Well here's my "what I did" post for the Mitt Kerr figure I entered into the Sci-Fi Contest. It started out as a Sabertooth figure Kneejoint gave to me (thanks buddy) that was going to become the alien figure for a pair that I had planned. Long story short, life took over and I only had time to bash one. I wanted an ape/lizard-like alien that stood about 4' next to the human, but as I started to design it, something felt oddly familiar about it. After a good hard look I had a flashback to the Thundercats cartoon and realized I was building the character Slithe. After doing some research, I kinda went with it. I sculpted a rough sculpey head to get a feel for the overall figure. It was all designed on the fly, nothing really planned before hand. The pack was sculpted with a film canister and some Magicsculpt with odds and ends parts, a bottle top and plastic gear and lightsaber handle. I tried out a double jointed bionicle neck post to give the head as much mobility as possible. Then I just tried different things until it looked right. It went through some major transitions with armor, bags, shemagh, weapons, but I tried to stay with a less is more attitude and realized he would be a seasoned veteran who didn't carry much weaponry.
