Firelord

    

One of my favorite characters from days gone by, just because I thought he was cool-looking. I started to go with some new-fangled metallic version (a la Silver Surfer and Nova) but instead went for the old school look, as accurate as I could muster. The base is Mattel Superman (from the Batman/Superman 2-pack) with donated hands and head (don't know the name of either). The flames are from the ToyBiz X-Man figure. I was able to rub the red paint off with fingernail polish remover, to let the yellow base show through. Paint scrapage was a major headache on this one, even with lots of cutting and sanding, so I don't pose him too much.
