Hi,
This is one i have been looking forward to doing for quite some time. the turtle bustin exterminator, Scumbug.

In my own made up story for the character is that yes he did start out as a threat to the turtles until he happened upon the Malignoids and realized his new mission, to exterminate the Malignoids. Ever since he has been on an inter-dimensional bug hunt but this time the bug is doing the hunting.

The figure stands 6" tall when fully stretched (not including antenna) and has 27 points of articulation including at the mandibles and shell

as always comments/criticisms/thoughts welcome

He is one ugly bug, and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.

That's a solid, clean redesign of the character. Definitely more in line with modern figure design than the original toy. Great work!

Awesome work! What's the recipe (beneath all the spectacular sculpting)?

He uses a knock off superior spiderman base with a lot of sculting

:o Yeah, what you've done is infinitely better than what Playmates did. Why couldn't we get a toy line that looks like this?:(

T-U-R-T-L-E POWA!

Man that looks really awesome actually. It might just be the angle of the pic but the side profile of his mouth sorta makes him look less menacing than the straight ahead shot. Still man that is really, really, cool looking. Playmates should give you a call!

I thought the playmates on was "awrite" just could have done with a little more articulation but then again the original scumbug is one of my favorite toys of all time so it would never be a winner in my eyes ;)
