For anyone that doesn't know Top Knot (Tichinde), he was one of the most popular characters in the Dark Horse Alien vs Predator comic series. He was second in command to Broken Tusk (Dachande), and when Broken Tusk was killed, he became the clan leader. His ways of leading were very different than Broken Tusk's, as he and his clan always hunted humans during alien hunts because of his personal disdain for human beings.

My first version of Top Knot was done a while back but as I've gotten a little better at painting, I wanted to paint him more like a movie style version. I personally think fixing the skin was a must do after taking part in painting the lost tribe members.

Aside from fixing his skin, I also added a McFarlane classic Predator trophy necklace, repainted his dread rings, and added a second cannon power pack on his back instead of the medi kit.

Hope you guys like him.

I created it myself. I'm no sculptor, but I drew it out on paper, then cut the paper out and outlined it onto some craft foam, and then cut the foam and put it onto the figure. Thanks for the compliments.
