    If any of you guys are Anime fans your know who this is in no time. I based this version of Batou from his appearence in Stand Alone Comlpex. HE started as a Street Fighter Guile figure wit a WWE Rob Van Dame Head modified to resemble the big ole Cyborg. He has 2 sets of hands a removeable chest harness, rocket launcher, and SMG.

    That's totally awesome..
    but now you have me imagining RVD playing Batou in a live action ghost in the shell movie
    and I don't think that's a good thing :p

    They could use Jean Claude van Damme,who in my opinion awfully resembles RVD.

    I LOVES me some GitS and I love your work. You've done a nice job on this piece. I have to say that there's is something "off" about the whole piece though. I think it's a combination of:

    • the mold is a bit more on the realistic side,
    • the proportions are off some,
    • and I guess I've got each of the characters from GitS just etched in my mind from either the manga or the anime series.

      I think the last item really is the thing, and I have to admit that's all me anyways. That being said, if this is a bit of a reimagining of sorts of Batou, I'd say it works. Regardless, it's a nice piece :thumb

    • He should have more shoulder muscle, I think, and the face is off. juuusssttt a lil, but enough to throw you off. Still, it's an awesome piece.

      Like SQ7, I'm a very big fan of the movies and particularly the SAC series, so it's burned into my head too.

    IMO, one of the greatest manga and anime EVER. It's VERY well done on all counts and in every incarnation. :thumb
