    I normally don't post my non-TF customs here, but dammit I'm proud of this one:
    Revoltech 'Senator Armstrong'!

    Took a revoltech Kinnikuman and gave him a completely new head, sculpted in facelines, contour putty'd hair into existence.
    - Took one of the bodies&biceps and turned it into a rolled up dress shirt with a yellow twist-tie as a tie.
    - Used twist-tie wire(stripped) to create the chest veins on his bare chest and his "heart-nest".
    - Made a resin cast of his forearms&fists to have swappable "Nanomachine" versions with a black elbow joint(no wrist joint).
    - Replaced the wrestler sneakers with Revoltech Alucard shoes.
    - Hand-made the pants from scratch. The outer lining was also stitched so that it looks like it's ripping at the seams. The zipper was done with a simple fold&stitch. The belt was made from brown lace ribbon folded over and then a gold buckle was painted on.
    -The swappable bare chest torso also has fabric attached near the waist joint that is cut&burnt to mimic Armstrong's torn-off look from the game.
    - Lift the wristbands from the original figure and turned them into analog wrist watches.
    - And of course a generous painting of the chest/head to get the colors and fire-roasted skin from the game.

    This was...both a tremendous undertaking and a joy to get right. But I'm so happy with the result that I don't even vaguely care.

    They harden in response to physical trauma.
