Kickback - Single carded figure
Filecard by Charles Cushman (Raptor)
I wanted to create a "named" character for
the SWARM concept. All I had for a long time was an idea to do
something with those Star Wars Robotic Legs. After tinkering around, I
sanded down a BAT torso to fit flush and added the upper arms. The
lower arms came a little later through Iron Man parts and random pieces
laying around. The wings were acquired in the PIF box. I could not find
anything that resembled an insectoid head, so decided to try to make
one using the Data Viper helmet and the spacers that are in the leg
joints of Modern Era joes. I was aiming for a bug look, with multiple
eyes. The figure comes out looking pretty different, but I honestly
can't decide if I like it or not. I don't do alot of non-human builds,
that could be part of it.
