    Annual Gift Man comes to you from the moon to celebrate Christmas with the children of Japan!
    OK, maybe not. He does wish everyone at TFW a Happy Holidays and bountiful New Year!
    Annual Gift Man is scratch-built from styrene that I salvaged from the signs at my job. His head is a large pill bottle and his beard is fake fur. Those are Nerf whistler darts shoved into his arm launchers. Sadly, they do not really fire. His lights come from a large light-up letter H that I bought at Target. All I had to do was remove the bulbs that I didn't need, and I had all the lights that I needed ready to go.
    Sorry I didn't take too many WIP pictures. I was too into building him.
    He was mainly painted with Montanna Spray Paint and Tamiya acrylic model paint. I used a combination of the Tamiya and Games Workshop corrosion effect paints to give him his rust spots. I wanted him to look as much like a corroded, old metal toy as possible.
    I hope you enjoy!

    Yes, and by the way, the rockets on the arms are a good match. I had forgotten about those.
