    Rare 1984 Mr. Natural Resin Statue, MINT in Box.

    This 4.5" tall heavy resin Mr. Natural statue was authorized by Robert Crumb in 1984. It was the very first statue of any Crumb cartoon characters. Rare enough in itself, this statue is still in the original box along with the mini comic book titled "The Origins of Mr. Natural," which was produced solely to accompany this statue. The statue and comic book are mint; the white cardboard box with "Mr. Natural" on the side shows very slight wear. This is as well-preserved a set as you will see.

    The bottom of the statue has four felt pads and the manufacturer's sticker. This item was actually advertised several times in Rolling Stone in 1984 at considerable expense to the small manufacturer. It was intended to be the first of a successful series of Crumb statues. However, sales from the ad were very disappointing (Crumb fans didn't read Rolling Stone?) and the company, Rock City, went of out business. Only a few hundred were ever made.

     

    NOTE: this is NOT the vinyl statue issued later by KSP.
