Doom once devised a time machine that transported ol Shell head and himself back to the Camelot days. On another expedition, Doom made a trip to the future, in another dimension while rematerializing, and brought back a Doombot with advanced technology. It was no Terminator, but sure did have hell of a lot of gung-ho!
Converting a Spider-man Beetle figure, some minor sculpt work was done to make the armor more robotic looking. For the abs section, wanted to create a network of wires and machine parts, so opened up a regular calculator and found a flexible grid sheet that was cut to fit the abdominal and back area. The sheet had these computer-looking lines on it that was perfect for that cyborg look. The detachable jet-glider came from a Japanese toy figure accessory - some modifications were made to allow the wings to fold and its been re-painted to appear more mechanical.
This Doombot was made the way Doom would've wanted his robots, which means armed to the teeth with supernatural fire power! Equipped with a satellite laser cannon that pivots and a mutagenic weapon of mass destruction, these parts were originally from a Voltron toy and have been modified to fit easily on the back. All parts have been repainted using acrylic and metallic colors. The head originally came from the mask of a Riddick Lord Marshall figure and it's been resculpted into Doom's likeness. The jaw was extended and modified to allow the anti-matter missile (built from scratch) to fit inside and appear as though it's launching from its mouth. This figure is an original design and was tremendously fun to build.
Thanks for checking it out!

Great effects on this one dude- even the exploding cigar The wings are my favourite. You can't even tell its a Beetle base!
