To me Destro was always like second in command of Cobra. And he was the weapons supplier. I wanted him to be really big and buff like how Rob Zombie re-visioned Micheal Myers.
The boots are from a Captain America MLIcon. Now I know that Destro doesn't traditionally wear swashbucklers, but I thought it looked pretty good.
The right glove is 2 pieces of left over armor from a Toy Biz Green Goblin. The middle missile is actually a G.I.Joe missile. The other 2 are repulsor blasts from an Iron Man. With all that missile on a gauntlet I felt like Destro might could use a little upper arm armor.
The left glove is many pieces from the fodder box. I didn't like the concept of carrying grenades on a gauntlet so I opted for a blaster. Maybe some high tech blaster gauntlet that only a weapons supplier would have.
Both hands are from a S3 sculpt Cyborg Superman.
The necklace is removable. The grenade on the belt is removable. The gun is removable from the holster and can fit into the right hand. The gun is from the Final Fantasy chick.
The head is from a super cheap discount figure. It was cut and filled with apoxie with a neck peg. The mask collar and the coat collar are both apoxie.
The cape is from the Valor vs. Venom Cobra Commander. I like it much better on Destro.
Originally I was going to make the boots and belt all black, but after I painted the top parts black, I kept looking at it and decided that I liked it like that. And likewise after I saw the red stripes at the shoulders for the cape, I felt like a red belt would be perfect.
The inside of the case is not yet finished... but definitely planned.
