Mothman
Oh my God! It's Mothman!
About this creation
The Mothman is a creature reportedly seen in the Charleston and Point Pleasant areas of West Virginia from November 12, 1966, to December 1967. Most observers describe the Mothman as a winged man-sized creature with large reflective red eyes and large moth-like wings. The creature was sometimes reported as having no head, with its eyes set into its chest.

A number of hypotheses have been presented to explain eyewitness accounts, ranging from misidentification and coincidence, to paranormal phenomena and conspiracy theories.

On November 15, 1966, two young, married couples from Point Pleasant, David and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, were traveling late at night in the Scarberrys' car. They were passing the West Virginia Ordnance Works, an abandoned World War II TNT factory, about seven miles north from Point Pleasant, in the 2,500 acre (10 kmē) McClintic Wildlife Management Area, when they noticed two red lights in the shadows by an old generator plant near the factory gate. They stopped the car, and reportedly discovered that the lights were the glowing red eyes of a large animal, "shaped like a man, but bigger, maybe six and a half or seven feet tall, with big wings folded against its back", according to Roger Scarberry. Terrified, they drove toward Route 62, where the creature supposedly chased them at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. However, as quoted in Keel's The Mothman Prophecies, the Scarberrys, despite driving more than 100 miles per hour, claimed to have noticed a dead dog on the side of the road, and in fact made such accurate note of its location that they claimed to have gone back the very next day and looked for it. Explanations for how they were able to make so accurate a mental note at a time of such great distress, or why they would go back to look for the dead dog, are not included in Keel's book.

Mothman even has his own statue located in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, made by Robert Roach.

"Oh my God! What is that?" "I don't know! It looks like a half-man, half-insect!"

Well done. I'm going to have to agree with Gringat for mouth parts. Mothman info: first sighting- 11/12/66 in Clendenin, WV. Five men were digging a grave when they saw a "brown human being" fly over them. They said it looked like a man with wings. It is described to be 5-7 feet tall and wider than a man, it shuffles on humanlike legs, and have glowing, red eyes. Skin color is murky gray or brown. Emits a humming song when flying, and can screeh. Capable of ascending vertically like a helicopter.

Nice idea. I like it. If you make a MKII, use an Indiana Jones whip for the mouthparts?----- Oh, and Lord Karnus' feet come from the Power Miners set I used in the combination. Just click the links on there if you want to see it.
