In 2013 I decided to have a full size Morlock constructed, the following photos illustrate its construction.

The first one (Dug) was constructed by a team of 6. Myself, Todd Rex (T Rex) , Chris Bergschneider, Sheila Mia Seifi, Michelle Collins, Kevin Haney, and Ernesto Cornejo.My wife and I have since decided to keep Dug and Dug now has a twin brother Digger who is one year younger.

We made a fiberglass positive from the mold immediately as an insurance in case anything untoward should happen to the silicone mold

Threw some hair on him just to see how he would look
 

 

First pull of the mold with a silicone skin and hard foam backing. Didn't realize just how short he is until now
