Scorpion Alien (Aliens) Custom Action Figure
|Custom Type:||Action Figure|
|Creator:||Jin Saotome |
|Date Added:||October 8, 2013|
|Base Figure:||Prometheus Engineer|
Watch out it's a blast from the past, those different species of Aliens Kenner came up with are back! Here's a custom Scorpion Alien done in a Kenner-themed look using a NECA Prometheus pressure suit Engineer body with the head, lower arms, feet, shoulder/back tubes, spine, and tail of a NECA Xeno Warrior grafted on. The ridged head crest was created using Aves Apoxie Sculpt and additional sculpt was also added to blend the parts together. The Engineer's sculpt is so close to the Alien design it allows for a beefier, taller body style. Spikes were added to the body and since the Trilobite 2-pack Engineer body was used I turned the burns into battle-damage, homage to the 'exploding' feature the original Kenner toy had. The acid spurts were made from high-temp hot glue put through a low-temp glue gun and the figure was given the copper-gold highlights. Now this custom Scorpion Alien is ready to take on some Colonial Marines!
