Custom #:4454  
Name:Helghast Soldier from Killzone
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Misc
Creator:Jin Saotome  
Date Added:October 16, 2007
Base Figure:Sigma 6 'Shockwave Black Ops'
Height:8.00 inches
Let me first say that I've never played Killzone but was extremely impressed with the super-reaslistic trailer I saw at the E3. Killzone 2 is coming out next year and yes I'm picking it up! That being said I hope I did the game justice in bringing this figure to live. Don't scream at me if I missed something, I don't even know if this matches Killzone 1 or 2's Helghast, lol! After taking these photos I sat back and did a few double-takes. Not because of anything wrong, but how even tho I had no idea what the character was about I loved the final look! This may look like a 1/6th scale figure but it's only 8" tall! The base figure was a Sigma 6 'Shockwave black ops' body with a Sigma 6 Iron Grenadier head and hands. I resculpted the face portion of the Iron Grenadier to match the Helghast face but afterwards decided that he needed more than just painted on eyes.

That's where I got a little creative. I drilled the old eyes out and replaced them with clear plastic rod sections I got from a Xevoz Hyperfury staff accessory. The staff was already a clear orange and it works for the eyes when they're not lit up. Yes, they really do light up! Dilling out up under the faceplate I put an orange LED in there and glued the wires back under his helmet rim so they came out the back leading to the battery pack on his back. You can depress the button and his eyes light up bright orange or slip a small piece of metal lever in the battery pack to keep them on all the time.

Everything else was paint work.. lots and lots of it. For his jumpsuit a basic dark gray was laid down with a dirty black wash, some brown, highlights of gray, then gunmetal for the armor. I did a muddy brown splatter on the boots/underside then decided to go all out, giving him a blood-splatter to his left side as if he had just gunned someone down. His Helghast Rifle was made from a Frontmission 3 shotgun and various random parts cut and glued on to make it resemble the gun in the game as close as I could get it. The two sides of the flag were printed out on Photoshop and given a texture-filter so it looked a little like material. I tattered the edges then glued it to aluminum piping. It's huge, a foot tall by eight inches long! So there you have it, one Helghast Soldier from the game Killzone! Light up eyes rule... hehehe...

Hmm, you've made an awesome 8" version of Master Chief from Halo with a Sigma 6 figure,
and an awesome 8" version of a Helghast from Killzone, which was intended to be Sony's Halo, from a Sigma 6
Any chance on an awesome 8" version of Samus Aran from Metroid Prime, since that is somewhat coinsidered to be Nintendo's Halo, despite the Metroid games being around since the 80s?
Cause there are many similarities between the three
All are armored, each is on a different one of the big 3's consoles, all are from 1st person sci-fi/shooter games
So you'd need to do a Samus now to complete the trio.

Hey, thanks guys! I really enjoyed making this guy and making a mess with paint splatters, hah! The eyes are my favorite part as they took me a while to get just right. Glad you all like em.

I always thought that the Iron Grenadier looked a little like the Helghast, very cool and who cares if it accurate, as long as it looks good.

This is one BADAZZZZ custom. Like you, I haven't played the game, but that doesn't matter when it comes to a custom as cool as this. What's really great about this figure is that even though you used a Sigma Six platform, it is very cleverly disguised. I generally do not like the S-6 line for custom use as they are too cartoony and anatomically disproportionate, but you have convinced me that there are definitely possibilities with them! It kind of reminds me of Jin-Roh of the Wolf Brigade. Love the eyes, the paint, and the overall look of this figure. This is a very cleanly done job, great use of accessories as well! This is an all around AWESOME custom!

Very very cool! These guys also remind me of the soldiers from the anime Jin Rho.

Wow great work Jin especially the LED work
I'm not one to make things 100% accurate so I don't mind an inconssitences this may have with the game version
This is a custom and its the same to me as impressionist painting - you deliver a strong bold image that anyone can instantly recognise as a helghast
its only the nitpickers that'll give you crud about not 100% accuracy
And no snake I wasn't talking about you lol
