Stomp.  Stomp.  Stompity-stomp stomp.

And I don't think a bacterium will take them down. Check out why!

This is a "V" thing, isn't it? They're trying to suck up all our water.

Cute! The eyes make me think of Clank from the Ratchet and Clank games.

Scary! Run. Run and play and have fun creating your own world and mechanical monsters to destroy it. Good, simple tutorial. Thanks.

"The eyes make me think of " GIR!

Neither work, and yet, there we are! ;->=

Another thing, I keep thinking I hear a small voice crying, 'Help, I'm trapped in a trash bin and have to create my way out!'

I suddenly want some yogurt and a soda…

Thanks, all.

I have some older ones that are even more GIR like.

It's not stupid … It's advanced!

That will certainly give the computer that tracks your grocery purchases an apoplectic fit. Rock on!

First, I love the, "what are we looking at" photo above, you have to click the link!

Second. The bases look far to plain and CD like. Perhaps an up turned car or two, some fleeing people and rubble may help?

Lastly, they look very cartoony, which is perhaps what your going for, the legs especially. Nice, however I feel you need to model the Beastie Boys or something? Extra detail on the bodies could make them better. I rambled on about such things in a board about bottle space ships in 28mm sci fi. I see you used some juice lids on the tops, the ones with ribbed sides and smooth tops. I found if you paint the ribs and tops differently, it instantly looks like you used two different parts stuck together and less like a lid. Gluing an unturned small screw in the center top could also help. I'll stop there.

They look good!

I was happy with that one. I still think this is my best one.

I just regret purging my scratched cd collection

Note the early 90's Windows 3.0 chess game CD-ROM. "No, honey, don't throw that out. I can use that for something…"

Somewhere, there's a hoarder of old AOL CD's chuckling away…

Me, I have a small pile of acrylic cases waiting inspiration.
