Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: Arnim Zola (with an actual working chest).


I have been wanting to make this figure for at least a year now, and last year, me and some fwooshers batted around the idea of using a camera phone to make a working Zola. then someone suggested using a digital picture viewer.


well, I sorta put Zola on the back burners for a while, and started up school and stuff. but I still had the Zola itch, and had to make him. I REALLY wanted him to have a real working Camera, but whatever, the lightup chest was cool enough, I guess.

SO, I had to find a digital picture viewer. I hunted up and down, looked everywhere, and finally, I found one at Toys R Us. the Dora the Explorer Digital Photo Viewer was perfect. and it was even purple. BUT, it was also 20 bucks, and I HAD found SOME viewers for 15. so I waited.

then I got paid one day, and dropped back into Toys R Us, and wouldn't you know it, the viewers were on sale! 15 bucks! SNAG.

He can change his faces. I have it set to where he changes his faces every second, but it can go up to 30 seconds. he is on a timer to go off after 15 minutes (it can go up to 30 minutes).

his photos are uploaded through a USB port under his left armpit (the arm must be removed to do this) this is also how one charges him up. his settings buttons are located under his right armpit.

Zola is:

Arms, chest (heavily modified), crotch: Hydra Goon
wrists: ML15 Thorbuster Iron Man
hands: ML12 Bishop
legs, feet: SMC Scorpion
rest: Fodder and Fun Foam.

the camera head is made from ML14 Mojo tail, rubber bands, wire, a sequin, and some other fodder. whats cool is that when you look REAL hard, you can see your reflection in the lens.

anyway, enough. Enjoy the figure!

great job.. another great combination of not only various figures but using non action figure items to produce a stand out custom.

I love your use of the mini-photo viewer in this.
I'm just waiting for someone to create a batcave diorama that uses a cheap LCD photo frame as the Batcomputer's screen now....
