Now, I love making battle beast customs, but a few months ago my interest was starting to wane (just a teeny tiny bit).  I was looking for a NM Ox to finish my basic set and stumbled across an ebay seller offering buyers choice of virtually any beast.  In this single glorious photo were 2 undisclosed, not for sale beasts I had never seen.  I was astonished.  I was intrigued.  I became mildly obsessed.  Honestly, this single photo led to me searching everywhere on the net and eventually to discovering the absolute wonderment of LRG.  Thank you very much photo.  I learned that the mysterious beasts were the Canadian War Monsters line and I also quickly learned how unlikely it was that I would get my hands on some (though I have seen a single ebay auction for 3 that went off for $225).  This was an unacceptable proposition. 

 

                                                                            And so behold:

How could I not slice and dice myself a custom set?  What i liked most about this process, is that it seemed almost like the entire line was made by a mad scientist.  Trying to break them down, I realized that besides the obvious Tiger, Zebra, Bat, Snake, Gator, and Buffalo I would also need parts from a Spider, Rhinoceros, Porcupine, Deer, Bear, Shark, Ant Eater, Fox, and from my own designs Moose, Panther, and Tapir.  I tried to mimic the originals as best I could in actual design. When it came to the painting, I mimicked, but then had to give them some flourish to make them my own.  Enjoy!!!

War Monster Bobcat is: Crocodile Legs, Rhino Torso, Porcupine arms, Ant Eater Hand, and.......Panther head (to which I added the cheeks of an actual tiger figure's head).  I originally was going with the tiger head on it's own, but wasn't happy with the mouth in comparison to the original.  I toyed around a little with panther and ended up pretty happy with the result.

Bull

War Monster Bull is: Moose legs, Buffalo torso, Moose arms, and Buffalo head.  The hand is an amalgam of one of the claspers from Ant Eater's weapon and a spike through the center

Gator

War Monster Gator is: Bear Legs, Gator Torso and head.  Getting the arms right was tricky. I matched Ant Eater shoulders to Shark forearms, and used the Tapir Hands to simulate the actual claw design.  I also had to attach the Gator tail.  Who can't love that little stump?

Bat

War Monster Bat is: Rhino Feet, Bat legs and Torso, Tiger Arms, Bat head.  I added a sticker holder to the torso. I clipped the wings a bit to help match up, to mediocre success.  For the face, I originally was planning on simply scarring up the right side, but by the end of that effort I had made such a hole that I tried inserting an upside down bat eye and cheek from another figure.  Quite a bit of sanding later and I think it worked out nicely.  The hand blade was carved from the leftover torso of a snake.

Snake

War Monster Snake is:  Spider legs and Torso. I then grafted the snake neck and head on and added a sticker holder. I just happened to have some Moose parts lying around from the bull mod and so I used the antlers for the neck flair. I thought about shaving them down, but ended up leaving the ridges. The left arm is snake into spider hand.  The right arm is a little funky because I salvaged some random snake arms to graft together and give it a similar shoulder to hand look as the left.

Unicorn

War Monsters Unicorn is: Buffalo legs, Fox Torso, Buffalo arms, Deer Drill, Zebra Head, and Rhino Horn.  Somehow, despite using 5 figure's pieces, this one was the easiest.

All remaining parts have found a wondrous future purpose already, except for a singular snake torso, which shall now be chopped and diced for random accoutrement

Wow, I love the expression on the Bobcat nice work. I'm missing the red Ox or Bull Canadian War Monsters and then I'll have all six without accessories. Does anyone have any extras for sale?

Hi there fellas.

 

I've had these two (Croc and Bobcat without rubs and weapons) since I was young and I am considering to sell them to a fellow collector (not a friend, so no charity). It seems impossible to find any sold listings of these on eBay so I googled and found this forum... Help me out here, what would be a decent price for the two?

 

Kind regards

Hannes
