Plushie Max (with pics!)

edited December 2011 in Sam & Max
I made this thread instead of putting this in the fanart thread well, because there's way too many pics, and also because this isn't exactly a drawing.

Anyway, as I said before, my kid is 5 and wanted a plushie Max for Xmas so I thought I'd make one. It's ready! I tried to make him as accurate as possible.

Max is sturdy enough to stand on his own, but he needs to be propped against something. I made it this way so he could sit down. He's somewhat articulated, I made him a skeleton with a ton of pipe cleaners. I would have needed a thicker wire to actually be able to pose the arms, but since it's for my kid, I decided it might be dangerous.

It's good to relax!

Woo! Shake it baby!

Fighting crime is tough work!

Did I mention he talks?

That's right, you poke his belly button and he goes "Oooh I got it, I got it!". Thanks for William Kasten for providing the voice. I totally ripped it out from The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball. ;)

Also thanks to Steve Purcell for creating these awesome characters and for personally answering my question about the colors for Max's feet. Woot!

Hahaha, you crack me up Max, I mean Sam!

    Really? Your kid certainly has a good taste :D

    And it talks? ****ing awesome.

    Best Max plushie I've seen yet! The head looks great and overall proportions are very good. If it were just a little less lumpy I could mistake it for a professional one.

    The lumpiness is partly uneven sewing, which is my fault. But it's also partly the fault of the flash. It looks nicer in real life :D

    Now that I think about it, I think I need to add the toes, they're missing!

    Amazing! Now I'm sad we don't have a voice line of max saying "death from above!" for you.

    Thanks. Since I'm planning on changing the line from time to time, I guess this means you guys have to use that line in Season 4 ;)

    IT TALKS. OMG.. it's the most beautiful thing ever... *Q*

    Awesome Work!

    If it's available to buy i would like to buy one!
  • edited December 2010
    I would like to, but since Max it's not my character, I don't think that would be kosher :)

    Hopefully they'll get an official plushie Max soon...
  • edited December 2010
    I'm sure that Max wouldn't be considered kosher anyway. He probably bathes in Bacon Grease or something.

    Dammit, I could hug one all day. Awesome job. D: I want one.
  • edited December 2010
    Is it possible for you to put up a video of somebody activating the voicebox? God, I want one SO BAD.
  • edited December 2010
    I'll see if it can be done :D

    It's adorable! I want to cuddle it forever! He'd probably chew my head off but I don't care!
  • edited December 2010
    Hahah, thanks :D

    Still gotta make that video...

    I'm also toying with the idea of making the Lugermorph and putting some velcro on it so it can be attached...

    Hohohoho! Now plushie Sam, that would be something :D

    My kid really loves her plushie Max. It's that special friend she brings along to listen whenever I'm reading her a book.

    :D

    Shut up and take my money!

    No, seriously, how much are you thinking of selling this for?
  • edited November 2011
    I'm auctioning one, soon. Probably.

    Thing is, a RL friend asked for one. I said okay, but you have to pay for the material, the voice box, and stuff. She said yes.

    And now, if I know her well, she's having second thoughts and I'll probably be stuck with a second Max in my house.

    One Max is enough! :D

    Anyway, auction soon.

    This makes me wish I had my own credit card.
    Argh!

    Pff, thank you, I suppose?! I got linked to this thread on Tumblr from the person who made the Max plushie, so I had to bump since she mentioned selling or auctioning it.
