Now we are getting matchstick men being seen, so what is happening with this new phenomena? Where do they come from and why should we be getting this new type of cryptid now?

Apparently more and more people are seeing stickmen in all kinds of situations from hospitals to local neighbourhoods.

Here is an article on them and also a photo too. Of course, we don't know whether these photos are real or photoshopped but there are supposedly many people who see them in different locations.

Anyone on here seen them?

I thought you were talking about the 2003 movie Matchstick Men, with Nicholas Cage and Sam Rockwell about con artists, which I really liked when it came out!

It made me think of this moldy oldie from my hippie days:

Reminds me of the Yosemite Nightwalkers caught on camera years ago. Its an interesting phenomena and gives us a break from another "look its Bigfoot" report.

Extra dimensional entities maybe?

It's also reminiscent of Slenderman. On the Yosemite Nightwalkers/crawlers:

Thought I was the only one that saw them, One was in my bedroom when I woke up in the middle of the night, a silhouette with long wavy hair, like a shadow on a wall. Sometimes see them out of the corner of my eye for a split second in public from
time to time.

It looks a little like those inflatable tube-men that are
displayed at different locations and flop around.

I remember seeing similar "creatures" on a now-defunct program with a name something like "Fact or Faked: Fact or Fake". It was mildly interesting, but made much more watchable by Jael de Pardo.
