You know what I've always hated about Colossus' classic costume? There's only one person in the entire Marvel Universe that number looks good on, and it's Ms. Marvel. I've no clue why Marvel artists decided to put ol' Petey in a girl's outfit, even worse, when Storm was wearing almost the same thing. At least the poor boy got a pair of pants not long ago.
This one's obviously based on his most recent Juggernaut-enhanced look, with some changes here and there. I love the overall look of this costume, but I didn't want to have two Juggies on my shelf, so I've modified it a bit. There's no helmet, so there're no arm bands, either. I've also thrown away the boot cuffs (I like the sleakness of his silhouette without them) and changed the belt from golden to silver. Goes better with the metal skin if you ask me.
He's a Marvel Select Colossus from head to toe, with lots of sculpting on the bare parts. There are also seam lines, even if you can't see them. Surprisingly, the most pleasant part of this custom was paiting the yellow areas, go figure.
No shading on the red parts this time, only gloss varnish. There's a lot of it on the yellow, though, which you can't see because of the crappy photos I had to take with my phone's camera. Will probably update that in a day or two.
