Graboid reference pictures

Postby rawen100 » Sun Mar 21, 2010 12:25 pm

I want to model a 3D graboid, but am lacking enough reference pictures to complete it. I know enough about the anatomy to fill the gaps, but it's much better with actual drawings or pictures of a graboid.
So my question to you, do you have pictures of a graboid from as many different angles as possible? Top, bottom, sides, front, rear and tilted?
Many thanks in advance.

Thanks! You found some that I hadn't before.
Only wish there were some of the whole thing, only time we get to see their "ass end" is in Tremors I guess.
Thanks again.

In tremors 4 we also see the back of a graboid at the end of the movie. Come to think of it, we see the whole worm out of the ground at the end! So definitely check that part out.

And in The Key episode Nancy is holding a Graboid drawing near the beginning of the episode. Maybe pausing and looking at that pic will help.

Plush monsters

I'm really surprised we haven't seen some cutesy Japanese import that is a plush graboid pillow containing a plush shrieker and 'blaster in a zippered belly pouch. Hopefully with wire-bendy tentacle tongues.

It'd be way cooler than those giant fish pillows the local Bass Pro shop sells...

I've seen that, pretty cool. At this point I would settle for any Tremors collectible. We don't have anything :'( .

EDIT: Also, hows the model coming? Have you started it yet?

Wow that stature looks amazing. I really wish at least a review for it would come out on the internet. I believe only 100 were made.
