    I remember a while back I saw that someone at Deviantart did a photoshop digibash of movie sideswipe to Garrus from Mass effect.
    After playing the new and greatly improved Mass Effect 3 ending, I got all inspired and decided to make one for real.

    Because I didn't want to add damage and the base figure kind of has wings, I call this- Autobot Archangel. Garrus was known as Archangel on Omega before he got his face blown half-way off and rejoined Shepard.

    I bought this random Mass Effect Turian C-Sec officer figure and noticed the packaging said "Garrus" on it.
    Well as the before picture below shows, the figure was NOT my good friend Garrus who my wife had sex with 3 times (in video games).
    I took him to the paint bench and repainted his head to make him the good old Garrus Vakarian we know and love.

    Thanks guys. I should probably add that its not really just a paint job. I ordered the rifle from HLJ, assembled and painted it, resculpted some of his head, and added the eye targeting aid too.

    Garrus is a fantastic character. This is my favorite custom on the citadel.

    I want to, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what mold would work for Tali. If I can't make her, then I don't care to make the others. Her and Garrus were my team through all 3 games.
    I'd need a bot with legs similarly weird like hers, preferably with wide hips and a smaller upper body.

    You know, I have to ask. What did you use for the center fringe? I mean, the gap up there is begging for it, but how did you make that work?

    Well its up on ebay with a Buy Now price that is slightly less than I would have charged to do it for a commission.

    BM Blackarachnia would probably do well...
