This one was an odd choice. It was suggested to me, really. And with the suggestion came a Spawn figure. Not sure who it was, but likely recognizable by the head. So, at one point in the comics the Thing's face was slashed by Wolverine. Messed him up pretty bad, so he decided to don a helmet for a while. Originally, I just intended to dremel out the helmet and paint up the face and leave it at that. And even though the helmet was taking forever to hollow out, I still felt like I should do more. So I looked at the image once more and decided to repaint the costume to match it. I also added a couple small pieces of sculpt to the head so the scarred side actually does look a bit more messed up. After I got the head hollowed out I still had to go back and add some sculpt to the bottom to lengthen it a bit. I wish the helmet could have been a little more accurate, but it doesn't look too bad.
