Alex, this is probably a question for you. Do you know what this bloke was released as?
His backside says 1999 LANARD.
Now with those facial stitches and scar over his left eye perhaps suggesting a sabre slash, the gold ear rings and that skull ornament on his little ponytail I was thinking maybe some sort of a pirate?
Have no idea what those green streaks in his hair are meant to represent.
Came as part of a trio I bought on eBay but the seller had no other information.
He's fully articulated, completely nude, all flesh-coloured and NO moulded-on clothing or weaponry at all.
I was going to use his great body with a new head, as I found those non-level eyes a bit off-putting but now having seen him in person he's kind of growing on me as he is.
Hopefully you, or somebody will know what he was originally.
(I have found the same headsculpt used, albeit badly painted, with a moulded on chest armour and sold as "Ultra Corp Plague" but that one has moulded on boots too so this is not him.)

A Pirate maybe? OOFrOe

I dont know, but I'd guess a pirate.

Maybe give him an eyepatch ? That way you wont see the eye wonky-ness cheers Personally I'd either blend in the green streaks with brown or paint them grey.

I think he’s a villain from the lanard corps action figures. I remember I seen him on EBay ages ago and I put a bid on him but I lost the bid in the end. I just love his head sculpt, mostly his scar. They joy of him being naked is he’s now a blank canvas so you can dress him up how you wish and use your creativity to build a background story of him and what he does.

So why are pirates pirates?
No reason, ....they just ARRRRRGHHH! lol!


Thanks Alex, Chris and Jim! I certainly agree with you all.
I had no intention of restoring him to whatever it was that he came as originally, so now I have a ....pirate!
(I will paint out those two green "skunk" stripes though!)
