A lot of us are used to the classic Bishop blue & yellow duds. However, when I read the X-Force Messiah War Story Arc, Lucas Bishop was sporting a more simpler costume, black and white, and a mechanical arm.

The arm apparently served as a power source for his kinetic blasts (guess he got tired of getting shot at first before he could blast back :P). The arm also had a device that could help jam telepaths from accessing Bishop's thoughts, and get this... small mechanical tentacles (sheesh). Which he tried to use on Stryfe, which of course failed miserably.

I took Colossus' right arm and sculpted away. Took a bit of creative liberty here to make it look "techno-organic".

I used Warpath's torso and added a neck joint so he could look up and down.
Cable's belt gave me the pouches and I scuplted a new buckle for the X logo.

I did a combo of matte and gloss paints, suffered much on the white trying to get it even, painted the M symbol on Ripcord's face, and viola, we have a Lucas Bishop.

The only nod to his original costume is probably the glove on his left hand. :D

God bless and have a great weekend.

This is really awesome! It always blows my mind when people make customs as good as this in such a small scale. That arm looks KILLER!!! I really like the organic flow to the metal

Thanks Davey, I was supposed to go for the actual comic look of the arm but later decided to have more fun with the design, and this is what happened

Looks very cool bro, that arm came out great. Good work all around. I did something similar to improve my original cable figure on the left arm, will post it soon.

Thanks Ferry-dude. The original Cable is indeed lacking in terms of sculpt for his mech-arm, the musculature is off as well. can't wait to see yor improved Cable.
