Nextwave Machine Man, Nick Fury: Punisher Arcade game

Recommended Posts

Fear his robot head fleshy ones, it's Machine Man! Straight from the Nextwave comics series I bring you this custom Aaron Stack created in Marvel Legends form. He was created using the man-thing wave Bullseye's body/hands, Punisher coat and arms, resculpted evil Warlock head, and Aves Studios apoxie sculpt detailing. His weapon pods can be attached to his wrists and are created from lots of fodder tech-weapon parts from various lines. You can also equip Machine Man with his trademark extendo-wrists. The entire figure was airbrushed with shadows, highlights, and sealed with Liquitex archival varnish.

He's the director of SHIELD but this time he's teamed up with the Punisher for some vigilante justice, it's Nick Fury! The 1993 Punisher Arcade Game featured Nick as the player 2 character and here I created him in Marvel Legends form to scale alongside your Punisher from the retro/vintage card series of ML. Nick Fury uses the same Punisher body, modded Nick Fury head/webgear, and medium body feet. Demo man's belt/leg holster were used and various details sculpted using Aves apoxie sculpt. I originally painted his sweater a mottled brown color to match the game sprite but found the original Japanese game art depicting him in a much better looking orange and went with that, airbrushing the entire figure with shading and highlights. Add a stogie like he smokes through the entire game, even while fighting, and Nick fury was ready to fight alongside the Punisher!

    • Okay, I'm gonna approach this from an angle of another post where I basically theorized that the Avengers will eventually become the comic based waves once this phase of the MCU ends and the X-Men & F4 franchises take center stage. I'm probably breaking protocol, but I'm listing them as entire waves as I've been thinking about these for a long time and arranged them in a way where they wouldn't require more than 2 new sculpts per wave, plus the BAF, which is almost always the formula for every wave that isn't a movie wave, which almost requires all new sculpts. They are very simplistic waves that could be done very easily at minimal cost. I've often wondered why they haven't tried to do at least one wave like this during non-movie years. Seems like such a waste cuz it seems to work pretty well with the Spider-Man waves. This can fill a lot of holes by making at least 1 Avengers, 1 Captain America & 1 Iron Man wave per year. Here's my first suggestions for the first waves. Avengers Comic Wave: 1. Captain America (current, restored) - Need a new one, the last modern Cap just doesn't hold up to the new crop of figs. 2. Iron Man - Jus cuz they expect to see him. Maybe a new Extremis, cuz as you know, the old one is now a chick. 3. Thor - We need a modern restored version with ANKLE PIVOT at a reasonable size like the Odinson buck. 4. Falcon - This has been one of the most overlooked figures in modern ML. Ya, we got the Captain version but he's back to himself & for God sake, give him wings. 5. Hercules - Similar to Falcon, long overdue. I know Hasbro can knock this one outta the park. The 4" figures was one of the best in the line. 6. Tigra - This is one of the most anticipated figures badly in need of a redo since that last terrible attempt. Don't tone it down too much either. Angela was pretty well received in that sense. 7. Quicksilver - Redo of the old one or a modern look. It's just so ridiculous, this mutant vs Avenger thing. He's an Avenger. They can't talk about doing an Avengers beast & then say no we can't do Firestart or Quicksilver cuz they're mutants. BAF - Hulk, just freakin' Hulk. Nothe the McGuiness version, no Doc Green on a BS MCU buck. Just a be all/end all, perfect, all arguments ending, definitive Hulk on the Ragnarok Hulk buck. Even include an Amadaeus Cho head swap if you wanna round out that Champions roster, tho technically I think they're 2 different shades of green, but who cares.   Iron Man Comic Wave: 1. Iron Man - Any Iron Man just cuz he has to be there. Silver Centurion or Superior armors haven't been done by Hasbro yet. Let's start there. 2. Crimson Dynamo - Yes I know they already did one & made a pretty good effort but that figure was quite flimsy or gummy (weird) & it just doesn't scale with the current figures. 3. Maria Hill - Give her the Nick Fury treatment. Include a Slingshot head swap with some attachable forearm cybernetics and a standard issue SHIELD helmeted female head and we get triple value & multiple sales. It's almost a no-brainer 4. Living Laser - This is such an easy figure to make out of existing bucks. The 4" line showed us how good you can make reused molds look. 5. Mandarin - Just do this already. Every one done to this point has been a massive deuce. There's not much to compare to. 6. War Freakin' Machine - Again, I can't believe this is an issue. Just get it done. (PS, I lied. I guess this one will require a 3rd new sculpt) 7. Whiplash - Two Vankos in a wave? Who cares. They're both cool characters in need of the plastic treatment BAF: Titanium Man - I know, he's been done and similar to Dynamo he was done well, for the time but it's a better time for ML now and we need a new one and an awesome version of the big menacing one would be great. Maybe evendors a Gremlin mini figure behind the chest plate.   Captain America Comic Wave: 1. Hydra Cap - I know it was short lived but it beats the hell outta that lame concept art Secret Mission Cap they did before. 2. USAgent - Yes, another that's been done before but it was on the wrong buck & we all know it. Update it on the Reaper buck or even the Hyperion or Odinson buck. 3. Sharon Carter (in white uniform) - Just as with Maria Hill, include Quake head swap with arm bracers & A SHIELD helmeted head. This is pure gold guys. 4. Diamondback - This is another one that would be so easy using any number of the existing molds. 5. Winter Soldier - Some people think the MCU version looks enough like the comic version to suffice, but I'm not one of them. It's like saying the MCU Iron Man is good enough to be serve as the comic IM. They're just two different looks. 6. Crossbones - The last one was way too big and on a horribly dated mold. He's big, but he shouldn't be much bigger than the Odinson buck. 7. Nomad - Another easy repaint using any number of existing molds. Maybe the ANAD Spidey 2099 buck. BAF: Bushmaster - Another one for the Serpent Society. My first instinct was for MODOK, but in all actuality the TB one still holds up very well. Can Hasbro out do it? Probably, but let's concentrate on the ones that haven't been made yet.
    • This is great, my kids have been wanting more Marvel comics at their level. Hope this works out.
    • Wonder how the new Phoenix will play out in the next X-Men movie. DoFP set up a good comeback, but Apocalypse was lackluster. Will we get another DoFP or a repeat of Last Stand?
    • Agreed, you’d think there’d be more offerings with all his IW armor features. Especially in that Thanos, Dr. Strange 3-pack.
    • The Netflix Punisher is my favorite live action version of the character, but I still enjoyed Warzone. Ray Stevenson was a solid Frank Castle.
