Marine Bear

Name of Model: Creations for Charity 2010 - Marine Toys for Tots Teddy Bear
Created by: au_riverhorse(Albert) - official site

Details: Did you know that the mascot for Toys For Tots is a bear wearing a US marine uniform? Their website layout shows this little guy. Here he is in LEGO form, with no expense spared. Those tan cheese slopes from the Tower Bridge kit round out the face nicely, while elements in gold colors (or is that custom chroming on those round 1x1 plates?) make the buttons and buckle stand out. A few large barrels make surprisingly convincing paws. The little guy even has properly cupped ears!

As of this writing, Creations for Charity is still going strong and this model is still available for purchase.
