    Mer(snake)Man

    Yesterday I received my free figure for the Frosta dilemma:

    And here we go:


    I remembered the MYP episode "Second Skin". The Snakemen were magically given gills to breathe underwater. I didn't like that idea that much, but thought the neck part of Mer Man was a nice way to somehow reflect that episode.
    As you see I also included Draego Man's hands and part of King Hiss' second skin/armor.
    I'm still thinking about replacing the yellow with silver...
    What do you think?

    hmm! VERY interesting idea! I like the colors very much! I would recommend a brighter shade of your choice of eye color to make his eyes pop more an make him look much more menacing.
    As for the yellow, I agree. Change all the yellow parts to silver an perhaps even silver the belt an it will be flat out AWESOME!!

    But even as it is, its impressive an looks VERY nice!

    I love custom snakemen figures!

    AWESOME figure!

    ....now I need to go make me one of these for my shelf.

    Awesome! Looks very high-up in the ranks; an important Snake Man to be sure. Very cool!

    Great work! I think all he needs is a cool Snakemen-themed belt.

    Wow thanks for all the kind words and advices!

    Here's the result with silver armour parts and yellow eyes:


    Still think the gem in his belt should have a different colour to add some warm tones to his sceme. What do you think?

    Thank you guys!
    BTW I went with metallic blue for the gem to mirror the weapons' color sceme.

    The armor is glued together on the back. I carefully pulled on that V-shaped "flap" on his back until it detached from the glued spots. Then I simply stripped it off the figure and cut off all the green stuff to receive that silver collar.
