    Okay here is finally my wip Iganus based on the IDW comics. I loved this bike ever since I saw him and when I saw Iguanus in the comics I thought of this guy and now I have started making him. So far the materials used are dark mount and skull grin axe pick/blades from his cannon, kamen rider stryke shoulder pads, 1mm polystyrene. I will be doing more to him as I don't like the back piece as you need the planet key to easily activate it so I will more then likely make my own weapon with probably using seeker missile launchers for it. I also put up a picture of the trike version, not that effective. Well enjoy and as always positive criticisim is always welcomed.

    the problem is that I need a head that looks like the one from the comics and I can't figure out how to do that on google sketch and I can't afford some one to design one for me.

    I think this project is perfectly sound. I do agree on your advice to paint it, though.

    It's a good call on the base mold. I'd be interested to see what your ideas would be for the Prentender shell. Guys like aprim have really been doing some good work on that aspect of custom Pretenders.

    As far as the head is concerned, I'd advice looking at some existing figures. Even if you have to modify a head, you may be better of going that route. I hope that helps! Keep at this!

    thanks, I may have to let this guy sit for a bit until I can find a junker rattrap for him as I need one for the head as it matches it perfectly.
