This is a Mechanical Spider hand assembled from recycled watch parts including gears, watch plates, winding stems, and spring barrels.
Spider No 20 presents a new design for my spider creations. Rather than the body being just soldered together stems and spring barrels, it consists of a chassis-like assembly made with watch plates connected by stems. Onto this chassis are soldered the spring barrels and stems for eyes, the legs, the light bulb and a few gears for added mechanical effect.
Each leg consists of four different watch winding stems that have been cut down to size and soldered at the joint. Each leg has three soldered joints.
After the legs have been soldered individually, they are grouped into sides, and each side is soldered together. The sides are then soldered to the body chassis.
Therefore, the legs themselves take thirty four soldered joints.
The chassis on this particular spider has around eighteen solder points, for a total of fifty-two different areas that need to be joined together.
There is no glue or resin to be found in the piece...everything is soldered into place with metal. This is a one of a kind work of art, never to be exactly reproduced.
He measures 52mm wide by 50mm front to back by 22mm tall and comes with a 3" by 4" glass display dome with wood base. He is extremely fragile and should be handled sparingly and very gently, and is most definitely not a toy.
Here's a alternate design for the M6G. Casting by Smick6, paint and decals applied by me, Mr. Arms

This is a half set of basic armor that was commissioned recently. Included is the breastplate, pauldrons, arms with vambrace, rerebrace, and elbow cop, tassets, scale 'crotch flap' and greaves. Lite embellishments of rabbit fur along the breastplate and vambraces.
The client wanted something along the lines of a 'northman' or barbarian style armor in a specific deep red color.
Be sure to check out my new Prince Armory website. I was able to make some progress on it while I had some down time from being sick. [link]
The Galactus Buster Iron Man armor is teased at the ending for the Marvel vs Capcom 3 video game when you beat it using Iron Man and you see Tony Stark building the Galactus Buster suit to combat against cosmic threats. Here I expanded upon the idea and created a custom Galactus Buster Marvel Legends figure using the center body from a DC Direct Stel, Mark 42 head and lower arms/lower body from a DC Universe Lex Luthor in armor figure with extended legs. His helmet and extra armored sections come from various Halo and Mega Blocks Iron Man parts. Generally Iron Man's armor is red and gold but in the teaser shot it has Galactus' colors in it, assuming that he used actual material from the defeated Devourer of Worlds to create the most powerful Iron Man armor in the galaxy!

A new clockwork arthropod made from watch parts and soldered together with lead free silver bearing solder. Of the Creature family: [link]
Like Creature, he has fiddler crab style claws. The most intricate body-chassis I've done to date. Started out as a bit of an "engine" assembly built around a heart of a brass winding stem knob. Balance wheels, bridges, stems, brass train gears, spring bars and other parts make up the core. An automotive lightbulb makes up the abdomen. The rear is inspired a bit by the war machine version of The Iron Giant. A balance wheel with spokes cut out forms a ring of support for the abdomen. Watch stems hold the balance wheel to the body, allowing greater support for the abdomen. Each side is different, yet organically balanced, much like real life. Watch bands act as neck support/spines. For more picture of this guy: [link]
