Hey there!! So X-Fan#1 beat me to the punch--and I loved his Magneto, but as many of you know, Magneto is my favorite villain, so there was NO WAY I wasn't making this guy!

Took an Apollo and basically chopped off some stuff, then sculpted with Aves onto his torso to create the smooth pattern of the suit. Sculpted the elbow and knee pads, and sculpted that helmet. Kudos to Matt Hancock for a tip using plastic wrap (instead of aluminum foil) to surround the figure head when sculpting the helmet--it worked much better. I had to go back and fill the helmet in a bit from the inside, as I sculpted it thin to fit close to the face.

I used cloth for the jump straps, and a LOTR buckle for the center clasp. The other clasps on the straps are cut up pieces of a Wolverine claw. One of his hands was swapped from a SOTA Street Fighter figure.

Critiques welcome!

hiya, Fitz! excuse me. don´t mean to be a nuisance, but, could you tell me which apollo figure you used? been searching on a website and there´s one with a blue uniform, which came in a 2 pack and also another one with a kind of khaki suit. Not sure which one to buy, to try to replicate your awesome recipe, if you don´t mind..thanks in advance! -ringo-

What's up man!? Not a bother at all. I bought the Apollo loose at local toy collector store. He was in a olive green fatigues-like suit with pockets on his chest. Hope that helps! Take care! -Fitz
