I was like a lot of folks and missed out on DCUC wave 5 the first time around. All I could find was the Riddler with Metallos torso. I was crusin through Kmart some months ago a saw a Fox Sports Robot on sale for $10 and decided to grab it. I then put 2 and 2 together and decided to bash'um together. I pretty much had to hack through the robot to get the arms and legs. I was kinda bittersweet to do because it is a nicely made figure. After I got the arms and legs out, I had to bulk up the shoulder pegs with F4 tape( a self adhesive silicone tape that sticks only to itself) and slim/sand the leg pegs to fit in the torso. I did a base coat of Krylon Fusion silver and GW paints for the accents. I think it came out ok for it being my second custom ever.

Man that is Cool!! I have seen those Fox Sport robots at the K-Mart here as well and thought they looked like pretty solid figures(although I don't think they are $10). You managed to meld the two together perfectly. I have seen pics of the official Metallo and I agree that your is definitely better. Great Job!!
