It's been a while since I last posted, here's what I've been working on lately. The gorilla is almost 4 feet tall, weighs roughly 100 lbs and is made from old transmission parts, tubing, sheet steel, 1/4" rod and a very long plumber's snake. As always, all hints, tips, and criticism is gratefully received and appreciated.
Monstrous! I love that you built him balanced enough to stand without fear of falling over. Absolutely perfect!
Are they in a gallery somewhere or you keep them at home?
EDIT: I read the thread and looks like 2 years ago I suggested you make an ape. And you did exactly that! Wow.
There were also talks about your desire to have a movie made based on your Timmyverse by Tim Burton and I provided some contact information I found. did you end up trying it out?
Hope all is well!

Chucco, Black Spot, Chris Sanders, Aqualeot - Thank you very much
Lewston - I sell made to order versions, I keep the originals as templates and make copies to fill orders. Lag time is usually twelve weeks.
Zets - Good to hear from you, I checked out your personal site, cool work! Disturbing but cool.
Quike Garcia - Yes, all the joints lock in place, the pieces would be dangerous if they didn't
Pavel Sokov - Yes, I took your advice regarding the gorilla, good call! It's by far the most complex thing I've done, and at the moment, my favorite. I ended up getting an agent soon after you suggested contacting Tim Burton and I've left that part of the business to her. That said, no lit deals have been forthcoming so I may have to look into it myself.
