Merge Sentinel JMB-00 Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:16554  
Name:Merge Sentinel JMB-00
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Original
Creator:Merge Sentinel  
Date Added:August 2, 2009
Base Figure:Xevos- Bone Jack
Height:8.00 inches
Finaly gaining some confidence in my meager skills, I decided to construct something that can actually be posed- an articulated monstrosity complete with a right arm movable at 4 points, a left arm movable at one point, a head movable at the neck, and a torso movable at the waist. I also wanted to play with the concept of accessories, so this one has a removable heavy-sword and a light cannon (yes, it works, it fires a very bright green light that is clear in darkness up to at least 30 feet and probably more than that). Plus, I included a fully articulated restriction chain, which looks really cool on it.

To construct this beast, one requires:
- A Xevos Bone Jack Kit
- A Gameboy Advance Snake Light
- A Spawn Warthog
- A Pencil Eraser
- A Robotix Model Kit
- A Chain Bracelet
- A McDonalds Spy Light Toy
- An Unknown Battling Robot Model Kit, presumably Mega Blox

Note that the paint FX were achieved with a toothbrush and a Paintbrush and nothing more.

Background:
Even in the world of "In Defense of Death", some people cannot be saved from the horrors of war, hunger, violence, and age. However, even though they are dead, humans of all walks of like are made of some of the most useful materials alive- living tissues. More maleable, dexterous, and versatile than their metal counterparts, human construction elements are often merged with metal for reintroduction into society as slave labor- the Merge Sentinel. Relegated to do dangerous jobs, Merge Sentinels come in all shapes and sizes, and more often than not are equipped with a live human brain, reprogrammed strictly for servitude. Some are built small and unarmed and act as butlers. Others are outfitted with construction parts and are used for mining, drilling, and demolition. And, of course, some are used in the Military to do what no human could- go into battle with no fear whatsoever of dying. At least, that's what the companies who make them percieve. Little do they know that the human brains they reprogrammed for use sometimes have thoughts a bit too complex to be written off as a programming error...

Thanks! The design aspect is what I really focus on at the moment, until I get better paints, parts, and putties.
