    This looks awesome. Wish I had access to the parts...also too bad a 3rd Party hasn't done something like this as yet!

    Thanks, I feel like I'm constantly looking to improve it tho. I keep finding different pieces in the tub that I can use, but I think I like where it's at for now. I did attempt to make a weapon for him over the past few days. I needed longer handles so I used a couple of cheap ball point pen bodies and sanded down some connectors to fit inside. I think it looks okay for now, I just need to do a little paint work and add some other details to finish it off.

    It looks pretty tall compared to Volcanicus in the pic, but in person I think it scales pretty good.

    This is very cool.

    Does your work here have any irreversible/physical modifications to the figures?

    Thanks! And no, there aren’t any mods to the actual figures. Just some paint on the Lego chest bricks and some connector mods to make the staff handle. Once the back beam is in place tho, everything attaches to that.

    I did make a few changes to the weapon tho, I’ll post some pics tomorrow.

    Here is the "final" version of the staff weapon. I might make it slightly longer so he can hold it easier in both hands, but for now it's "done".
