Before the movie Spider-man 2, I was not that big of a fan of Dr. Octopus. That pot belly and bowl-cut were pretty unintimidating for a villain. Of course the movie version changed that, bringing him to life like I never imagined possible. Even his tentacles each got a personality! Anyways, this all led up to me wanting to do a pseudo-movie version by taking some elements of classic Doc Ock and streamlining them. I chose a TNA Sting as my base figure (which has ridiculous articulation) with the tentacles from a Spider-man Origins Dr. Octopus. I sculpted the harness on his chest with FIXIT and various fodder. His goggles are actually flat-head screws that are screwed into his skull and then the rest of the goggle is sculpted around it. The figure is a good size and fits in with Marvel Legends figures. On his base his tentacles can reach 12 inches high! His base was made from a ton of fodder and is suppose to be some strange machine he would have built, turned on its side with a chunk missing... no doubt from a previous battle with the webslinger. There are two mounting pegs on the base that fit holes in his boots so he can be attached to the base and posed.

nice work, personally I hated the movie doc oc, I grew up with the lardy bowl cut dork version!
this guy looks way cooler than the terrible movie version (I'm sorry, I'm a huge spiderman fan but hated the movies!)
