Hello dear realmers, this is my version of Lobo "the main man"!

He comes with a painted "Despero Gun" plus gunfire, a knife with removable knifeholder, his hook (sculpted) atached to a chain, a sulpted glowing cigar and removable jacket with a sulpted detail on the collar and sculpted biker logo on the back!

Now he is ready to rock and kick some serious DC underpants from the backside :-D !!!!
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The body base was a Sota Street Fighter Birdie. I had to cut/ripp the jacket of his body, and fill out the holes in his chest with Apoxie. His head came of and I am still thinking where I will use it in the future because it is very eehhmm ... special ;-) .

Cut & dremmeled down the metall cuffs around his wrists, to look like normal arms. Dremmeled his shoulder joints to have less/no paintrub. Sanded down his shoulders from inside as well for that reason.

When I came to his legs there were several problems. The Birdie figure can´t stand straight because of the way they did the knee joints and the lower leg joints ... and his feet look like those of Bozo the clown ... soooo ...

... I carved out the space for the joints for the knees in the upper and lower legs with an exacto knive, to give him a straight leg posability.

Feets were exchanged by ML Bishops boots. Kneepads are from an older crap Lobo figure and biker leg protectors were sulpted as well as the spikes for the boots.

Everything was painted in black and white and I gave his upper body a washing with a blackish grey for detail. His boots, protectors and chain get a drybush with iron metallic for detail as well.

First I wanted to use a Blanka head, but when I saw Bishops face it was clear to me that he will get the Kiss-treatment.
I prefered to have a little more human looking face, Blanka would be to animalistic.
After getting rid of the beard I sulpted some extra hair in his existing hair to make it look more full.
Gave him the typical makeup, gave him some facial hair as well and his red eyes.

Birdies jaket deserved a lot of treatment, from washing it with paitremover to make the colour stick finally to sculpting motorbike side collars and a logo on the back that says fragging b#####d (pardon my french) together with a skull.
Last but not least I cut it open at both sides (from down the armholes) and attach fodder plastic buckels with super glue from both sides of the cut, soooo now ...
... the jacket can be taken of anny time You like to have Your main man show the ladies what he´s working with!

Gave him also a cigar that he can smoke whenever he gets reborn out of his own cells ... pheeewww ... done!
