Custom Koto Archangel by IID Designs

Hi everyone,
This is my recently finished Kotobukiya X-Force Archangel mod, repaint, and base swap piece made for a collector.

The statue base was swapped out with the Sideshow Kitty & Wolverine base, which is a Sentinel boot. The shape of the boot was a pretty natural fit for the Koto Archangel. Some modifications were made to it to get things to all work together. Five wing blades were made and fit to the base as well.

No real changes were made to Archangel himself other than the new paint job and a few of his wingtips being fanned out.

Thanks for looking. Now on to the pics!

I am shocked there are no comments here, allow me to be the first, this was a very cool mod, I loved the wind blades in the sentinel foot. Very nice work, sculpt to paint.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Was it difficult customizing the Sentinel base? I would love to have one for my custom Archangel.

It wasn't too difficult, but it did require a good amount of grinding, drilling, and building up in places. A large portion of the boot toe was built up to accommodate the statue. Also there is color matching involved.

Of course there may be easy ways of doing it, but the buyer had specific ideas on how he wanted it done.
