    Took a wee break from commissions this week to wrap up a couple of my own little personal projects, and this is one of em. All sculpt, styrene, and a chopped up mechanical pencil.

    The idea I had for the weird looking handle was for the side he grips to look mechanical, like it merges with his palm to auto-reload from the same source as his other hand blasters, since it plugs into a tab on his palm. Figured that'd be cooler than just having a rectangular hole in the gun grip, but jury's out on how well that idea did or didn't work.

    Made a holster for it too that latches onto his belt same way the knife does.

    I’m not going to be surprised if you make him a mechanical horse. Not sure what the figure is but it’s cool. Great accessory.

    Astrobot is the figure for those not in the know.

    Surprised you didn't go for a hinge so he could also manually load the shells. Little flip open action would've looked cool.

    Nope, figure is exactly what I said it was. Toys Alliance bought rights to use the 1:12 Astrobot figure body, retooled it for their 1:18 scale Oblivion Land figure line, and this figure is called Bounty Hunter Krivos.

    I couldn't figure why this guy didn't have a gun in the first place! Good job! Now I also need a mech horse for mine...

    I think you’re posting in the right thread if you’re looking for someone who does commissions.

    if anyone can make a mechanical horse, and have it look good, it’s Unicron9.

    Great work as always sir.

    G gundam's master Gundam has a mechanical horse that would be good for a starting template.

    That big chunky thing on Krivos' back is a jetpack, so I don't know that he'd need a horse unless he was real limited on fuel for flight or something. I know one could say he didn't need the shotgun either since he has dual blasters on top of both hands, but I felt a gunslinger cowboy-bot just wasn't complete without some kind of actual gun.
    Not to say a horse wouldn't be cool, and if one came out for him that looked great and wasn't too expensive I might would get it, but I don't know if I would want one enough to spend the amount of time and money it'd take to pull it off well.

    I've moved things around some since the last time I took any pics of that case, but this is the contents and then some.

    1. Your Nero is missing the rest of her dress. Not that I mind them legs, though.

    2. I can tell you changed them because last time the Polynian mecha girl was in a sweet jack-o pose.

    3. Damn We really need a Tohsaka 2.0. That one has not aged well.

    I want this figure to go with my other 3 astrobots...even though its not an official astrobot...would still look great with them. This gun makes me want it even more as I see these as multi useful with GI Joe Classified and other mechanoid beings to combat Autobots/Decepticons as they are fed up with the war that plagues the universe.

    Time and money seem to throw a wrench in all creative ideas. You could just go the silly route and photo him riding some Beast Wars figure. Anyway great custom and fun.

    1. Yeah, unlike Saber Artoria and Lily, Nero's lower dress was just one stiff chunk, greatly limiting the articulation that is a huge part of the whole point of Figmas. I made that lower half removable and made the new short skirt to give her a new look and the ability to pose a lot more. (pic attached below). I have 11 Nero figures... Something is wrong with me.
    2. Heh, yeah, (another pic attached for gigglez).
    3. You sure aren't wrong there... I've been considering selling that one cus she doesn't look great with newer figmas.


    Lol yeah, that would look pretty funny considering the size of Krivos.
