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!
1 Tri-Klops figure
1 Marvel Legends Colossus Arm
1 McRam-Man Armor
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!
