Fresh Monkey Fiction have sent out a new update regarding the Larry Hama Action Figure on Kickstarter.

From the update:

Hey Everyone!

We did a few minor touch ups to the Larry Hama paint master and had him displayed at Joe Con last weekend along with our Eagle Force Returns figures. Thanks to Justin Bell at GeneralsJoes for the images.
