This mug was based on Big Toe's (Tom Laura's) painting, The Other. It is a re-imagining or "What If?" that considers the end of Mary Shelly's classic story of Frankenstein's Monster and what might have happened if instead of going to the North Pole at the end he had hopped a ship to the South Seas instead and found more inclusion among native islanders.

The mug is a depiction of the Monster similar to Universal's classic flat head version with bolts in the neck, but he is dressed in Victorian finery with a bow tie and suit, and his face is covered in Maori moko tattoos. Glazed in green. Manufactured by Tiki Farm and although Tom carried around a sample to many shows in advance of its release, the actual mug went on sale at the Tiki Farm booth at Tiki Oasis on Saturday, July, 31st.
