    Jun 24, 2008, 5:30 PM - He got a BOB-OMB!!! #1

    I love Super Mario Bros but the movie was a little . However they made the little Bob-omb appear just as it looks in the game.
    I have tried to find a wind up toy that i could mod to a screen accurate version but had no luck.

    Here it is : Bob-omb



    The movie version

    He is made from a round toy container and some styrene pieces and bondo, and a little metal wire for the fuse.
    Later i might add the Reebok text and English flagg that he has under his shoes.

    Edit:Changed the name to the correct one.

    Nice job.
    If i'm not mistaken, I think we used a wind "fry guy" from an old McDonalds Happy Meal as the base.

    He is made from a round toy container that you can get from those machines in some stores. I cut a opening in the bottom with my Dremel and then cut a round piece of styrene to sit inside it as a "floor" I glued it to the bottom.
    I glued the spheres together with superglue and used bondo to fill the seams,
    sanded and bondo again until it was smooth.
    The wind-up key was made from a styrene pipe and styrene sheet, cut an glue.
    The shoes/legs were made from bondo and styrene. First cut the sole of the shoe from styrene, then glue the styrene pipe as legs onto it. Put some bondo on top and use the Dremel to shape it to feet.

    The Top round part was a pen cap that i filled with bondo and drilled a hole into for the fuse, which is a metal wire that i painted black.
    Eyes were made from styrene.

    Thats pretty much it.. ask if you wanna know some more.

    They offer these little guys at party stores too. I was playing with them. I think they came in boxes of 12 or something along those lines.

    I think they were called, "Da Bomb", or something to that effect. The only problem is that they came in all different colors: pink, orange, yellow, grean, blue, etc.

    Every reference I've EVER seen to this thing it was called a Bomb-omb.

    Very nice little prop there, I may make myself one as well.

    From the trophies in Super Smash Bros Melee:



    From the end of Super Mario Bros 2, which is Bob-Omb's debut:
