    Here is my attempt at Octopunch. Still have some touch ups to do on the paint, but this is pretty much done. I tried to get the original feel going but not sure I achieved it.
    I had already done a bludgeon, so I didn't want him to be alone :) 
    I am hoping to do a Stranglehold soon to complete the set.
    All comments both bad and good welcome.

    I actually prefer yours to Aprims. Not knocking his work but functional Pretenders suffer from diminishing returns. You have to make it gargantuan to store a Legends class figure! I like your focus on the iconic shells and can't wait to see more!

    Thank you for the praise!
    Stranglehold is my next big thing, I have a modernised helmet that harkens back to the original, and about 5 wwe figures that are close to what I am after. I have all the pads and the belt, So now its play time.

    That's pretty neat! I dig the cartoon look. What base figure is that?

    It looks a bit like a freakish Ninja Turtle lol
