    Thanks, guys. I would like to do Sigma, but I'm not sure where to begin. I really like his super-clean X5 look, as well as the newer take on the X1 version. He's also got his robot dog, Velgauder, his Kaiser Sigma form from X3, his Death-incarnate-esque form from X4, his gestalt form in X1... so many possibilities.

    14-33-48_0.235026.gif oh yea Dr. light in his street fighter outfit shows up to give you the devastating one shot one kill hadoken that was awesome


    Alty you got some good taste there cuz to me x5 sigma is the coolest looking one in my opinion. I say stick to the original sigma from x1 since you got all the mavericks going from the first game. How about a gijoe sigma 6 duke head as a starter?

    hopefully that helps :)

    Yeah, I think I'm going to roll with the X1 version. I might get crazy and remake Sigma with each set of Mavericks that I do later on. I snatched up one of those Dukes on Ebay earlier. We'll see how it goes. Thanks. :)

    I've begun building up the 'traps' on either side of the head, to better line everything up with the way the shoulders sit.

    I also started sculpting the head last night. There's quite a few more layers to go, but I think it reads well.

    Finally getting some parts primed, as well. I have slight imperfections to correct with the feet. They'll be ready to show off soon.

    I picked up a few sheets of sticker gems at Michael's. When I saw them, I had an epiphany.

    Almost there. Well, not really. There is still a lot of work to be done. I need to mount the backpack tentacles, clean up the back in general, finish the head sculpt, maybe rebuild the left shoulder joint (the 'arms' on that side sag a little). Paint apps were test runs, so don't get too excited about that. They were successful in that I have a lot of corrections to make. :)  Enjoy.

    Huzzah! It lives!! Great to see this figure assembled, even partially...the whole silhouette looks solid, and the tentacles are very dynamic (especially with the fish torpedo effect). Kudos! As always, can't wait to see more!
