    Octopunch, one of the Mayhem Attack Squad and one of the ugliest Pretender Shells Hasbro Ever released. Walking in TRU I seen the BioShock Big Daddy and I knew i had to use it.
    How cool would it be to do a custom of Octopunch with this head plus some hulking muscles.

    At first I tried to do a more robotic frame with Octo arms but after researching the character I decided to go more organic/mosterous.

    I used Marvel Legends Abomination as a body, Bioshock Helmets and various other things in my scrap pile. Also cut up a G1 Octopunch Shell, i put his head and painted it inside the Helmet. It looks great but i can seem to get my Camara to take a close pic of it.
    The Octo Arms were a real Bitch to find. I didn't want him to be DOC OCK, I wanted movable Octo arms..Not easy for me to find.

    I put a LED in the Helmet which has a switch in the back of the oxygen tank,

    I used a Beast Wars Razor Claw ( which i hate) for the little bot..
    Made some changes and hooked him up.

    Thanks for checking him out.

    Amazing work, man! These have quickly become signature pieces by you and you certainly put a LOT of hard work into them, from the looks of it. Can't wait to see what you do next!

    This custom is freakin' awesome! I love that using the Abomination, Big Daddy, and random parts to make this amazing monstrosity and the paint helps with that as well. Great work, aprim!

    That is hideously beautiful! :D  I was hoping you'd do some suitable mods to Razorclaw to tech him up, and you didn't let me down.
    I love all your Pretender reinventions so far, and I can't wait to see who's next!
