made the figure for two reasons -- to create another superhero who is larger
than average (FYI: Rampage has the power to turn orange and grow up
to 10' in height), and to get rid of all those super large She-Hulk
figures lying around.
First, I removed She-Hulk's hair, and then I built an armature out of large paperclips for her new do. Over this armature I used sculpey to build up her mohawk and rat-tail. I also used sculpey to create the mechanical restraining collar she wears around her neck to keep her powers in check.
After baking the sculpey with a lighter (not recommended, because I burned off her nose!), I glued rubber bands around the edges of her costume. Then I painted the figure with acrylics and drew scales on her outfit with an ink pen. Even though Rampage is usually shown in bare feet, I decided to leave She-Hulk's boots because I didn't feel like changing them. However I did add a rubber band cuff on her boots for consistancy with her outfit.
A while after completing this project, I found the absolutely most perfect base figure for Rampage -- the mohawk-version of the Savage She-Dragon. But since my local comic shop has her priced at $35, I won't be using her for custom fodder anytime soon.
