Always wanted a Machiko figure for my collection but wouldn't pay hot toys price, so I made my own. I only read the novels, never the comics so I have no image to emulate, this is my own take on her appearance. Made from a neca Lara Croft base, I had to cut off and realign her feet so she could stand and removed her hair and various accessories. She has classic predator gauntlets, wolf predator plasma caster, shin guards and thigh plates, scout predator cloth, necklace and shoulder armor, a customized kenner renegade mask which is not removable, her breast plate is made from three different armor pieces, two from scout, one from battle borg. Dreads from a battle borg predator head, each lock individually placed onto her head, one by one. Her gauntlets are a bit bulky but I figured they should be. I wanted to maintain a blend of human and predator features in her design, she's a bit more clothed than the average predator, maintains human footwear, carries normal grenades, and though she has a plasma caster, also uses a "hand burner", a weapon design she is more familiar with. I thought the GOW boltok pistol had kind of a "pred-tech" look to it and is quite large in her hand, the knife in her boot came from the same locust drone. She stands to proper scale with my other predators and is one of my favorite pieces.
