I always loved the xmen 2099 cards and comics, I thought I could do some justice to a great character.
I sculpted the shoulder flares, gaunlets, and leg strap from 2 part kneadatite greenstuff putty. The head from gambit was a minty choice for this figure. I repainted it so that it would have a unique look, it actually looks EXACTLY like Charlie sheen, hahahaha!!! I am really proud of the paint job I did here. I used echanted blue, necron abyss, asmurian blue wash, blood red, chaos black, shining gold, snakebite leather, and bronzed flesh (orig citadel colors). This figure is a rub free figure. I used sharpie paint pens on the joints after sanding, I find that this works better than anything I have tried. I just order 35 pens, so they have come in handy. I really hope you guys like this figure!!

Lol, I hear ya. I've run into the same kind of thing in my fodderbox. Can't wait to see some more 2099 members from you!

Nah, I think it looks great. I've done a skull fire from x-men 2099, and meanstreak was also requested in time. You never know maybe you'll see my rendition in the future.

thanks man, ya I definately plan on doing the entire line of 2099 figures. I've been meaning to tackle it for a while. I hear what ur saying about wonderman, however I checked out the other 15 body types that I had in my fodderbox and this one worked great. there was an easy way out, and that was customizing an angel toy (deadpool body) but the shoulders seemed lame. I should have shown some pics with him against other figs. I was also basing this mainly off the new drawings, and the marvel masterpiece card series. thanks again!

It's very cool to see some of the 2099 X-Men getting some love. I really dig this custom, hands down the best Meanstreak custom I've seen. My only critique is the choice of base figure, Wonderman just seems too beefy to use as the body on a Speedster. That's just me though. Good work, are you planning on doing anyone else from the team?
