"While growing up in Japan, American Carl Sands learned ninjutsu techniques and became a rather undistinguished industrial saboteur, accepting unremarkable sums to hinder and eliminate his clients' rivals. The Thanagarian criminal Byth then hired Sands to steal Hawkman and Hawkwoman's ship. To help Sands with this job, Byth gave him a Thanagarian belt device and "shadow vest" known as a Dimensiometer, which gave Sands the ability to shift his body into a shadow form. (In the Pre-Crisis version, Sands was given the Dimensiometer in return for inadvertently helping Thar Dan, an alien explorer from the Xarapion dimension.)"

Being not the most difficult paint job, Shadow Thief offered me a nice break from painting emblems and clean lines. He was made using a DCUC Toyman body to take advantage of those freakishly long arms. The hands and head came from a Public Enemies Icicle. The head took some modifying to sit on the body right, but overall I'm happy enough with how he came out. Can never have enough villains in my collection, even if some are...lurking in the shadows!

Thanks for looking!

Really like the use of Toyman, the lean body totally lends itself to the character. Great work.

Thanks. The beauty of this hobby is it seems like almost any character is only a perfect part or two away from possible. Seeing everyone's ideas and unique applications always inspires the imagination.

Terrific! I would have said that character was impossible to sculpt. Glad I'm wrong.
