First off this is both my first custom, first sculpting job and first paint job, so dont be too gentle but please give me all the suggestions and advice you guys have!! I started with an old Hulk figure which had one of his arms broken right off. I figured id give this whole custom thing a go and started searching for other donor parts to build my idea of Frankenstein. I found what I was looking for in an uruk-hai warrior and the orc rider which were also both damaged. I cut them both at the waist and did some trimming until I had the basic fitment where I wanted them to attatch and fixed them to the body with Loctite apoxie. Next I removed the hulks head and fit a ball joint into the middle of the hulks chest for the new head to be held on and swivel with. The head was from an old small soldiers Troblicon. All the sculpting was done with super sclupey. Lost the mobility in the hulks lateral arm movement so I made that part of the build and pretended it had been "soldered" shut and only had some of the use of his arm left. The backstory for this guy is that he was made by an un-named top level anatomical scientist. When the man behind the funding turned out that he wanted the research for, non benevolent reasons, the scientist attempted to hide his success. Both "Frank" and the chemical behind the ability to sustain life and supercharge the bodies were hidden out of sight. When the funder found out about this, he caught the scientist and tortured him, ending the treatment by implanting the great mind of the scientist into a dying, broken, destroyed corpse. However it was done in a primitive way, leaving the scientist in constant agony. Frank was thought to not be able to learn and to be only able to follow orders. However the scientist left a driving system on frank so that he can essentially pilot Frank. And with time, he discovers that Frank is capable of learning, and advances mentally like a child. More backstory as I get the other characters done, and Ill update this once my Scientist is finished but, here is the successful life experiment. Code 'Frank'.
