Another one rescued from the WIP Graveyard. This one entered the graveyard because I glued his legs stuck, tried to fix them and wound up making them un-salvageable in the process. I didn't much feel like shelling out for another ironman but then i spotted some kind soul was giving a fodder condition one away for free so I snapped him up and started work again. I still ran into a few problems along the way these HOM figures seem really brittle to me. I just kept breaking him but I got there in the end. Sadly this is probably going to be my last MOTU for some time, got some serious work to do but ho hum, there will always be more eventually. Soooo here's the recipe.
Head = 200X Sy-Klone, dremmel to fit and attached via magnet (I broke the neck peg).
Torso=HOM ironman, Dremmel down chest hologram piece off 200X Sy-Klone and sculpted to blend.
Arms = HOM Ironman, dremmel down 200X Sy-Klone hands and wrist rings to fit, sculpt to blend. One hand held on by a magnet (once again, i broke it) and the other hand has a magnet in to hold the shield in place (broke the shield handle, you see a pattern forming?). I also took the torso / shoulder articulation thing out and stuck it further out so his arms sit in a more natural position.
Shoulder rings = 200X Sy-Klone.
Back ring = 200X Sy-Klone, dremmel down mounting from 200X Sy-Klone and sculpt to blend.
lower torso = HOM Ironman, removed wings and added hip discs from a modern ironman to cover the holes.
Belt Buckle = 200X Sy-Klone, dremmel to fit.
Legs = HOM Ironman, fixed floppy legs.
Calf rings = 200X Sy-Klone.
Feet = Some TNA wrestler not sure who, sculpted toes to be more square.
Shield = 200X Sy-Klone, screw installed to stick to magnet in hand.
Filled all peg holes, panted and sealed with Games workshop and Vallejo products.
Got to give partial credit for this recipe to Cosmic fantasy as it was his wip thread where i first saw the HOM ironamn and thought perfect for Sy-Klone, turned out Cosmic had already had thye idea, guess i just beat him to it but thanks good buddy. Tried to get pictures showing the two different angles of his hologram but the pictures of the other version came out a bit cruddy but it does still work.
As always thanks for taking the time to have a glance at my work. More from the superhero universe on the way soon. Till next time........
