One of the four villainous invading aliens (Multiflex, Dumpjumper, and Thrashmor round out the quartet) that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles must contend with in the 2008 Playmates TMNT: Alien Hunter toy assortment. All four of said intergalactic critters are new characters created specifically for said wave of toys.
Little is know of Buzzrok's origins or capabilities. It's possible that the creature's race evolved from an insect physiologically similar to one of Earth's praying mantis species. Either on the ground, or airborne, Buzzrok utilizes its scythe-like lower arms, barbed whip, pistol, and trident to assault opponents.
Newsprint, tissue paper, white paper, white glue, hot glue, wire twist ties, a paperclip, plastic, and acrylic paint.
(* The numbers given are approximations, as the dimensions of this figure can vary considerably depending on how the joints are positioned, especially the wings.)
7.0 cm/2.8 in. x 4.2 cm/1.7 in. (highest point x widest point)
Forty points total: Neck (4), wings (4), shoulders(4), elbows (8), wrists (4), chest, waist, hips (2), hocks (4), fetlocks (4), and ankles (4). Additionally, the whip accessory is bendable and the pistol holster has one point of articulation where it plugs into Buzzrok's waist.
Roughly five days: Construction ran from October 12-18, 2008, with no work performed on the 13th or 14th.
I spent the first day of this project sculpting the legs.
The second day's work resulted in most of the body and head being completed.
On day three, I finished up the head and made the upper arms, neck, and scythe blades on the lower arms.
Here, on the fourth day, I finished up the rest of the lower arms, made the wings, shoulder pauldron, and modified the lower torso. The basic figure sculpt is now complete.
These are Buzzrok's accessories, complete, but unpainted/unassembled, that I made on the fifth, and final, day of this project.
For comparison purposes, below is an image of the actual 2008 Playmates TMNT: Alien Hunter Buzzrok toy. While the card-backs of the North American Alien Hunter TMNT figures advertise Buzzrok as available, it (and Multiflex) were only released in the United Kingdom. The action figure has ten points of articulation.
(In no particular order of importance.)
