Micronauts: Baron Karza - Customized!
[Swipe Left For The Missile-less Version!]
So, up until semi-recently, I wasn't even aware that Baron Karza existed. When I discovered of his existence, I really liked his wicked cool helmet design, spring-loaded rocket punch powah a la Mazinger/Great Mazinger, and Micronauts' unique/killer "magno-power", a.k.a., interchangeable body parts powered by magnets. So, I searched, and found The Baron on eBay.
Shortly thereafter, The Baron asked for a cape [every villain needs a cape!], and, originally, I gave him a used Darth Vader cape [but I didn't tell him where it came from... the comparisons and whatnot...]. The Baron liked it, but it wasn't quite a perfect fit.
So, I went on an eBay search yet again, and I found a Micronauts' Emperor [who had a cape... and a glove/sword combo!].
What I never told The Baron is I didn't like certain aspects of his uniform's design [the orange shapes on his chest and abdomen, that were holdovers from Microman Magnemo: Kotetsu Jeeg's/Steel Jeeg's design, which The Baron was reconfigured from], and that part of my plan for him and The Emperor was to take parts of The Emperor's uniform and use them to customize The Baron's. This required some serious surgery...
Today, I did that surgery, and it was... a semi-success with no casualties. Picture 1 is of the newly reconfigured Baron; also wearing The Emperor's cape, glove/sword combo, and belt missile. Picture 2 is of the new reconfigured Baron; also wearing The Emperor's cape and glove/sword combo [no belt missile].
