    this was my first real "action figure custom" and it was done using a mix of Tamiya enamels and acrylics. this is mostly a 25A Wraith figure, which had some cosmetic alterations done on it, swapped armored cobra commander legs, resculpted faceplate, an added chest pentagon and the shoulderpads were cut from the torso armor and glued to the shoulders.

    last pic also shows the 25A Cobra Crimson Dynamo armored Crimson Guard i made.

    cheers,
    Eisen :D

    Wow, that worked quite well.
    The faceplate sculpt sells it, I'm sold.

    I'm surprised I haven't seen that many Iron man customs with that figure. This one is awesome.

    Great kitbash, although the paint is a little messy. :)

    I can tell it's an older custom due to your paint job, but I have to hand it to you on the modifications you made, it actually looks just like Robert Downy, Jr. Impressive.
