    hi guys!ive been trying to activate my account for almost a year or so now and i think i finally got it!!!anyhoo,this is a custom of the animated barnicle beast from the show.the base figure was some kind of fisher price caveman,the shovel is off of a loonie store backhoe and the pick axe is made from styrene.his big eye is from a keychain sphere thing my wife had that used to contain lip balm.the smaller eyes are from a loonie store "pool"set,i just cut the balls in half.the wholle body is covered in hot glue,then painted with krylon black and drybrushed with tamiya light grey.if you smash him down on a table or ground,his eye flashes red(courtesy of "tireflys")and he makes a ground shaking sound.i was also able to use bits from a junker movie dreadwing for some of the robotic bits randomly placed on him.

    wow, I don't want to even imagine how time you spent trying to sculpt all that hot glue.
    But he/it looks like it jumped right out of the t.v. :drool: 
    And I like the light up eye, and the way you have to activate it.."smash him on the ground"
    Great Job!

    But the custom looks really good.

    Welcome to the TFW, and definitely a very cool figure. I cant believe how many additional things you put into him. Well done.

    I've already said that I'm really glad to see you over here [finally], but I'll take that opportunity again! You do really great work and this is a fine example of it!

    I'm a bit behind on the whole Animated phenomenon, as I just watched this episode last night. I'm not keen on the non-Transformerish stuff that is in Animated so much (and hey Geewuners, G1 had it too, just not as much focus on it), but I had to admit that I thought it would be cool to have toys of each of the non-TF characters and such.

    Great work! Now you just need to make a Prowl and Bumblebee from this episode!

    It kinda looks like it could be a relative to Hedorah, the Smog Monster. But its cool.
