OK, a bit adventurous and not 100% hapy with the outcome but I've been gagging to do a hoverchair since I first heard we were supposed to get a variant in ML9. I gues Rateeg got my butt in gear again after seeing his beautiful Showdown version. Charlie here uses a basic head swap onto longshots body with SOTA Remys hands. The collar is just glued down and the head is obviously a ML9 Xavier.
For the chair, I wanted to make it as light as possible as I knew anything too heavy would be tricky to 'hover' or pose. I dremeled the original wheelchair to death leaving just the seat, arm rests and a small bit at the from remaining. The front section is the top of a showergel bottle and the rest is very carefully measured Darice Foamy Sheets. The stand came with a Hawkeye skybike and fits into a little hole sculpted at the bottom allowing it to be raised and lowered at different heights. I have a feeling I'll revisit the chair once I find an easier material to work with but for now he looks right at home in my display :)
