Hobgoblin – not to be confused with the Hobgoblin from the Spiderman comics is from a race a shapeshifters. This changeling has the ability to alter his appearance into any human or non-human form. He is an important member of the Shi’ar Imperial Guard.

The figure started out as an X-men Gambit and with the removal of the waistband and upper chest band, the shapeshifting was already underway. Kept the boots as they provided some interest to the figure. Sculpted new chest, waist, shoulder flaps and head. Originally was going to use a cut up paperclip with some sculpt for the antennas but they wouldn’t stay, so copied fastfreddie’s approach in using pushpins. Painted head to toe, added the jewels (as did fastfreddie) around the neck and sealed in matte finish.

ff, yeah, family jewels... lol. They are real. I pulled all my savings out of my Swiss bank account to make this custom. j/k of course. They were at Micahels's in the beads and jewelry area. I felt kinda like a wierdo/pervert in that section next to the little girl buying some beads.
The eyes came out really bizarre I think, I was going to white them out as in the reference pic, but thought they came out so strange I would keep them.
Also around the collar I saw some reference pics with black and others with just the green. Do you have any idea which is correct? I just did it without simply because I was getting tired of that figure and was feeling a bit lazy.
