Was so psyched for my submission, but needed to make a last-minute tweak... that ended up pretty much destroying the head :-/

It can be fixed, but not by deadline. For what it's worth, it was gonna be my take on Tik-Tok from the Oz stories.

Next time.

Please do show it off once you get a chance to finish him. I only know him from return to Oz (the movie) but would love to see your take on him.

Ditto. I almost picked to do him for this too so I'm really, really curious what you came up with.

Wow, this might be the first time ever where someone tied themselves. (Don't quote me on that drbindy. :shifty:) Congrats to DanOfTheDead's Prime Evil and Soaron. I see now why they were "accidentally" left off the original poll. We'll get with DOTD and see what he wants to do for NJC #89.

Legs - Baroness
Android Spine -Terminator Figure

For two years, Caprica-Six lived on Caprica. Seducing the ambitious, self-obsessed, arrogant men, she worked herself into a position of power to be ready for when the Cylon invasion begins. This position allowed her to gain the trust and loyalty Baltar, she fools him into believing she was a corporate spy, allowing her the ability to secure a lucrative defense contract. Upon the destruction of Caprica, she was able in blend among the surviving inhabitants aboard the colonial fleet. Not one to ever be underestimated, Caprica-Six has been known to play both sides, human and Cylon alike to gain her advantage and maintain her existence.

Dutch Schaefer (Aliens video game) by UncleHappy
I made one of my favourite cyborgs, Dutch Schaefer from the Aliens vs. Predator arcade game put out by Capcom. He's not an exact copy of the source, but is rather my spin on him while trying keep the same visual cues. This was, by far, the most work I have ever put into a custom. It's also my first time painting any sort of camo pattern, so I hope it looks alright.

Wall-E Y3K by Dusty79
An attack on Earth from extraterrestrials was inevitable. Perhaps they saw weakness in a planet attempting to rebuild itself. The year 3000 is when it occurred. It came in the form of sentient robot warriors looking for natural resources. WALL-E had no choice, but to take up arms with the few remaining humans in this ultimate battle to save his home and his life.

WALL-E figure
Arms from a transformer
Chainsaw is a cast
Fire extinguisher is a cast

I'm a bit bummed I didn't get a single vote, but Dan really did deserve that win. Not only did he do a great figure but he did one of a nearly forgotten villain. Great job, Dan.
