Sentinel Drones Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:44269  
Name:Sentinel Drones
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Universe
Creator:GDX  
Date Added:November 12, 2012
Base Figure:Marvel Universe Classic Iron Man
Height:3.75 inches
If you collect Marvel Universe figures like I do, you know the utter frustration with and disdain for the classic Iron Man figure Hasbro seems to LOVE putting in multi figure packs. Over the course of my collecting MU, I've gotten quite a few of these in my collection, and unfortunately the figure doesn't lend itself well to customs. This is a figure no one wants, so I had no choice but to find something to do with it. Classic style Sentinels seem to be a decent idea. I've always liked the idea of human-sized Sentinels to hunt and battle mutants in smaller/confined areas. I added custom sculpting for boots and cuffs on the arms as well as sculpting on the head to make them look more Sentinel like. Initially, I wanted to give them fresh and shiny paint jobs, but I thought a more scuffed up look would fit.

VERY cool! I also have a bunch of those "needs a sandwitch" IM figures nad now I have an idea on how to make them cool!
Great idea and your execution is awesome- they look really beat!

I love the worn paint apps! Gives the Sentinels a more realistic feel

Yeah, I thought that going with a beat up/scuffed up paint job would make more sense as these guys would be more closely involved with hunting mutants and most likely to get all beaten up.

Great concept, custom and great use of a mediocre figure.
This also makes it easy to build an army of sentinels.

Yeah, 'cause as much as I'd like to THINK Hasbro's done sticking us with them, I bet there's going to be a few more packs with him in there! Thanks!

thats awesome, I hate that the body can't be used for much, but you found a great use.

Thanks! Now when they stick one of these crappy Iron Man figs in a set I'm not like "Aw crap another Iron Man, I'm like, another Sentinel army builder!"
