    MOTUC Red Gygor

    It's been waaay to long since I've posted something. Here is my custom Red Gygor based on the unused concept illustration depicted in the Power and Honor Foundation's catalog, that I made for Powercon's customs panel with Joe Amaro, Master English and Hunter Knight (thanks guys for making that possible). As soon as I received my copy of the catalog at the inaugural Powercon, I couldn't put it down. When i flipped to the page with "red gygor" I knew instantly that I had to make him. One of the fun qualities motu has always been the balance of figures, ie: Battle Cat vs Pathor, Stridor vs. Night Stalker, Gygor vs RED GYGOR!

    Guns Blazing!


    Stand down position




    To start, I drew the basic shape of the new armor on the Gygor Buck so I could see how it would all fit. After getting the design settled, I started building up the armor using Aves Apoxie Sculpt and styrene


    More styrene and Apoxie


    Belly Shield Detail: That's Optikk's sheild center!


    Belly Shield Profile


    Guns! I gave the gun mounts articulation with Lego Galidor parts covered in rubber ring washers


    Ready for paint!
    At this time, I'm not taking commissions or selling any of my customs. Sorry everyone, I'm just a tease.

    Cool piece!

    Funny thing is I posted about a "Good" version of Gygor and it get's ignored because yes it is a good version just like Battle Cat/Panthor Zoar/Screeech etc.

    Yes, this was at Powercon 2012 on display with Joe Amaro's Ram-Man over at Master English's booth. Lego pieces used on this guy are: Galidor joints for the Gun arms, white disc on Belly Shield and flattened "cone" bricks for the gun barrel ends.

    Nothing short of stunning! This guy would so kick Gygors ass. I need to give styrene a shot at some point, looking at your work with it, it seems to work great.
