The making of Teru's Bentie the Bentley custom Munny

Teru Fujita's Bentie the Bentley custom 7" Munny garnered a lot of attention at the Candy-Coated Custom Show... partly because it was such a technically complex custom, and partly because it was Teru's very first custom art toy.

Teru says he'd like to flesh this idea out into a set, with the next pieces possibly being a Lancia Stratos rally car, and then a VW bus.
