How can you customize the HML Xorn?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I was wondering on how you can make Xorn better. Should I sculpt some for wires and chains? Repaint? Well if you guys have an idea please post. Xorn isn't going anywhere

Just an update. I made interchangable heads. A black one with speckles of white to represent the blackhole. I used the gundam ball joints for the neck joint so it is easier to change. Magneto still has his removable helmet too, so it's like a three way head. I sculpted him so he looks battle damaged. I don't know what his arms look like underneath his shirt so I just left the arms the same with the jacket torn up.

I had an idea. I was thinking what it would look like if he took off his helmet. I was thinking of painting the Magneto head blue(or black) with speckles of white to represent the black hole. Or I could just make the head so it can be removable and the black hole can represent nothing. I'm not sure.

By the way I got an update. I got the "key" already. I just cut half of a lightsaber and glued it on. Deadeye can you tell me how long the chain is? And how should the trade be? Me ship to Boba ship to you. Then you ship to Boba ship to me?

Or use the head off tiny screw that has an X already cut into it

That's a Motorcycle ignition...believe me I know one of those when I see it! You can get micro chain all over on eBay pretty much dirt cheap if you don't want real precious metal. As for making the fob, I recommend letting the apoxie sculpt cure then carve out the design (carefully!) with exactos or dental pics. Trying to sculpt that tiny X will stick to everything until it's cured.

The key in his collar is probably to keep his helm on. What with it supposedly containing a star, you don't really want it to come off by accident...

seee? would help if yu shown me the pic now wouldn't it?

Lol

OK Pyro hoses could be used for those - or sculpted cylinders on a twist tie?
You could even use those bead necklace kits you can pick up in dime stores
Or use tiny bits of uncooked spaghetti threaded on some fuse wire with some sculpting?

Chains - probably from a neckchain - you can pick cheap ones up in most dollar stores

You can make up the Yellow X's as stickers on your PC cut them out and stick em on the fig

I don't know why he has a key in his neck but it looks cool. Does anyone know how to make something like that. Not a key exactly but the key chain that can hang from his neck "vein"

yeah, but I still want him to be Xorn. I liked the one Jin did but I have no street fighter Gen. And I don't have an Iceman or any strong Magnets I can use. So... . I was thinking on making these wires near his neck and maybe repaint his jacket to that color. because the jacket he has now has a yellow "X" on it.

how do you customise Xorn better?

sneak up on him when he aint lokking


Seriously you could do something cool with this figure

You want to turn him into someone else?

How about a robotic red skull?

Make use of the crazy mask

Jin did a really cool xorn with a chinese outfir from a SOTA GEN character
