Jade Jaguar by JordanGreywolf Jade Jaguar by JordanGreywolf
This is a plastic "Happy Meal" toy from way back when "The Road to El Dorado" came out in theaters.  It's basically a big plastic toy of the animated jaguar statue from the movie, with a silly "glowing eyes" effect accomplished by having these clear plastic inserts for the eyes with a couple of "windows" up near the ears -- so if I position the light JUST RIGHT above the figure, it makes those "eyes" glow menacingly.  (It looked more impressive in person, really, than I was able to capture with the camera.  ;)  )

Anyway, this figure has seen a lot of use over time.  I've dry-brushed him with various shades of green and yellow to try to bring out texture and diminish the shine of the plastic a bit, and at some point I added some green fiber "flocking" in an attempt to suggest jungle overgrowth.  More recently, I stuck it on a 120mm resin base so I could use it as an adversary in an Iron Kingdoms RPG campaign, as a wold-like guardian of an ancient jungle "lost city."  Sometimes plastic toys make the best (and most cost-efficient!) "miniatures" for those "big boss fight" scenarios.  :)
