PS2 Twigtall mini action figure

Twigtall

After Rolf and his companions, at great personal cost, put a stop to the out-of-control biomonster production and weather aberrations resulting from the malfunction of Planet Motavia's Bio-Systems Laboratory and Climatrol Tower facilities, the supposedly benevolent Mother Brain (the supreme artificial intelligence that oversees the entire Algo Solar System) immediately brands them all as criminals and sends out legions of her mechanical soldiers to exterminate the heroes. The "Twig" Series of robots makes up a substantial part of the forces deployed to Motavia on this search-and-destroy mission. As they are not terribly damage resistant, due to their spindly construction and light armor, Twig droids specialize in attacking from a distance, rather than closing directly with their opponents. Housed in the cranial cavity is a plasma cannon that can be directed at a single target with devastating effect--the recoil from this weapon is so strong that the robot must first brace itself with all five of its limbs before a shot can safely be fired. A Twig unit can also briefly accelerate its internal power drive, resulting in a spectacular electrical discharge that will severely injure all non-mechanical entities within a 7 meter (23 feet) radius. There are three known models in the Twig Series (in order, from least dangerous to most lethal): Metalman, Twig Man, and Twigtall (renamed Buddy, Budd Twig, and Budd Tail in Phantasy Star Generation 2).


Materials:
Newsprint, Kleenex, white glue, hot glue, crazy glue, wire twist ties, a piece of a paperclip, gloss nail polish, and acrylic paint.

Dimensions:
[NOTE: Due to the articulation, these values will vary depending on how the joints are positioned;
the numbers given assume a neutral standing pose.]
4.3 cm/1.7 in. x 8.7 cm/3.4 in. (widest point x highest point)

Articulation:
Forty-two points: Antennae (2); jaw; neck (2); shoulder hydraulic assembly (12); biceps (2); elbows (2); wrists (2); mid-torso; hips (3); hocks (6); fetlocks (6); and ankles (3).

Time:
Seven days: February 5, 6, 9, 12, 15, 28, and March 1 (2010).

Yup, the Cave Needle is from Altered Beast, and Zariche is from Defenders of Oasis, a 1992 Sega Game Gear RPG.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Missagh: Adding my Twigtall figure to the PS Cave Archives is fine with me. There can't be any better place for PS art to be than at a site dedicated to the game franchise after all.
