Hello again guys , I know , I know just how many of these guys he's going to make? , well actually a couple more , so bear with me please , cause I'm having way too much fun , so here we go , During the infamous "War of the Worlds" , writher H.G Wells lost everything his family , his friends and most importantly his beloved newlywed bride , the love of his life , with nothing to live for anymore and in total despair , he simply stands in the middle of the street waiting to be spotted and kill by one of the Martian Tri-pods wrecking havoc and destruction on the city of London , when all the sudden all goes silent , the machines stop dead on their tracks and fall loudly to the ground , suddenly a strangely dressed and tall man wearing a metal helmet stand next to him and offers his hand to help him stand , and whispers in a metallic voice , "If you want her back , If you want them dead , really dead , then take this to Nikola Tesla and built it!" , it was a folded old piece of paper with the plans for some kind of strange machine using the aliens own technology , no sooner did Wells took it than the man was gone , and so the short lived Alien Invasion was ended by something as small and deadly as a common Cold virus , however this was just a scout party , not the whole Martian Armada , that would arrive in 20 years later , 25 with the proper preparations to avoid contamination (the last dying ship manage to send a partial report home , but it took over 10 years to arrive!) , with a new goal , he seeks out Tesla whom in disbelieve tells him back , that this are the plans for a rudimentary TIME MACHINE! , and so H.G. Wells becomes ..."The Legendary Traveler" , a man out of time with all the time in the world , cool right! , WRONG!! , never been able to save anyone or everyone , for any action a reaction , a ripple in time and space , always changing and upgrading his time tech , never belonging to any group and yet one of the founding member of the LXG , having to go by many names to conceal his power and identity as Rocket , The Man of the Future or simply "Rocketman" , he will always be there to lend a hand or to pass on a very important piece of paper to an "Old Friend" . Made from a WWE Undertaker body primed in gray and painted violet as well , head is a ML BAF Iron Monger painted gray and violet too , added a Deluxe Silver power Ranger Armor combined with another alder Ranger armor completely modular and removable , it also can be used as a time chariot , some weapons from the fodder and an insignia from a wrestling belt , finished , really hope you like the latest entry to my "Graymen" series and Thanks , later guys!

Dude...you've got some mad story-telling skills! I'm enjoying your LXG stories...very cool-looking custom!
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Saturday, June 28, 2014
Thanks bro! , if I have these skills is thanks to this great site and your constant encouragement to go on and do my best , incredibly happy you guys are digging my stories and customs , I'll try not to disappoint!

Dude, just keep making these customs and weaving the tales. I, for one, will keep tuning in. Same Bat time, same Bat channel. Great looking custom my friend. P.S., I am also a great fan of both Time Machine movies. The tragedy of the Traveler (Guy Pierce) losing his bride , and then trying to go back and save her over and over again with the same tragic results in the remake made it even more appealing to me. But the first one made in the sixties with Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux, was also heart tugger, when the traveler moved his Time Machine back outside so he could return to the future and try and save her. Priceless.

Wow! , didn't knew there were so many Time Machine fans , really hope I didn't step out of line with my free version , but that the beauty of timeless (sorry) fantasy and sci-fi every generation add a little to it , or sees everything from a fresh and totally different point of view , just adding my 2 cents , my final member will a new version of the enigmatic and charismatic Legendary Captain Nemo and of course the powerful giant Nautilus , my way , just need to find certain things , Thanks for such cool comment my brother!!

First of all, Great STORY! Both Time Machine films the classic and remade one are among my favorites in my movie collection. I liked them very much so to read your take on HG Wells and the time machine was really enjoyable for me. What a tragic character you've created and complex origin. Now the custom, I do like it, there are parts that I would've never thought about mixing together. He sort of looks like one of the classic invading spacemen from the old movies. The time machine is a character as well, cool concept. I would've made a bigger one in the form of a chair just because I think it should be huge like that. Or is that just his rocket pack and not the machine? You put a lot of thought into this, well done.
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Saturday, June 28, 2014
I totally agree that the ORIGINAL Time machine was indeed like a chair , really big , but that was due the fact that technology at the time was in it's infancy , an electricity was just starting to be used ,plus in my story at least they were converting alien devices with human limited knowledge , thus why so big , but as Wells travelled more into the future ,I would be logical he would stream lining at least the earth tech (transistors for circuits , etc.) , aiso the original machine moved in time , but not space , it remained in the same spot ALWAYS , and that was not just inconvenient but dangerous , thus a new system was needed to move in space as well , the rocket mode allows for aerial combat and the chariot mode similar to the chair more accuracy and control when time traveling , there is also another tragic element to the character I forgot to mention , he can't take off the helmet EVER or he would die of old age , it's a part of the machine's chronological field , since he exist along with the machine outside time (remember in one of the movies how his hand age when outside the chair , something like that , he doesn't need to eat , sleep or rest , for him everything is but a single instant , no past , no present ,no future , they are alone from his perspective , sorry for the EXTRA long answer and THANK YOU so much bro!!

Okay with that added explanation and more of his awfully tragic story element, now I'm really more impressed! Thanks.

Love it! Easily my favorite of the group. I am a sucker for a man of mystery who dons a helmet
En-Ryu-Oh!2061 - Saturday, June 28, 2014
When I design him what kept coming to my mind where those rather interesting serials of the 40's (50's?) in BW about the "Rocketmen" , long before the Rocketeer or even Iron Man , there were these guys using metal helmets and rocket packs , that look so cool back then . Thanks for the kind words bro!
HectorHall - Saturday, June 28, 2014
I remember those serials! Great inspiration point, I always thought those were cool
