Guardian - $500.

Created for Dragatomi's "Big Trouble in Little China" tribute show I went all out on this piece.
Built from a Mega Munny head and over 5 lbs of Magic Sculpt,
this 1/1 scale recreation captures the film's gruesome creature in full life size!
Although only seen for a few seconds of screen time,
The Guardian is one of Big Trouble's most memorable characters,
a floating blob of eyeballs that serves as bad guy Lo Pan's mobile security system.
As character "Egg Shen" says in the film "The Guardian, what it sees Lo Pan knows"
Working with the Munny's natural head shape,
I used the inward slope of the nose for the Guardian's huge eyeball
and the Munny's ear's as negative space for the beast's tentacle eyeballs to seemingly float in mid air.
For added play value i have attached my creation to a lazy Susan base,
allowing it to be spun in any direction for a better view of the monster from all angles!
