Continuing from where I left off with my updated Kenner Sgt. Apone custom, I wanted to tackle the Colonial Marine Drake next. I still have a soft spot for the old Kenner Aliens toy line, which is why I'm having such a blast updating the designs. Drake was made with a NECA Predator Dutch for the body, the head and hands from a Diamond Select Expendables 2 Gunnar Jensen, and lots of fodder. I gave the head a headband and sculpted some hair falling over it, and used some McFarlane Techno Spawn parts for the headset. The bullet straps come from a McFarlane Al Simmons with some pieces of fodder attached. The real star of this custom though, is the Smart Gun. I wanted it to be inspired by the Kenner Smart Gun accessory, but also put in some personal touches to make it look even more intimidating. This thing is made from so many different pieces, I can't even remember them all. I just dug through my fodder bins and got pieces that I thought would fit to make a giant gun. It also has an articulated stabilizing arm (just like in the movie) that attaches to his bandolier strap. One Kenner accurate paint job later, and now Drake is ready to join Sgt. Apone to stomp some bugs!
