No flashback for this Friday, as promised! Instead, you get the Mugato from the original Star Trek series–the version on the left is based on the creature’s original appearance, and the version on the right is based on the inexplicably innacurate vintage action figure produced by Mego:
I like to think of the clothed version as what the Mugato species would look like after evolving increased intelligence and developing culture and tools. Maybe in another couple of thousand years, the Mugato will evolve a better sense of fashion. Ha!
*Sound of nerd being mauled by highly-evolved Mugato*
