    Not sure how I came up with this one. Used a Mark II figure from the Iron Man 2 movie line of 3.75" figures, testors paint, and a Decepticon reprolabels sticker.

    I've taken to calling him 'Iron Megs'. :lol

    I need to redo the eyes, and arc reactor/chest glow, and I also need to touch it up a bit in some places, but overall, I'm happy with how he turned out.

    Also, that Revoltech stand I have him on was a total life saver when it came to letting the paint dry.

    Cool concept, all he needs now is a molded bucket head and he'd be all set.

    Looks great, but I'd say he needs more red. Maybe a gun on his back.

    If you squint your eyes, he looks like a guy wearing black undies and leg-warmers.
    Nice idea BTW.

    Oh. Wow. You could totally use this figure as a base for Nightbird herself.
