    The crossover event no one expected (or wanted): Botbots x Office Space!

    Miltron the Red Swingline Stapler is another quick BotBots custom and for the most part, is just a straight repaint (far less cutting-up than my previous Frogtrap BotBots mod) of the Stinkeye Stapleton mold. Only a few additional pieces of Styrene were added for the glasses and some modifications to the chest to flatten things out and give him a smart, little recessed-implied tie.

    I actually didn't remember to snap many shots of the base mold so relying on some pulled from a gallery elsewhere for comparison (watermark for attribution purposes).

    Further shots just to showcase a couple more angles,

    At this scale my calligraphy skills failed me a bit. Had originally tried to transfer a genuine logo off a pen and onto Miltron but efforts failed, unfortunately so fell back on painting it on to the best of my ability.

    All n' all fairly happy with how this turned out and plenty of paint learnings (for good and ill) I can apply to future projects!

    I love his creepy expression and the paint job looks shiny and candy-like.

    You need to get a little speaker/mp3 player w/sd card reader, built into a custom stand, playing samples...

    It's not a show, it's a film by Mike Judge, based upon a short animation he made prior to Beavis and Butthead:

    I really recommend watching it.

    Haha that'd be amazing!

    If i did that i'd be tempted to do a 2nd stand that just plays "Still" on loop and figure out how to make one of the Techie Team look like a busted-up printer, track down the one that turns into a bat and then turn the new shoe one from wave 2 into a loafer lol

    Thanks! Took it apart, taped things off and painted the parts i wanted red just using spray paint. Everything else is done by brush with Vallejo paints save the lines around the eyes/stache, which were done with a Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.

    And agreed! It's well worth the watch (or rewatch if it's been awhile) surprisingly still pretty relevant.

    I feel I've seen a few on Twitter at the very least before and done a few mods already too but appreciate it all the same!

    You're mistaken - when I first saw photos of Stinkeye, I said (on these very boards!) that painting him blue was a missed opportunity on Hasbro's part. I think I included a Milton GIF. And I did expect a clever Radicon to step up - and here you are!

    That said, you keep failing to put the correct cover sheets on your TPS reports. Didn't you get the memo?
