Arms! (Not Yeti Friday: MAAMs)

Today, the film John Carter comes out. It features the first ever movie version of the Great White Apes of Barsoom. I blogged all about them on a Not Yeti Friday before.

The Great White Ape is an example of a MAAM, a Multi-Armed Ape Monster.

There are actually a lot of MAAMs in the world.

I've blogged about a few:

  • Bullymong
  • Girallon
  • Slam Bam
  • And the original idea for Grimace:

    There's also Goro from Mortal Kombat:

    And groble piledriver, whoever that is:

    And DC Comics' Four-armed Monster (yes, that's his official name):

    But the first, the best, is the Great White Ape of Barsoom...
