    This...this is brilliant. I'd been wondering how it would be possible to work the tentacles in, but a septic tank...not only that, but he can provide transport for Oil Slick's noxious mixtures without arousing suspicion.

    Thanks guys! :D 

    >Can you file down the ends of the pneumatic tubes to make them pointy?

    Nope. They're made of rubber with jeweler's wire in the middle for poseability. If I tried to cut or file them it wouldn't end well.


    >I dig everything except the Tanker Logo

    Yeah, that's just one thing I'm not happy with on the tank. But with mass effect 3 coming out I knew I'd never get it done if I tried to strip and refinish the thing.


    >he can provide transport for Oil Slick's noxious mixtures without arousing suspicion.

    Ha! I didn't even think of that. Go Team Gooey Substance!

    Given that he's a septic tank, you'd want to make little nozzles for the ends instead of making them sharp. As it is, a styrene tube cut short and glued to the end out make a great cuff for attaching nozzles. Think Fire Hose rather than Doomtongue.

    After seeing this up close, it's even better in person. Just another fantastic piece of work, and another tear in my beer over not having enough Animated figures.

    Very creative! Good choice of mold considering that there was no actual earth mode for it! Great work!

    likewise :D 


    ta! What made me think of using SP is his big fat arms and tiny legs. All you have to do is mod his tummy so he can hunch forward and he suddenly looks very spittor-esque :D  Everything else was kinda window dressing.


    It's certainly purpler in person. Photos barely look like I've painted it at all :/


    that's not a bad idea. Might do that when/if I rework the tank.


    thanks guys, really! Appreesh :D

    This could and should be official. The tongues, the tank weapon, the frog face they all come together perfectly.

    Absolutely awesome,
    One of my favorite customs off all time - mainly because it invokes the spirit of animated and blends in so nicely,
    Its customs like this that make me think their is still life in the animated series and if I had not sold my entire collection, then I would be begging you to make one for me as this would of taken pride of place with grandus in my animated collection,

    Can I ask are you any good at making stickers?
    I might have a request for ya,
