Space Marine (Metroid Prime) (Metroid) Custom Action Figure
|Name:||Space Marine (Metroid Prime)|
|Custom Type:||Action Figure|

The Glactic Marines show up for the first time in Metroid Prime 2 Echos and I loved the design of the characters. They have a very similar design to Samus with a large glass faceplate and gun arm however they lacked the morph ball and upgrade tech. Most of the Marines get wiped out however in Echos due to plague of Ing infested bugs that kill the entire landing party so we don't get to see them in much action. Metroid Prime 3 Corruption has you interacting with them however and they also act as support in some of the games various planets.
I got this figure when I was looking for the gun arm for Samus. He was a bonus until I realized what he looked like. The face section of this figure is a new sculpt and he was given the black then dry brushed silver treatment . I used 2 shades of silver for various parts and very minute gold for his paint scheme. The face plate was painted with a blend of Reaper Sky Blue and Folk Arts metallic blue. I then applied a very thin coat of watered down mettalic blue to give it the proper shimmer effect.
