Sad Bob the Builder
I had this idea a while ago when all the stop-motion companies were shutting down or moving, i thought what would happen to jobless puppets which led to Bob the Bum. a year or two later when i was looking in a charity shop i saw a muck toy and it jogged my memory. toy in hand i looked for bob but i couldn't find one so i sculpted him instead. one small detail that i was quite pleased with was his lighter in his belt. anyway, i had also recently bought a heat gun and a precision screwdriver set, so i dismantled muck, melted him in places, wrecked his tracks and put his mouth on upside-down. i also added eyelids to finish the unhappy look and gave him a new paint job and props. i also added some water effects and plants to make it look like he had been there for a while.
