Zombie Giant-Man

Phew, just managed to get this one finished before Hallowe'en so he can join in with all the flesh eating.

Here he is, Zombie Giant-Man!

Zombie Giant-Man is over 13" tall and is made from the Marvel Legends Giant Man figure. Most of the work on this figure went into his face. You see, I added an opening and closing mouth to this figure so that he can get into lots of undead gnawing japes!

I cut Giant-Man's head just below his nose and had to rebuild it all.

I started with adding the zombie teeth for the upper jaw and then constructed a couple of hinges underneath his head. I attached a swinging jaw here and was able to build up from there. I kept the side flaps of his mask so I could attach them later and hide the joing of his jaw and the hinge mechanism.



I was also asked to add in a removable cranium. I sliced the top of his head off and hollowed out the cap and part of his head. I sculpted in a rotten green brain and covered it with some gore. The cap attaches back to the skull with a couple of hidden magnets.

Whatever you do, don't look down. It'll fall off.

Gah, what did we tell you!

Finally I added in some hot glue to the gory areas and painted it with clear red paint to create a nice bloody gore effect, painted the blue areas of his costume as black, and worked a lot of black washes into the costume to dirty it, and then spattered the white areas with clear red to create a bloodied look.

Watch out Giant-Man! You're behind you!

He also has an accessory: a load of guts for him to chew on! These are made from electric wire wrapped around some wobbly, jelly Star Wars toy and then coated in hot glue and painted with clear red.

Braaaaiiiins! (or whatever this issssss!)

Only a beer soaked robo-tramp stands between you and the zombie superhorde!
