    This was my first "must do" project after seeing the movie...a month and a half later, I finally got it finished. I took over 150 photos of the custom, right now I'm narrowing it down to the best shots to use for the eBay auction (unless someone wants to grab this before that point, lol) but I wanted to share a few now on this thread before heading to bed to get some feedback.

    Without further ado:

    Looks really good. Maybe a little too much rust weathering. I love the throne and the blown up former US president.

    I'm also really interested in the gun. Could you share some of your secrets? What base you used for the shotgun, etc?

    Nice job, never liked Lincoln anyway :p  I love the quote behind him at the memorial, very fitting contrast for the tyrant to sit before.

    Wicked cool.

    Would love to hear more about the creation process - in particular the gun, 'throne' and rust effects.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    As for the gun, it's not 100% accurate, but it's good enough for what I was going for from the image I found in a sticker book at Wal Mart. I did consider sculpting parts, but then decide to just go with what I had.

    Here's the parts list of what I used:

    Animated Spawn Series 30 Spawn X gun
    armor pieces from a Zoids Liger Zero kit
    thigh pads from a Gungam kit
    3 3/4" Darth Maul lightsaber
    Mega Blocks parts
    a ballpoint pen
    paper clips

    I'll upload a shot of the pre painted gun here in a little bit to see if that helps break it down better.

    EDIT: photo added

    Nice, but the chest needs a bit of bulking. And the rust on the head is overdone. Otherwise, a stellar piece.

    My only gripe I think would be his face "wound". Looks a little too rusted out in my opinion, but otherwise, he looks awesome. How'd you make the Lincoln throne?!

    Alt mode looks damn near perfect though. Add on that netting on his hood, and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from the actual truck haha.
