Once DCC released the Arkham Origins Firefly figure I decided I had to do something new with my custom Firefly.
Firebug was a late 1970s villain with a very similar motif to the older Firefly. They were both arsonists except that while Firefly was a genuine pyromaniac, Firebug wanted to destroy badly maintained or constructed buildings that had been instrumental in the deaths of several of his family members. In the comics he just wears a flame-themed costume but i decided to update it a bit.
- War Machine (upper body)
- Marvel Selects Black costume Spider-Man (legs and head)
- DCD MR Freeze (backpack/tank)
- removed the War Machine legs and replaced them with the Spider-Man legs so that the figure would not look 100% robotic
- I repainted the armor to reflect the original character's design
- repainted and hot-glued the head on
- I removed the backpack from Mr Freeze, repainted, attached it to the back of the figure, and hot-glued the gauntlet hoses onto it
It took forever to paint the figure--especially the different shades of yellow. But overall I like how it came out
