Nobody asked but you’ll -shore- as fuck receive anyway! TROLL-FURBIES!!!
Here are three generations of troll furby, lovingly crafted by imperial crocker-tech and beloved of wigglers and hated by rebels everywhere (with the exception of the sometimes-rebellious circuit bending community!)
1. Original, sometimes referred to as ‘listeners’ by the educated. Comes in imperial red, black and white in various combos. They have glistening compound eyes and an antenna disguised as a horn. They detect heat signatures (good for telling castes apart! and if people are in the room!) and, as the name suggests, they -listen-. If they pick up certain keywords in speech, they will record and transmit to empire intelligence channels! Furby circuit benders sometimes reverse engineer them to listen in on empire systems, or just spy on people they don’t like. Some remove the horn on their furby, which is somewhat barbaric considering they’re biotech and probably feel some level of pain, but it effectively ‘disarms’ them from empire comm lines, making them a normal robotic pet.
2. ‘Boom’ edition. More up to date and cuter than ever! These have more aesthetic fur prints in grey and red- ‘diamonds’ is an extremely popular pelt variety and makes them seem like more of an ally and companion to owners. The screen ‘eyes’ will change caste colour depending on the treatment given to the furby. Treat it like trash? It will become a demure maroon! Pamper them? A demanding purple! The different caste modes have different attitudes and this furby can nip you during feeding. There’s also a ‘furby boom rainbow caste’ edition which is ‘caste locked’ with blood coloured fur! …. The ‘Boom’ part? Oh yeah. They can be remotely detonated by the empire. Fun! Be sure to diffuse yours, but be careful, they know if they’re being tampered with<333
3. CrockerNet edition! The fanciest, most up to date and arguably the friendliest on face value! They even have net connectivity and can send and receive your trillion messages for you, sing songs, and learn! Too bad they can also access all your digital devices, accounts, and report findings back to base. Comes in pastels as well as the traditional red-white-black combos.
There are also waterproof ‘sea dweller’ versions, not pictured here!
‘circuit bending’ is a real life phenomena where people hack and mod mechanical and robotic toys, often for use as electronic musical instruments, but sometimes as answering machines, gadgets and other cool robotic stuff! I figure that if humans can do it, trolls probably do this 200% better. I can also see it being popular with kid trolls who dream of being rebels or leet hackers.
Sketch request from last week’s livestream. There were some great requests and we all had a lot of fun, but by far the best suggestion was for a heavy metal troll that soon spiraled out of control. Some brainstorming later we determined he’s a badass necromancer, raising the dead with his magical (three-stringed, because troll) guitar and some SICK SHREDDING!!
This one will definitely be modified, cleaned up, and made available as a T-shirt or print in my RB store in the future. I may even clean it up on a stream.
Toby watched his friend glide about the kitchen, both impressed and annoyed. Jim’s cooking skills never ceased to amaze him, but that boy hadn’t had a full nights sleep in at least a week and a half. To be fair, none of them had been sleeping well lately, but Jim seemed to be deliberately avoiding it.
“He still going?”
Toby glanced over at the equally worn out Claire, who was leaning against the nearest wall to observe, and gave a brief ‘hm’ of affirmation.
That night’s encounter with the supernatural had left the three kids exhausted and wary. Thankfully, they hadn’t had to face it alone. The three trolls that had helped them were currently in the living room, discussing something. Once their conversation ended, Aaargh would go with Toby back to Nana Domzalski’s house, and Blinky would ensure that Claire got home safely before returning to Trollmarket to document a few interesting things they had learned. Draal would remain near the Lake household for a few more hours, keeping watch, and then head back to Trollmarket before dawn.
Toby looked back towards Jim, who had completed his cooking, stored the food for later consumption, and was now beginning cleanup. Toby grimaced.
“You can always leave the dishes for tomorrow, Jim. It wouldn’t kill you to leave them for one night.” His advice fell on deaf ears as Jim simply continued cleaning.
“Hey, Jim.” Silence
“Jimbooo. Jim-a-jam. Jimmy Neutron.”
Still no acknowledgement. That last one usually got a reaction out of him, he had a deep loathing for being referred to as 'Jimmy Neutron.’ Toby narrowed his eyes.
“He’s on full autopilot,” Claire mumbled tiredly, her eyes slightly unfocused. “Honestly, he could be sleep walking.”
Toby made a face. This called for drastic measures. He walked towards the refrigerator, out of Jim’s path, and opened the freezer door. While the sudden blast of freezing air took the edge off of his tiredness, it seemed the mere realization of what he was planning did the same for Claire. She sat up, eyes alert, as Toby retrieved a couple of ice cubes from the tray and turned to Jim, who stood facing the sink and scrubbing another dish. Claire had to clap a hand over her mouth to keep from laughing outright as Toby walked purposefully towards his unaware friend, reached up, and began to pull the neck of his shirt back…
“Well, it’s settled then,” Blinky concluded. Arrrgh and Draal were nodding in agreement. “We may as well leave the rest for tomorrow night. We need to-”
He was abruptly cut off as Jim’s voice echoed from the kitchen, shrieking like a scalded cat.
The shorter teen came bolting from the direction of the kitchen, giggling madly and diving to hide behind Arrrgh as one enraged James Lake Jr followed close behind, clutching something cold and dripping in one hand. Jim barely registered the trolls presence before attempting to vault over him. Arrrgh quickly reached up and caught the irate Trollhunter, holding him easily as he flailed and fired insults and threats involving the very ice cubes he held at the still laughing Tobias. Draal watched the whole mess, thoroughly entertained by the young ones antics, and Blinky looked questioningly over at Claire. She was unable to give him an answer, it seemed, as she too had devolved into helpless laughter and was doubled over in hysterics, practically clinging to the door frame.
Blinky shook his head and allowed a small smile to cross his face. Trollhunters or not, kids would be kids. After everything they had been through together, and what they would face in the future, he could not bring himself to begrudge them their fun.

Maybe you've seen them already, but another of those disgusting trolls left three awful comments on M's last IG post. I just reported the account and every comment, I don't really have any faith in IG's team doing anything right, seeing how even that awful account from a few weeks ago, which I know many people did report, is still there, but... well, just in case. People are so disgusting, it depresses me.
People just need to learn to be nice and leave the shit they don’t like alone 😒
(Sorry this took so long for me to reply to, I didn’t see the notif!)
I said I would draw Human/Troll babies of me and the three main Trolls. So I am delivering them to you, the Trollhunters fandom. I wanted their appearance to mostly take after the their fathers. The children are all female because in the closer members of my family we have baby girls more often than baby boys.
I love Amelia and Becky’s designs, but Roxanne leaves much to be desired. I still love all three of them despite that.
