SPECIAL FEATURES



Inter changeable Cannon arm inspired by the Transformers 3D ride Megatron as well as the cannon arm used in the DOTM video game. Simply pull out the Movie accurate arm from its socket and insert the cannon arm, this process takes seconds and the strong Lego technic joints I have used are designed for this !

Quality Fakebusker designed Shapeways articulated Right (leathful) hand which was custom made as a special order (many thanks to Leathful customs for arranging and requesting these and fakebusker for reworking the orginal evil hand and getting them produced for us so quickly.

Almost every panel and detail on this fig has been scratch built using styrene, for example the shoulder panels were scratch built by me using epoxy resin and styrene and so they are totally unique and you cant just walk into a shop and get them or find them on another toy.

Inspired by Leathful customs I have used real rubber tires which are very screen accurate

The figure has a shotgun holder which the gun clips into. This is much more accurate than other customs I have seen where the gun pegs into the back.

Stability has been greatly improved on this version and the ratcheted articulated rear toes can be finely adjusted to suit the pose of the figure



Articulated right talon hand with ultra posible hinge jointed talons


Custom made cloak which has been stained, scorched and been stiffened to give it a wind swept look


Led EFFECT painted eyes and head damage




Real metal chains


The shotgun was bought from ebay and I have modified the front by adding the cooling holes. I have also modified the handle to fit the shapways hand and also made a more movie accurate handle which slides on when the gun is clipped in his back holster (see pic)



The Lincoln Throne

The throne has been built from scratch and features rubber feet for surface protection and stability and an internal storage compartment to store his weapons and tarp when not in use. The storage tray has been lined with rubber to protect the finish of the weapons.

Motto: "If I win again I'm still the champion. If you win HAH! that's just impossible.

Weapon: tea cup."
Although I don't like the idea of non transforming Transformers this is effing awesome! The throne is a really great addition.
