Commando Elite Design
On 'Small Soldiers' I wasgiven the opportunity to design the many toys that come to life in the film with only the most basic direction from Stan Winston: G.I. Joe toys vs. Monster toys.

Commando Elite Design
One concept that presented itself while I designed was that if a toy really came to life it would struggle against the limitations of it's own manufacturing... useless plastic weapons and weak spring loaded assembly. I explored that idea and some of my designs worked their way into the film.

Scar Puss Gorgonite

 

This character was intended to be one of the featured 'Gorgonites', but was ultimately cut from the film. 'Scar Puss' had wimpy little legs that were useless so he would pull himself along by his arms to get around, then when it came time to fight he would extract his own head and use it as a club.
