Demon Dogs
« on: April 11, 2015, 11:17:33 AM »
Has anyone attempted to make Demon Dog replicas from 102- The Robot Vs. The Aztec Mummy? If nobody has, it's strange because eBay is loaded with the Masters of the Universe "Battle Bones" toys, I'd think people would have made some by now. Tom from Mst3k temple has one, as well as Enoch the King of the Dog People.

I've always wanted to do one, but never found a Battle Bones at the right price.

The ones on ebay, are decent priced, $23.00, there's one on etsy for $14.95, that's decent, unless you want dirt cheap. ;)

I'm waiting on a good FLEA market find ;)

Here's a post that Rob Vincent made on the Yahoo Bot Builders group:



If you are making one of the regular Demon Dogs, you just have to:

1) Glue together the Battle Bones at the middle junction point, and glue
the handle on.
2) Glue on ears cut out of something leathery, a stiff fabric, felt, or
vinyl should do it.
3) Spray-paint the dog bright pink, with a few tiny light sprays of
black to make thin shadowy spots.  You can leave the underside white or
paint the whole thing, the on-screen Demon Dogs had both styles visible.
4) Paint the eye sockets, the nose horn, and the inside of the mouth black.
5) Add a puppetry stick if desired, just to wave it about in some
manner.  Or just attach him to your wall.

If you're doing Enok, King of the Demon Dogs, you have to:

A) Glue together the Battle Bones at the middle junction point, and glue
on the handle on.
B) Cut off the Battle Bones' tail and head, and set the head aside.
C) The Battle Bones' back becomes Enoch's front.  To do this you have to
switch the legs around, and reattach the head at a 90-degree
forward-facing angle.
D) Add the ears and paint him as above
E) Add puppetry if desired; it seems like a cord attaches to the back of
Enoch's head and pulls it up.
F) Add a black cloak made of heavy black felt which has been decorated
with gold glitter on the inside.
G) Make him a little bow tie of the same black felt
H) Glue on a fancy moustache made out of some black felt or yarn.

You can see Enoch and a regular Demon Dog at
http://www.mst3ktemple.com/props.html , keeping in mind that the paint
on the originals seems to have faded to a darker red.

I was happy how mine turned out.

WOW!  It looks awesome!  And terrifying.  Yet somehow adorable.

Well done!  ;D

I actually found the main body of a Battle Bones at a flea market a while back. Sadly, it's missing the top of the head, so the project's gonna be on hold for a while. I also need to re-connect the different parts of the body.

Last time I was at my local antique mall, they had an entire shelf of just Masters of the Universe stuff, and there were three Battle Bones there!  I didn't nab them because I was short on money, plus I have a complete one already.  I have all but the spine connector/handle and the rear legs for a second one that I wanted to turn into Enoch, but just buying a whole new one will probably come out to the same price as tracking down three tiny parts on eBay. 

Don't you hate it when you want to buy a 99 cent piece of plastic... but the shipping is $3.99?  :P
