    The artwork of Randy Regier channels the dime store toy aisles and the flashy comic book advertisements of the 1950s and 1960s. His toys promise rip-roaring thrills on their colorful packages...and deliver confusion, horror, and crushing disappointment once de-boxed. Let's take a look at some of Randy's unabashedly rip-off playthings like... Tardy the Man Pony. I find Tardy to be really disturbing, although much worse exists out there. Something about Tardy just seems sinister and unwholesome.
