So this is one I’ve been thinking about for a while, and after seeing the Iron Maiden topic by @Altair, I have spent several hours constructing a CCBS version of this villian:
My model isn’t accurate to a t, however I was attempting to rectify one of the (very few) differences between Altair’s MOC and the image, which was the shoulders.
All the other differences are down to lack of parts, and I’ll cover which parts should be where further down.
The Anti-Lewa (because, you know, the similar weapons, and stuff…):
The core build:
The Weapons (Altair’s versions are more accurate, unfortunately I don’t have the correct parts, so this is the closest version I can achieve):
The obligatory Nyran shot, note the spine aesthetic with the rib pieces:
Action pose (both shooters work, and the waist articulation has the gear function):
Aaand the money shot:
You are probably thinking “My son said this was a kids toy line!”
A couple of minor adjustments I would make if I had the parts:
This should be the upper leg shell, with a single long orange spike in the top hole.
Those same spikes should be in the arms in place of the small silver ones.
Otherwise, I think this is accurate to the concept art, and with 116 pieces this perfectly fits into the $20 price bracket, along with Skull Basher, Warrior, Slicer and Scorpio. And with three functions, minimised gaps and a fantastic-looking ribbing, this is the kind of set we wanted from G2 (or at least I did. I was pretty disappointed in the meagre set offerings we got for the villains).
