I'm addicted to DDR. I need a 12-step program.

When I joined the Douglas Adams swap (gallery here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=242756.0;all), I knew I wanted to do something involving Marvin. With lines like, "Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they ask me to bring you down to the bridge. Do you call that job satisfaction? 'Cause I don't," how can you not love him? And being voiced by Alan Rickman just makes him that much better. Cheesy

I tried to make him look hunched over, but it doesn't really show up that way in the photo. Unfortunately, I made him with flesh-colored Super Sculpey, not realizing that it would take five years to get enough coats of paint on him to get him white. But it was well worth it, don't you think? Grin


Bonus: His eyes glow in the dark!

It sure was hard to send him to his new home!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Fantastic piece!  I will have Alan Rickman's droning, unhappy commentary going through my head all day now but somehow this is still a good thing.   Grin

(I commend your ability to actually give him up.  I don't know that I would have been able to!)
