The Legend of Sum

November 18th, 2007
In the 1950’s tradition of “The Son of Frankenstein” here is the prototype sculpt of my “Son of SUM”, pictured admiring his proud Dad.

The Son of Sum figure will soon be available from the Plaseebo Custom websiteas a small series of Custom hand painted ULTRA LIMITED cast urethane pieces.

He is apollution fighting chip off the old block and will be helping his Dad take revenge on irresponsible farmers.

This is a synopsis of the story of Sum, written by Bob Conge, on which the character development of the figure is based.

“THE LEGEND OF SUM”

Driving home from the local red neck bar one moon lit summer night, Roy swerves his pick up toward a dark shape that is slowly moving along side the road. A loud CRACK shatters the darkness as the front tire breaks the giant snapping turtles’ shell in two, right down the center. The great snapper rolls down the embankment into the stream and Roy’s laughing fades as the truck turns to cross the bridge to his shabby farm house across the stream.

The turtle, floating belly up is carried downstream to the other side and is swept into a quiet eddy where he sinks watching the moon fade from yellow to blood red through the darkening water.

This small pool cut into the bank of the stream was at the back Roy’s property and he used it as his personal dump site. The water caught in this hole became a terrible toxic soup of motor oil, fertilizer, broken toys, bones and entrails of many slaughtered animals, rusty tools and who knows what else.

Over the next few months, a strange transformation took place in this evil chowder as it baked in the summer heat. A creature of revenge, born of cruelty and neglect slid its way out of the sickening mess one dark September night.

Roy’s body was never found, nor could anyone explain the slime trail from the bedroom through the field behind the house.

Over the years that followed, other neglectful farmers vanished on moonless nights and folks reported vague sightings of a creature that seamed to be cobbled together from a collection of garbage, an old doll, bone, rotted skin, and broken tools, with a large snapping turtle skull for a head. They call him “SUM”.
