After seeing the costume designs for Man of Steel coming up, I noticed that Zod's armor is very reminiscent of H.R. Giger's work. Of course, I immediately wanted to see how bad ass I could make a Brainiac in a similar style.
I had bought that Prometheus 2-pack a while back, wanting to use the tentacles for a future custom (keep yer eyes peeled kiddies!). This one ended up being a REAL Frankenstein mix of parts:
I used the Engineer body, and cut up the skirt from a Stargate figure. I also used the head from a Dc Direct JUSTICE Lex Luthor, and used round jewelry chain links to make the 'plugs' on Brainiac's head.
Backpack is made up of Spawn parts and DC Collectibles Mr. Freeze, and the posable 'utility arms' on his back came from a Matrix Sentinel. The bionic arm and boots came from a Neca Bionic Commando figure, while the claw and extendable tentacle came from a Spider-Man 2 Movie Doc Ock. Oh, and his right fore-arm & hand came from a Neca Bulletstorm figure. Electricity blast comes from a FF movie Dr Doom.

Thanks for looking!!
