love the mecha goji head
G. I. Mecha Goji Woo Bootleg something?! I dig!!!
Thanks guys. I definitely cant wait to paint it
Lookin' sweet. So what are all the parts pulled from/inspired by? The torso sure reminds me of the 80s Rambo figures. Brings back a lot of memories...
So here's how it came to be...... I was at a flea market months ago and I saw this box full of broken Gi Joe parts as well as many other 80's action figures, so I bought it. I thought It would help with understanding how a lot of these figures are made and also to give inspiration. So... I was messing around trying to put back together so of those Joe's but had really no success, so I decided to try to put them together with clay and then mold them. So i put the torso and the legs together and then I was thinking wouldn't it be funny to put a Mecha Goji head on it. Then I was like it needs some arms and I didn't like any of the arms I had (plus any arms I liked would have needed to be made in a two part mold and I havent made one of those yet) so I made some arms. I was thinking tree stump arm and space arm. Then I used clay and real hands to create the hands. I guess I just wanted to make the most odd random looking creature and here it is. Im still figuring out how to do the articulation. Right now Im using tooth picks, Any ideas?
I plan to do three different heads and maybe some different hands as well.
The arms are wonderful !
HE ROCKS!! Love it man, nice work.
WOW thank you so much guys
