    All machines requires some kind of mechanic! Kitbash...

    I unfortunately stole this idea from a boardie here, but man, it was just too sweet to pass on trying! I did several things that are different from the original, although it didn't turn out as nice. This is a female mechanic from the WWR universe (Ashley Wood for those not familiar, google him!). I've got a backstory for you on her but I won't bore you with that. Here's the goods.

    nice job on the mechanic, the patient looks a little nervous.

    Thanks for the compliments! The headsculpt is a butchered Sideshow Pamela Vorhees. I had bought the Pamela Vorhees figure a while back for $7 shipped so I decided to put it to good use.

    Cool!
    Amazing how much covering the face of a figure can do for the look!
    Great stuff!

    Yep! I've just got to where I don't throw any parts away. I used an old shirt from another figure to make the scarf. A little dye, some scissors, and viola, a handmade scarf/face covering!

    NO DOUBT! idreamoftoshiba's female mech was the inspiration for mine. I thought about getting the same sculpt, but decided that I'd do something a little different with mine. While I like his much more than mine, the bash I did was fun and works for me. It only cost me about $10 in materials since I stole from other figures I had so not bad considering I think!

    I actually may pick up a female sculpt for the body and add some more weathering. Still can't decide.
