Type: Rock/Steel
Species: Shield Pokémon
Height: 1.3 m (4′03″)
Weight: 149.5 kg (329.6 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Bastiodon is from roughly 100 million years ago. Despite its rough, intimidating appearance, Bastiodon is actually a docile, caring Pokémon that feeds on grass and Berries. Its steel-hard, shield-like face is capable of repelling any attack. When multiple Bastiodon line up, their faces form a wall that nothing can break through; this was how they protected their young. In stark contrast to its impenetrable frontal defense, it is vulnerable from behind. It seems to have lived in the same habitats as Rampardos, as evidenced by their fossils often being found together.

NOTES: The head, body and legs are all separate pieces here to make it a bit easier to assemble everything at the end. In theory you can start with whichever set of pieces, but I would start with the head (still following the numbers), assemble the body, then finish out with the feet. Before gluing anything together go ahead and place the feet with the body to get a feel of how things go together, then start gluing the legs onto the feet. Attach the head to the neck next, being sure it's stable. The teeth and tusks can go on whenever as well, placing as shown in pictures/pdo.
