So giusti approached me with a picture of the awesome Sideshow Rhino statue a while back and pretty much challenged me to make a figure similar to the look of that Rhino. I absolutely loved the statue and concept, it looks as if a Rhino Venom like Symbiote is taking over Aleksei's body. SO here is the challenge I gladly accepted and it was a ton of fun:
Body Sota Zangief
Head-Juggernaut head cast from Meltdown customs
Shaved down the Juggy head quite a bit and sculpted it in to a Rhino head with a large extended neck to stick out. Figure took a ton of modding and surgery to get the parts to all fit together. I sculpted all the Rhino details from head to toe and built up the muscles and traps quite a bit to get that hunched Rhinoceraus look. Anything that doesn't look like the base figure is resculpted. The ears are removeable by magnet and can be replaced with a non-ear piece just like the sideshow piece with the alternate non-eared head. Primed and airbrushed in dark black/grays, then drybrushed the lighter gray over to bring the sculptwork out.
Hope you all enjoy and thank you for looking as always.
