In the planning stages of the project, we came up with the idea for a moon based super weapon and it stood to reason one of us would have to make that weapon. I had a WIP in a very primitive stage for a large gun sitting around that used a found item in the form of a large plastic protective shipping dome that came off a photography flash setup. I popped that onto the Halo energy station and it looked very promising. The Sonic Screwdriver made a nice barrell for the weapon and the control panel and fuel source were pieced together from my parts bins. It does actually rotate and my son will most likely be stealing it and making it his own.

From the desk of DanOfTheDead: Glitch 3.0 with BUG (Bionic UpGrade Symbiote)

When Bucky approached me about contributing a figure to the third round of Resurgence, we bounced a few ideas around until I asked if anyone was working on a new version of Glitch, my personal favorite character from the first two years of the project, and he let me take a crack at it.

I eventually combined my plans for Glitch with an idea I had for a Joe themed DARPA Big Dog robot, and started trying all sorts of random part combinations. When I came up with the basic build of the accessory robot, I thought it would be a neat play feature if its parts could be interchangeable with Glitch.

I tried to make use of parts that had been used for Glitch and some of the SWARM characters, suggesting that he had to rebuild himself using SWARM debris after the events of Resurgence 2.
