Kaufman's reaction? Instead of suing the company, he instead decided to partner with an FX shop by the name of Composite Effects and create the be-all end-all Toxie mask, officially licensed and guaranteed to make everyone forget about any other Toxie masks even existing. As you'll soon see, I think their mission was more than accomplished.
Check out the Composite Effects officially licensed Toxic Avenger mask, just released this past week!
Now the only downside to this bad boy is that the price tag is about as high as the budget was for the film. At a whoppping $649.95, i'd imagine Uncle Lloyd himself probably couldn't even afford it. So while the beauty of this thing does make it the ultimate Toxie mask on the market, i'd personally probably find myself eBay'ing the bootleg pulsating mask if I decided to be Citizen Toxie for Halloween on any given year other than a year where I won millions in the lotto. Nevertheless, it's a pretty awesome display piece for anyone who can afford it.
