A great $2.99 find!
« on: March 23, 2013, 09:28:14 PM »
Found this when we went to the see the Sea Monsters Revealed Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. The Gift Store had Cthulu goodies like tins of mints with his name on it, some inflatable stuff and then I found this!



My job is just a few minutes drive so I may have to swing by on my lunch break to get a few more once I figure out what project to use them in.

The candy store up the street from me carries those, and also a Cthulhu moustache, which I suspect would be distinctly less useful for building terrain....

They had the moustache an the blow up arm attachment tentacle also...plus the tin of mints, I don't recall seeing anything else but I don't usually shop at gift stores as they are a tourist trap, but if I can find a cool gamer outlet....

Hehe, maybe I should go back and buy the jar an sell them!

A friend found these and mounted them with thick gauge copper wire inside so they can be bent into different shapes.

Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

Nice! I assume the copper wire came from a DIY store?

A seriously clever finish, Melnibonean.
