A maintenance man at the Professor's lab, part-time bouncer at the nightclub McFantasy, and sometimes enforcer for the McMafia, Herbert Jenkins was known for having lots of muscles, little brains, and a short fuse. After a night of heavy drinking during his shift at McFantasy, Herbert stopped by the lab to pick up some personal items he'd left in his locker. Suffering from late-night drunken munchies and his already limited judgement clouded by alcohol, Herbert devoured a few of the sandwiches he thought were McRibs left by one of his coworkers. The sandwiches were in fact part of The Professor's latest experiment. The meat was giant wolf meat genetically modified with pig DNA in an attempt to simulate pork, creating a cheap and easy to procure meat source for the McRib sandwich. The sandwiches were meant for animal testing, and had been inadvertantly left out by The Professor as he went into his office to make a few phone calls. The sandwiches had an almost immediate effect on Herbert, he began to mutate as his body absorbed the genetically engineered meat and his own DNA was transformed. Fascinated by the results, The Professor kept Herbet alive with a series of injections that saved his life but caused an unfortunate side effect as virulent green pustules appeared on Herbet's body. As Herbert's transformation continued, he took on the appearance of a pig but gained increased strength and fortitude. The Professor smuggled Herbert out of the lab and delivered him to his allies in the Wasteland, where Herbert picked up the name McRib and joined the rebellion.

I started with a Bioshock Brute figure, found a pig toy, cut off its head and attached it to the stump of the neck and sculpted jowls, more pustules, hair, sideburns, and eyebrows, and finally added the pig's tail. I then painted this figure for what seemed like an eternity, there was so much detail in this figure, plus going with the McDonald's red and yellow color scheme is never fun since neither of those colors generally provides much coverage, although I did just pick up some Formla P3 paints and the moldy ochre is a good base for most yellows and provides nice coverage.

It's always a pleasure to see a new McDonaldland character by you.

I haven't commented on all your recent Mcdonalds customs but I've seen them all and I gotta say, this line is one of the most interesting lines I've seen any customizer do. I love the back stories and the customs themselves are excellent!! I learned a lesson from this one too, never eat anything unless your 100% sure what it is, guess I gotta stop eating at the golden arches too

Dude, another masterpiece! The paint job is beautiful on this freaking AWESOME anthropomorphic swine!!!
BRAVO!!!!
The color coordination of yellows and reds on both his shoes and shirt/vest is brilliant! Those green pustules are grossly beautiful!

Oh my!!! This guy is a SQUEALER!!! I almost thought you were gonna give him the last name "Porkins"...lol! This is an epic series! All the backstories could be a mini-novel!

I actually typed Porkins, then changed it thinking it was too goofy, even though Porkins is my favorite rebel pilot figure. William Hootkins was awesome, he was in the 3 most influential movies of my young life, Star Wars, Raiders, and Flash Gordon.
