    I got the Pudgy mix last year. I have mixed feelings about it. They were generally good, but I wouldn't rank them as being extremely superior to other brands I like. I am tempted to do the sknnies because I prefer small gauges in general.

    Thats what I was wondering.  If I should spend the cash on a box of these or my favs Fausto.

    The issue with ordering the skinny monsters over a box of your favorites is you are most likely not going to like each one. I'm not saying I don't have a box of them myself, but if it's a choice your better off going with your favorite.

    I like the skinnies over the pudgy but both are good for me.

    Mikie, you gotta share some names of the good ones. Please?

    Hey Roland, what do you mean on notes on the different ones? Bit more clarity and I am sure we can help answer some questions @Rolanddeschain

    @90+_Irishman
    the different "names" I would assume are different blends? Mummy, Drac, etc...

    newb alert:)

    Hey Roland,

    @Rolanddeschain

    So this is part of the Tatuaje Monster series releases. Started years back and each year a new "Monster" is made into a cigar and released. It started with Frank for Frankenstein, then Drac for Dracula, Face for Leatherface, Wolf for Wolfman, Mummy for The Mummy, Jason for Jason Voorhes (sp?), Jeckyl for Doctor Jeckyl (sp?), Hyde for Mr. Hyde, and this new one in October will be Freddy for Freddy Krueger. 

    So in the Little and Pudgy Monster series it is all of those releases in one sampler but in either a skinny format for the Skinny Monsters, or the same ring gauge but a shorter smoke for the Pudgy Monsters. Each one is a unique blend and is supposed to be the same exact blend as the original full size releases.

    Hope that helps!

    Brett

    EDIT: If it is helpful I can post a pic of almost all the full size monsters, I am only missing The Frank, and Mr. Hyde from the list there though I will likely never find a Frank lol.

    I like both the Pudgy and Skinny Monsters.  I probably lean more towards the skinny just because of the vitola but I have enjoyed both of them.  Face, Mummy, Jeckyl, Frank are probably my favorite blends.

    At ipcpr last week, pete had the skinny monster boxes of 25. Each was painted the colour of the label, and they were very cool looking. There were 400 sets available in the first run. Retailers could only buy the all, not just a 25 count of their favourite skinny. I have a few pictures on my phone, but if u google it, I am sure you can easily find them.

    This is a decent video of Robb with pete, highlighting the tat stuff.

    Tatuaje monster coffin travel humidor was a promotional humidor that they sold a few years back. They sold out fast and I was able to get a couple of them.

    I haven't seen any for sale for quite a while now. 
    Every once in a while one pops up on ebay.
