I've had every intention of making a "modern" Mongo Beefhead. :)  It's one of those bucketlist customs I've wanted to do and just never bothered with.  It was such a weird idea and design though, and I can see the modern bits working so well together too. 

This is inspiring me.  Doubt I get off my ass to do it, but it's inspiring me.

That was a fun project to do back in the day.

Mongo has a friend.

Imperial Attack Droid B

I remember that one! The most impractical attack droid the empire had. He keeps his gun over his head but has no way to reach it.

2-1-WTF? Is his designation.

Mongo was the only one who ever inspired me to work a modern version but I could see making that with some modification for a more practical design. :). He does look evil tho.

His impracticality is what made me want to make him. It wouldn't have been nearly as fun if it looked normal. I'd have loved to have been there when the Kenner employees were coming up with this stuff. They all said, "yeah stick 2 1B's arms on it's shoulders and throw Zuckuss' (4LOM) gun in it's hands, perfect. Let's bring this to our bosses"

Though if you think about it the rebels won't see him coming. They'll say oh look an Imperial Droid but he's walking the other direction and then peripheral vision shot kills them all.

My guess is he spins 360 at the waist firing until every one in the "plane of death" has been eliminated.
