"Bufo Emilio / The Cyberhypnotoad" Custom Jumping Brain for TAG Sept 16th

"Bufo Emilio / The Cyberhypnotoad" Custom Jumping Brain for TAG Sept 16th

I was asked to produce a custom Jumping Brain by Emilio Garcia as part of the Toy Art Gallery Grand Opening at it's new location on September 16th. I am also producing a large number of resin bots for the opening and releasing 5 new sculpts. In total, there should be at least as many pieces as i sent to Metallic Machinations last year!

Along with the resin Jumping Brain, i've also incorporated an 8" Egg Qee and a sizable custom build to make up the raygun on the front. There are also two painted Bits n Bytes to keep it maintained, making the whole thing 1/24th scale instead of my normal 1/12th. Standing 9" tall and 9" deep, he's a big chap!

Backstory (Very long, i know... there's a TLDR)

"In a deep valley of a remote jungle, a team of Rumble and Rummages searched for an experimental pulse-fusion engine that had been lost there half a century earlier. Kept out of the region by tribal warfare, political wrangling and insurmountable terrain, the device lay at the heart of a failed deep space probe that had crashed back to earth minutes after launch. Sabotage had been suspected, but as the ship had never been recovered, there was no proof. Future missions had gone without a hitch, however the core of "Emilio's Leap" was known to be intensely radiogenic and the whole area declared an exclusion zone. Due to the impressively engineered ablative shielding and the short-range effect of Menzel Radiation, the effected area was highly localised within the valley, posing little risk to the rest of the world.

After a lengthy mission, the Rummages returned with the core, flight recorder and all other hazardous materials for decontamination and study. It's said that on any given mission, at least 1 or 2 Rummages will return with something unexpected and this mission was no different. Within the last robot to return, there was not technology, but an unknown member of the local fauna, a very large amphibian with an uneasy stare. Keen to study the long term mutagenic effects of Menzel Radiation on the local wildlife, the creature was retained and given the latin name Bufo Emilio. It would soon pick up another, more disturbing moniker...

The findings from the mission were taken to Omega Tellurion's primary research lab on the moon. Three months passed without a report of any real substance being submitted regarding the wreckage. The man charged with checking up on the team returned with a distant look and nothing more than calm reassurances that everything was fine. Remote access to any research files relating to the matter were either inaccessible or gibberish that seemed to involve a mixture of technical details about the pulse-fusion core and brainwave analysis of every member of the team. When it was noted that there was no one on the team called Emilio, it was postulated that this referred to a unique toad which had mistakenly been shipped alongside the salvaged parts.

The breaking point came when large amounts of resources were covertly diverted to the project and a colossal production hanger was seized and sealed. A group of disgruntled researchers that broke in to the lab to reclaim their equipment not only failed to take back what was theirs, but filed formal requests to transfer to the project and stayed. Unable to do anything about the situation and unwilling to lose anymore men or resources, the facility was evacuated and all remaining personnel reassigned to the OT labs elsewhere on the moon.


One misty autumn morning on the East coast of the North American continent, an unscheduled OT dropship de-phased it's cloak in the middle of the main commercial district. Opening it's warehouse-sized bay door, the machine stepped out into full view, 19 feet high and glistening in the early light. Turning towards the gathering crowd, fear started to set in as the giant brain pulsed and undulated atop the robotic walker, training it's imposing canon upon them. As the crowd turned to run, the monstrous creation fired upon the mass, casting rings of glowing blue energy down upon them... the people slowed... and stopped. Everything was quiet. Then turning to each other, smiles and laugher broke out. Some began to hug one another or play, others just lay on the ground and looked at the clouds above as the intruder moved away.


Affected by decades of radiation, an unlikely series of mutations had enhanced the Hypnotoad's latent psionic abilities. No longer needing to fear any predator, it's population exploded, as a simple look could not only calm the savage beast, but the neural feedback was enough to sustain the amphibian without harming it's subject. It was pure chance that a Rummage chose to bring one back to civilization, but as the first human was caught within it's stare, he was captivated. While not directly controlling them telepathically, the Hypnotoad evoked within the scientists that studied it a feeling of deep well-being, and a need to not only understand it, but share

i wanted to cry with happiness, they played with these toys for two days straight, at least eight hours a day. probably 12. and they're still going. now that the lego castle has been built and modified, they've moved on to a whole complex system of castles, ships, barracks and "tikis" (??), loosely based on runescape and my tribe and some other bits created wholly from everett's brain.

The Marvel Super Heroes: Iron Man Cartoon - Main Title Theme Lyrics (1966)

"Tony Stark
Makes you feel
He's a cool exec
With a heart of steel.
As Iron Man,
All jets ablaze,
He fights and smites
With repulsor rays!
A blaze of power!
Iron Man!
Amazing armor!
Iron Man!"

When billionare inventor Tony Stark designed his Iron Man variant suit of Inferno armour it was intended to shield him from the fearsome heat of an active volcano. At first glance that might not seem to be a very useful capability.


You'd be amazed at just how many super villians thought that they were the VERY FIRST to think of constructing their lairs within volcanoes. Strangely enough, hardly any of them thought to tap the immense geothermal power of their hellish neighbourhoods, instead choosing to rely upon that old standby of evilness... nuclear reactors.

On the other hand, Iron Man HAD seen some pretty spectacular lava lamp lit decor!

Still, the highly specialised Inferno armour had other uses...

In response to a call from Stark International's Melbourne Division he'd flown over to Australia just in time to run headlong into the dreadful 2008 bushfire season. The Inferno suit, of course, shrugged off the highest maximum temperature in Melbourne's recorded history, 47.9 degrees Celsius or around 118 degrees Farenheit.

But Aussie cities baked. Hot winds gusted. Vegetation dried. And the Victorian countryside went up in flames on February 7th.

Tony had experienced similar conditions in both California and Canada and as Iron Man had even helped with search and rescue in both those fire prone places. He'd sometimes literally lent a hand, using his palm mounted repulsors to blast fire breaks ahead of fire fronts. As Victoria began to burn Tony personally committed S.I's in-country manpower and resources to help pitch in with the fire fighting effort. Stark's aviation assets proved especially useful.

Iron Man not excluded.

The Australians named similar disasters after the days they'd fallen on. Black Friday. Ash Wednesday. Today was a Saturday. He wondered what they'd call this one?

During a rare break he'd mentioned it to one of the bravely laconic local fireman who wearily took one look at Stark's soot covered armour and laconically quipped, "Strewth mate, Iron in the Fire day!"

The red and gold Avenger smiled grimly at the memory as he strapped on a fire supression blaster pack and prepared to head out again...even for a bonafide super hero it was a long day, and a longer night....and damned little enough else to find humour in.

Still, as the Aussie 'fireys' were fond of saying, "No worries mate".

And THEY weren't even wearing air conditioned invincible armour.

"Hmm," Stark mused as he lifted off, "I might just do something about that...."


I paused to set up this shot while I was busy keeping our garden alive with recycled water on Searing Saturday, pondering the wide variation in conditions across our sunburnt country. Bushfires across Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia while floods surged across North Queensland. Immense property damage and the death toll, both human and animal, is yet to be fully known.

I was comfortable enough as I worked, hot but well shaded by a sombrero or a water soaked pith helmet depending on how windy it was (costumers tend to have these things handy!) and with ready access to air conditioning and cooling drinks.

Spared more than one thought for the poor sods caught in the fire and the gallant fire fighters battling the blazes.

Hell already has its heroes.

Still, we can use all the help we can get, so Avengers Assemble, and Thunderbirds Are Go!

If only...

The Inferno armour is one of Hasbro's new Iron Man Concept armour variant action figures. It's a beaut, what with its semi-transparent magma red finish, thermal control fins and backpack. I especially like that the pauldrons (shoulder guards) are firmly held in place with metal pins...solving an infamous problem that has dogged most of the six-inch Iron Man figures spun off from the I.M movie. Which have an annoying tendancy to pop their pauldrons off when their arms are raised.

(By the way, the tune of the theme song from the 1966 Iron Man cartoon can be heard a couple of times in the 2007 movie...have fun listening for it!)

No daisies (see background!) were harmed during the making of this photo but, strewth, it was so hot outside that the action figure started to wilt in sympathy!

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons - Captain Black and the Spectrum

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons - Captain Black and the Spectrum

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967), often referred to as Captain Scarlet, is a British science-fiction television series produced by the Century 21 Productions company of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, John Read and Reg Hill. First broadcast on ATV Midlands between September 1967 and May 1968, it has since been transmitted in more than 40 other countries, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and the Netherlands. Combined with scale model special effects, characters are presented as marionette puppets in a filming technique that the Andersons dubbed "Supermarionation", a technology that incorporated internal solenoid motors as a means of producing mouth movements synchronised with pre-recorded dialogue.

Set in 2068, the series charts the hostilities between Earth and a race of Martians known as the Mysterons. After a misunderstanding results in human astronauts obliterating their base, the vengeful Mysterons declare war on Earth, initiating a succession of reprisal attacks that are countered by Spectrum, an international security organisation. Spectrum boasts the remarkable abilities of its top agent, Captain Scarlet, who comes to possess the Mysteron healing power of 'retro-metabolism'. This ability to return to life, even after suffering fatal injuries, essentially makes Scarlet 'indestructible'.

Captain Scarlet, the eighth of ten puppet series that the Andersons produced in the 1950's and 60's, follows Thunderbirds and precedes Joe 90 and the little-seen The Secret Service. In terms of visual aesthetic, the series represents a departure from the style of Thunderbirds due to its use of non-caricatured marionette puppets of realistic bodily proportions. Re-run a number of times on British television and purchased by the BBC in 1993, the 32-episode series has been the foundation of merchandising campaigns since its first appearance, leading to the release of items such as toy dolls and other associated media, including novels, comic strips in the Anderson-related children's magazine, TV Century 21, and postcards.

Captain Black is the fictional nemesis of Captain Scarlet and recurring Mysteron agent in Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. Actor Francis Matthews gave the captain his voice. 'Captain Black' is a code name; his real name is never revealed in the series, although subsequent publications have given this as Conrad Turner. His transformation from human to Mysteron agent occurs on Mars in the first episode of the series; The Mysterons. Captain Scarlet is indestructible. You are not! Remember this. Do not try to imitate him!
