Shiro Yoshida ,aka Sunfire, is Marvel's first hot-headed mutant, both figuratively and literally! He has been a member of the X-Men briefly, leaving because of his arrogance. Since then, he has been both friend and foe of the team, depending on his particular motives that week...
I completed this figure years ago, but have never been completely satified with the results, and periodically tinker with it. Recently, I replaced the belt and lengthened a couple of the chest stripes. Also, I gave it a paintwash and a healthy dose of matte spray to bring out the colours. The recipe for this figure is box set Electro for the hands, torso, and feet. The arms and legs are from the box set Green Goblin, and the head is a Ben Affleck Daredevil. The mask is a piece of vinyl, with temporary earrings cut to fit as eyepieces. The circular headpiece and beltbuckle are plastic. Photos by Nara. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks, emmbro30 and C.P. Customs for the kind words. Like I mentioned, I worked on this figure a long time, trying to get it right. I like the way the paint and matte spray turned out, kinda giving the figure a 'charred' look, like he's been on fire one time too many!
