Arcanine! Hyper Beam Attack, Go!

Mind=blown. I saw pictures of this trickling in from BrickFair and couldn't believe what I was seeing. And now with decent photographs it's still hard to wrap my head around it. I can't fathom how building like this is accomplished. The WIP pictures make clear how it's suspended on one paw, but they don't explain how this can be done. I'm impressed. I understand the logic of keeping the BG flaws in to emphasize the single point of contact, but this thing deserves to be properly photographed.
