Hi all! Another scratchbuilt custom that i want to share with you. Here is Metalhead! he's built from a heavily modified ironman 3.75" figure, and lots of putty. i painted him gray with a dry brush of silver. he's closer in scale with the turtles and has got plenty of articulation which were two of my targets for this custom. i'm pretty happy with the result. hope you all like it!

Enjoy and thanks for looking!:tsmile:

Nice! I like how he's in scale now. It would've been cool if the official figure was in scale, but I guess they couldn't of made him too small.

thanks! yeah would've been cool if the official figure was a little bit smaller. i guess they could've added elbow joints and/or interchangeable hand weapons and accessories to compensate for the size. but yeah the bigger figure is cool in some ways too.

Very cool. That's one thing about the playmates figure that bothered me - barely any articulation. Awesome to see Metalhead in some cool poses.

Thanks! yeah you said it. you gotta give them credit for giving the turtles plenty of articulation though. but you're right, rest of the figures are just lacking in articulation and it sometimes bothers me as well. hope they get around in improving them in the future
