The overall pose definitely has to be more dynamic. As for his "lifted from the ground" suggestion, I'm all for it if it can be done. It might be difficult though considering how XM doesn't hollow out their statues. The two tentacles on the bottom won't be able to hold up the rest of the statue.

Maybe even a removable lab coat option?

The pose needs to be more dynamic. Make him look like he's reaching forward to grab somebody using his right hand.

If possible, use the bottom two tentacles to support the whole statue. In other words, make Dr. Octopus suspended by the bottom two tentacles.

A change of head with sunglasses...not goggle.

The head needs more expression. I prefer him to have a grin or show some teeth.

And...I am done.

BTW, I don't think he's too fat. Not all villians are body builders.
These are good suggestions.

I remember thinking the part in SM2 where he uses the tentacle to take off his glasses was awesome!

I think something like this could reach Grail status. It's different from anything else I've seen.

Yup. Its has more XM essence than the one shown. For me, it is too static. Need more fluidity. Need that XM flare like the pic I posted. Using his tentacles as his extra hands.

Good call toe and Remember Me. I am down with all of those suggestions and think they will put this piece over the top if XM can incorporate them into the design.

Woohoo, finally! was hoping this wasn't gonna be sidetracked / halted by the recent SS announcement. Glad its all still going ahead.

Yeah, maybe even a lab coat rather than just a coat.

Agreed on the toning down of muscles and belly.

Was really hoping this would have had him off the ground. That's my biggest thing with this. I just don't picture him walking on the floor at all but rather nonchalantly hanging in mid air whilst his tentacles did all the hard work.

Wish they were a bit longer too cos, when I picture Doc vs Spidey it's always those comic book pages (larsen I think) where they were really long and sidey was having to do some major weaving in and out. That for me was spidey vs doc at its best. but I understand the restrictions and i guess you could say that they are coiled up like a slinky.

Gun doesn't seem completely in line with the character to me. Each to his own though. Guess it could be a SO.

As for the pose I would prefer maybe with slighlty more movement in, the tentacles should look like they are ready to strike (like a snake) and maybe he could be leaning forward.

Will be interesting to see how this all pans out against the SS pieces. This will be hard to beat.

Another knockout in the making.
