STRONGARM
Formidable Mercenary

Strongarm was one of my favorite characters back in the day. I always wanted a figure of this guy... My intention was to remain as true to the original cartoon design of the character - while updating him for the new line of action figures!

The Recipe:
1 Tri-Klops figure
1 Marvel Legends Colossus Arm

1 McRam-Man Armor
Sculpey

Many of ya'll have asked about the face... The upper part of the face was derived from a rubber something a rather from a Marvel toy. I was looking at this thing one day and just sort-of saw Strongarm's face in it (Weird, right?! hahaha) With some cutting it began to make more sense. The cranium is derived from Trap-Jaw's helmet. The spikes are straight from Mega-Punch He-Man's armor. The lower jaw is a piece of rubber that I cut and shaved and changed many many times until I got it "right". The teeth are made from a sliver of acetate. Ears are Beastman's. I did quite a bit of sanding cutting shaving , and filling to get the head right. I feel it came out pretty well!

For those of you who intend to copy the recipe keep in mind I used the McDonald's Mini Ram-Man's armor not the Regular 6" figures armor - that was just TOO Big!
