Crabmen, Dire Corbies, and the like.

A recent Planet Algol post made me think of a long-lost-to-my-subconscious old Fiend Folio monster, the Dire Corby. Issue 3 of Fight On! magazine made me think back to the Fiend Folio's Crab Men. Makes me think about the great potential for totally gonzo weirdness in my monsters in the old Fiend Folio, if only I let the weirdness of the monsters become their strength rather than their weakness.

Perhaps that way lies madness, but I think there may be genius in reclaiming monsters like the Flail Snail....
