Hello. This is my custom "Golden Scorpion" figure. I came up with this guy one day when sorting through some fodder from a Matrix APU.I started with a headless ML Ice-man figure,and painted it black. Used the fodder to create all of the cybernetic elements of the costume,including the legs and the stinger,adhering parts to the body as I went along.The helmet was sculpted with magic-sculpt. The entire figure was hand painted.The metal cyber-parts were primed in silver and then painted over in clear yellow.The costume details on the body were painted with an actual gold paint.
The scorpion legs and stinger are fully pose-able and can assume many positions. I really enjoyed coming up with this guy and putting him together. I hope you folks enjoy him too.Please feel encouraged to comment or critique! Thank you for checking him out!

That looks pretty wicked. I like it.
Can the Iceman joints support that weight? Looks heavy.
Nice job!

Thanks for the comment,I'm glad you like it! Good question about the weight. The Ice-man joints actually do support it. I tried to distribute the weight as evenly as I could down the back,but believe it or not the tail's not really that heavy. Thanks again for commenting!

Fun, very cool and original. I'd say, though, with all that brass color, it looks more like Steampunk equipment than modern. Maybe you could cobble a "Gaslight Era" version of the Golden Scorpion next.
