Inspired by Uncanny X-Men #281, I've always wanted to make this villainous band of cyborgs. As my first attempt at customizing I probably shouldn't have tackled the whole group at the same time, but I have enjoyed it.
Sculpey for the helmet and forearms, using a small flat head screwdriver for details. I carved and added some wiring to the forearms to make him more "robotic" looking.
Who doesn't fear red illuminating eyes!? I wanted to make them light up, but everything I found on the topic was with larger figures (more work space in the body cavity) :-P
So what I ended up doing was drilling out the back of the head and used a smaller drill bit to make the eyes holes.
Then I cut clear plastic from an empty hair gel bottle and placed the pieces in front (visor), on the top, and back of the head. Coloring the top and back "windows" with a red dry board marker. Happy with results, I'll save using LEDs for a future project. ;-) (Thanks Jason for the idea!)
Complete repaint and dry brush technique using Hobby Lobby water-based paints. Then clear coat Matte-finish spray paint to protect and give it a more "new figure look".
I hope you enjoy! Thank you!
