tinplatestudios. A quick browse of their storefront revealed a ton of neat creations like the Chattergrub (shown at right) with the same odd and unique style. This item is going for $45 on etsy which I don't think is half bad for what it is. A person trying to create an evil laboratory would almost have to have this sitting on a shelf.
From the description: "If its darling little claws don't work their way into you, then its horrifying dentition will! Mind your fingers!"
As of this writing the Chattergrub has 122 reviews with an average 5-star rating. I did look through to see what the negative comments were. One user described getting a product that didn't have as much detail as the one pictured here. From all of the positive reviews, I'm going to go ahead and label that one a fluke.
Do any readers have experience with this item firsthand? If so, leave a message in the comments!
Trevor's Rating of the Chattergrub: 94% (For a piece that would be great as a set prop in a Steampunk movie. I'm crossing my fingers to see it happen after writing it here).
