He's quite obviously inspired by Loose Collectors Scorpion and Sub-Zero. In fact, I didn't really look at any screen shots of Reptile until after I had started, so he ended up with more of Sub-Zeros costume elements than the actual character model has, such as the look of the shin guards and the quilted under armor. With his armor, I went with an asymmetrical look on his arm guards, so he's got a big metal bracer with a tooth design on his left arm, and a kind of tekken glove with more quilted armor on his right. On his shin guards, I sculpted them both identically, and then snapped off a big portion of the right one to make it look like he'd be in a fight or two. One of my favorite aspects of Reptiles design are the teeth on his face mask, so I wanted to make sure to include those. To help push home the reptilian look, I did the alternating black and green squares, cause it really reminded me of a striped snake of some sort. I also left the claws on BPs boots, cause I thought it was fitting. Other than the Reptile themed stuff, the only difference between this ninja and LC's are his elbows, upper arms, and shoulders are from Ninja Strike Wolverine instead of Wonderman, but thats just because thats what I had handy.

Side Note: I also finally got some better pictures of my Ben Reilly Spidey, even if he is just there to be a punching bag.

thanks dude. I was actually thinking of doing Noob Saibot next, depending on how well this guy sells. If he does well, then I'll do Noob, if he doesn't I'll do Scorpion or Sub Zero
heres more pictures
