Base Figure:Super Patriot Variant
Height:6.00 inches
I've always been a huge fan of the "Steampunk" genre. That is, mixing the turn of the century style (the last century) with modern technology. A hi-tech low-tech hybrid.

I was excited for this contest because I could bring out one of my old role playing characters the Bionic Cowboy. This character was such fun, my friends and I even wrote up a role playing module around his version of the old west.

It was a world that mixed cyber-technology and gunslinging. A place where any Joe with two bits and a piece could be fitted for a DrawMaster 5000(TM) arm and try his luck as the west's newest outlaw. A place where steam technology met 200 MPH bullet trains.

Lots of fun!

----------------------------------

The base figure is a Super Patriot variant. The left arm is replaced with the the arm from a regular Super Patriot.
Gloves are courtesy of FO Jigsaw.
The coat is from an MGS Revolver Ocelot, I think.
Gun belt and guns are from a Spawn fig.
Hat is donated from a Movie GR Scarecrow.

The chaps are actual leather with ports drilled in to allow for the steam vents.
The neckerchief is real cloth.

The figure sports at least 4 varieties of leather paint, plus several metallics including antique gold and brass to get that old world feel. The head connections are done in copper.

Hope you enjoy!!

very cool figure, I like it a lot but was torn by the whole bionic thing but one more glance at the brilliant work put that to the back of my mind, so as far as I'm concerned he can be steam powered for all I care!
lovely stuff
