Elias Graves, Space Cowboy

Elias Graves, a man who's not just been to the edge of the universe, but has damn near circumnavigated it... of course, he only stopped at the places he could trade lead and superheated plasma for gold and unobtainium. Sometimes that trading is taxed by an arm and two legs, but when you've cornered the market on interstellar money transfer interception, you can afford the best prosthetics money can buy. Or you can opt for the substantially cheaper, tougher and more intimidating industrial robot parts retrofitted to serve as makeshift limb replacements. You can guess which option Elias chose...

Plasma rifle made from Brick Forge Coilgun and some parts of two Lee Enfields from Brickarms. The legs and arm are modified Exo-Force.

That rifle is SO FREAKING AWESOME.
The whole fig is amazing, as well.

You can say Brickarms, we don't mind ;)

I like the overall look of this figure. The rifle and cyber arm really take make it though.

Well done. :D

Words do not suffice. Incredible modding. The brickarms rifle with the Coilgun bits looks fantastic. Love the exo-force robot limb bits as well. Incredibly cool!

This is cool. I happen to like the modded legs the best. It's something you don't see often. Sometimes you have to name the other customized piece for those of us that don't know what they are, like me.

I think the most impressive part of this minifig is how clean the mods are. I also love how realistic the rifle looks, like I could actually find a gun that looks like that, with the gaps in the wood and everything. Is his left hand just a regular hinifig hand stuck in a peice of flex tube and put in the arm?

Thanks! And the left hand is a modified Exo-Force claw. I trimmed the bar part of it down, and filed the sides of the claw down to be flat with an emery board. I actually use emery boards quite often for sanding.
