.

The “single patty” figure is built on the #17 figure. The “double patty” figure is built on the #182 figure.

The burgers appear to be 100% original creations. The bodies of the figures have not been altered in any way. The burgers have replaced the original heads.

These figures were purchased for $12, but is currently Sold Out. The figures take their coloration inspiration from the original keshi/M.U.S.C.L.E. color.

The ‘Double’ (Back)

The ‘Double’

When I purchased these figures I immediately thought of the figures from Edge of Doom. I had some initial concerns about the “head swap” factor. Was I going to like these figures more or less when they arrived?

I often talk about header cards. I think they can add a great deal to the initial enjoyment of a figure. This card did not add anything positive, nor did it detract from the figures.

I feel that proportion is critical to the success of a head swap figure. For these two figures it felt slightly off. The burger for the “single” feels just a little bit too small. And the burger for the “double” feels just a little bit too big. But this is a very minor complaint.

The ‘Single’

The ‘Single’ (Back)

The sculpt of the “double” is the better of the two burger sculpts. The height of the burger makes it feel a little more like a promotional image of a Big Mac, but the header card does ground it as a Double-Double.

The “single” patty is another great reminder to reserve judgment until holding a figure. From the pictures I saw online I thought the single burger head looked pretty good. Once I held the figure, I thought the figure looked like a vagina. I wish I did not think that, but once I saw it – it was impossible to un-see.

Do you see a vagina?

Like its Power Claw cousin, the coloration is not a perfect original keshi/M.U.S.C.L.E. color, but it is close enough to see the connection. Targeting the original keshi/M.U.S.C.L.E. color has become both a blessing and curse. Collectors seem to like it and customizers can get very close to it; but unless it is a perfect match it could be viewed as a “miss.”

Finally, the price. This set of figures was sold as a pair for $12. The Power Claw sold for $5. Were each of these worth a dollar more than the Power Claw? Probably not. Perhaps it required more resin. Even at one dollar more than the Power Claw it is difficult to complain about a $6 minifigure. Again, my preference is a rubber figure to a resin figure, but does it matter once it is on the shelf?
