Out of the many Peanuts collectibles out there, this one's pretty cool.
It actually comes in 3 pieces: Snoopy+house, Smoke, and Clouds+Biplane; which all locks together nicely to keep it's shape. Loads of detail here :)

The sculpting and paint job are a little reminiscent of porcelain, but I can't help but wonder...are those knots or bullet holes in Snoop's ride?

Here's where selected 6" or less figures are on display.

An overview of the line-up. As you can see, all kinds of toys are welcome.
Even if they happen to be modernist furniture....










This is character is a really good concept.
One thing that irritates me about many vinyl figures though; is when the paint or material isn't as opaque as their original illustrations. This could be due to overspray, thin material walls, or thin paint. Maybe i'm a little picky?
Such is the case here, where the monk's orange garb just isn't as solid as it should be....

Aside from that; the necklace and articulated hands+head are a nice touch.
