Anyways the kids wanted to watch it the otherday and it got me thinking. :) :) Well my gremlins had not arrived yet so thought why not I will make all the little robots from the movie hehe. :-D

    Oops. I think i posted this in the wrong forum area... Anyways, I know this is an old thread, but just wanted tho show off a new sculpture I've been working on.
    It's not necessarily "studio accurate" more like "inspired by" but it is about the same size as the movie prop.
    Basically it's an artists rendition of Wheems. I'm offering them made to order.
    Any feedback would be appreciated.
