    The first thing I thought when I bought Oil Slick is "Hey, this looks like it could be Lobo's bike!". Unfortunately, I can't find any pics of his bike, nothing on Google, Ask.com, or the DC site.

    I grabbed a screen shot of his appearance in the Justice League episode "Hereafter", where Lobo tries to join up with the League when Superman supposedly dies.
    But it is the "american anime" stylized version of his chopper, not what I saw when I read the comics.

    If any Lobo fans, like Lobo :) , happen to have a pic or a scan of his Bike, I'd really like to have a gander at it. I have sold enough customs to fuel my bashing hobby for a while, and this one is DEFINITELY on my list!!

    Thanks, guys.

    I thought of Lobo's bike too, when I first saw Oilslick. It's sort of too bad that he's in that putrid green colour... I think this mold would have had a lot more charm in just about any other deco.

    Ghost Rider's bike looks different all the time these days, so it totally depends on who's drawing it... but originally it was just a fiery chopper, and then the reborn Ghostrider in the late 80's had a stylized skull, but it was a much more modern, non-chopper bike.

    Arguably, Oilslick does resemble the Nick Cage Ghostrider bike, but then... I think that bike was probably ripped off from Lobo's bike, which dates back quite a bit earlier than the Ghost Rider movie.

    I like Ghost Rider, he's cool, for a spirit bent on eternal damnation and vengeance. But Lobo is the man, not to many cats go toe to toe with ol "S" chest.

    I was gonna replace the Ram head with a skull, but in the same place.

    I was thinking Silver and Black, some blue accents...but I wish I had a pic!

    Alright you two, Break it up.......

    If you two are going to do this I want a good clean fight.

    No magic markers or sharpie's.
    Use only approved bashing technique's.
    And lastly, No spray paint to the eye's.

    Now go back to your corners and come out bashing.

    I thought the same thing. Too bad Lobo, I mean Lockdown, doesn't fit on Oilslick. :( 

    I have the old DC Direct Lobo action figure with the bike. I could take pics if your interested. Send me a PM if you are.
