Get in your suggestions!

Ok, I was thinking I should have an audience participatory element in this project, so if anyone wants to suggest any celebs, famous personages or any other things to be made into toys please post. Post as many and as wacky of ideas as you like. I am going to try and model the top 3 or so most popular suggestions.

For instance, my own tentative to do list at the moment contains:

Jesus
dancing Skull
Dita
race car driving bear
Terminator (the Arnie one)
John Wayne Gacy
Moby Dick, with the Ahab ride along.
Adolf Hitler
50 foot woman

like I told you Mary(lin)popins with Alice Cooper for sure will be the bad rock dudes and why not Malcolm X ... a strong contrast between personality and culture...

I think Prins Charles and Camilla could be a pleasant addition.

You have an idea for the scenery yet?

I should mention that you can vote for as many characters as you want and vote as often as you want, but only one vote per celebrity/idea. Lists are welcome. I will prolly take a tally around the end of this month, and start the modeling on the top pick at that time. Meanwhile I have lots to keep me busy.

Right now it is a 4 way tie for the lead, hahah. I will throw down some swing votes if the voting remains this sparse. I get one vote too. Right now I am praying that a gaggle of Donny Osmond fans do not flock in here... :-)

Modeling: Moby Dick tin toy



Moby Dick tin toy. Push down on his tail to make him rock back and forth and watch Ahab's head and limbs loll back and forth...

I guess Moby will need more detail to make the scale feel right?

Hi Soapy, looking unique and great as always my friend! I'm a little suss on the mouth corner of the whale but understand it might be a style choice...

Btw add my votes for
Kenny, Arnie, Michael Jackson (with bubbles in tow), TAFKAP, Krusty, Shrek, Osama and George Dubya, QE2, Thatcher, Di, Jolie, Thurman (in yellow catsuit from Killbill2), Janet...

Top of my list would be
Thurman (in yellow catsuit from Killbill2)

Good luck Jim, I always find your work refreshing and thoroughly original (bent!)

I wasn't quite sure whether to build an add on for the jaw or build it in. So I went build in, I the polys are folding funny there I will work on it. Or maybe I will build a seperate jaw. Plus I have to build the fin er flipper? and arms for Ahab.

I will probably recycle some of the meshes once I build them out. But some will probably get fresh starts depending on how unique they are. Plus I think there is going to be a mix of different kinds of toys so that will mean starting from scratch.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Some of those character suggestions are cracking me up.

Modeling: Vinyl critter



I took a rest from tin toys today and decided to model a vinyl creature toy. It is modeled in parts with bones in the wings.

Can anyone guess who it is?
