This one's for our beloved Xysma the Warhorse! He's a hardcore Red Skull collector and I wanted to do something special, yet different for him. Based on his appearance in Captain America, Volume 3, Issue 15, I give you Red Skull Supreme! He conjures up a gold armor for himself after acquiring the Cosmic Cube.
I took a Raven Spawn and modified his head a bit. I removed his cape and filled in 3 cavities on his back (that were glued to the cape) with Aves Apoxie. Gave him a complete repaint.
Being that the figure is basically more of a statue (with limited articulation), I wanted to give this Red Skull different display options:
-Loincloth is removable. It attaches at the back with 2 magnets.
-Both closed hand & open hand (from a movie Spawn) can be attached via magnets.
-Swastika-like weapon was made using blister packaging and a piece from a fodder weapon.
-Swastika-like base is from an X-Men base.
-The red victim's skull, one blue glass cube bead (Cosmic Cube), one black glass cube bead (Cosmic Cube) & one round energy ball can attach to the open hand via magnets.
-I included another blue glass cube bead and black glass cube bead that can 'poke' into the palm of his open hand to simulate the Cosmic Cube as levitating.
Since Red Skull is portrayed as a Nazi agent in the comic books (prior to Hydra), I wanted to stay true to that evil persona of his. This is why I decided to go with the swastika detailing. In no way do I mean to offend anybody and I truly apologize if I do.
I've included a pic of Red Skull with the awesome Green Lantern Grazzka masterpiece that Xysma so graciously honored me with. Thanks again, brother. I sincerely hope you like my twisted take on Red Skull. It would be an honor to see him in your epic Red Skull collection.
Thanks for looking, my friends.
