That's made out of resin? Very Impressive.
Tell me more...
Lots of parts and lots of magnets. This thing has a crazy amount of articulation for a resin toy as well as interchangeable limbs and accessories.
Were we looking at this thing last night?! I didn't pick it up and had no idea it was resin!!!
thanks to Dustin and Uberboy for the knowledge and help..!
Oh wow! YOu made that? That is awesome!! Planning on making more?
That was sitting on the table all through tradefest and I never picked it up, more because it looked like something I shouldn't touch than a lack of interest. I should've just asked. D'oh!
he is cool and doesn't seem like resin in hand, which i mainly attribute to the weight and effect added by the magnets. the way the limbs are attached with magnets make the whole thing "seem" more metal. when you pull a limb off, you feel that magnet force. when you combine that with the look being all metal, the brain is easily fooled.
Um, wow Kirkland.
WOW! These are really impressive. Hard to imagine why I'm just seeing these now...
Damn fine looking resin!
Does the jaw move too?
Is this your first resin Kirkland? If so, WOW. If not- still WOW!
Kirkle did a fucking rad ass job for his first time on this.
There's definitely room for improvement, but it's a start.
We spent the afternoon putting proto #2 together.
Definitely a lesson learned using two-part epoxy for the magnets.
It's crude, but fun to play with. I already somehow broke a magnet joint.
No idea why but it won't keep the arms up anymore at the shoulder.
Next thing is to figure out how to insert those knife nipples.
Thanks again to Kirkle for this proto.
Jaws unfortunately don't move.
I believe it was casted close because it was easier.
A little paint goes a long way.
I am unoriginal and just went w/ the original colors, but COME ON!
This thing is just fucking fun to play with.
TBS on the other hand has some crazy colors cooking.
these look incredible!

These look great, Kirkland. Nice work.
i love the blue body one with flesh head and axe. amazing
I find this to be the most annoying and condescending thing that can be said in a resin thread.
These look great.
Grandpa needs his Kong.
Will not survive without Kong.
Help keep an old man alive.
Kong is good medicine.
