Simon Utrecht wanted the power of the Fantastic Four. He and 3 friends boarded a rocket headed for outer space, to absorb cosmic rays. Their gambit was successful, each gaining super-powers. Utrecht's power was telekinetic repulsion. Naming himself Vector, he and the U-Foes embarked on a criminal career, fighting the likes of the Hulk and Spider-Man.
I've seen some amazing Vector customs here on the Realm. I wanted to make mine a little different. I wanted his body's power manifestation to look 'alive', like it's in motion over his skin (that was the intention, anyway. Whether it worked or not...). I took an Iceman, added the designs, then primed it black. 100 coats of paint later (!), it was almost done. The ears were too big, so I switched them with fodder ones. This was my first completed U-Foe...
Thanks for looking, feel free to comment.

'til next time,
Chris

emmbro, Necro, and Aiden: Thanks for the kind words.
Freddie and scarecr0w: I definitely remember your figures! They both belong in a museum!
Circean: God bless you, too!
This figure was a time-consumer, and if I could do it over, I would! I primed it black because I wanted the dark areas of the face to look naturally shaded. There was no need for the rest of the body to be dark! Oh well, I learned my lesson for one of the other U-Foes...
