A couple of months ago, Windblock2002, Madtinker76 and myself all made our own interpretation of the MOTU character Roboto. It was our own "mini contest" to see what each of us would create. The rules are simple, make a particular character any way you want, and all post pics at the same time. It was a lot of fun.

This time round we decided on Rio Blast.

I used a WWE Deluxe figure for the body.
The lower legs and hands are from a Gundam robot. (The fingers are articulated to allow him to hold his guns)
The upper leg armour is from the 200x Rio Blast, as is the badge, shoulder rope and ammo belt.
The Head is a Vintage Rio Blast, I was originally going to use the WWE Jake The Snake head, but wanted to keep a "vintage" feel to the figure.
The right hand is interchangable with the arm cannon. I went with this idea because while I think the arm cannon is cool, I also like the idea of Rio Blast being able to use both his pistols - these are from a Snake Plisken figure.
The rifle is also from a Gundam robot.
