I always liked Pyro as a character, and although the ToyBiz figure is nice to start with it is kind of lacking in accessories (NO FLAMES!?!?!) and paint details. This was a very simple custom that I decided to do after landing the rest of the Onslaught set to complete my son's BAF. I re-did his flamethrowers by removing the fuel lines from his hands and dremelling out holes in each palm to add revoltech joints. I made the flames using hot glue on figure packaging ties. The flames are fully pose-able and can be removed from the joints and the joints can be removed from the hands. I used DecoArt Lamp Black to do the darker washes and Model Masters acryls Insignia Red and Insignia Yellow for the rest. This was my first experience using the Model Masters, and I did like them. I stole ShartimusPrime's idea and borrowed the base from my Series II Human Torch. Thanks for looking and God Bless!

Nice additions to what I always thought was a good toy. Brought to the next level there. Nice job.

Thanks so much! I also thought it was a great figure. The articulation for the most part is excellent. I tried to do the flamethrowers and flames with that in mind to add even more poseability. He can wield the flames and still be perfectly balanced standing up!

Thanks man, I'm flattered! Shouldn't it look kinda "HOT" though?

Was kind of a "default" custom, but I rolled for a more Liefield original run X-Force type of costume and he goes well with my X-Men setup. I know I must've done well whenever you chime in, thanks for dropping by, Fitz!
