His name: KOVUL PRIME
1) the head: I've always wanted to use a Pitt head on a custom, but getting it to fit was a task at hand. So I cut both Pitt and Arkillo heads in half and glued them together. I also sliced the mouth so it will be slightly opened for a more dramatic look. With a couple of slices of clear tubing and triangle cut plastic for a figure bubble packaging nearly completes it. Both will be painted-ever paint em before? A real pain in the caboose! I am going to build up the eyebrows and complete the merger of the to heads. Down side: yes the head is a bit large but I was going for that. Why the triangles? That's a really good question and I'm so glad you asked. Ears are rather hard to build and I needed something to offset the size of the head and this is what I came up with. They also help channel his Psionic abilities for one powerful mind blast! Not only is Kovul Prime a distance fighter, but a hands on bone crushing fighter too!
2) I believe the tentacles are from a Independence Day figure
3) Yes, those are claws from BAF Onlslaught hands. I loved the 3 figure look, but wasn't aggressive enough for my taste. The claws really changes the look of em!
Probelm: sure I can make one cool looking Yellow Lantern Corps member-I can switch out the lower arms and give him some unique looking yellow boots. BUT is this the custom parts beyond that? Aren't the Yellow Lantern Corps old news? Should this figure be it's own character? I have gone back and forth on the next step to take this custom and I am not looking to take the easy way out, cause either way is going to be the some work. A custom always comes to that cross roads, to be a custom or a AWESOME custom. I think this has the potential of being at least a really good one. I really hope to get several ideas where to go with this custom.
I can see a lot of lookers, but no feedback. Give me a thumbs up or down...or scrape that piece of crap! Even say, hey, that looks like ????? you can take this figure that direction! SOMETHING please! Vote: keep a yellow lantern or too cool looking -make him your own character.
I know some customizers here don't want to interfere by adding their input, but isn't that one of the reason we've come together here? To share words of wisdom?
