Evening people, another one to enter "The Collection" here's the heroic water blasting firefighter Snout spout, I don't know a huge lot about this character and I don't really remember him from the cartoon but after reading up on him it seems he only appeared in three episodes of She-Ra Princess of power. That makes sense as I didn't really follow that show at the time. Anyway he's cool so I had to make him, I mean why wouldn't you like a giant elephant robot man?? Anyhoo, here's the recipe.

Recipe:
Head = 200x staction Snout spout, added tusks a la Madtinker because every male elephant needs tusks.

Body = DCUC orange Lantern Lex Luthor.

Arms = DCUC Orange Lantern Lex Luthor.

Hands = 200x staction Snout spout.

Chest piece = 200x staction Snout spout, sculpted parts.

Legs = DCUC Orange Lantern Lex Luthor.

Feet = Toe off 200x staction Snout spout, sculpted parts.

Backpack = 200x Staction Snout Spout.

Axe and Spanner = 200x staction Snout spout.

Painted and sealed with Games Workshop products.

So yeah, great to get another ticked off the list, I'm gonna go work on one of my favourite video game characters now, I just know the Tattoos and pant detail are gonna be a pain but that's all I'm gonna say, till next time........

Great work, this looks really cool. I love how you break it down (blueprint).
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Thanks mate, it's something I started doing since a none customizer friend of mine said they're easier to follow than a recipe and it gave him a better appreciation of the parts I use.

Badass 5000!

Cheers dude

Most excellent. I always liked this character - along with most 200X designs, and thought that he deserved an articulated action figure worthy of that head sculpt and this looks to be it.
Nice job!

Me too, the 200x designs are amazing to work with, packed with detail and yeah the sculpts are divine it's just the lack of articulation that started me off on my mission. Thanks for the comment

over the top SICK man! Bravo!
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Cheers dude, I appreciate your thoughts and taking the time to post them

I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS MASTERPIECE!!!! WOW, BRO!!! WOW!!! Genius use of the Orange Lantern Lex figure!!! The paints are exquisite!
How easy or difficult was it to remove the parts from the staction figure? I understand those staction figures can be difficult to pull apart.
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Cheers dude, he suffered from long stays in the wip graveyard, I'm happy to have him done . Some parts are harder to pull apart than others, like the legs are separate moulded pieces so with a little force you can just pull them apart, it's when you need to take a certain piece like the toes I used. The plastic is pretty nasty to work with, it's a black thick plastic and has little white specks throughout that snag the dremmel quite regular and it makes a real mess. This one wasn't half as bad as Clawful though and I just Know Randor is gonna be a real PITA, he's made from some sort of stone I believe.
NeCrollector - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Wow! Well, I admire and salute your determination, bro! I remember how much of a fight Clawful gave ya. You're my hero, dude!
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Amazing combination bro , really like how he looks now , so much more heroic , Very , Very Cool!!!!
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Thanks man, I feel the tusks add a lot to him, I mean why make a robot elephant without tusks??
Bacchus - Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Very cool!
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Thanks dude, appreciated
VicVeinz - Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Amazing how you were able to find use for that Luthor base..excellent!!
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Thanks dude, I actually bought the base specifically for this custom, not many DCUC robots about so not a great deal of choice really.
Carnivac - Tuesday, May 20, 2014
You actually made him look awesome. Kudos!
Darththomas - Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Thanks man, he deserved so much more than that staction they gave him.
