The fourth Black Lantern to be born on my table, Firestorm!
Obviously used a DCU Firestorm to start with but wanted more than just a repaint. So after browsing around at various pieces of artwork, I really dug the idea of his flames streaking off the Black Lantern emblem on his chest. So I started with sculpting his emblem which more resembles a comet look than the traditional look on the other Black Lanterns. I used the bolts that came off that blue Superman to add flames to the emblem and extra flames to his head to give it a fuller, more menacing appearance. Hands came from the bottom of the fodder bin. Cut away the bottom part of his face and replaced it with Gozer's (Ghostbusters) jaw. Then followed with a repaint of him and the "molecule" accessory he came with.
For an extra added touch, I decided to make a flame base out of an old toybiz Nova figure's hair. I weighted the bottom of it to give the base the extra support it needed for the weight of the figure.
