    MOTUC Galaxy Fighter Iguanus

    Power to Evil! Iguanus

    In the depths of Eternia's past dwells the scourge of the swamp: Iguanus. The original Galaxy Fighter figure was pretty wonky, but I loved Mike Bock's reinvention of the character using vintage parts and I instantly knew that I wanted that version in my classics collection. He's been on my "to do" list for a very long time.

    Mike Bock's custom:

    Recipe:
    Head: Art Asylum Gorn, DCUC Entrigan ears, original Iguantus frill, apoxie sculpt
    Torso: Demo-Man
    Armor: Clawful
    Arms: Demo-man
    Fore arms: Hordak
    Hands: DCSH Parasite
    Belt: Whiplash
    Legs:Whiplash
    Boots:Whiplash

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

    That is an AMAZING figure. The paint job and part choice give him such an incredible vintage feel, which is made even more impressive by the fact that he's made out of modern parts. You've really outdone yourself! Wow!

    If you don't mind me asking, where did you get that Gorn head? Every Art Asylum Gorn I have seen is going for bug bucks. Did you luck out and find one cheap or is it a cast?

    I find this amazing! As a kid I had monsters like this that I would play with my MOTU figures.
    I'm just amazed I just love this! Very well done & very clever use of parts.

    He-mike,
    You have made so many custom heads, have you considered casting them?

    I love the continuity between Bock's custom and yours! Also, excellent paint as per usual!
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

    these are the kind of monsters I loved growing up. I wanted figures like these so bad.
    I still do. I would like to have some like this that would fit perfect with the motuc collection.

    I soooooo wish we had hands like that in MOTUC! Awesome custom, and I'm getting a slight Space Ghost villain vibe from him too (I love that BTW)!

    A good design, he reminds me of the Gorn from Star Trek.
