|Base Figure:||TNA Sting|
Before the movie Spider-man 2, I was not that big of a fan of Dr. Octopus. That pot belly and bowl-cut were pretty unintimidating for a villain. Of course the movie version changed that, bringing him to life like I never imagined possible. Even his tentacles each got a personality! Anyways, this all led up to me wanting to do a pseudo-movie version by taking some elements of classic Doc Ock and streamlining them. I chose a TNA Sting as my base figure (which has ridiculous articulation) with the tentacles from a Spider-man Origins Dr. Octopus. I sculpted the harness on his chest with FIXIT and various fodder. His goggles are actually flat-head screws that are screwed into his skull and then the rest of the goggle is sculpted around it. The figure is a good size and fits in with Marvel Legends figures. On his base his tentacles can reach 12 inches high! His base was made from a ton of fodder and is suppose to be some strange machine he would have built, turned on its side with a chunk missing... no doubt from a previous battle with the webslinger. There are two mounting pegs on the base that fit holes in his boots so he can be attached to the base and posed.
