    My submission for the Steampunk contest over at Procustomizers. He was built up from a random wrestling figure, and a lot of fodder parts. I custom built a movable jaw, as well as 3 seperate attachments for his robotic arm: a power claw, flamethrower, and gatling gun. Was going for a creepy "zombie" look with him. Thanks for checking him out!

    man that looks awesome, though not particularly steam-punky to me. The paint is wonderful. Is that a 40k searchlight on his chest?

    Yep! That's from a Leman Russ!
    I envisioned him as having a steam boiler built into his chest (which is what the "searchlight" is supposed to be a window to) and the pipes coming out of his shoulder area were the steam vents.
    I guess he is more of a "Frankensteinny" Steampunk, but a lot of the elements are there.

    In the third pic, it looks like he's crying.

    That makes it so much creepier.

    I was just thinking about how "steam" Trapsie would look with the right paint job. This is way cool, and rather creepy.

    Thanks! I was trying to go for a realistic look with him, and was thinking of what a movie version may look like.
    I had actually started a Man-E-Faces for the contest. I may go back and finish him now, since Trap Jaw has been rather popular. I put TJ here up on e-bay to test the waters with the MOTU crowd. If he does well, there will likely be more, as this guy was a lot of fun to build!

    Thanks man! Glad you like him (and I liked those movies too!)

    Thanks guys! That was what I was trying for with him: "creepy."

    Thanks! The wrappings around his boots and wrist were a result of laziness. The deadline for the contest was getting close, and I hit a wall as far as what to do with his wrist and boots. Found some old fabric and just cut it into strips.

    Thanks again everyone!

    This guy looks awesome! Trapjaw was always one of my favorite he-man characters.

    He looks VERY realistic and twisted. I really like the work on the boots.

    Yup! He is there now.

    Wow! I hadn't even thought of it, but maybe I was subconsciously inspired by the old Judge Dredd stuff.

    Thanks again fellas!
