I am curious about a few thingie bodies that are unidentified as to the creator and manufacturer of these marvelous wonders.

 

If you have information please post it here! I offer three with a few more to come shortly.

 

Thanks greatly everyone.

Max, 

 

Those all look like modern creations or recreations, no idea of who could have made them. The first one looks like it's based on a Garvic X-Stream.

I believe Gary Vogel carved and formed the last one.  Looks like his work at least.

Seem to remember the top one being molded/pulled by a UK member who took part in one of the many Thingie Proxies :D

Really sweet looking shell!!
