Speed Modelling Challenge #236 - Vinyl Figure

1.Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
2.Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php)
3.LightWave must be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
4.You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
5.Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
6.The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's.

This week's topic: Vinyl Figure

EDIT: LMAO :D ! I'm obviously one week behind or I just made the worst vinyl figure ever!!! I could remove it and hope nobody ever saw how stupid I was, but what the h eck... I'll leave it as an entry. It's a five-eyed monster with a lot of bellybuttons and a tail ;-)

Sorry about the lack of info I put it up kind of late last night -.-
Modeling was about 45 minutes.
Surfacing about 20.
Render about 1 min.

Here's the wires as well.

I'm overtime on this little 710 poly.... rascal.

I think it's something from Hello Kitty, so I had to rough it up a bit. :devil:
Anyway, it kicked my butt. All work and no modeling for two weeks makes JoePoe a dull boy. :D

Great work everybody! Vinyl figures looks "CGI" even in reality so why not make them real CGI :D
Thanks for sharing your sketches ANS.
Congrats Steven!
